2. Samsung Electronics
South Korean company Samsung Electronics took 11.3 percent of worldwide semiconductor market share in 2015. The company totaled $37.8 billion in revenue in 2015, a 9 percent increase in revenue from the previous year.
Samsung’s dominance in the mobile industry gives the company an edge over companies with a larger investment in desktop applications -- the company’s Exynos 8 Octa SoC integrates modem and application processor (AP) on a single chip for smartphones and tablets.
