Global chip sales rise in August, says ESIA
October 04, 2010 // Peter Clarke
The three-month average of global sales of semiconductors for August was $25.69 billion, up 1.8 percent compared with the previous month and up 32.6 percent compared with the same month a year before, according to the European Semiconductor Industry Association (ESIA).
This came in ahead of the estimate of Bruce Diesen, an analyst at Carnegie Group (Oslo, Norway), who had said August's three-month average semiconductor sales figure would be about $25.3 billion. However the figure was just below the $25.72 billion prediction of the LRA model of market analyst Mike Cowan.
The ESIA reports figures compiled by the World Semiconductor Trade Statistics (WSTS) as a three-month average of the actual sales numbers. It is argued that this smoothes out the data which would otherwise display the effects of in-quarter reporting that tend to treat March, June, September and December as five-week months.
The growth of semiconductor sales was strongest in Japan which recorded three-month average sales of $4.041 billion. Japan's sales were up 4.1 percent sequentially but only up 19.8 percent compared with August 2009.
The Americas region recorded $4.841 billion three-month average sales, up 2.0 percent sequentially and 47.1 percent for the year-on-year. China achieved $5.415 billion up 0.8 percent sequentially and 39.5 percent compared with a year before.
The Asia-Pacific region – including China – is more than half the global market for semiconductors and the three-month average of sales for that region was $13.68 billion.
The European region showed minimal growth with three-month average sales of $3.132 billion up 0.1 percent sequentially and 29.8 percent year-on-year.
