Counterpoint: MediaTek leads smartphone SoC shipments in Q3 2021The latest research from Counterpoint shows that the global smartphone chipset shipments have increased by 6% YoY in Q3 2021. 5G smartphone chipset shipments grew almost two-fold for the same period. MediaTek continues to be the market leader with a 40% share in Q3 2021 and a 7% increase YoY. Its position is backed by continued strong demand in 4G SoCs and competitively priced 5G ones. Qualcomm is second with a27% share in shipments and 1% decrease YoY. However, the brand leads in the 5G market with a 62% share. It gained from the 5G baseband modem chipset win in the Apple iPhone 13 series and demand for its complete 5G SoC chipsets, from the flagship 8 series to affordable 4 series. Apple is third with a 15% share - 3% YoY growth. It is followed by Unisoc with a 10% share - more than a double increase compared to the 4% for Q3 2020. The company has succeeded in expanding its customer base, securing a series of design wins with major OEMs like HONOR, realme, Motorola, ZTE and Transsion. Further, it also had a design win in Samsung’s Galaxy A series. Samsung Exynos, logically, decreases to 5% with the share of MediaTek and Qualcomm chipsets growing across Samsung's smartphone portfolio. With Huawei's inability to manufacture HiSilicon chipsets due to the US trade ban, HiSilicon remains last with its inventory being on the verge of exhaustion.
