Global semiconductor industry sales rose 26.8% year-on-year to US$50.7 billion in January 2022, from US$40 billion a year earlier, said the US-based Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA).
In a statement on its website on Thursday (March 3), SIA said the figure was 0.2% less than the December 2021 total of US$50.9 billion.
Monthly sales are compiled by the World Semiconductor Trade Statistics (WSTS) organization and represent a three-month moving average.
SIA president and CEO John Neuffer said following record sales and units shipped in 2021, global semiconductor sales remained strong at the beginning of 2022, reaching the second-highest-ever monthly total in January.
“Global sales in January increased by more than 20% for the tenth consecutive month on a year-to-year basis, and sales into the Americas increased by 40.2% year-to-year in January to lead all regional markets,” he said.
SIA said that in addition to the year-to-year sales increase in the Americas, sales were up compared to January 2021 in Europe (28.7%), China (24.4%), Asia Pacific/All Other (21.0%), and Japan (18.9%).
Month-to-month sales increased in Europe (3.4%) and Asia Pacific/All Other (0.4%), but fell slightly in China (-0.7%), the Americas (-1.1%), and Japan (-1.3%).
