WASHINGTON—Oct. 3, 2016—The Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA), representing U.S. leadership in semiconductor manufacturing, design, and research, today announced worldwide sales of semiconductors reached $28.0 billion for the month of August 2016, an increase of 3.5 percent compared to the previous month’s total of $27.1 billion and an uptick of 0.5 percent over the August 2015 total of $27.9 billion. August marked the market’s largest month-to-month growth since May 2013 and its first year-to-year growth since June 2015. All monthly sales numbers are compiled by the World Semiconductor Trade Statistics (WSTS) organization and represent a three-month moving average.

“Following months of sluggish global semiconductor sales, the global market recently has shown signs of a rebound, punctuated by solid growth in August,” said John Neuffer, president and CEO, Semiconductor Industry Association. “The Americas market was particularly encouraging, topping 6 percent month-to-month growth for the first time in nearly three years to lead all regional markets. China also stood out, posting by far the strongest year-to-year growth of all regions in August. All told, global sales are still behind last year’s pace, but appear to be on the right track as 2017 draws closer.”

Month-to-month sales increased across all regions: the Americas (6.3 percent), Japan (4.8 percent), China (3.1 percent), Asia Pacific/All Other (2.7 percent), and Europe (0.7 percent). Year-to-year sales increased in China (7.1 percent) and Japan (2.2 percent), but fell in Asia Pacific/All Other (-2.7 percent), the Americas (-3.1 percent), and Europe (-3.3 percent).
