According to the latest report of Counterpoint Research Institute, in the period from January to March 2022 (from mid-January 1400 to mid-April 1401), the Taiwanese semiconductor industry company known as TSMC is the top mobile chip manufacturer.

Statistics show that 69.9 percent of mobile application processors (AP) and system-on-chips (SoC) and cellular modems that are in mobile chips Used by TSMC. Samsung Foundry is in second place with a 30% share of the market. The remaining 0.1 percent is available to other companies.

as GSMArena writes, in the first quarter of 2022, the total number of mobile chips produced fell by five percent compared to the first quarter of 2021, but in the same period of time, the revenue from the sale of these chips was 23 percent higher. The interesting thing is that TSMC produced 9% fewer chips in the first quarter of 2022 compared to the first quarter of 2021.

In the field of mobile chip lithography market share, Samsung had the upper hand. Experts consider Samsung’s good performance largely dependent on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor.

Considering the use of Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor from 4nm lithography TSMC We expect the Taiwanese company to have a higher position than Samsung in the remaining quarters of 2022. Qualcomm, Apple and MediaTek are expected to use TSMC’s four-nanometer lithography this year.

  • shock to TSMC; Apparently, Apple, Nvidia and AMD have reduced the volume of chip orders

TSMC is the largest contract manufacturer of chips in the world and important customers such as Apple and Nvidia And it has AMD. The company has used the latest lithography in the chip world in recent years, but Samsung was able to start 3nm chip production before TSMC. Rumors in recent weeks have suggested that Apple, Nvidia, and AMD have reduced orders for TSMC chips. TSMC is rumored to raise chip prices in 2023.
