2004 Global Semiconductor Sales Reach $213 Billion

“Strong demand from a very broad spectrum of end markets propelled worldwide semiconductor sales to a record $213 billion in 2004,” says SIA President George Scalise. “For the first time since 2000, global chip sales surpassed $200 billion. The industry’s growth over the past 3 years is even more remarkable when viewed in a broader perspective. Worldwide sales of semiconductors fell to $139 billion in 2001 following the collapse of the dot-com boom, the 9/11 terrorist attacks, and a mild economic downturn.”
