Top 10 Semiconductor Consumers
Samsung and Apple remain the top semiconductor customers throughout 2014. The tech giants used 57.9 billion components between them and took almost 20% of the market share, as this info from Gartner shows. These two companies really are the big hitters when it comes to new technology so it is no real surprise that they are the top consumers of semiconductors.
