6. Texas Instruments
Texas Instruments took 3.4 percent of the worldwide semiconductor market share in 2015, with revenue in 2015 of $11.5 billion -- barely any change from the previous year.
Like other semiconductor companies, including Intel, the Dallas-based company has invested heavily into the Internet of Things, offering an array of cloud solutions, ultra low-power microcontrollers, Sitara processors with scalable processing abilities, and wireless connectivity products such as Bluetooth Smart solutions.
Texas Instruments has also been tightening its focus on key applications such as automotive, industrial and enterprise systems.
