Global semiconductor sales in June, 2011 were US$24.7 billion, a 1.5% decline from the prior month, according to new figures from the Semiconductor Industry Association. Sales in the second quarter were down 2% compared to the prior quarter, though seasonally typical. However, global semiconductor sales in the first-half of 2011 were 3.7% higher.

“Despite this month’s modest contraction in sales, the industry saw a 3.7 percent increase in the first half of 2011 sales compared to the same period last year which saw record breaking growth,” said Brian Toohey, president, Semiconductor Industry Association. “Overall semiconductor sales are on track with growth projections of 5.4 percent growth for 2011.”

All regions experienced growth, year to date over last year, except Japan. The SIA said that semiconductor content would continue to increase across all sectors of end-use products especially in the automotive sector.
