Global Semiconductor Sales Surge 5.3% Year-over-Year in November: Industry Poised for Strong 2024 Growth

In a significant development for the global technology sector, the Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) reported a substantial year-over-year increase of 5.3% in global semiconductor industry sales for November 2023. This boost, as announced today by the SIA, signifies a positive turn of events for the chip market, indicating renewed strength as the industry transitions into the new year.

The total global semiconductor sales for November 2023 reached an impressive $48.0 billion, surpassing the figures from November 2022, which stood at $45.6 billion. This also represents a 2.9% increase from the October 2023 total of $46.6 billion. These monthly sales figures are compiled by the World Semiconductor Trade Statistics (WSTS) organization and are presented as a three-month moving average. The SIA, which represents 99% of the U.S. semiconductor industry by revenue and almost two-thirds of non-U.S. chip firms, is at the forefront of delivering these crucial industry insights.

SIA President and CEO John Neuffer expressed optimism about the industry’s trajectory, stating, “Global semiconductor sales increased on a year-to-year basis in November for the first time since August 2022, an indication that the global chip market is continuing to gain strength as we enter the new year.” Neuffer further projected that the global semiconductor market is set to experience double-digit growth in 2024, pointing towards a promising future for the industry.

Breaking down the regional performance, year-over-year sales exhibited positive growth in China (7.6%), Asia Pacific/All Other (7.1%), Europe (5.6%), and the Americas (3.5%). However, sales in Japan experienced a slight decline (-0.7%), and Europe also witnessed a decrease (-2.8%). On a month-to-month basis, sales increased in China (4.4%), the Americas (3.9%), and Asia Pacific/All Other (3.5%), while Japan (-0.7%) and Europe (-2.0%) reported a decrease.

The positive year-over-year performance is seen as a strong indicator of the semiconductor industry’s resilience and recovery, signaling potential growth and stability in the coming months. As the industry looks ahead, stakeholders are cautiously optimistic about the projected double-digit growth in 2024, paving the way for continued innovation and technological advancements.
