Qualcomm extends baseband lead
Qualcomm has extended its share of the baseband processor market to 64% on the back of success in LTE, reports Strategy Analytics.
Qualcomm had 64% share of the baseband market up from 52% in 2012.
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.Tags: baseband processor, Intel, Qualcomm
