The Asia Pacific delivered upbeat month-on-month semiconductors sales, which were up 2.1 per cent at $15.75 billion in June, according to the Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA).

Year-over-year and month-over-month sales increased across all regions for the first time since August 2010. Sequential monthly sales were up 2.1 per cent in Europe, 1.8 per cent in the Americas, and 1.6 per cent in Japan. Japan posted three straight months of year-to-year growth, which was never seen in nearly two years.

Worldwide sales of semiconductors reached $26.86 billion for the month of May 2014, 8.8 per cent higher than the May 2013, totalling $24.69 billion and 2.0 per cent more than last month's total of $26.34 billion.

"The global semiconductor market posted healthy growth throughout all regions in May, led by continued strength in the Americas," said Brian Toohey, president and CEO, Semiconductor Industry Association. "Year-over-year sales increased across nearly all semiconductor product categories, with DRAM and analogue products leading the way. Overall, the global market has posted growth each month for over a year, and sales are expected to increase for the foreseeable future."

Sales in the Americas increased 10.6 per cent year-over-year in May, marking the region's twelfth consecutive month of double-digit growth. All monthly sales numbers are compiled by the World Semiconductor Trade Statistics organisation and represent a three-month moving average.
