US based fables IC suppliers bagged 8 of the top 10 places and 12 of the top 25 positions in the fabless IC supplier ranking for 2011
USA: According to a survey on the top 103 fabless suppliers in 2011, done by IC Insights' March Update (a part of the subscription to The McClean Report), US based suppliers bagged 8 of the top 10 places and 12 of the top 25 positions in the fabless IC supplier ranking for 2011.
80 per cent of the $64.9 billion in fabless IC sales last year had come only from the top 25 fabless IC suppliers, i.e. up 4 per cent from 2010. Worldwide fabless company IC sales increased 4 per cent as compared to total IC market growth of 1 per cent.
Surely fables IC suppliers are back on track despite the fact that total fabless IC company sales growth did not outperform total IC market growth.
Qualcomm, Broadcom, AMD, Nvidia, Marvell are the top five fabless IC suppliers. Qualcomm has maintained its position in the market since 2009, whereas Broadcom and AMD have maintained their positions since 2010.
The top 25 fabless IC companies had registered a double digit growth in 2011. The combined sales registered in 2011 was 20.1 billion, up 29 per cent from their combined sales of $15.6 billion in 2010.
