Experts from the analytical company Gartner has conducted a study and concluded that the American company Apple has outpaced Samsung in the number of semiconductors purchased last year. Over the past three years, the manufacturer from South Korea has been Number 1 on this indicator.
Apple’s global market share is 8.6%; Samsung’s share is 8%. The Chinese giant Huawei ranks third. The trade war with the USA has not become a bit of a problem for the company, which still occupies 5% of the global market.
The market size has decreased by almost 12% and is estimated at $ 418 billion.
The top five companies have remained unchanged, but each of the top manufacturers has cut expenditure on purchasing chips. The reason was the fall in their value.
Foxconn Technology is among the top 10 companies in the segment. It has outpaced Kingston.
In 2019, the top ten companies collected 39.5% of total expenses. In 2018, this indicator was equal to 40%.
