Intel soar past Samsung – 44% higher sales

According to IC Insights, Intel have extended their lead over nearest rival Samsung by a whopping 44 percent.

The report shows the strength of Intel sales right now, with Samsung literally miles behind. Another chipmaker in the report, Nvidia, recorded sales down by six percent with Panasonic also shows a decline of 9 percent. The report however does not detail ON’s purchase of Sanyo Semiconducter in Q1 2011 which has caused ON’s sales to increase by 58 percent.

The overall semiconductor market looks healthy in 2011, as the top 20 suppliers recorded an increase of 11 percent in Q1 2011 compared to Q1 2010. The growth rate has exceeded expectations, one point higher than the IC Insight’s forecast of 10 percent.

The top 5 memory suppliers all saw growth, apart from Elpida who are DRAM dependant – they recorded a staggering 31 percent drop in revenue. These sales figures can be accredited to the growing flash memory market. Toshiba, Samsung and Micron Technology all had double digit increases on year in Q1.
