Apple will be the largest customer of 5nm chips in 2021.

As reported by analyst firm Counterpoint Researchthe 5nm chip market will continue to experience rapid expansion in 2021 as companies like Apple continue to invest in the technology and roll out processors to more and more devices.

The company expects shipments of 5nm chips to account for 5%, a 4% increase over last year. Additionally, Counterpoint also claims that Apple will be the largest 5nm chip customer, as the company will use the aforementioned processors on its new iPhones, Macs and iPad Pro’s.

According to the data, TSMC, Apple’s longtime supplier, will see big growth this year (between 13 and 16%), surpassing the industry average .

Analysts estimate that the entire market has produced “above-expected revenue” in 2020, and this growth will continue into 2021. Although the industry has experienced 23% year-on-year revenue growth in 2020, up to $ 82 billion. , Counterpoint estimates it will grow to $ 92 billion in 2021, an annual increase of 12% .
