Global Semiconductor Sales Down Slightly Year-to-Year in January

Worldwide sales from January 2020 were 0.3 percent less than sales from January 2019; month-to-month sales down 2.2 percent globally

WASHINGTON, March 2, 2020 — (PRNewswire) — The Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) today announced worldwide sales of semiconductors were $35.4 billion for the month of January 2020, a decrease of 0.3 percent from the January 2019 total of $35.5 billion and 2.2 percent less than the December 2019 total of $36.2 billion. All monthly sales numbers are compiled by the  World Semiconductor Trade Statistics (WSTS) organization and represent a three-month moving average. SIA represents U.S. leadership in semiconductor manufacturing, design, and research, with members accounting for approximately 95 percent of U.S. semiconductor company sales.

"The global semiconductor market got off to a solid start in 2020, with the industry nearly posting positive year-to-year sales growth for the first time in more than a year," said John Neuffer, SIA president and CEO. "Still, the global market faces significant macroeconomic headwinds, including global trade unrest and ongoing concerns about worldwide spread of the coronavirus, which could limit continued market recovery."

Regionally, year-to-year sales increased slightly in China (5.2 percent) and the Americas (0.8 percent), but fell in Asia Pacific/All Other (-4.1 percent), Japan (-5.0 percent), and Europe (-5.6 percent). Compared to last month, sales increased in Europe (1.2 percent), but were down across all other regional markets: Asia Pacific/All Other (-0.7 percent), Japan (-1.9 percent), the Americas (-2.1 percent), and China (-4.3 percent).
