PETALING JAYA: Worldwide sales of semiconductors rose 29.2% to US$44.5bil in June 2021 against US$34.5bil in June 2020, according to the Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA).

“Sales in June were 2.1% more than the May 2021 total of US$43.6bil. Sales during the second quarter of 2021 were US$133.6bil, an increase of 29.2% over the second quarter of 2020 and 8.3% more than the first quarter of 2021,” SIA said in a statement.

Monthly sales are compiled by the World Semiconductor Trade Statistics (WSTS) organisation and represent a three-month moving average.

SIA represents 98% of the US semiconductor industry by revenue and nearly two-thirds of non-U.S. chip firms.

“Second-quarter (Q2) semiconductor sales were up significantly compared to Q2 of last year, increasing across all major product categories and in every major regional market,” SIA president and CEO John Neuffer said.

He added that the demand for semiconductors was projected to continue to rise substantially in the long term.

Regionally, year-to-year sales increased in Europe (43.2%), Asia Pacific/All Other (34.0%), China (28.3%), the Americas (22.9%), and Japan (21.2%).

Month-to-month sales increased in the Americas (5.4%), Japan (2.5%), Europe (2.0%), China (1.1%), and Asia Pacific/All Other (1.0%).
