The world’s ton ten semiconductor companies have seen their sales rise 17% in the first half of 2020 compared to a year ago, according to IC Insights.

Their combined sales in the first half of the year was US$147.093 billion, the research firm said. All saw growth in the time period except Broadcom and Texas Instruments.

Intel took the top spot with sales of US$38.951 billion, an increase of 22% from a year prior. Samsung Electronics took second place with US$29.75 billion, a rise of 12%.

Third place TSMC saw sales increase by 40% to US$20.717 billion in the time period.

SK Hynix took fourth place with sales of US$13.099 billion, a rise of 13% from a year prior.

This was followed by Micron’s US$10.6 billion, Broadcom’s US$8.1 billion, Qualcomm’s US$7.8 billion, Nvidia’s US$6.5 billion and Texas Instruments’s US$6.2 billion.

Nvidia saw its first half sales increase 40% year over year from high-end GPU sales for artificial intelligence applications.

Huawei-owned HiSilicon made the top ten for the first time with US$5.2 billion. It was a rise of 49% from the US$3.5 billion in 2019, the highest growth among the top ten firms. However, IC Insights noted that the Chinese firm may fall off the list again due to US sanctions against the company. It will cut ties with its main contract chip maker TSMC, which no longer do business with HiSilicon by September 15.

Huawei has previously stated that it won’t be able to use application processor made by HiSilicon going forward.
