SIA says chip sales are up

“The strong year-on-year growth of more than 30 percent reflects the steady improvement in business conditions, a trend which we expect will continue throughout 2004,” says SIA President George Scalise. “The modest sequential growth in worldwide semiconductor sales reported for February is consistent with normal cyclical patterns. While growth was largely driven by a rebound in corporate information technology spending, the current growth cycle extends to all end markets and major product areas. We are encouraged by the recovery in demand in the wireline communications sector. Customers remain cautious about inventories, and February shipments actually trailed semiconductor consumption. As a result, we do not expect inventory corrections will be a drag on chip sales going forward.”
