Semiconductor industry is looking good. Or is it?

The semiconductor sales for January look quite promising on the surface with worldwide sales of $28.5 billion. While this is an increase of 8.7% from January 2014, the growth is led mostly by US and Asian sales. The European sales total $2.944 billion  - and that's a drop of 3.2% compared to this time last year.

The figures come from the Semiconductor Industry Association and their CEO John Neuffer was very pleased with the results: "After a record-setting 2014, the global semiconductor industry is off to a promising start to 2015, posting its highest-ever January sales led by impressive growth in the Americas market,"

So America is doing well but what about the rest of us here in Europe? Sales are still staying strong, despite the drop in January. Hopefully the industry as a whole will continue to flourish, allowing the European market to come out the other end in a better position.
