Intel Takes a Bigger Share of Global Tablet Market

Intel Takes a Bigger Share of Global Tablet MarketAccording to a new Strategy Analytics report, the global tablet applications processor (AP) market registered a solid 23 percent year-on-year growth to reach $945 million in Q2 2014.

Apple, Intel, Qualcomm, MediaTek and Samsung captured the top-five tablet AP revenue share spots in Q2 2014.

Although Apple maintained its tablet AP revenue share lead with 26 percent revenue share, Intel proved impressive with 19 percent revenue share.

“The non-Apple tablet AP market leadership position continues to change hands and during Q2 2014 it was Intel’s turn,” says Sravan Kundojjala, a senior analyst with the firm.

“Strategy Analytics notes that previously six companies held the non-iPad tablet AP leadership position, which continues to be a challenging one to sustain,” Kundojjala adds. “Strategy Analytics believes that Intel is on a good trajectory to achieve its 40 million tablet AP shipment goal in 2014.”
