Worldwide sales of semiconductors were $24.4 billion in May 2012, up 1.4% over April 2012's sales of $24.1 billion, according to the Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA).

"The upward trend of global semiconductor sales is encouraging," said Brian Toohey, president and CEO, Semiconductor Industry Association. "Recent sales totals are in line with industry projections of modest growth for the remainder of 2012, but a sluggish global economy continues to provide substantial headwinds, limiting more robust growth."
