The Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) has announced that worldwide sales of semiconductors was $33.4 billion in July 2019. That’s 1.7% more than the June 2019 total of $32.8 billion, but 15.5% less than the July 2018 total of $39.5 billion.
Monthly sales are compiled by the World Semiconductor Trade Statistics (WSTS) organization and represent a three-month moving average.
“While global semiconductor sales in July were once again down on a year-to-year basis, month-to-month sales were up slightly,” said John Neuffer, SIA president and CEO. “Month-to-month sales increased modestly across most regional markets in July, with Asia Pacific and the Americas posting the largest gains, although sales into the Americas remained down on a year-to-year basis.”
Regionally, sales increased on a month-to-month basis in Asia Pacific/All Other (3.1%), the Americas (2.5%), China (1.1%), and Japan (0.7 percent), but decreased in Europe (-0.5%). On a year-to-year basis, sales were down across all regional markets: Europe (-8.6%), Asia Pacific/All Other (-11.0%), Japan (-12.0%), China (-14.1%), and the Americas (-27.8 %).
