[gearbest News] Global semiconductor revenue totaled $418.3 billion in 2019, down 11.9% from 2018, according to the latest Gartner report. Among them, Intel surpassed Samsung Electronics to return to the first place in the market, while Samsung Electronics, which ranked first in revenue in 2018 and 2017, failed to defend its title due to the downturn in the storage market.

Although Intel regained its position as the world's largest semiconductor supplier in 2019, Intel continued to restrict the supply of CPU because of a slowdown in the server market and the sale of its cellular modem business to Apple. Semiconductor revenue still fell 0.7% in 2019. Samsung Electronics' memory business, which accounts for 82 per cent of sales, fell 34 per cent year-on-year in 2019, falling to second place because of oversupply and falling prices in the DRAM and NAND flash markets. In addition, SK Hynix and Micron ranked third and fourth with 5.4 per cent and 4.8 per cent market share, respectively.

"Memory revenue, which accounted for 26.7% of the semiconductor market in 2019, fell by 31.5%," said Andrew Norwood, vice president of research at Gartner. DRAM revenue fell by 37.5% due to an oversupply of memory that began at the end of 2018 and lasted until 2019. The overstocking of DRAM manufacturers in the second half of 2019 pushed pricing lower, resulting in a 47.4 per cent decline in average selling price (ASP) in 2019. "
