Intel regains lost marketshare

Posted on Wednesday, December 19 2007 @ 04:17:08 CET by


Gartner has released its 2007 estimate of the revenues of the semiconductor industry. The firm claims Intel regained what it had lost in 2006 and that Toshiba achieved a 28% revenue growth.
The Gartner report almost exactly mirrors revenue estimates published earlier this month by iSuppli. The big news among the semiconductor top 10 of course is that Intel’s turn-around is reflected by solid chip revenue growth. In 2006, the competitive pressure from AMD brought Intel a 9.5% decrease in revenues, which resulted in a rather dramatic drop of the firm’s market share from 14.7% to 11.6%. In 2007, Gartner estimates that Intel was able to improve its revenue by 8.2% to 32.9 billion - not quite the level of the $34.6 billion in 2005 – but enough to lift the firm’s market share to 12.2%.

“Intel’s growth came primarily from strong shipments of mobile PCs”, Gartner said. “Armed with a strong product lineup for enthusiast desktops and servers, Intel regained lost share in those markets from AMD.”

Samsung remained in #2 with $20.9 billion in chip revenues and a 7.7% market share. Toshiba, ranked at position 5 in 2006 jumped into third, with revenues climbing almost 28% from $9.8 billion to $12.5 billion. The company replaced Texas Instruments, which was among three companies that are estimated to have seen declining revenues in 2007: Gartner believes TI’s sales dropped by 4.2% to $11.5 billion.
