MediaTek took 12% of the baseband market in 2013, dropping from 12.5% in 2012.

In third place, Intel had an 8% share of the baseband processor market in 2013, down from 12.3% share in 2012.

Intel’s share dropped because people switched from 3G to LTE and Intel was late to LTE.

Intel is expecting a decline in baseband processor revenues this year, despite an expected steep ramp in the market as LTE takes hold.

In the applications processor market, Strategy Analytics reports that Intel had a 0.2% market share in 2013.
