Infographic: Top 7 Semiconductor Companies by Revenues, Q4 2023


In Q4 2023, Intel claimed the top spot in the global semiconductor market mainly due to the normalizing client computing sector, which saw a 12% QoQ growth. Samsung ranked second with a flattish QoQ revenue largely driven by the memory revenue rebound but capped by the mobile business weakness. NVIDIA’s dominance in AI servers continued to support its semiconductor revenue growth and thus ranking the company #3 in Q4 2023. Broadcom claimed the fourth spot mainly due to a strong demand in AI data centers and AI accelerators from hyperscalers. SK hynix also benefited from memory recovery and reported a sequential revenue growth to rank #5 in the quarter. Qualcomm and AMD also reported sequential revenue growth and ranked #6 and #7.
