Reading time ( words)

The global cellular baseband processor market grew an impressive 14.1 percent year-over-year to reach $22.1 billion in calendar year 2014, according to Strategy Analytics Handset Component Technologies (HCT) service report, “Baseband Market Share Tracker 2014: Qualcomm, MediaTek and Spreadtrum Capture 80 Percent Volume Share.”

Based on this research from Strategy Analytics, Qualcomm, MediaTek, Spreadtrum, Marvell and Intel grabbed the top-five baseband revenue share spots in calendar year 2014. Qualcomm finished the year 2014 with 66 percent revenue share, followed by MediaTek with 17 percent revenue share and Spreadtrum with 5 percent revenue share.

According to Sravan Kundojjala, Associate Director, "For the first time on an annual basis, revenue from LTE baseband sales overtook revenue from 3G baseband sales, thanks to a strong push from the industry. Qualcomm continued to lead this high-growth LTE baseband segment. However, Qualcomm’s LTE baseband competitors HiSilicon, Intel, Marvell, MediaTek and Samsung made good progress in 2014 and increased their LTE baseband shipments."

According to Stuart Robinson, Executive Director of the Strategy Analytics Handset Component Technologies service, "Despite taking a hit from reduced TD-SCDMA baseband shipments, Spreadtrum registered a ten-fold growth in its W-CDMA baseband shipments and achieved a double-digit share in the global W-CDMA baseband market in 2014. Spreadtrum is well-positioned to increase its W-CDMA and LTE baseband shipments significantly in 2015."

According to Christopher Taylor, Director of the Strategy Analytics RF and Wireless Component service, "MediaTek ranked number two in the global LTE baseband market for the first time on an annual basis in 2014. Strategy Analytics predicts MediaTek will continue to gain share in LTE basebands, thanks to increased traction in China. Growing revenue contribution from LTE basebands will lift MediaTek’s baseband revenue share over the next few quarters."
