Global semiconductor sales up 13.2% in January YoY, says SIA

The Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) reports that global semiconductor industry sales in January 2021 were US$40 billion, an YoY increase of 13.2%, and an increase of 1.0% from US$39.6 billion in December 2020. 

“Global semiconductor sales got off to a strong start in 2021, increasing both year-to-year and month-to-month in January,” said John Neuffer, SIA president and CEO. “Global semiconductor production is on the rise to meet increasing demand and ease the ongoing chip shortage affecting the auto sector and others, and annual sales are projected to increase in 2021.”

Regionally, year-to-year sales increased across all markets: Asia Pacific/All Other (16.0%), the Americas (15.4%), China (12.4%), Japan (9.6%), and Europe (6.4%). Month-to-month sales increased in China (3.4%), Europe (2.0% percent), and Asia Pacific/All Other (1.5%), but were down in Japan (-1.0%) and the Americas (-3.0%).
