WASHINGTON, March 6, 2017 — (PRNewswire) — The Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA), representing U.S. leadership in semiconductor manufacturing, design, and research, today announced worldwide sales of semiconductors reached $30.6 billion for the month of January 2017, an increase of 13.9 percent compared to the January 2016 total of $26.9 billion. Global sales in January were 1.2 percent lower than the December 2016 total of $31.0 billion, reflecting normal seasonal market trends. January marked the global market's largest year-to-year growth since November 2010.

"Sales into the China market increased by more than 20 percent year-to-year, and most other regional markets posted double-digit growth. Following the industry's highest-ever revenue in 2016, the global market is well-positioned for a strong start to 2017."
