Intel has been among the top chip vendors internationally for quite some time. However, the year 2011 seems to have proven particularly good for the company as it was able to grab 15.6 percent of the market share, which is its highest over a whole decade! This was a result of a surge in demand of Intel’s chips and at the same time, some major acquisitions by the company.


Last time Intel was closest to this number was in 2001 when the company was able to get a 13.9 percent share of the global market. According to a researcher at IHS, ‘The company’s rise was spurred by soaring demand for its PC-oriented microprocessors, and for its NAND flash memory used in consumer and wireless products. Intel’s revenue also was boosted by its acquisition of Infineon’s wireless business unit.’

In fact, the company’s revenues seemed pretty solid at $54 billion during 2011, which is a healthy 20.6 percent jump over its 2010 revenues. With such growth, Intel was third in the list of highest growth companies, beaten only by Qualcomm and ON Semiconductor.

One of the major reasons for the company’s wild success has been that it had stayed well ahead of the chip market when it comes to innovation. It has been persistently offering better, and more novel solutions. And even during this year, Intel is all set to hit the market with a number of new chips which, the company is hoping, will be able to dazzle the electronics manufacturers.

According to IHS’ report, while American companies mostly were able to register a healthy growth, Japanese chip manufacturers suffered a decline in growth. This was chiefly a result of the earthquake which hit Japan during 2011 and wrecked a lot of damage.
