IHS: Chip revenue dipped in fourth quarter
April 04, 2011 // EE Times
Global semiconductor revenue in the fourth quarter of 2010 dipped by 3.7 percent compared with the previous quarter, the first sequential decline in chip revenue since the first quarter of 2009, according to market research firm IHS iSuppli.
Revenues for the 298 semiconductor suppliers tracked by IHS fell to $77.2 billion in the fourth quarter of 2010, down from $80.1 billion in the earlier quarter, according to the firm. Revenue in the quarter was still up 11.9 percent compared to the fourth quarter of 2009, IHS said.
"The last time a sequential decline happened in the semiconductor industry was during the recent global economic downturn," said Dale Ford of HIS, in a statement. "Following steep declines of 21.4 percent in the fourth quarter of 2008 and 18 percent in the first quarter of 2009, semiconductor revenues began to increase in the second quarter of 2009 and then rose every quarter until the fourth quarter of 2010."
Despite the fourth-quarter contraction, semiconductor revenues surged by $74.5 billion in 2010, setting a new record and surpassing the prior record increase of $59.2 billion during the dot-com bubble of 2000, IHS said. The record for highest annual percentage growth in the industry remains the 36.7 percent increase seen in the year 2000, the firm said.
