Digitimes Research: China smartphone application processor shipments to grow 13.6% sequentially in 2Q14
Eric Lin, DIGITIMES Research, Taipei [Thursday 8 May 2014]

Shipments of smartphone application processors in the China market are expected to grow 13.6% sequentially and 10.9% on year in the second quarter of 2014, according to Digitimes Research.

The mobile communication industry in China has entered into a period with steady growth, with shipments now to be more regulated by seasonality. Individual chipset suppliers thus will see their shipments gain momentum along with a take-off of the LTE chip market, Digitimes Research believes.

MediaTek is expected to see its AP shipments climb 10.9% sequentially in the second quarter, led by rising shipments of its 8-core MT6592 processors as well as dual-core CPUs, Digitimes Research estimates in its latest quarterly data report on China's smartphone AP market.

Shipments of single-, dual- and quad-core solutions by Spreadtrum Communications will gain momentum in the second quarter. Additionally, the IC design house will begin to ship 3-mode LTE SoCs in the quarter.

Qualcomm will continue to push sales of its Qualcomm reference design (QRD) solutions as well as its LTE chips and 64-bit family products with its shipments likely to expand 22% sequentially in the second quarter.

HiSiliconTechnologies and Nvidia will be able to maintain their shipment momentum in the second quarter thanks to continual orders from their respective clients, according to the Digitimes Research report.
