Keywords:TV IC market? Mediatek? TV IC shipments? Taiwan ODMs?

The worldwide market for TV ICs reached 26.6 million units in Q1 08, up 26 percent from Q1 07. Shipments were down 6.4 percent from Q4 07, as TV set makers cut back in line with seasonality. This is according to the shipment data for the "Quarterly TV Electronics Report" of DisplaySearch.

Mediatek took the top spot with a 19.5 percent share, as design wins at Samsung reached mass production and demand grew from Taiwan ODMs. Trident fell to second with a 15.7 percent share, down from 18.9 percent, which tied for rank one with Mediatek in Q4 07. Meanwhile, Zoran managed to increase shipments in the quarter to 1.9 million units as design wins at ODMs came to fruition (Table 1).

"These results show the growing power of ODMs in shaping the TV industry," said Paul Gray, director of European TV Research at DisplaySearch. "The battles in TV chips are by no means over, as we see a new market leader emerge this quarter."
