"Global semiconductor sales fell across the board in February, with all major product categories experiencing drops on a year-to-year and month-to-month basis," said John Neuffer, SIA president and CEO. "Sales were also down across all major regional markets, as the global industry continues to endure a period of slowing sales following record revenues over the last three years."

Regionally, sales decreased both month-to-month and year-to-year across all regional markets: Europe (-2.3 percent month-to-month/-3.0 percent year-to-year), Asia Pacific/All Other (-5.1 percent/-7.2 percent), Japan (-5.3 percent/-5.9 percent), China (-7.8 percent/-8.5 percent), and the Americas (-12.9 percent/-22.9 percent).
