Sales into the Americas fell sharply, decreasing 19.3 percent year-to-year, while year-to-year sales into China increased 3.5 percent.

"Global semiconductor sales slipped somewhat in February, due to normal seasonal trends, demand softening, and unfavorable macroeconomic conditions," said John Neuffer, president and CEO, Semiconductor Industry Association. "Most regional markets have struggled to overcome these headwinds, and sales have dipped across the majority of semiconductor product categories."

Regionally, sales decreased nearly across the board: China (-4.6 percent month-to-month/+3.5 percent year-to-year), Europe (-0.9 percent/-6.3 percent), Japan (-0.8 percent/-3.5 percent), Asia Pacific/All Other (-0.7 percent/-6.3 percent), and the Americas (-7.0 percent/-19.3 percent).

Sales also decreased across most major semiconductor product categories, with the notable exception of microprocessors, which increased year-to-year by 3.4 percent.
