SIA: Global semiconductor sales increase 3.6% over previous quarter

Worldwide sales of semiconductors totaled $123.1 billion during the first quarter of 2021, an increase of 3.6% over the previous quarter and 17.8% more than the first quarter of 2020, according to the SIA – Semiconductor Industry Association.

Sales for the month of March 2021 were $41.0 billion, an increase of 3.7% compared to the previous month. SIA represents 98% of the U.S. semiconductor industry by revenue and nearly two-thirds of non-U.S. chip firms.

“Global semiconductor sales remained strong during the first quarter of 2021, topping sales from the previous quarter and substantially outpacing the total from the first quarter of last year,” said John Neuffer, SIA president and CEO. “Year-to-year and month-to-month sales in March increased across all major regional markets, and demand grew across a range of product categories.”

According to the report, regionally, year-to-year sales increased across all markets: China (25.6%), Asia Pacific/All Other (19.6%), Japan (13.0%), the Americas (9.2%), and Europe (8.7%). Month-to-month sales increased in Europe (5.8% percent), China (5.3%), Asia Pacific/All Other (3.4%), Japan (3.1%), and the Americas (0.6%).
