4 months back i had blogged about How Mediatek (MTK) would disrupt tablet markets in SouthEast Asian Markets. According to the latest tablet CPU share report from Strategy Analytics, MediaTek is on a roll in the tablet space, now practically tied with Samsung as the second biggest supplier of tablet chipsets.
The global tablet processor market registered 46 percent year-on-year growth to reach USD 759 million in the second quarter. Apple still dominates the market with its A5 and A6X processors and it enjoyed a 34% revenue share in the second quarter. Samsung and MediaTek had about 10% each, although Samsung was in a slim lead. Marvell and Qualcomm also made some progress in Q2, while Intel and Nvidia are expected to gain share in the second half of the year.
MediaTek scored significant design-wins with Acer, Asus and Lenovo. MediaTek’s tactics of releasing stand-alone applications processors for the tablet market coupled with its reference design know-how have propelled its share to double-digits in the tablet applications processor market.
During Q2 2013, Marvell and Qualcomm also made good progress, thanks to their high-profile tablet design-wins. Strategy Analytics believes that Intel with its Bay Trail chip and NVIDIA with its Tegra 4 chip are also poised for tablet applications processor market share growth in the second half of 2013.
