Microprocessor sales in 2020 reach 87.7 billion U.S. dollars

The latest briefing by IC Insights, a market research organization, shows that the global outbreak of the new crown epidemic has led to a substantial increase in the demand for telecommuting, which has promoted the sales of notebooks, tablets and large-screen smartphones. At the same time, it has benefited from the growth in demand for data centers and systems. And the core component microprocessor (MPU) sales in the application achieved a double-digit growth of 12%, reaching 87.7 billion U.S. dollars, a record high.

In December 2020, global semiconductor sales were 39.2 billion U.S. dollars, an increase of 8.3% from the total sales in December 2019, and a decrease of 2.0% from the total sales in November 2020. Sales in the fourth quarter were 117.5 billion U.S. dollars, which was 8.3% higher than the total sales in the fourth quarter of 2019. , Which is 3.5% higher than the total revenue in the third quarter of 2020.

Sales of micro ICs, including microprocessors, will increase by 4.8% in 2020 to US$69.6 billion. The sales of all non-memory products will increase by 5.2% in total in 2020, and the total sales of this category hit a record high.

The agency predicts that the MPU market will grow by 9% in 2021, with sales expected to reach 95.5 billion U.S. dollars.

From the perspective of the MPU market segment, in recent years, embedded microprocessors have grown the fastest. From 2015 to 2020, sales have increased by 115%, computer microprocessors have increased by 20% over the same period, and mobile phone application processors have the slowest growth rate. , The growth of only 15% in the past 5 years shows that smart phones have bid farewell to rapid growth and become a very mature market.

SIA CEO John Neuffer (JohnNeuffer) in a statement released the above figures, called on the US government to provide incentives for domestic chip production.
