03 Sep 2020
Global sales of semiconductors rose 4.9% year-on-year in July to US$35.2 billion from US$33.5 billion a year earlier, said the US-based Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA).
In a statement on its website Sept 3, SIA said that on a month-on-month basis, the figure was 2.1% higher than the June 2020 total of US$34.5 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 the global semiconductor market has remained largely resistant to global macroeconomic headwinds through the first seven months of the year, with sales in July increasing on both a year-to-year and month-to-month basis, but substantial market uncertainty remains for the rest of the year.
“Sales into the Americas remained strong in July, increasing 26 percent year-to-year, and year-to-year sales were up globally among both memory and non-memory products,” he said.
SIA said that regionally, sales increased on a year-to-year basis in the Americas (26.3%), China (3.5%), and Asia Pacific/All Other (1.4%), but decreased in Japan (-0.4%) and Europe (-14.7%).
It said that on a month-to-month basis, sales increased across all regions: Asia Pacific/All Other (4.5%), Japan (3.4%), Europe (3.2%), the Americas (0.9%), and China (0.5%).
