"While worldwide semiconductor sales remain well behind the totals reached in 2018, month-to-month sales increased in two consecutive months for the first time in nearly a year," said John Neuffer, SIA president and CEO.

Regionally, sales increased on a month-to-month basis in the Americas (4.1 percent), Asia Pacific/All Other (3.8 percent), China (1.8 percent), and Japan (1.1 percent), but decreased in Europe (-0.8 percent).
