The latest data from authoritative research agency Gartner shows that in 2019 Apple Inc. has regained the title of the world’s largest buyer of semiconductor chips. Data show that Apple’s semiconductor spending last year was $36.13 billion. Thus, it surpasses Samsung and becomes the world’s largest semiconductor buyer again. Samsung Electronics ranked second with semiconductor spending of $33.405 billion.
Gartner said in the report that due to the decline in memory chip prices, the world’s leading original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) reduced semiconductor spending in 2019. Among them, Apple regained the throne from Samsung, thanks to its success in wearable products, namely Apple Watch and AirPods.
GSMA, the organizers of MWC, released a statement earlier this week reassuring that MWC will go as planned, while also confirming that the event will have an attendance of 2,800 exhibitors.
