Compared to every other domestic industry, the semiconductor industry is unique. It is perennially one of America’s top exporting industries, and every year, semiconductor manufacturers 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. If interested, even more statistics and charts can be accessed by becoming a Subscriber.
