The Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA), representing U.S. leadership in semiconductor manufacturing and design, today announced that worldwide semiconductor sales were $22.9 billion in February 2012, a 1.3 percent decline from the prior month’s $23.2 billion. February semiconductor sales declined 7.3 percent year over year, while the Americas region showed sequential growth at 1.1 percent over last month. All monthly sales numbers represent a 3-month moving average.

“It’s encouraging to see that the U.S. posted the third consecutive month of job gains which points to momentum in the U.S. economic recovery. However, the global picture bears close watching given the continued sluggish economies in Europe and in Asia,” said Brian Toohey, president, Semiconductor Industry Association. “Overall, the combination of improved U.S. macroeconomic factors along with sequential semiconductor sales growth in the Americas region warrants an optimistic view for growth in 2012.”
