Gartner has released its preliminary Top 10 semiconductor company rankings for 2010. However, a record growth year for the industry still failed to shift the entrenched top four from their rankings positions, though Intel did see its market share position decline slightly, according to the market research firm. Samsung Electronics recorded the highest growth from a non-consolidated position, while fabless leader, Qualcomm produced the lowest growth figures.

Gartner reported that Intel retained the number 1 position for the 19th consecutive year with revenue expectation of US$41.4 billion in 2010. Samsung Electronics (Number 2) is expected to generate US$28.2 billion in revenue, indicating a 59.8% increase over 2009. Intel is expected to produce revenue growth of 24.6%.

Toshiba retained the third ranking slot with expected revenue of US$12.376 billion while Texas Instruments will be virtually tied with revenue of US$12.356 billion. This would be the only potential rankings shift in the top half of the table when final figures are released.
