WASHINGTON, DC – Worldwide sales of semiconductors reached $25.53 billion for July 2013, the highest total of 2013 and an increase of 5.1% over July 2012. Sales were up 2.6% sequentially, says the Semiconductor Industry Association.

Sales in the Americas increased 21.5% compared to the same month last year, marking the region’s largest year-over-year increase in more than two years.

All monthly sales numbers are compiled by the World Semiconductor Trade Statistics organization.

“The consistent, upward trajectory of global semiconductor sales continued in July, with the Americas showing particular strength and surging ahead of last year’s pace,” said Brian Toohey, president and CEO, SIA. “Sales increased in all regions and across every product category, and macroeconomic indicators bode well for continued growth during the remainder of 2013.”

Regionally, July sales increased on a sequential basis in Japan (7.9%), the Americas (5.4%), Asia Pacific (1.2%), and Europe (0.3%).

Compared to the same month in 2012, sales in July increased sharply in the Americas (21.5%), solidly in Asia Pacific (7.2%), and modestly in Europe (1.1%), but fell steeply in Japan, down 18.6%, largely because of the devaluation of the Japanese yen.
