The chip market continued to operate well behind 2018 levels in August 2019 but the three-month average of sales showed a sequential rise for the second consecutive month, according to the Semiconductor Industry Association
vilsion, Oct, 08, 2019  — The three-month average of worldwide sales of chips was $34.2 billion in August 2019, a decrease of 15.9 percent from the August 2018 total of $40.7 billion but 2.5 percent more than the July 2019 total of $33.4 billion. The chip market slump is attributable to multiple causes including the end of a high-priced memory cycle, a slowing of consumer electronics replacement cycles effecting smartphone and other sales, and US-China trade tension. Of all the geographical semiconductor markets America's region continued to show the largest year-on-year fall, being down 28.8 percent. All the regions suffered contractions in sales year-on-year but Europe suffered the least dip at 8.6 ...
By products segment semiconductors and passives remained close to the previous year s levels at €623 million and €112 million
vilsion, Nov, 01, 2019  — Sales of electronic components through distribution in Germany fell by 2 percent in 2Q19 and the order situation remains poor, according to the Fachverband Bauelemente-Distribution (FBDi eV) organization. The book-to-bill ratio and bookings have been falling since the 3Q18. In 2Q19 sales under to members under the FBDi umbrella dropped by 2 percent €879 million. In the same quarters orders weakened to around €748 million, equating to a book-to-bill ratio of 0.85. Georg Steinberger, FBDi chairman of the board, attributed the situation to the general uncertainty caused by Brexit, controversy in customs and other macroeconomic distortions as well as some longer term "hard realit...
Global semiconductor revenue was $203 7 billion, down from $236 6 billion in the first half of 2018 – the largest fall in revenue since the market dropped by 26 5% in the first half of 2009
vilsion, Nov, 08, 2019  — IHS Markit has estimated that chip sales in the first half of 2019 dropped by 13.9% over a year earlier, the largest fall in a half since the first half of 2009. In that period, chip suppliers saw their worst revenue declines in years, while product areas also saw the largest drops in a decade. Global semiconductor revenue was $203.7 billion, down from $236.6 billion in the first half of 2018 – the largest fall in revenue since the market dropped by 26.5% in the first half of 2009. “It’s hard to overstate how bad things were for semiconductor suppliers in the first half,” said Ron Ellwanger, senior research analyst at IHS Markit. “Every region, almost every...
