Shipments of tablet-use application processors to the China market are set to register growth of 24.9% sequentially and 53.3% on year in the third quarter of 2013, according to Digitimes Research.

The top-3 suppliers - Allwinner, Rockchip and MediaTek - are expected to contribute a combined 70.2% to the overall tablet AP shipments to China in the third quarter, Digitimes Research indicated.

Allwinner is forecast to ship a total of seven million tablet APs to the China market in the third quarter, up 16.7% on quarter, Digitimes Research said. Shipments of single-core solutions will continue to account for more than 70% of Allwinner's shipments in the third quarter, Digitimes Research added.

Rockchip's tablet AP shipments to China are set to total about six million units in the third quarter, rising by 33% sequentially, while MediaTek's shipments will increase by a larger 42.9% on quarter to five million units, Digitimes Research said.

Buoyed by new orders placed by China-based brand tablet companies, MediaTek has enjoyed significant growth in third-quarter shipments, Digitimes Research noted. MediaTek's share of the China tablet AP market is expected to reach 19.5% in the third quarter, compared with 16.7% in the second quarter and only 1.2% in third-quarter 2012, according to Digitimes Research.
