One third of all chips purchased<br>by the top 10 OEM companies

Top 10 OEM companies account for one third of the total global semiconductor purchasing.
According to Gartner average chip spending at the top 10 OEM companies grew to $8.4 billion in 2006 up from $7.7 billion in 2005. The ten largest OEM companies purchased semiconductors for $84 billion which was about one third of the total semiconductor spending in 2006.

Hewlett-Packard remained the top chip consumer in 2006 with approximately $12 billion in semiconductor spending, but Nokia and Dell were close behind at more than $11.5 billion each. “Data processing and telecommunications firms represented 75 percent of the total semiconductor spending by the top consumers", noted Alfonso Velosa chief analyst at Gartner.

"The top 10 OEMs in 2006 were multinational firms that have been implementing supply chain best practices over many years [with] experience in managing a large number of global supply chain partners," Velosa said.

"Although semiconductor consumption will remain concentrated among the top OEMs, the design-in, sales, order and fulfillment channels will continue to evolve", he added.
