WASHINGTON – Worldwide sales of semiconductors were $35.2 billion in July, up 4.9% year-over-year and 2.1% sequentially, according to the Semiconductor Industry Association.  

Monthly sales are compiled by the World Semiconductor Trade Statistics organization and represent a three-month moving average.

“The global semiconductor market has remained largely resistant to global macroeconomic headwinds through the first seven months of the year, with sales in July increasing on both a year-to-year and month-to-month basis, but substantial market uncertainty remains for the rest of the year,” said John Neuffer, SIA president and CEO. “Sales into the Americas remained strong in July, increasing 26% year-to-year, and year-to-year sales were up globally among both memory and non-memory products.”

Regionally, sales increased on a year-over-year basis in the Americas (26.3%), China (3.5%), and Asia Pacific/All Other (1.4%), but decreased in Japan (0.4%) and Europe (14.7%). On a sequential basis, sales increased across all regions: Asia Pacific/All Other (4.5%), Japan (3.4%), Europe (3.2%), the Americas (0.9%), and China (0.5%).
