HiSilicon has become the first semiconductor supplier in mainland China to enter the top 10 in global sales, according to the latest report released by IC Insights.

HiSilicon posted first quarter sales of $2.67 biilion, an increase of 54% year-on-year. EETimes called it China’s ‘first legit global IC player’ in this article but notes that HiSilicon’s rise in global chip vendors “is tied to captive consumption by Huawei — analysts reckon 90 percent of HiSilicon’s sales go to its parent”.

The IC Insights report pointed out that in the first quarter, HiSilicon and NVIDIA entered the top ten ranking, while Infineon and Toshiba lost their positions in the top ten ranking. The TOP10 companies are Intel, Samsung, TSMC, SK Hynix, Micron, Broadcom, Qualcomm, Texas Instruments, NVIDIA and Hisilicon.

According to the report, the top ten semiconductor companies’ sales in the first quarter of 2020 increased by 16% year-on-year, which is more than double the global semiconductor industry’s total sales in the first quarter of 2020. In addition, nine of the top ten companies achieved sales of at least $ 3 billion in the first quarter. The largest increase is TSMC, its revenue in the first quarter increased by 45% year-on-year, this growth comes from Apple and Hisilicon smartphone orders for 7nm chips.
