    Last year, when it was announced that MediaTek had achieved for the first time in history as the largest supplier of smartphone chipsets, the Taiwanese company made headlines in technology news circles. The growing trend of MediaTek shows that this success was not accidental. A report released by the Counterpoint Research Institute on Monday, September 6, 2021, states that MediaTek, with a 43% share of global smartphone chips in the second quarter of 2021, is still the top supplier. Has appropriated the piece. After MediaTek, Qualcomm is in second place and Apple is in third place in the world. <b>Counterpoint</b> <b>announces:</b> <b>MediaTek</b> The <b>largest</b> <b>chipset</b> <b>supplier</b> in the <b>second</b> <b>quarter</b> of <b>2021</b> The global supply and market share of the top mobile processor makers in the second quarter of 2021 compared to the second quarter of 2020

    In terms of the base band supply of 5G smartphones, it is Qualcomm that ranks first with a 55% share. The reason for this success is Qualcomm's lead in supplying 5G baseband modem chips to the iPhone 12 Series and the dramatic demand for 5G integrated chipsets (from the flagship Snapdragon 8 Series chips to the cheaper Snapdragon 4 Series chips). Of course, if Qualcomm did not face obstacles such as parts supply and production problems in the first half of 2021, it could have offered more chipsets. <b>Counterpoint</b> <b>announces:</b> <b>MediaTek</b> the <b>largest</b> <b>chipset</b> <b>supplier</b> in the <b>second</b> <b>quarter</b> of 2021

    Before MediaTek snatched the first title from Qualcomm, the American company Qualcomm had been dominating this market for years. Of course, Qualcomm chips are still the first choice of many manufacturers (including Samsung and Xiaomi). Also, in the field of flagship chipsets, it is Qualcomm that takes the lead. According to some experts, if MediaTek also produces an acceptable flagship chipset, it can increase its distance from Qualcomm. It should be noted that MediaTek is best known for producing low-cost yet powerful chips (such as the Dimensity series). One of the most important customer brands of Dimensity chips are OnePlus, Oppo and Vivo.

    Whether Qualcomm can return to the top spot or whether MediaTek can maintain its lead will be determined over time. Interestingly, smartphone brands, following in Apple's footsteps, have tended to do the process of designing the processors themselves. Samsung recently announced the imminent launch of a flagship processor in partnership with AMD. Google has also announced that the Pixel 6 series phones - which will be introduced soon - will be equipped with a dedicated Tensor chip that Google has been working on for years. All of this suggests that Qualcomm and MediaTek may not be able to maintain their monopoly on the chipset market in the future.

    Here's a look at the performance of other chipset makers in the second quarter of 2021: The chip managed to maintain its third position.

    UNISOC: The volume of chipsets supplied by UNISOC more than doubled in the first half of 2021 compared to the first half of 2020, and the Chinese company managed to become the fourth in the world with a 9% share. To stand. This year, UNISOC was able to expand its regular customer base and encourage brands such as Honor, Riley and Motorola to use their chipsets. The good reception of Chinese consumers for phones equipped with UNISOC chips promises the company's growing growth. Samsung: In the midst of reorganizing the strategy of outsourcing and outsourcing the production of smartphones to Chinese design and manufacturing companies, Samsung finished with only 7% of the global market share of mobile chipsets. As a result, MediaTek and Qualcomm's share of Samsung's product portfolio (from mid-range 4G and 5G handsets to flagships) has been growing. High Silicon: US sanctions against Huawei and its subsidiaries have prevented the Chinese company from producing Kirin chipsets at High Silicon. Kirin chips are out of stock, and for this reason, Huawei used the latest Qualcomm chips in the P50 series handsets, although these chips are limited to the 4G network.
