The tablet AP market grew 33 percent to $761 million in Q1. Apple, Intel, Qualcomm, MediaTek and Samsung LSI captured the top-five tablet applications processor (AP) revenue share slots.

“Apple’s tablet AP revenue grew 60 percent year-on-year in Q1 2021, driven by new 5 nm-based A14 Bionic and Apple Silicon M1. The pandemic-driven demand also helped,” said Sravan Kundojjala, Associate Director of Handset Component Technologies service at Strategy Analytics.

MediaTek maintained its lead in non-iPad tablets in unit terms, thanks to its design-wins at Amazon, Lenovo, Samsung, Asus and others.

“MediaTek’s tablet AP shipments grew 92 percent year-on-year in Q1 2021, driven by its cellular and non-cellular tablet APs. However, we believe that MediaTek lags in terms of average selling prices (ASP). As a result, the company posted lower revenue share compared to its unit share,” Kundojjala added.
