MediaTek has already surpassed Qualcomm and Hisilicon to become China’s largest SoC supplier

As it became known, MediaTek is currently the largest supplier of mobile SoCs for smartphones in China.

Despite the downturn in the Chinese market, MediaTek has managed to outpace the competition and lead the market. SOC shipments in China totaled 307 million units, down 20.8% from 2019.

MediaTek took first place with a market share of 31.7% in the second half of 2020, while in the first half of the year the company held 17.9% of the market. At the same time, Hisilicon’s market share from 37% in the first half of last year to 27.2% in the second half. Qualcomm’s share fell from 30.8% in the first half to 25.4% in the second half.

Year over year, MediaTek’s market share has nearly doubled compared to the second half of 2019. On the other hand, the shares of Qualcomm and HiSilicon declined over the same period. One of the reasons for the growing popularity of MediaTek chips is the steady demand for smartphones between $ 100 and $ 250.

This week, MediaTek unveiled its flagship Dimensity 1200 single-chip system, which is manufactured in a 6nm process.
