George Scalise, President, the Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA), an industry trade group, declared 2006 as the ‘Year of the Consumer’ in the electronics industry in news published by The Associated Press. He added, “Sales growth was largely driven by popular consumer products such as cell phones, MP3 players, and HDTV sets - all products that have proliferated as semiconductor technology has enabled dramatically lower costs coupled with improved functionality."

Semiconductor sales for 2006 were $247.7 Billion, up by 9% from $227.5 Billion in 2005. This is because developments in semiconductor technology have empowered the companies to curtail their costs to manufacture chips while also enhancing performance.

Semiconductor sales in December ’06 were slightly lower than November’06 but gained year-on-year to close at $21.7 Billion, up by 9% from December’05. The worldwide sales for quarter four registered at $65.2 Billion, again a 9% hike over previous year.

The SIA reported that over 34 Million digital music players were sold in US in 2006. Though the growth rate of these devices is projected to slow down, their semiconductor component is predicted to gain momentum as companies add more functions like increased storage capacity and video playback.

The group stated that around 235 Million PCs were sold worldwide in 2006, showing a somewhat weakening growth rate. But PCs continue to use a significant portion of the total semiconductor manufactured. The SIA projects global semiconductor sales to report a further 10% hike in 2007 to clock in at $274 Billion.

The RNCOS report “Semiconductor Industry (2007-2010)” cites DRAM and wireless chip sales to manufacturers of telecom equipment as the chief reason for growth in 2006. Also, capital goods, i.e. real products or consumer goods that are utilized in the manufacturing of other products but aren’t integrated into new products, have substituted consumer electronics as the primary demand driver for semiconductor in 2006.

The research report also highlights the market related facts and issues like, trends in global semiconductor market with respect to segmentation, market value, capital spending, & future prospects, emerging regions for semiconductor industry, semiconductor equipment industry overview with statistical data, industry analysis covering factors such as cost analysis, success factors, opportunities, and challenges.
