Top 30 chip suppliers of 2002, according to iSuppli

2002 is ending and, like a year ago, iSuppli, the marketing company, posted its rating of the world-top 30 semiconductor suppliers. The rating contains not only the chip makers like Infineon, Micron, or Samsung, but also the suppliers, selling chips under their brands, including those without own production like NVIDIA, Qualcomm, etc. As the Q4 is not finished yet, the results are compiled, using the provisional forecasts.

Well, nobody doubted that Intel was to remain on top. Itís interesting that, besides staying on the first place, the company could keep the sales on the level of 2001. Samsung showed the highest sales growth rate in 2002, having occupied the second place from the former fourth. Who could believe that a company can double the sales volumes in a hard year! The third STMicroelectronics remained on the same position, and the following Texas Instruments went one place up.

Itís interesting that DRAM makers with all their complaints about the low market prices have significantly improved their businesses, achieving higher rating places. Micron Technology had time to increase the sales volumes by almost one third in this year.

NVIDIA and Qualcomm continue to achieve high sales volumes growth rate, at that not having any own facilities.

Positions of Toshiba, Agere, LSI Logic, Atmel, and Fujitsu got worse. AMD lost four places at once, its sales volumes might reduce by $1 billion or almost 1/3 this year.
