ADI edges closer to TI atop analog IC supplier ranking

Market news |
By Peter Clarke

Texas Instruments continued as the top vendor of analog ICs in 2021, but Analog Devices gained market share and moved closer in second place, according to IC Insights.

Texas Instruments remains the market leader with the same market share of 19 percent but ADI moved up to 12.7 percent following its acquisition of Maxim Integrated Products in August 2021.

For the second year running Skyworks Solutions posted the strongest annual sales increase with a jump of 49 percent. NXP’s analog sales jumped by the second highest amount, 40 percent.

Six of the top 10 analog companies are based in the U.S., three are headquartered in Europe, and one is based in Japan.  

The top ten vendors accounted for $50.4 billion of analog IC sales in 2021, or 68.2 percent of the analog market worth $73.9 billion.

TI’s analog sales of $14.1 billion increased nearly $3.2 billion or 29 percent compared to 2020, TI’s 2021 analog revenue accounted for 86 percent of its $16.3 billion in IC sales and 81 percent of its $17.3 billion in semiconductor revenue.

ADI’s 2021 analog sales by end-use application were 50 percent industrial, 21 percent automotive, 15 percent communication and 14 percent consumer.

Ranked third in 2021 with analog sales of $5.9 billion was Skyworks Solutions, focused on front-end modules and power amplifiers for handsets and smartphones, highly integrated SiP and SoC devices for wireless infrastructure, power management chips, precision analog components, WiFi connectivity modules and ICs, and smart energy ICs for ZigBee and Bluetooth applications. Skyworks’ largest customer in 2021 was Apple, which accounted for 59 percent of its sales.

Europe’s three major IC suppliers – Infineon, ST, and NXP – collectively accounted for 16 percent of global marketshare. Infineon continues to grow its presence in automotive, which accounted for 44 percent of its 2021 sales compared to 41 percent in 2020. Power/sensor systems (29 percent), industrial power control (14 percent) and connected security (13 percent) round out its other major end-use applications.

IC Insights’ ranking includes sales of general-purpose analog components, mixed-signal analog, and application-specific analog devices that have at least 50 percent analog circuitry on board.
