MediaTek, driven by increased traction with leading Android tablet OEMs, captured 46 percent of the Android tablet applications processors market (AP) during AQ3 2021, a new report claimed.
According to Strategy Analytics, the global tablet AP market declined 14 percent in unit terms but grew 8 percent in revenue terms in Q3 2021.
Apple, Intel, MediaTek, Qualcomm, and Samsung LSI captured the top-five tablet AP revenue share rankings in Q3 2021.
After the revival in 2020 and early part of 2021, the tablet AP shipments declined year-on-year for the second straight quarter in Q3 2021. However, shipments fared better and grew 11 percent compared to the pre-pandemic period (Q3 2019), – Sravan Kundojjala, Director of Handset Component Technologies service at Strategy Analytics said in a statement.
Apple maintained its tablet AP market share leadership with a 60 percent revenue share, followed by Intel with 13 percent and MediaTek with 10 percent.
Cellular-integrated APs (3G/4G/5G) accounted for one-third of tablet AP shipments. Tablet AP ASPs grew 25 percent year-on-year, driven by an increased mix of premium APs and supply constraints.
“Except for MediaTek, all other tablet AP vendors saw their AP shipments decline year-on-year in Q3 2021,” Kundojjala added.
