WASHINGTON — Worldwide sales of semiconductors were $34.5 billion in June, up 5.1% year-over-year and down 0.3% sequentially, according to the Semiconductor Industry Association.
Second quarter sales were $103.6 billion, an increase of 5.1% over the second quarter of 2019 and down 0.9% sequentially.
Monthly sales are compiled by the World Semiconductor Trade Statistics organization and represent a three-month moving average.
“Second-quarter semiconductor sales were roughly flat compared to the first quarter, and the global industry continues to post year-to-year sales increases, but significant uncertainty remains for the second half of the year due to ongoing macroeconomic headwinds,” said John Neuffer, SIA president and CEO. “Sales into the Americas stood out in June, increasing nearly 30% year-to-year.”
Regionally, sales increased on a year-over-year basis in the Americas (29%), China (4.7%), and Asia Pacific/All Other (0.4%), but decreased in Japan (2.2%) and Europe (17.1%). On a month-to-month basis, sales increased in the Americas (3.1%) and Japan (1.1%), but decreased in China (0.4%), Asia Pacific/All Other (1.5%), and Europe (6%).
