Hello everyone|this is The Developing China. Welcome to our Channel. Today|we will discuss a topic with you.
Today|let’s focus on the issue of China company MediaTek surpasses American company Qualcomm to become leading smartphone chipset vendor. This time I am going to talk about an issue which concerns everyone: MediaTek once again tops the mobile phone chip market. In the mobile phone chip market this year|MediaTek’s performance is really very good. In general|when we talk about the chips that come inside our computers or smartphones|we tend to think of certain companies as well. AMD and Intel in the field of computers|for example|as well as MediaTek and Qualcomm in the field of mobile chips. MediaTek chips are produced in one of the most advanced manufacturing processes by another Taiwanese company called Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company. Many people may be thinking|is Qualcomm losing to MediaTek? Why do user prefer Media Tek over Qualcomm?
In the first quarter of 2021|MediaTek ranked first with a market share of 35%|an increase of 11% year-on-year|while Qualcomm ranked second with 29%. In the second quarter of 2021|MediaTek continued to rank first with a market share of 43%|while Qualcomm ranked second at 24%. Although it still ranked second|it has become farther and farther away from MediaTek.
Under the relevant restrictions|some people are happy and some are worried. Especially for the Chinese market|Qualcomm’s market share has gradually declined after being restricted from cooperation. Previously|as the only partner of domestic mobile phones|it has gradually stopped supplying Huawei’s chip supply. Having lost their international reputation|domestic mobile phone manufacturers also understood that they cannot put « eggs in one basket! » and began to seek chip suppliers other than Qualcomm.
