So if IHS do not include foundries, does their reporting not include Samsung foundry revenue? This statement is confuse to me.

I don't know for sure, but I suspect that Samsung's foundry revenues are not included. Would seem kind of unfair otherwise.

According to the report, Sony's growth is driven by strong sales of CMOS image sensors.

Even with this new order there are quite big gaps between the places. Samsung is close to catchup with Intel in a couple of years is this trend continues. Interesting to see the list shared by embedded market majors.

I think TI will stable their business in year of 2013 and start growing again in year of 2014 and along that.TI have wide array of offering and solution in their disposal and also their keep churning new products and with more than 100,000 customers they have bright future ahead

TI have wide kind of products its offer and they still keep churning new and innovative products and solution. Also with broad customers base of more than 100,000 in numbers TI surely has a tool to grow again.

TI can grow in some other areas while Qualcomm is so depending on the mobile market. Of course, mobile is nowadays the red hot pie but who knows what will be the next revolutionary market that Qualcomm may not be able to turn around. TI on the other hands has too many different sections and their broad range of products will gain momentum when the economy rally back. Of course, this all depends very much on how good the management is performing!

Interesting that guys like like Freescale, TI, ST Micro etc are all stagnating in spite of their "diverse" portfolio, Qualcomm is not dependent on mobile but they are dependent on telecom, internet-of-things and connectivity and their execution and focus is driving the market.

Simple. while TI chickened out of the fast growing mobile app processor market, Qualcomm gladly took all the market share.

TI 2006 revenue $14.225 B , this tells everthing, i dont know why it's CEO was not fired inspite of ruining wireless group which used to be around $5B in 2006 and closing the same in 2012.

Interesting indicator of how tough it is out there, is ROHM moved UP from 22nd to 19th, on a DECLINE in sales of 3%.

TI long time ago have good base-band business and they are leader in DSP market with 65% market share and this was led to TI dominance in wireless telecommunication application. For comparison in back in 2008 TI DSP revenue is about $5B but now its just mere $1.1B and much of application still came from telecommunication solution. Its very hard to think why TI just gave up and kill their good revenue source. Same as the case of Sensata Technologies, I still keep searching why TI spinoff this company because Sensata is one of large MEMS player. Combined revenue of TI and Sensata MEMS revenue is about $1.1B today.

TI used to be the biggest mobile chip maker, but now Qualcomm is the third largest chip maker [1], and if the PC market keeps decling, and Intel with it, they will be #1, too, at least if Samsung has nothing to say about it. [1] - http://techdomino.com/qualcomm-3rd-biggest-chip-maker-by-revenue/
