Global semiconductor sales increase 17.4% year-to-year in July

The Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA), representing U.S. leadership in semiconductor manufacturing, design, and research, today announced worldwide sales of semiconductors reached $39.5 billion for the month of July 2018, an increase of 17.4 percent compared to the July 2017 total of $33.6 billion. Global sales in July 2018were 0.4 percent higher than the June 2018 total of $39.3 billion. All monthly sales numbers are compiled by the World Semiconductor Trade Statistics (WSTS) organization and represent a three-month moving average.

“The global semiconductor industry posted its highest-ever monthly sales in July, easily outpacing last July and narrowly ahead of last month’s total,” said John Neuffer, president and CEO, Semiconductor Industry Association. “Sales were up year-to-year across every major semiconductor product category and regional market, with the China and Americas markets leading the way with growth of greater than 20 percent.”

Regionally, sales increased compared to July 2017 in China (29.4 percent), the Americas (20.7 percent), Europe (11.7 percent), Japan (11.5 percent), and Asia Pacific/All Other (5.7 percent).
