Global semiconductor sales hit by Thai floods

The Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) has announced worldwide sales of semiconductors were $25.1bn for the month of November 2011, a 2.4% decline compared with the previous month when sales were $25.7bn (see Ti Dashboard – Semi Conductor Sales).

For the first eleven months of the year sales increased 0.8%, compared with the same period in 2010. All monthly sales numbers represent a three-month moving average.

"Supply chain disruptions resulting from the floods in Thailand have impacted semiconductor sales in the near term, however original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) are expected to recover production losses over the course of the next few months," said Brian Toohey, president, Semiconductor Industry Association. "November sales were additionally affected by the continuing European financial crisis which is having a broad impact on other economies and global demand."
