The Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) today announcedglobal semiconductor industry sales were $50.9 billion in the month of April2022, an increase of 21.1% over the April 2021 total of $42.0 billion and 0.7%more than the March 2022 total of $50.6 billion. Monthly sales are compiled bythe World Semiconductor Trade Statistics (WSTS) organization and represent athree-month moving average. SIA represents 99% of the U.S. semiconductorindustry by revenue and nearly two-thirds of non-U.S. chip firms.

“Global semiconductor sales have increased by more than 20%on a year-to-year basis for 13 consecutive months, indicating consistently highand growing demand for semiconductors across a range of critical sectors,” saidJohn Neuffer, SIA president and CEO. “High global chip demand will necessitatemore semiconductor research, design, and manufacturing in the years ahead, andwe urge leaders in Washington to enact innovation and competitivenesslegislation that ensures more of this chip production and innovation occurs onU.S. shores.”

Sales were up compared to April 2021 in the Americas(40.9%), Europe (19.2%), Japan (18.5%), Asia Pacific/All Other (18.1%), andChina (13.3%). Month-to-month sales increased in the Americas (3.1%), Japan(1.6%), and Asia Pacific/All Other (1.2%), but fell slightly in China (-0.6%),and Europe (-3.3%).
