compiled by IC Insights of Arizona.

The Magnificent Seven, with growth above the overall semiconductor market growth rate of 31% were:

1 Mstar 605 – 1,067 76%

2 Altera 1,196 – 1,954 63%

3 Broadcom 4,271 – 6,589 54%

4 Novatek 819 – 1,149 40%

5 Avago 858 – 1,187 38%

6 Xilinx 1,699 – 2,311 36%

7 Marvell 2,690 – 3,592 34%

The Magnificent Seven represented a 47% increase in IC sales last year, and accounted for 45% of the total increase in fabless IC sales in 2010 ($5.7bn out of $12.6bn.

Overall the fabless industry had a less than successful year growing 27% which was less than the semiconductor industry as a whole – the first year on record that the fabless segment did not outperform the industry as a whole.

This was due to the relatively poor performance of Qualcomm, MediaTek, Nvidia, LSI Corp., ST-Ericsson, Realtek, and Himax which, in total, only increased their sales by 8%.
