Uncertainty remains for the second half of the year

The monthly sales are compiled by the World Semiconductor Trade Statistics (WSTS) organisation and represent a three-month moving average. John Neuffer, SIA president and CEO said, “Second-quarter semiconductor sales were roughly flat compared to the first quarter, and the global industry continues to post year-to-year sales increases, but significant uncertainty remains for the second half of the year due to ongoing macroeconomic headwinds. Sales into the Americas stood out in June, increasing nearly 30 percent year-to-year.”
