Infineon passes Renesas for second position

NXP was the leading vendor of semiconductors to the OE automotive sector in 2015, according to the latest analysis by Semicast Research.
Infineon Technologies passed Renesas Electronics to become the second largest vendor, with STMicroelectronics and Texas Instruments completing the top five. Semicast estimates that revenues for OE automotive semiconductors totaled USD 28.2 billion in 2015.

Supplier consolidation and currency movements are the key factors influencing changes in the vendor share ranking in 2015. NXP completed the acquisition of Freescale Semiconductor in early December 2015, propelling the combined company to the top of the share ranking. Similarly, Infineon’s acquisition of International Rectifier in January 2015 moves it ahead of Renesas to number two.

2015 OE Automotive Semiconductor Vendor Share Ranking
  1. NXP Semiconductors - 14.5% (2014: 13.6%)
  2. Infineon Technologies - 10.1% (10.0%)
  3. Renesas Electronics - 9.5% (10.4%)
  4. STMicroelectronics - 7.5% (7.4%)
  5. Texas Instruments - 6.5% (5.5%)
  6. Robert Bosch - 5.1% (6.0%)
  7. ON Semiconductor 4.1% (3.4%)
  8. Toshiba - 2.6% (2.9%)
  9. Micron Technology - 2.5% (2.4%)
  10. Osram - 2.4% (2.4%)

  • Top 10 Total - 64.8% (64.0%)
  • Others - 35.2% (36.0%)
  • 2015 Market Size: USD 28.2 billion

Colin Barnden, Principal Analyst at Semicast Research, commented “The combination of NXP and Freescale creates a formidable force, not just in automotive semiconductors but in other areas such as industrial, medical and microcontrollers. It will now almost certainly require the merger of two other leading suppliers to move NXP from the head of the automotive vendor share rankings.”
