According to IHS worldwide semiconductor sales grew 5 percent to $317.9 billion in 2013. A large portion of the growth was attributed to the DRAM and NAND flash markets. "Without these two high performing product segments, the semiconductor industry would attain zero growth," IHS said in a statement.
