Strategy Analytics: Tablet Apps Processor Revenue Soared 77 Percent in Q3 2012
BOSTON --(Business Wire)--
Global tablet applications processor market showed a robust 77
percent year-on-year growth in Q3 2012 to reach $0.9 billion, according
to the Strategy Analytics (News - Alert) Handset
Component Technologies service report, "Tablet
Apps Processor Market Share Q3 2012: NVIDIA Retains Lead in Non-iPad
Tablets with One-Third Share."
Based on Strategy Analytics estimates, Apple maintained its lad in the
tablet applications processor market with 53 percent revenue share in Q3
2012. NVIDIA (News - Alert), Texas Instruments, Qualcomm and Samsung made up the rest
of the top-five vendors.
According to Sravan Kundojjala, Senior Analyst, "NVIDIA led the non-iPad
tablet market with one-third unit shipment share in Q3 2012 with the
help of its Google (News - Alert) Nexus 7 and Microsoft Surface RT design-wins. During
the quarter, NVIDIA registered its highest quarterly Tegra tablet
processor shipments since the introduction of the Tegra product.
Strategy Analytics believes that NVIDIA is well-positioned to maintain
its share in non-iPad tablets in the next few quarters."
According to Stuart Robinson, Director of the Strategy Analytics Handset
Component Technologies service, "Strategy Analytics estimates that
stand-alone applications processors represented about 99 percent of all
tablet applications processors shipped in Q3 2012. Baseband-integrated
processors have had limited traction so far in tablets and this has
affected shipments of integrated vendors such as Qualcomm, Broadcom and
MediaTek (News - Alert)."
