Communications (34.1 percent of total sales) and PCs/computers (29.7 percent) remained the top semiconductor markets by end-use in 2015, according to the recently released World Semiconductor Trade Statistics (WSTS) Semiconductor End-Use Report. The report breaks down sales by end-use and regional end-market for a wide variety of semiconductor products. The figure below shows the six major […]
A newly published SIA white paper affirms that U.S. semiconductor companies do the majority of their manufacturing in the United States, and semiconductors are one of America’s top manufactured exports, behind only aircraft and automobiles.

What U.S. industry spends a higher share of sales on research and development than any other U.S. industry? What U.S. industry had a sales-revenue-per-employee ratio in 2014 of $667,000, the highest level in its history and among the highest of any U.S. industry? What U.S. industry directly employs a quarter of a million workers in […]
Next Monday, SIA will release its June 2015 global sales report (GSR), which will include global semiconductor sales totals for the first half (H1) of 2015. As we approach the halfway point, how should we assess semiconductor sales thus far, and what questions should we consider ahead of next week’s GSR release?
Next Monday, SIA will release its March 2015 global sales report (GSR), which will include sales totals for the first quarter (Q1) of 2015. With two-thirds of Q1 sales already in the books, how should we assess semiconductor sales thus far and what questions should we be thinking about ahead of next week’s GSR release?
Did you know that the global semiconductor industry reached record sales of $336 billion in 2014? Did you know that the U.S. semiconductor industry maintained market share leadership with 51 percent of the global market in 2014? Did you know that semiconductors were America’s third-leading manufactured export in 2014 behind only airplanes and automobiles? These […]
The World Semiconductor Trade Statistics (WSTS) organization recently published its annual Semiconductor End-Use Report for 2014, which breaks down sales by end-use and regional end-market for a wide variety of semiconductor products. The figure below shows the six major semiconductor end applications by percent share of total semiconductor end sales for 2014.
Last November, when I wrote about industry sales through the third quarter of 2014, I said that it was hard to envision final 2014 sales not being the highest annually on record and that a more interesting question to consider was whether final 2014 annual sales would surpass the World Semiconductor Trade Statistics’ (WSTS) forecast […]
This year is not yet complete, and analysts are already considering the outlook for 2015! Such is the case for our industry, which is known for always looking ahead, right? Given that the World Semiconductor Trade Statistics (WSTS) program released its Fall semiconductor industry forecast earlier this month on December 2, it seems appropriate now to […]
Third quarter global semiconductor industry sales reached a record high of $87 billion, as reported earlier this week in SIA’s most recent monthly global sales report. This figure marked a 5.7 percent increase over the second quarter global sales totals.
