Worldwide Mobile Phone Semiconductor Market Shares, 2017: Apple and Qualcomm Still Have a Heavy Influence on the Mobile Phone Semiconductor Market
This IDC study provides the worldwide market and vendor share results for mobile phone semiconductors — specifically discrete application processors, discrete baseband processors, integrated baseband processors, transceivers, power amplifiers, and RF front ends — for the calendar year of 2017.'"Qualcomm still dominates the mobile phone market with 35.7% of revenue for mobile phone semiconductors in 2017, up from 32.6% in 2016," said Phil Solis, research director, Connectivity and Smartphone Semiconductors. "The mobile phone market is flat in terms of shipments, and while the mobile phone semiconductor market grew 5.1% in 2017, it was also relatively flat from 2015 to 2017. Bright spots are found in the shift to more capable integrated platforms with 15.2% growth and the RF front end market with 13.1% growth fueled by the increasing complexity of 4G RF implementations in the higher end of the smartphone market.
