The major competitors of Nvidia

A good knowledge of the competitive environment of the NVidia group is of course essential if you want to set up good analyses before buying or selling this stock. Here is a quick presentation of its current main opponents.


The Advanced Micro Devices group is an American manufacturer of semiconductors, microprocessors and graphics cards. It currently ranks among the top 10 semiconductor manufacturers in the world and is a leading producer and supplier of microprocessors for x86-based computers.

Intel Corporation 

Another competitor of NVidia is the American company Intel Corporation, which is also the world's largest semiconductor manufacturer in terms of turnover. It specialises in the manufacture of microprocessors, motherboards, flash memory and graphics processors. The group is listed on the Nasdaq 100 stock index and has one of the largest market capitalisations in this sector.


This other group is a spin-off of Siemens AG and is also specialised in the semiconductor segment. It was listed on the stock exchange one year after its creation in 2000 and is now the world market leader in smart card components. Infineon is one of the largest chip manufacturers in the world and ranks sixth in this ranking.


This company, also known as ST, is a Franco-Italian multinational with its operational headquarters near Geneva in Switzerland. The group designs, produces and markets electronic chips or semiconductors and is one of the world's leading players in the production of this type of product. It re-entered the CAC 40 stock index in 2017 after exiting in 2005.


The competition from the Qualcomm Group, an American company specialising in the mobile technology sector, will also be followed with interest. The company specialises in the design and implementation of telecommunications solutions. Qualcomm has become one of the world's leading companies in the design and marketing of mobile phone processors. Qualcomm is also a fabless company and is also popular because it developed CDMA technology.

Samsung Electronics

Another major competitor to NVidia is Samsung Electronics, which is a Korean electronics manufacturing company and a wholly owned subsidiary of the Samsung Group. The company currently employs over 308,000 people and is the thirteenth largest company in the world according to the Forbes Global 2000 ranking. But Samsung Electronics is also the second largest company in the global high-tech industry after Apple in terms of revenue. The Samsung Group has long been a major manufacturer of electronic components such as lithium-ion batteries, semiconductors, integrated circuits, flash memory and hard disks for customers such as Apple, Sony, HTC and Nokia. The group has recently diversified into electronics.

The major partners of Nvidia

Nvidia has developed major strategic partnerships that we detail as follows with some explanations on its recent collaborations.

Positive factors for Nvidia shares
The factors in favour of a rise in the Nvidia share price:

Investors who take a long position in Nvidia's share price are of course based on their belief that the company has good prospects for the future. But to be convinced of this, it is of course necessary to compare the analyses and weaknesses of this company in order to determine its growth capacities as accurately as possible. We will therefore first discuss here the strengths of this company and its main strengths.

First of all, the Nvidia group's main asset remains its positioning on the global market. Indeed, the company has a very strong presence in its sector of activity in many countries and also enjoys excellent popularity with the general public and with the IT industries that are part of its customers.

The Nvidia group also benefits from a strong market capacity. It is expanding its activities internationally thanks to the presence of offices in no less than 14 countries. Thus, it can effectively protect itself from local economic crises by affecting various economies with different profiles. In particular, the group has performed very well in new markets thanks to its expertise, which enables it to penetrate these markets and establish a long-term presence. This international expansion has helped the group to generate new sources of revenue and avoid the cyclical aspect of the markets in which it operates.

To increase its sales and improve its results, the Nvidia group can also count on a strong reseller community. It has thus developed a real culture among its main distributors and resellers, who play an important role in promoting its products and invest in training salespeople in order to maximize the sale of these products.

Nvidia also has a very wide range of products in the graphic units sector. Thus, it offers products of different levels and prices, which allows it to reach the entire market where some of its competitors are specialized in a specific range. Nvidia also operates several brands that are very popular, such as GeForce, Quadro, Tagra, Tesla and nForce.

The Nvidia group's ability to innovate is also a definite advantage. Working in a particularly technological field, he can rely on his research and development to invent new products that are more efficient or meet new needs. Nvidia is also at the head of a very large patent portfolio with more than 2,300 patents to date.

Finally, we can appreciate the very good financial situation of this company, which has been marked by an increase in its performance in recent years. These figures are of course highly appreciated by investors and shareholders.

Negative factors for Nvidia shares
The factors in favour of a drop in the Nvidia share price:

We have just reviewed the many strengths of the Nvidia group that should enable it to ensure its future profitability. But before taking a long-term buying position with this action, through CFDs for example, you must also know the possible obstacles to this development and therefore the weaknesses of this company. Here is a summary of the defects of this value and the weak points of the company Nvidia.

First, due to the advent of mobile devices, the group has recently experienced a decline in sales of its products for computers. Unlike some of its competitors who have anticipated this change in consumers, Nvidia has not yet been able to position itself successfully in this new market.

The group is also affected by very strong competition from other large multinational companies. As a result, it finds itself limited in its market share gains. It is also necessary to take into account Chinese competition, which is increasingly strong in the specific field of semiconductors and is driving prices down, thus adding additional pressure.

Among the most threatening competitors for Nvidia, new entrants can also be found in very specific segments that represent niche categories. The group has thus lost some of its market share because it has not been able to adapt to this new competition.

It can also be noted that the Nvidia group is unable to correctly anticipate product demand, which leads to a high rate of missed opportunities compared to its competitors. The company has thus failed to demonstrate its ability to adapt its production to the needs of its main customers, which has also led to a significant increase in stocks and therefore substantial losses.

Finally, it is also regrettable that the Nvidia group remains focused on its core business and enjoys only limited success in the other product categories. Although Nvidia is one of the leading companies in its sector, it faces significant challenges in diversifying into other types of products while maintaining its current corporate culture. In addition, the lack of choice in the range of products sold by Nvidia could lead to the loss of some of its customers who will prefer a company that can meet all their needs with a single, more complete offer.

The information supplied here is only for indicative purposes and should not be used without the completion of a comprehensive and complete fundamental analysis of this asset notably taking into account exterior data, future publications and announcements and all fundamental events and news that could influence the strengths and weaknesses or make them more or less significant.
