In 2020, MediaTek delivered most of the chipsets suitable for smartphones.
Digitimes significance In 2020, MediaTek will become the world’s largest chip giant, surpassing Qualcomm in the market. Part of the reason is that due to US restrictions, Huawei has placed many orders with MediaTek. Dimensity chips with 5G capabilities were finally welcomed as a whole.
As a result, MediaTek shipped 351.8 million mobile chips last year, up from 238 million in 2019. This increased MediaTek’s market share from 17.2% to 27.2, and now surpassed Qualcomm for the first time.
By the way, MediaTek’s largest customer is Xiaomi, and Xiaomi ordered 63.7 million chips from the company in 2020. Oppo 55.3 million and Samsung 43.3 million. MediaTek expects further growth this year, and as the mobile market in developing regions rotates more and more, this growth may exceed expectations (MediaTek is indeed very successful in this price category).
