Semiconductor sales in June were 0.3 percent less than the May 2020 total of $34.6 billion. Sales during the second quarter of 2020 were $103.6 billion, an increase of 5.1 percent over the second quarter of 2019, but a small decrease of 0.9 percent compared to the first quarter of 2020.
“Second-quarter semiconductor sales were roughly flat compared to the first quarter, and the global industry continues to post year-to-year sales increases, but significant uncertainty remains for the second half of the year due to ongoing macroeconomic headwinds,” said John Neuffer, SIA president and CEO. “Sales into the Americas stood out in June, increasing nearly 30 percent year-to-year.”
Regionally, sales increased on a year-to-year basis in the Americas (29.0 percent), China (4.7 percent), and Asia Pacific/All Other (0.4 percent), but decreased in Japan (-2.2 percent) and Europe (-17.1 percent). On a month-to-month basis, sales increased slightly in the Americas (3.1 percent) and Japan (1.1 percent), but decreased in China (-0.4 percent), Asia Pacific/All Other (-1.5 percent), and Europe (-6.0 percent).
