Worldwide sales of semiconductors were $26.28 billion in January 2014, up 8.8% from $24.15 billion in January 2013, according to data released by the Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA).

Semiconductors sales in January 2014 were the highest ever for the month of January. It was also the biggest year-to-year increase in almost three years.

Worldwide semiconductors sales in January 2014 were down 1.4% from December 2013's $26.65 billion, which the association said reflected seasonal trends.

“The global semiconductor industry has built on its record revenues from 2013 with an impressive start to 2014, led largely by continued strength in the Americas market,” said Brian Toohey, SIA's president and CEO.

January 2014 sales in the Americas were up 17.3% from January 2013.

Toohey added, “Sales in January were up across most regions and nearly all product categories compared to last January, which bodes well for continued growth during the rest of 2014.”

Regional sales in January 2014, compared to January 2013:
• Americas: sales were up 17.3%
• Europe: sales were up 11.3%
• Asia Pacific: sales were up 8.3%
• Japan: sales were down 4.7%

Regional sales in January 2014, compared to December 2013:
• Europe: sales were essentially flat
• Asia Pacific: sales were down 0.6%
• Japan: sales were down 2.3%
• Americas: sales were down 3.5%

The association said seasonal trends typically mean January sales are lower than December's.

The World Semiconductor Trade Statistics (WSTS) organization compiles the monthly statistics, which represent a three-month moving average.
