Multi-Core Processors to Penetrate 45 Percent of Smartphones by 2015

Samsung is set to lead the way

Boston, MA - January 19, 2010 – Over the next few years multi-core processors are expected to play an important role in enabling high-performance mobile computing at low-power consumption, according to, “Multi-core Processor Penetration in Smartphones Will Hit 15 Percent in 2011,” from Strategy Analytics’ Handset Component Technologies service. Samsung, NVIDIA, Qualcomm, ST-Ericsson, Texas Instruments, Marvell, Renesas and Broadcom are well-positioned to capture market share in the smartphone multi-core applications processor market.

According to this Strategy Analytics report, multi-core processors are becoming a key differentiating factor for handset manufacturers and silicon vendors from both a marketing and technical perspective. Additionally, the multi-core applications processor market will be dominated by stand-alone applications processor vendors in the near-term. Qualcomm and ST-Ericsson will be the only vendors in 2011 offering multi-core applications processors with integrated basebands.

“Strategy Analytics estimates that multi-core processor penetration in smartphones will rise from 15 percent in 2011 to 45 percent in 2015. ARM’s Cortex-A9, Cortex-A5 and Cortex-A15 and Intel’s x86 architectures will contribute to the proliferation of multi-core processors in smartphones,” noted Stuart Robinson, Director of the Strategy Analytics Handset Component Technologies service. He added, “We estimate Samsung will lead the smartphone multi-core applications processor market in 2011, followed by Qualcomm, NVIDIA, ST-Ericsson and Texas Instruments.”

“Strategy Analytics analysts believe that multi-core processors will re-ignite the battle between the stand-alone and baseband-integrated applications processor vendors in 2011,” commented, Sravan Kundojjala, Senior Analyst. “The baseband-integrated multi-core applications processors will account for about one-third of total smartphone multi-core applications processor shipments in 2011, with potential for higher share in the future. By contrast, the market for single-core apps processors is now dominated by baseband-integrated products.”
