Reasons for MediaTek’s Win | Mediatek beats Qualcomm

Research Director Dale Gai from Counterpoint said: “MediaTek’s strong market share gain resulted due to three reasons – (1) dominant performance in the mid-end smartphone price segment ($100-$250), emerging markets like LA (Latin America), the Middle East and Africa, (2) the US ban on Huawei and (3) wins in leading Original Equipment Manufacturers like Samsung, Xiaomi and Honor”.

Ma further said, “Over the past year, there has been a ‘reconstitution’ in the global semiconductor sector, as the US ban on Huawei has changed the industry market law, leading to avoiding reliance on a single company and buyers are not purchasing solely based on product technology or quality.”

According to the analyst, Chinese smartphone manufacturers such as Oppo, Vivo, and Xiaomi, accepting lessons from the experiences of Huawei, are among those who have most strongly felt the urgency of diversifying purchasing sources and will particularly avoid becoming too dependent on a single US company.

According to the Boston Consulting Group report in March, the continuation of the bilateral conflicts could also endanger US companies to do business in China. Could cut roughly $49 billion in revenue that the US semiconductor industry yield from the Chinese market.
