Research institutions IC insights forecast, this year before the global semiconductor sales top ten will still to elders hole dominated, estimated Intel, Samsung and Qualcomm will still ranked the top three global semiconductor IC sales amount. It is worth noting that, in En Zhipu (NXP), Carle (Freescale) after the merger of the two strong, this year is expected to be among the top ten of the forest.
IC insights pointed out that last year semiconductor sales of the top ten manufacturers sales total amount of 1877 billion dollars, accounted for the proportion of the total amount of global semiconductor sales, also from 2006 45% increased to 53%, showing the trend of Semiconductor Industry Hengda more hasten is apparent.
According to the statistics of the IC insights last year semiconductor sales before ten Dachang sequentially for Intel, Samsung, Qualcomm, micron, SK Hynix, Texas Instruments, Toshiba, Broadcom, meaning law semiconductor and Renesas.
IC insights of semiconductor manufacturers over the years to the layout changes significantly, especially flourished in the Japanese semiconductor manufacturers dominate the increasingly weakened. IC insights pointed out that in the 1990s as the golden age of Japanese semiconductor makers, when global top ten semiconductor factory, Japan accounted for six seats, including NEC, Toshiba, Hitachi, Fujitsu, are very market dominance of manufacturers. But in 2014, the global semiconductor sales of the top ten vendors only Toshiba, Renesas two seats.
Looking to the year ahead, IC insights forecast, NXP, fly think of Carl two strong merger is expected to squeeze into seventh global semiconductor sales. This year's top ten estimation according to the order for Intel, Samsung, Qualcomm, SK Hynix and micron, Texas Instruments, NXP / fly think of Carl, Toshiba, Broadcom, meaning law semiconductor, Renesas will fall out of the top ten.
IC insights believes that future semiconductor great Evergrande trend will become more obvious; because it is throwing money to invest in advanced technology of semiconductor giant will be less and less, estimated the top ten semiconductor manufacturers sales amount in the world accounting, from 53% in 2014 to enhance.
