BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The global tablet apps processor market grew 26 percent in revenue terms to $556 million in Q2 2020, according to Strategy Analytics’ Handset Component Technologies (HCT) service report.

Strategy Analytics’ research report “Tablet Apps Processor Market Share Tracker Q2 2020: Shipments Climb 15 Percent” estimates that Apple, Intel, Qualcomm, MediaTek and Samsung LSI captured the top-five tablet applications processor (AP) revenue share slots in Q2 2020. Apple led the tablet AP market with 43 percent revenue share in Q2 2020, followed by Intel with 18 percent and Qualcomm with 15 percent.

Sravan Kundojjala, Associate Director, commented, “As Strategy Analytics predicted earlier, the tablet AP market saw strong shipment growth in Q2 2020, driven by COVID-led remote learning and working trends. Apple saw strong shipment growth and registered 29 percent shipment growth in 1H 2020. We forecast continued growth for tablet AP vendors in 2H 2020.
