Apple and Samsung are the two top buyers of semiconductors spending over $50 billion between them, says IHS.
Apple spent most – $30.3 billion, outspending Samsung’s $22.2 billion by more than $8 billion.
HP is third with $10.1 billion; Lenovo fourth with $9.2 billion; and Dell is fifth, with $7.7 billion.

Then come Cisco – $6.5 billion; Sony $6.4 billion; Huawei – $5.2 billion; Panasonic – $4.9 billion and Toshiba – $4.6 billion.
All told, the served available market (SAM) for semiconductor spending reached $237.2 billion in 2013, up nearly 5% after spending dipped from $231.7 billion in 2011 to $226.7 billion in 2012.
The SAM metric counts only expenditures that an OEM made as an external agent, which gives a truer picture of the state of chip spending in the electronics industry. This is because SAM does not factor in spending by manufacturers for chip buying done at their own internal divisions—as can happen with entities like Samsung, whose internal customers within the vast Samsung family of companies compete with external clients in sourcing Samsung-made semiconductors.
