Global chip sales up 56% in February


The Semiconductor Industry Association said chip sales rose to $22 billion in February from the prior year. But it was down slightly from January’s $22.3 billion. Chip sales hit a trough early last year, enhancing the year-over-year gain.  Sales in the Asia Pacific region excluding Japan led the recovery, up 78.6 per cent to $12.1 billion in February from the prior year. 

Sales in the Americas followed rose 47.8 per cent to $3.6 billion. Europe and Japan sales gained 36.5 per cent and 23.7 percent respectively, to $2.9 billion and $3.4 billion. Monthly chip sales figures are three-month moving averages to smooth out volatility.
