Intel, Samsung and Toshiba top semiconductor firms

Posted on Friday, November 30 2007 @ 07:25:59 CET by


Research firm iSupply released preliminary 2007 global semiconductor market figures:
Case in point is the world's largest semiconductor supplier, Intel, whose chip revenue is expected to rise 7.7% in 2007 to reach US$33.97 billion in 2007, up from US$31.5 billion in 2006, according to iSuppli. Intel exceeded the overall semiconductor industry growth rate of 4.1% in 2007 and massively outperformed its PC microprocessor rival, AMD, whose sales are expected to decline by 22.7% for the year.

"Throughout most of the year, Intel successfully defended much of the market share that it won from AMD in the first quarter in the PC microprocessor segment due to the success of its lines of dual- and quad-core chips," said Dale Ford, vice president, market intelligence, for iSuppli. "This represents a major reversal of fortune compared to 2006, when AMD had the advantage with its popular dual-core microprocessors, allowing it to gain share from Intel."

Intel's market-share rose to 12.5% in 2007, up from 12.1% in 2006. After rising into the Top-10 rankings for the first time ever last year, AMD's revenue decline is expected to cause it to drop back to 11th place in 2007, down from eighth place in 2006. AMD's semiconductor revenue in 2007 is set to fall to US$5.8 billion, down from US$7.5 billion in 2006.
