Global semiconductor industry sales rose 32.4% year-on-year (y-o-y) in February to $52.5 billion from US$39.6 billion a year earlier, said the US-based Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA).
In a statement on its website on Tuesday (April 5), SIA said the figure was 3.4% more than the January 2022 total of US$50.7 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 global semiconductor sales remained strong in February, increasing by more than 20% for the eleventh consecutive month on a y-o-y basis.
“Sales into the Americas continued to outpace other regional markets, increasing by 43.2% y-o-y in February,” he said.
SIA said that in addition to the year-to-year sales increase in the Americas, sales were up compared to February 2021 in Asia-Pacific/all others (41.4%), Europe (29.3%), China (21.8%), and Japan (21.6%).
Month-on-month sales increased in Asia-Pacific/all others (18.6%) and Europe (1.4%), but fell slightly in Japan (-1.3%), China (-2.3%), and the Americas (-3.0%).
