Global semiconductor sales dip in April

New figures from the Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) show worldwide sales of semiconductors were $ 34.4 billion for the month of April 2020, 1.2 percent less than the March, but 6.1 percent more than the April 2019 total of $ 32.4 billion.

“Global semiconductor sales in April slipped slightly compared to the previous month, which is in line with seasonal trends, but significantly outpaced sales from April 2019,” said John Neuffer, SIA president and CEO. “The global semiconductor market through April has shown early signs of resilience to the economic turmoil caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, but significant uncertainty remains in the months ahead.”

Regionally, month-to-month sales increased in China (2.1 percent), but decreased in Japan (-0.9 percent), the Americas (-1.1 percent), Asia Pacific/All Other (-3.1 percent), and Europe (-7.6 percent).
