SEOUL, KOREA - Samsung Electronics has narrowed the gap with Intel Corp., the leader in the world's semiconductor market. It was largely because Samsung could increase its sales in mobile DRAMs and NAND flash memory chips while Intel failed to capitalize on the smartphone market explosion and suffered a setback as the personal computer demand declined.
According to market research firm IHS iSuppli, Samsung was ranked No. 2 by posting a sales revenue of US$33.8 billion last year, up 8.2 percent from the previous year in memory and system chips. Its global market share of 10.6 percent was slightly higher than 10.3 percent in 2012.
Intel, meanwhile, logged in a sales revenue of $47.0 billion, down 0.9 percent from 2012. Its market share has also declined to 14.8 percent from 15.6 percent. The market share difference with Samsung was 4.2 percentage points from 5.3 in 2012.
Qualcomm of the United States took the third position with $17.2 billion in sales (market share of 5.4%), followed by Micron Technology with $14.1 billion (4.4%). SK Hynix was ranked fifth with a sales revenue of $12.8 billion (4.0%), up 42.8 percent from the previous year's $9.0 billion (3.0%).
