Intel top chip company

Posted on 16 March 2009 by Andreas Vamvatsikos

Intel is still first when it comes to silicon sales.  The biggest microprocessor maker on the planet kept  its spot at the top with a 13.1 % share of the global chip sales market. Intel’s closest rival Samsung is in second place with a 6.5 % share. Qualcomm was the best performer raising its revenue by 15.3 % as a result of a number of successful deals in the mobile phone market.

Since the global chip sales pie decreased by 5.2% last year, somebody had to lose as well as was the case with AMD which fell to the 11th place of the chart with a revenue decrease of 7.8% .

With the global chip market shrinking by 5.2 per cent last year, there were always going to be some losers, most notably AMD which slipped out of the top ten (albeit into 11th place) with revenue dropping 7.8 per cent.
