Earlier this month, the Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) reported that global sales of semiconductors totaled $25.87 billion in August, an increase of 6.4 percent when compared to a year ago (1.3 percent from the previous month). The year over-year growth was the largest since March 2011. Sales were driven by a 23.3 percent y-o-y increase in the Americas region, followed by a 7.6 percent increase in Asia-Pacific and 5.0 percent increase in Europe. "Global semiconductor sales have now increased for six consecutive months, and the industry is well ahead of last year’s pace, thanks largely to sustained growth in the Americas," said Brian Toohey, president and CEO, Semiconductor Industry Association. "Strong demand for memory products has driven sales in recent months, but sales were also up in August among non-memory products, demonstrating the breadth of the semiconductor market’s strength."
