MediaTek mobile chip floors Qualcomm, Apple and others in China

Earlier today, a market research firm, CINNO Research released the operation of the Chinese smartphone market in May this year. What is more special is that the statistical dimension is divided according to the mobile phone processor or SoC. In terms of total, Chinese shipments of SoC terminals for smartphones in May were about 19.12 million. This is a month-on-month recovery and an increase of 8.6%. However, year on year, this is still a decrease of about 19.7%. In terms of brands, MediaTek shipped 8.4 million SoC chips, ranking first in the industry. The Taiwanese chip maker records an increase of 15% month-on-month and a year-on-year decrease of about 3.3%.


Global chip market will not have changes anytime soon

Qualcomm came in second with 6.5 million shipments, an increase of 4.1% month-on-month and a year-on-year decrease of about 16%. In third to fifth positions are Apple, UNISOC and HiSilicon respectively. It can be seen that the shipment of HiSilicon chip mobile phones in the month was less than 400,000 units, a year-on-year decrease of 81.5%. The company’s ranking also hit rock bottom. Of course, this situation is not a surprise because of the ban on Huawei. The company can no longer produce or upgrade its HiSilicon chips because of its use of American technologies. However, the company is slowly overcoming the ban’s grip and in the coming years, it may resume regular operation.

Of course, it is worth noting that, according to the price range, in the high-end smartphone SoC market of more than 4,000 yuan ($595), accounts for about 71.1%, an increase of about 8% year-on-year. For the entry-level smartphone SoC within 2,000 yuan ($297), MediaTek account for about 70.9% in May. Looking forward to the second half of the year, the agency believes that the market is in a stage of adjustment. Furthermore, it believes that there will be no fundamental or significant recovery. To this end, there will not be any significant changes in the smartphone market.
