AMD becomes second-largest fabless chip company

Posted on Tuesday, January 19 2010 @ 15:57:39 CET by


A report by market research company IC Insights found that AMD has jumped into the fabless chip company rankings at number two, due to the spinoff of its manufacturing plants to GlobalFoundries.
There were nine fabless IC companies in 2009 that had sales of $1.0 billion or more. IC Insights has included all of AMD's 2009 sales although the spin-off occurred late in Q1 2009.

Not including AMD, the top 10 fabless companies' sales, in total, declined 4 percent in 2009 while the remainder of the fabless companies' IC sales dropped 13 percent, reflecting the difficult economic circumstances experienced by almost all chip companies. However, that lesser decline by the top ten means that their share of the total fabless IC sales rose to 65 percent in 2009, up five points from 2007.
