MediaTek’s strong performance in the T100- $ 250 price band and growth in key regions such as China and India helped it become the world’s largest smartphone chip seller, although Qualcomm was the largest 5G chip seller in 2020. In 2019, MediaTek’s market share nearly doubled compared to the other half.

MediaTek Research Director Dale Guy said:

MediaTek’s strong market share gain in Q3 2020 happened due to three reasons – strong performance in the mid-end smartphone price segment ($100-$250) and emerging markets like LATAM and MEA, the US ban on Huawei, and finally wins in leading OEMs like Samsung, Xiaomi, and Honor. The share of MediaTek chipsets in Xiaomi has increased by more than three times since the same period last year. MediaTek was also able to leverage the gap created due to the US ban on Huawei. Affordable MediaTek chips fabricated by TSMC became the first option for many OEMs to quickly fill the gap left by Huawei’s absence. Huawei had also previously purchased a significant amount of chipsets ahead of the ban.
