Gartner's final top 10 ranking of chip vendors for 2013 is similar to that of IC Insights (see Memory, firms, fabless climb chip vendor ranking) but with a couple of significant differences.

Other observations from Gartner included that the combined revenue of the top 25 semiconductor vendors increased by 6.9 percent during 2013 and the memory market increased 23.5 percent in 2013. Both of these figures are ahead of the market average and display the affect of consolidation, particularly in the memory market.
