We all know the big players in the computer and tech industries, like Apple, Microsoft, Samsung, and Google, to name a few. But did you know that there are also some big names in the world of chipsets? 

1) 7th place: ARM Holdings

ARM Holdings is a British multinational semiconductor and software design company owned by SoftBank Group. They are most known for their development of the ARM architecture, which is used in many chips found in devices today. While they don’t manufacture chips themselves, their designs are used by some of the top companies on this list.

2) 6th place: Intel

You may not know this, but Intel is actually the world’s largest chipmaker. The company has been in business for over 50 years and is responsible for some of the most important innovations in the tech industry. Today, Intel chips can be found on PCs, servers, and smartphones. In recent years, they’ve managed to diversify their portfolio by acquiring companies like Altera and Mobileye that sell chips that specialize in specific tasks. For example, while they’re still primarily focused on CPUs (Central Processing Units), they now also make GPU (Graphics Processing Units) and FPGA (Field-Programmable Gate Arrays).

3) 5th place: Samsung Electronics

Samsung Electronics is a South Korean multinational electronics company headquartered in Suwon, South Korea. The company produces semiconductors, mobile phones, tablets, TVs, digital cameras, camcorders, printers, home appliances, and medical equipment. Samsung is the world’s second-largest information technology company by revenue.

4) 4th place: Fujitsu; 3rd place: Toshiba; 2nd place (tie): Texas Instruments and SK Hynix; 1st place (tie): Micron Technology and TSMC

These chipmakers will undoubtedly continue to make money off their products for years to come, despite the global supply crunch that weighed heavily on the industry. Intel and Qualcomm may not be listed here, but they still have a monopoly on processors. The other companies with this distinction are Samsung Electronics (not listed) and Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC). Both of those firms did not rank as high as the others on this list due to their smaller market share or lack of innovation, but they can still generate considerable revenue through mobile processors like those found in smartphones or tablets.
