The adage about “misfortune helped” is becoming a companion of many phenomena taking place in the life of Huawei Technologies in recent months. The IC Insights report shows that HiSilicon’s processor revenues grew 49% in the past half year over the same period last year. This allowed the company to enter the top ten world leaders.
It makes no sense to explain that the received tenth position in the ranking of the largest suppliers of semiconductor products for HiSilicon will become a “farewell title”, as recently representatives of the parent company Huawei announced that the processors of this brand have been delivered to the market for the last year. From September 15, TSMC will stop shipping them, and Huawei’s prospects for cooperation with other contractors are equally hazy.
HiSilicon managed to gain $ 5.22 billion from the sale of its processors in the first half of the year, which is 49% more than in the same period last year. Obviously, it was necessary to “push” in order to form a stock of processors for Huawei for the coming months of its existence under the conditions of US sanctions. In the first half of last year, HiSilicon occupied only the sixteenth position in the ranking.
Among those companies that have increased their revenues by 40% or more, you can find both NVIDIA and TSMC, which manufactures products for many of the factoryless developers on the list. If TSMC is excluded from this rating, then Infineon will return to the tenth position of the list. In total, the top ten industry leaders increased their revenue by 17% in the first half of the year, well above the 5% growth in the entire semiconductor industry.
