"4G Cat 1 is becoming popular in the POS, industrial and smart meter segments due to its high performance and low power consumption architecture. We forecast that smart meters, industrial and router/CPE will grow the maximum in the future", he added.

Qualcomm had a share of about 38 percent in the global cellular chip market, which was followed by UNISOC at 26.1 percent, ASR at 10.4 percent, MediaTek at 6.5 percent, and Intel at 2.8 percent, and others. Samsung's newly launched 5G chipset also provided quite a competition to the veterans, but it faced strong competition from Qualcomm and MediaTek.


We hope that all the companies solve the chipset supply shortage soon to provide supplies to all types of electronic devices soon.
