Worldwide sales of semiconductors reached US$25.2 billion for the month of February 2011, a decline of 1.1% from the prior month. Sales are still higher than in February 2010 when sales increased by 13.6% from US$22.2 billion.

"The February sales numbers released today, which show a significant increase from February 2010, predate the March 11th earthquake and tsunami in Japan. SIA extends our deepest sympathies to the Japanese people as they recover from this tragedy," said Brian C. Toohey, president, Semiconductor Industry Association. "Many of our member companies responded immediately to deliver humanitarian supplies and financial aid to the most impacted areas and continue to provide valuable assistance in the recovery efforts. We are continuing to closely monitor potential impacts on the supply chain."

On a regional basis, all regions showed a slight decline compared to the previous month.
