“Apple and MediaTek have taken the lead in the Arm-based laptop processor market. Apple will capture nearly 80% of revenue in 2021, thanks to its Apple Silicon M1. MediaTek, on the other hand, will rank number two, thanks to its early leadership in the Arm-based Chromebook PC processor market, ”said Sravan Kundojjala, associate director of Handset Component Technologies at Strategy Analytics, in a statement.

In terms of units, Arm-based laptop processor shipments will double in 2021, accounting for over 10% of total laptop processor shipments.
“Qualcomm, despite its close partnership with Microsoft on the Windows operating system, has so far been unable to make a dent in the laptop market. Qualcomm is investing heavily in the IT market with its acquisition of Nuvia, and we won’t see results until 2023. In the short term, Qualcomm can focus on Chromebooks to capture MediaTek shares, ”Kundojjala added.
Meanwhile, global PC shipments totaled 84.1 million units in the third quarter of 2021, a 1% increase from the third quarter of 2020, a Gartner report recently revealed.
As Covid-19 vaccines become more widely available, consumer and education spending has started to shift away from PCs to other priorities, slowing market dynamics.
