Global Semiconductor Sales Increase in Second Quarter

Q2 sales up 1 percent from previous quarter, down 6 percent compared to Q2 of last year

WASHINGTON, Aug. 2, 2016 — (PRNewswire) — The Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA), representing U.S. leadership in semiconductor manufacturing, design, and research, today announced worldwide sales of semiconductors reached $79.1 billion during the second quarter of 2016, an increase of 1.0 percent over the previous quarter and a decrease of 5.8 percent compared to the second quarter of 2015. Global sales for the month of June 2016 reached $26.4 billion, an uptick of 1.1 percent over last month's total of $26.1 billion, but down 5.8 percent from the June 2015 total of $28.0 billion. Cumulatively, year-to-date sales during the first half of 2016 were 5.8 percent lower than they were at the same point in 2015. All monthly sales numbers are compiled by the World Semiconductor Trade Statistics (WSTS) organization and represent a three-month moving average.

"Global semiconductor sales increased slightly from Q1 to Q2 but remain behind the pace from last year, due largely to global economic uncertainty and sluggish demand," said John Neuffer, president and CEO, Semiconductor Industry Association. "Sales into Japan and China have been a bright spot midway through 2016, and a modest rebound in sales is projected during the second half of the year."

Regionally, sales increased compared to June 2015 in China (1.7 percent), but fell in Asia Pacific/All Other (-11.0 percent), the Americas (-10.8 percent), Europe (-5.5 percent), and Japan (-1.3 percent). Sales were up slightly compared to last month in the Americas (3.0 percent), China (2.2 percent) and Europe (1.7 percent), but down somewhat in Japan (-1.0 percent) and Asia Pacific/All Other (-0.6 percent).
