Semiconductor Industry Association Forecast 2010 - 2012

WASHINGTON — (BUSINESS WIRE) — November 4, 2010 — The Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) today released its annual forecast of global semiconductor sales for 2010 through 2012, projecting record sales of $300.5 billion in 2010, an increase of 32.8%. The forecast calls for sales to grow by 6.0% in 2011, to $318.7 billion, followed by an increase of 3.4% to $329.7 billion in 2012. The projected compound annual growth rate is estimated to be 13.4% for the period 2009 through 2012.

“We experienced record sales this year due to strong global demand across a broad range of end markets,” said SIA President Brian Toohey. “We expect more moderate growth through 2012 as the economy recovers and consumer confidence restores,” Toohey concluded.
