Industry Statistics

Industry Statistics

Compared to every other domestic industry, the semiconductor industry is unique. It is perennially one of America’s top exports, and every year, chip makers and designers dramatically increase the performance of their products while decreasing prices, making high-end technology goods increasingly productive and affordable for consumers.

As a result it is important for SIA to serve as a resource for industry statistics on global sales on a monthly and yearly basis. We also serve as a repository for key data points on market drivers and end-use statistics. Please use the industry statistics section as a reliable data resource. If interested, even more statistics and charts can be accessed by becoming a Statistics Subscriber.
