Huawei HiSilicon is the first to rank among the top 10 semiconductor suppliers in the first quarter of 2020, says semiconductor industry tracker ICinsights.
HiSilicon is the semiconductor design division of the Chinese tech giant Huawei and over 90% of chip supplies of Huawei comes from HiSilicon.
According to the data compiled by the researcher, HiSilicon made a leap of five spots in the ranking to 10th place, making it the first China-based semiconductor supplier to be ranked in the worldwide top-10 listing.
HiSilicon’s year-over-year sales surged 54% in 1Q20. Nvidia also posted a solid year-over-year sales increase of 37% in 1Q20.
“HiSilicon has become an increasingly important customer for TSMC and represented 14% of its sales last year, up from holding only a 5% share in 2017. It is interesting to note that HiSilicon and Apple combined to represent 37% of TSMC’s total sales in 2019.” it noted.
Meanwhile, the top-10 semiconductor companies’ sales surged by 16% in 1Q20 compared to 1Q19, more than twice the total worldwide semiconductor industry 1Q20/1Q19 increase of 7%.
Nine of the top-10 companies had sales of at least $3.0 billion in 1Q20, one company more than in 1Q19. As shown, it took almost $2.7 billion in quarterly sales just to make it into the 1Q20 top-10 semiconductor supplier list.
Huawei and Partners explore digital technologies for innovative education system
Huawei has recently conducted the TECH4ALL Innovative Education Global Online summit. The conduction of this program mainly aims at the exploration of digital technologies that can serve as benefits and can help in the transformation of the education system into a more innovative and inclusive manner.
According to UNESCO, Technology can play a vital role in transforming and giving a new life to the education system. However, the fact lies in the point that the utilization of the tech parts must be in such a way that it can provide public digital learning content, and platforms and can change the old teaching methodologies.
Three ways to transform the Education system
The CMO of Huawei ICT infrastructure -Kevin Zhang describes how technology will give routes for three creations that can contribute well to the education system. She said the following words regarding the three key factors:
“Technology truly has the power to transform education for everyone. We are doing this in three ways: connecting schools, promoting digital skills, and supporting STEAM curriculum.”
So far, Huawei has put forth several efforts for an innovative education system. The company has developed and supported numerous Technology-enabled Open Schools for All (TeOSS). This is a three-year project that is approached as a benefit for the students as well as teachers in the African nations.
Thereafter, Huawei learned that connecting schools, boosting digital literacy, and providing educational institutes with digital devices could work as a key priority in bringing the transformation. As a result, the Chinese tech giant started initiating this phase.
Consequently, the company made the successful completion of the DigiSchool project in Kenya. Huawei has connected more than 13 schools at a time, benefitting 6000 students. On the other hand, the company assured that no child should leave behind in this project.
Expanding its roots to more regions, Huawei further brought the DigiTruck project to France. Ultimately, this initiative helped in addressing the literacy issue. Aside, it provided free training in digital skills, targeted unemployed people, and continued theme skills development.
To bring a good education system in the time ahead, Huawei and other partners are constantly making efforts. Moreover, they are exploring new technologies that can help in this matter in a positive way.
Huawei Hyperfusion business revenue exceeds 1.1 billion USD in H1 2022
The Hyperfusion business of Huawei is back on trend and has scored a good amount in its revenue. As per the latest information, the business server has quickly recovered from its traditional status and has exceeded revenue of 8 billion yuan [1.17 billion USD] in the first half of the year 2022.
You might be wondering where this new term ‘Hyperfusion’ has appeared. Well, Hyperfusion business server is the subsidiary institute of Huawei. The Chinese manufacturer has completely adopted the cooperation in September 2021.
Thereafter, in November 2021, the firm turned around from Huawei to handle things independently. Alternatively, it integrates and works on several technological concepts. For instance, industrial engineering design services, Internet of things technology research and development, and more.
According to the latest information, the business operators jointly held the first hyperfusion partner conference in Zhengzhou, today. Various companies such as Advanced Digital Communications, Beiming Software, Zhouyou Yunzhi, and Guangzhou Yaoheng have attended this event.
The officials of Huawei Hyperfusion business have organized the event for celebrating the success of the excellent revenue. Appreciating the deeds, the operators said that Hyperfusion has committed to becoming the world’s leading provider of computing services.
Hyperfusion recovered rapidly in the first half of 2022
Consequently, the Chairman and CEO of Hyperfusion – Liu Hongyun has expressed his satisfaction with the recovery of the business. Liu said the business has recovered quite rapidly in the first half of this year. It was capable of making more than 10 billion yuan [1.47 billion USD] orders and revenue of 8 billion yuan [1.17 billion USD].
Together, these efforts brought the company to the third rank in China, in terms of market share. Additionally, it has also gained more than 2000 superfusion employees and 5000 partners.
Liu believes that by relying upon the ecological concept of win-win cooperation, the Hyperfusion business will be able to create a great value creation platform.
Huawei Kirin maker’s market share declines, while Kirin 9000 runs out of stock
Huawei HiSilicon and Kirin 9000 are one of the best processors among different kinds of SoCs. So far, these chipsets provide the best performance and efficient functioning of the device. But seems like, the market value for the respective chipsets isn’t going in the same way as they were before.
That says the report of CINNO Research which showcases the China smartphone SoC shipments in the first half of 2022. Alternatively, the share market for the processors has gone down to 16.9 percent this year, with a sale of 134 million units.
According to this report, the Chinese tech giant has attained a huge decline in the market share of Huawei HiSilicon and Kirin 9000 processors. Going with the status, HiSilicon received a decrement of 81.5 percent on the yearly basis, which is the largest year-on-year decline.
In comparison to the previous year, the shipment of Huawei HiSilicon has fallen from 21.4 million to just 4 million units. On the other hand, the Kirin 9000 chipsets are no longer available for an unlimited period. Although the company hasn’t emitted any word on this subject till now, we are waiting to see the return of the king of Huawei processors.
MediaTek and Qualcomm are still at the top!
In this outcome, MediaTek and Qualcomm again managed to remain in the top two positions. As per the information, MediaTek gained 42.1 percent of its share market profit with 56.6 million shipments. Following the lead, Qualcomm scored about 35.3 percent of success with the shipment of 47.4 million units.
Thereafter comes Apple with a 16.3 percent increase, ranking at the third position. Despite several challenges, Huawei HiSilicon possibly made its place in the top five smartphone SoC vendors ranking. Yet, we cannot forget that among the top five brands, HiSilicon is the one to obtain share decline.
This time, the SoC market has been affected in overall aspects. But, Huawei has to make some powerful strategies to step back in the market with the same superiority and magic in its processor. Since there are already several competitors waiting outside the door.
