06 Jan 2022
Global semiconductor industry sales rose 23.5% year-on-year in November to US$49.7 from US$40.2 billion a year earlier.
In a statement on its website on Jan 3, the US-based Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) said the figure was 1.5% more than the October 2021 total of US$49.0 billion.
It said the cumulative annual total of semiconductors sold through November 2021 reached 1.05 trillion, which is the industry’s highest-ever annual total.
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 global semiconductor sales remained strong in November, increasing substantially on a year-to-year basis across all major regional markets and semiconductor product categories.
“With one month of 2021 sales data still to be reported, the industry has already set a new annual record for total semiconductor sales and units shipped, as chipmakers have substantially ramped up production to address high demand,” he said.
SIA said that regionally, year-to-year sales increased in the Americas (28.7%), Europe (26.3%), Asia-Pacific/all others (22.2%), China (21.4%), and Japan (19.5%).
Month-to-month sales increased in the Americas (4.2%), Europe (3.1%), Japan (1.1%), and Asia-Pacific/all others (0.9%), but fell slightly in China (-0.2%).
