IDC Forecasts Worldwide Semiconductor Revenues to Reach $303 Billion in 2011 and Nearly $380 Billion in 2015

IDC News Release, 12/9/10

International Data Corporation (IDC) forecasts worldwide semiconductor revenues will grow 9% year over year in 2011 and will achieve a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6% for the 2010-2015 forecast period. This follows the strong recovery in 2010, which produced growth of 23% over 2009 according to the latest version of IDC’s Semiconductor Application Forecaster (SAF).

The Computing industry segment represents about 40% of all semiconductor revenues and will show year-over-year (2011) and CAGR (2010-2015) growth rates of 7% and 6%, respectively, after registering revenues of $113 billion in 2010. The launch of Sandybridge and Fusion APU in 2011, by Intel and AMD respectively, should help to accelerate the PC replacement cycle and drive semiconductor demand into 2012.
