Semiconductor sales dropped 9 percent in 2009

Posted on Tuesday, February 02 2010 @ 02:11:35 CET by

The Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) estimates global semiconductor sales were $226.3 billion in 2009, a 9 percent decline from $248.6 billion in the year before.
The full-year figure was as had been expected in the last month of 2009 but much less than had been predicted in the first months of 2009 when the market had appeared to be in free fall.

The final year figure was the result of a three-month average sales figure for December of $22.43 billion, an increase of 29 percent from December 2008, when sales were $17.41 billion. Sales declined in December by 1.2 percent from November, when sales were $22.71 billion.

Now if you'd latched onto USB 3, and Intel had made it prevalent in their chipsets, maybe this wouldn't have been a decline.
