Global Semiconductor Sales Up 9.8%

by Nicolette Emmino

The Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) announced last week that t worldwide sales of semiconductors reached $41.4 billion for the month of November 2018, an increase of 9.8% from the November 2017 total of $37.7 billion and 1.1% less than the October 2018 total of $41.8 billion. Monthly sales are compiled by the World Semiconductor Trade Statistics (WSTS) organization and represent a three-month moving average.

“The global semiconductor industry continues to post solid year-to-year sales increases, and year-to-date revenue through November has surpassed annual sales from all of 2017, but growth has slowed somewhat in recent months,” said John Neuffer, SIA president and CEO. “Year-to-year sales increased in November across all major regional markets, with the China market standing out with growth of 17%. Double-digit annual growth is expected for 2018 once December’s sales are tallied, with more modest growth projected for 2019.”

Regionally, year-to-year sales increased in China (17.4%), the Americas (8.8%), Europe (5.8%), Japan (5.6%), and Asia Pacific/All Other (4.4%). Compared with last month, sales were up in Asia Pacific/All Other (1.1%), Europe (0.5%), and Japan (0.4%), but down slightly in the Americas (-2.2%) and China (-2.7%).
