Global semicon sales up 5.1% y-o-y in June to US$34.5b, says SIA

04 Aug 2020

Global sales of semiconductors rose 5.1% year-on-year in June to US$34.5 billion from US$32.9 billion a year earlier, said the U.S.-based  Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA).

In a statement on its website Aug 3, SIA however said on a month-on-month basis, sales dipped 0.3% from the May sales of US$34.6 billion.

SIA said sales during the second quarter of 2020 were US$103.6 billion, an increase of 5.1% over the second quarter of 2019, but a small decrease of 0.9% compared to the first quarter of 2020.

Monthly sales are compiled by the World Semiconductor Trade Statistics (WSTS) organisation and represent a three-month moving average.

SIA president and CEO John Neuffer said second-quarter semiconductor sales were roughly flat compared to the first quarter, and the global industry continues to post year-to-year sales increases, but significant uncertainty remains for the second half of the year due to ongoing macroeconomic headwinds.

“Sales into the Americas stood out in June, increasing nearly 30% year-to-year,” he said.

SIA said regionally, sales increased on a year-to-year basis in the Americas (29.0%), China (4.7%), and Asia Pacific/All Other (0.4%), but decreased in Japan (-2.2%) and Europe (-17.1%).

On a month-to-month basis, sales increased slightly in the Americas (3.1%) and Japan (1.1%), but decreased in China (-0.4%), Asia Pacific/All Other (-1.5%), and Europe (-6.0%).
