Semiconductor sales leaders by year

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This article lists the top 10~25 largest semiconductor companies by sales leaders since 1987.

Gartner Dataquest Corp. has the longest history as the reference publisher of this ranking. Other sources of semiconductor sales market share information have also become available by iSuppli Corporation starting from year 2000. Only corporate semiconductor revenues are taken into account and businesses activities outside this sphere are excluded, for example IBM non-semiconductor business lines are excluded.

In the majority of cases, rankings are based on the analysis of the financial reports of the chip makers, although definitional issues regarding chip types, multichip modules, foundry manufacturing and chip license revenues create differences in reported numbers. The ranking for a given year is published in March of the following year when all the financial reports of the companies are closed.

What is interesting about these revenue numbers is that they are nominal (without factoring in inflation). Many companies' revenues in 2009 after inflation (~ 3%/year), would actually be lower than in 2000. This is an important point that may not bode well for employment in this sector (i.e., real revenue per employee is lower in 2009 compared to 2000).

Notes :

  • (1) : In December 2005, AMD divested itself of its Flash Memory business, choosing solely to focus on its microprocessor and logic businesses. This change led to predictions that AMD's market share and spot in these rankings would drop precipitously. However, in June 2006 AMD announced its intent to purchase ATI Technologies. The buyout of ATI Technologies closed in October 2006, and the additional revenues from the purchase of ATI make up the majority of AMD's revenue and market share gains (in the terms of this list)
  • (2) : In 2006, the semiconductor operations of the parent company, Philips were sold to a consortium of private equity firms through an LBO to form a new separate legal entity named NXP Semiconductors.
  • (3) : In 2006, Freescale (formerly known as Motorola semiconductors) agreed to be acquired by a consortium of private equity firms through an LBO —said to be the largest leveraged buyout of a technology company in history—.
  • (4) : In 2006, the memory activities (essentially DRAM) of the parent company, Infineon were spun off to form a new separate legal entity named Qimonda. The comparison between year 2006 and 2005 takes into account this split. Qimonda becomes the world's fourth largest DRAM manufacturer.
  • (5) : In 2006, Spansion joint-venture from AMD 37% and Fujitsu 63%.

Notes :

  • (1) : In 2005, the two companies AMD and Fujitsu sold their stake in their joint-venture company Spansion previously controlled by AMD. With combined revenues of $5.97 billion in 2005, AMD/Spansion would have jumped to number eight in the rankings if AMD had not spun off its Spansion flash-memory division. Following the split, AMD was ranked at 15th and Spansion at 24th in 2005.
  • (2) : The foundry activities of IBM are excluded from this revenue.

Notes :

  • (1) : In 2002, the semiconductor operations of the two Japanese parent companies, Mitsubishi and Hitachi were spun off and merged to form a new separate legal entity named Renesas.
  • (2) : In 2003, the semiconductor operations of the parent company, Motorola were spun off to form a new separate legal entity named Freescale.
  • (3) : The foundry activities of IBM are excluded from this revenue.
  • (4) : In 2003, AMD and Fujitsu created a joint-venture company named Spansion, which gathers their activities in flash memories. Because AMD owns 60% of the company, its revenue is assigned to AMD in the ranking.
