Every year several tens of millions of devices ship with Ingenic chips.
Whether something is an alternative or not depends on the product, but
if it's just the price of the IC, yes sure Ingenic is a lot cheaper.
Comparable chips from Marvell/TI or so are around 20 USD, Ingenic maybe
2-5 USD. But the Ingenic chips are a few generations behind.
