Global Semiconductor Sales in November Outpace 2013 Totals

November sales increase 9.1 percent compared to last year, decline slightly compared to last month

WASHINGTON, Jan. 5, 2015 — (PRNewswire) —  The Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA), representing U.S. leadership in semiconductor manufacturing and design, today announced that worldwide sales of semiconductors reached $29.7 billion for the month of November 2014, an increase of 9.1 percent from the November 2013 total of $27.2 billion and a slight decrease of 0.1 percent from the October 2014 total. Year-to-date sales through November are 10 percent higher than they were at the same point in 2013. All monthly sales numbers are compiled by the World Semiconductor Trade Statistics (WSTS) organization and represent a three-month moving average.  

"Global semiconductor sales through November have matched the total from all of 2013, assuring that the industry will achieve a new record for sales in 2014," said Brian Toohey, president and CEO, Semiconductor Industry Association. "Demand remains strong across nearly all semiconductor product categories, and the Americas and Asia Pacific regional markets continue to post the most robust growth. Macroeconomic trends bode well for continued growth into 2015."

Regionally, year-to-year sales increased in the Asia Pacific (12.3 percent), the Americas (11.1 percent), and Europe (3.4 percent), but decreased in Japan (-4.5 percent). Sales were up compared to the previous month in the Americas (1.8 percent), but decreased slightly in Asia Pacific (-0.2 percent), Europe (-0.7 percent), and Japan (-2.6 percent). Sales were higher across all regions through November than they were through the same point last year.
