MediaTek dominated the smartphone SoC (System-on-a-Chip) market in the second quarter of 2022, recording the highest volume of shipments, with 39% of the total shipments. During the quarter, MediaTek lead the low-mid tier wholesale price segment, driven by its Helio G series and Dimensity 700 series.

However, there was a slight decline in MediaTek’s shipments in the second quarter of 2022 compared to the previous quarter due to order cuts from major Chinese OEMs.

Qualcomm captured a 29% share in the quarter. Qualcomm maintained its position in the premium segment despite tough macroeconomic situations and the declining smartphone market.
