Feb. 2: Global Semiconductor Sales Up 7% Year-to-Year in October: The Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) today announced Global sales for the month of December 2016 reached $31.0B, equaling the previous month’s total and bettering sales from December 2015 by 12.3%. “Following a slow start to the year, the global semiconductor market picked up steam mid-year and never looked back, reaching nearly $340 billion in sales in 2016, the industry’s highest-ever annual total. Market growth was driven by macroeconomic factors, industry trends, and the ever-increasing amount of semiconductor technology in devices the world depends on for working, communicating, manufacturing, treating illness, and countless other applications. We expect modest growth to continue in 2017 and beyond.” Thanks as always for posting these each month!
