Qualcomm took 4.8 percent of the semiconductor market share in 2015, with revenue totaling $16 billion -- down 16.7 percent from 2014.

The San Diego-based company specializes in mobile computing products, networking and the Internet of Things. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 processor with X12 LTE was unveiled in 2015 and powers several mobile vendors’ newest flagship phones, including the HTC 10, Samsung’s Galaxy S7 and HP’s Elite x3.

Qualcomm has recently been exploring other segments beyond mobile computing, including virtual reality -- Snapdragon 820 is VR-ready and available to developers in a newly released software development kit.
