Worldwide Mobile Phone Semiconductor Market Shares, 2018: Qualcomm Grows with Chinese Vendors and Positions Itself for More Growth with 5G

By: Phil SolisResearch Director, Connectivity and Smartphone Semiconductors

Abstract

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 calendar year 2018.

'"The mobile phone semiconductor market was able to grow again in 2018 despite fewer unit shipments of devices thanks to a continued increase in RF complexity," said Phil Solis, research director, Connectivity and Smartphone Semiconductors. "The increased revenue that came from supporting more bands, a greater number of carriers aggregated, and higher-order MIMO configurations was supported by an increase in smartphone ASPs. This trend will continue in 2019 with the addition of mid-band spectrum for sub-6GHz 5G and mmWave modules in some 5G phones."
