The share of laptops on Arm processors will grow tenfold

The share of laptops on Arm processors will grow tenfold in the market from 2020 to 2023 – Intel is losing ground

Processors based on the ARM architecture are trying to break into the laptop market more and more actively. According to DigiTimes portal experts, by 2023 their share will reach 13.9%. Although at first glance this is not very much in relation to the total mass, the share will increase tenfold compared to 2020 – this year there were only 1.4% of such models on the market. At the same time, Intel is actively losing its position in the mobile PC market.

According to the Tom’s Hardware portal, the DigiTimes report reflects another trend – the dominance of Intel solutions in the notebook market seems to be gradually coming to an end. At the same time, the entire segment is suffering from the currently difficult overall economic situation and the decline in sales after the pandemic has weakened.

DigiTimes notes that the overall laptop market in 2022 will see a 22.8% year-on-year decline, with a total of approximately 190 million units shipped. For 2023, however, experts are forecasting a relative stabilization in demand – sales should be around the level of 200 million laptops. Changes in sales are expected to be up to 10%.

Apple has played a major role in promoting the ARM architecture in the laptop market and as of 2020 has been promoting the MacBook on its own ARM chipsets. In return, Qualcomm improves the solutions intended for Windows. Additionally, Chromebook sales on ARM have picked up some momentum recently, but to a lesser extent than other platforms.

Meanwhile, Intel is losing its lead in the notebook segment due to a series of issues. Alongside ARM processors, which challenged the dominance of the x86 architecture, AMD is gaining strength. Ryzen models have proven to be competitive in the notebook market, which is why they are increasingly trusted by manufacturers and customers. While Intel’s share of the laptop market was 82.2% in 2016 according to DigiTimes (AMD accounted for 17.8% in the same year), in Q2 2022 Intel had only 63.5% of the market and AMD strengthened its position to 36.4%.

It is assumed that from 2024 onwards other important changes will come – Qualcomm intends to introduce computer chipsets based on Nuvia developments, which will give a new impetus to the promotion of the ARM architecture.
