Global Chip Revenue Rose by 5% In 2013

According to latest research from IHS Technology, worldwide semiconductor revenue rose a solid 5% in 2013, with memory chips performing best.

The total semiconductor revenue in 2013 reached $318.1 billion, which was up from $303.1 billion in 2012.

2013 ended particularly well, as fourth quarter revenue climbed 7.6% compared to the same period during 2012. This came as promising news after 2012 saw a 2.4% decrease from 2011's total revenue of $310.6 billion.

Vice President of IHS Technology, Dale Ford states that “Memory ICs were the key driver of growth in the semiconductor industry in 2013. Dynamic random access memory (DRAM) showed the strongest expansion among major memory segments, with revenue surging by 32.5% as suppliers were able to achieve a balance between supply and demand that yielded lucrative pricing for parts. NAND flash also posted a strong year – at 24.2% growth – as demand for the memory from smartphones and tablets continued to rise”.
