Worldwide Mobile Phone Semiconductor Market Shares, 2021: MediaTek Closes the Gap with Qualcomm in Processor Shipments, Yet Qualcomm Pulls Ahead Farther in Overall Revenue


Phil Solis

This IDC study provides the top vendor rankings for the worldwide mobile phone semiconductor market for 2021.

"MediaTek ships more SoCs covering discrete application processors and integrated baseband processors than Qualcomm, but Qualcomm ships more processors when including the discrete baseband processors Qualcomm sells to Apple," said Phil Solis, research director, Connectivity and Smartphone Semiconductors at IDC. "Qualcomm is still far ahead of MediaTek in revenue for these processors, and when looking across processors and RF components, Qualcomm had more than double MediaTek's revenue in 2021 as Qualcomm capitalized well on premium and flagship business and expanded quickly with its RFFE business. MediaTek is starting to change this trajectory with its expansion into higher-end SoCs, the U.S. and European markets, and upcoming mmWave components."
