Dual-core phones expected to make up 15% of smartphones in 2011, rising to 45% in 2015
Metrics company Strategy Analytics issued a new report on Thursday that predicts a 15% penetration of the smartphone market worldwide by handsets powered by dual-core processors. According to the report, Samsung, NVIDIA, Qualcomm, ST-Ericsson, Texas Instruments, Marvell, Renesas and Broadcom are well-positioned to benefit from the start of this new multi-core era.

Stuart Robinson, Strategy Analytics' Director of Handset Components Technology Service says,
"We estimate Samsung will lead the smartphone multi-core applications processor market in 2011, followed by Qualcomm, NVIDIA, ST-Ericsson and Texas Instruments." Of these firms,
Qualcomm and ST-Ericsson are expected to be the only two m
anufacturers to produce multi-core processors with integrated baseboards. Sravan Kundojjala, Senior Analyst for Strategy Analytics said, "The baseband-integrated multi-core applications processors will account for about one-third of total smartphone multi-core applications processor shipments in 2011, with potential for higher share in the future. By contrast, the market for single-core apps processors is now dominated by baseband-integrated products.”

Overall, the firm expects multi-core processors as a group to rise from the expected 15% share of the smartphone market in 2011, to as high as 45% by 2015.
