Samsung Lengthens Chip Sales Lead Over Intel

LAS VEGAS , May. 16, 2018 – 

Samsung Electronics lengthened its lead in semiconductor sales over second-ranked Intel in the first quarter, thanks to a continued boom in the memory market, according to market research firm IC Insights.

With $18.6 billion in chip sales in the first quarter, Samsung outsold Intel by 23 percent, IC Insights said. By comparison, in the first quarter of 2017, Intel still No. 1 in chip sales, 5 percent better than Samsung. 

That the pendulum has swung so far in Samsung's favor demonstrates how impactful the current memory chip boom has been on the entire semiconductor industry. When Samsung topped Intel last year in semiconductor sales based on a tight market for both DRAM and NAND flash memory, it marked the first time since 1993 that Intel did not lead in the semiconductor industry in sales over the course of a full year.
