The Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) recently reported that global sales of semiconductors totaled $26.28 billion in January, which was the highest sales total ever for January and an increase of 8.8 percent year-over-year. Sales in the Americas region experienced 17.3 percent year-over-year growth in January. "The global semiconductor industry has built on its record revenues from 2013 with an impressive start to 2014, led largely by continued strength in the Americas market," said Brian Toohey, president and CEO, Semiconductor Industry Association. "Sales in January were up across most regions and nearly all product categories compared to last January, which bodes well for continued growth during the rest of 2014."
