MediaTek remains chip leader, but Qualcomm recovers: the numbers of Q4 2021

Continues to be the world’s number one smartphone chip maker, MediaTek, but during the last quarter of 2021, the fourth, the Taiwanese chipmaker suffered not a little. To sharpen the concerns of MediaTek there is the growth of Qualcomm which in the space of a year has increased its share by 7%, and continues to make the big voice regarding 5G products, where it leaves the crumbs both to MediaTek and to Samsung and company.

About the future perspectivesParv Sharma, Counterpoint’s senior analyst put it this way:

Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen1 chip will start shipping in the first quarter of 2022, when the market will still be affected by the success of the Galaxy S22 series and the Chinese New Year. Overall, we expect the next growth inflection to come in the second half of 2022, when major manufacturers have launched and will launch several 5G smartphones.
