Nvidia Climbs Top 10 List of Chip Sellers


Nvidia reached the list of top 10 semiconductor vendors by sales for the first time in 2017, joining fabless chip supplier Qualcomm, according to market research firm IHS Markit.

Nividia's 2017 sales total of $8.57 billion was good enough for the company to secure the 10th position among chip vendors last year, IHS said. Nvidia edged out fellow fabless chip supplier MediaTek of Taiwan to crack the top 10, according to Len Jelinek, director and chief analyst for technology, media and telecommunications at IHS.

Qualcomm, Nvidia and MediaTek are the only strictly fabless chip vendors to ever crack the top 10 list of chip suppliers in a calendar year. MediaTek was among the top 10 chip vendors in 2014 and again in 2016. Qualcomm first cracked the top 10 list in 2007 and has remained a fixture on the list ever since.

Overall, global semiconductor sales rose 21.7 percent in 2017 to reach a record $429.1 billion. It was the highest year-over-year growth for the industry in 14 years.

Most of the industry's sales gains were driven by a blockbuster year for memory chip sales, which increased by 60.8 percent from 2016. The rest of the semiconductor industry grew by 9.9 percent last year, due largely to what IHS called solid unit-sales growth and strong demand across all applications, regions and technologies.

Craig Stice, senior director for memory and storage at IHS, said that NAND prices - which increased throughout 2017 - are expected to decline this year.
