MediaTek maintains top position in mobile chipset market despite challenges

The chip maker has overcome the semiconductor shortage and launched several new products in 2021 and 2022.

MediaTek has continued to dominate the market in 2021 and 2022, despite facing challenges such as the semiconductor shortage and competition from other vendors.

According to data from analytics company IDC, MediaTek held a market share of 41-42% in 2021 and more than 35% in 2022, surpassing its rivals such as Qualcomm, Samsung, and Apple. The company achieved this feat by managing user demand and supply issues effectively and by offering a wide range of products for different segments and regions.

MediaTek’s flagship product, the Dimensity 9200 series, was launched in November 2022 and received positive feedback from the market. The 5G chip features TSMC’s 4nm process technology and boasts Arm’s Cortex-X2 CPU cores, Mali-G710 GPU, and MediaTek’s AI processing unit. It also supports RGBW sensors, up to 144Hz refresh rate displays, and Wi-Fi 7 connectivity.

The Dimensity 9200 series has helped MediaTek gain more than 20% of the Android flagship market share in China by 2022, compared to zero percent in 2021. Some of the devices that use the Dimensity 9200 series include the vivo X90, vivo X90 Pro, and OPPO Find X6.

MediaTek also launched the Dimensity 9200+, which offers higher performance and graphics. The flagship chipset has increased the CPU core clock frequency by about 10-11% and the graphics by 17%, resulting in a 10% improvement in benchmarks such as Antutu, Geekbench, and graphics tests.

In addition to the flagship segment, MediaTek also offers products for the premium and mid-range segments. Both the Dimensity 8200 and Dimensity 7200 bring some features from the flagship segment to the premium and mid-range segment, such as camera capabilities and Wi-Fi 6E connectivity.

Some of the devices that use MediaTek’s premium and mid-range chipsets include folding phones such as OPPO Find N2 Flip and Tecno Phantom V Fold, which use the Dimensity 9000+ chip, and high-end tablets such as the OnePlus Pad.

MediaTek aims to maintain its top position in the market and continue to provide better solutions for its customers and partners.
