BOSTON, USA: The global tablet applications processor (AP) market registered a solid 23 percent year-on-year growth to reach $945 million in Q2 2014, according to Strategy Analytics Handset Component Technologies (HCT) service report, "Tablet Apps Processor Market Share Q2 2014: Intel Grabs Number Two Spot."
According to this Strategy Analytics report, Apple, Intel, Qualcomm, MediaTek and Samsung captured the top-five tablet AP revenue share spots in Q2 2014. Apple maintained its tablet AP revenue share lead with 26 percent revenue share, followed by Intel with 19 percent revenue share and Qualcomm with 17 percent revenue share.
According to Sravan Kundojjala, senior analyst: "The non-Apple tablet AP market leadership position continues to change hands and during Q2 2014 it was Intel's turn. Strategy Analytics notes that previously six companies held the non-iPad tablet AP leadership position, which continues to be a challenging one to sustain. Strategy Analytics believes that Intel is on a good trajectory to achieve its 40 million tablet AP shipment goal in 2014."
Stuart Robinson, director of the Strategy Analytics Handset Component Technologies service, adds: "During Q2 2014, HiSilicon, Marvell, MediaTek, NVIDIA and Qualcomm all registered significant shipment growth in the tablet AP market. Strategy Analytics believes that NVIDIA is well-positioned to grab high-profile tablet design-wins with its 64-bit Tegra K1 chip in the second half of 2014."
