According to DMASS (Distributors’ and Manufacturers’ Association of Semiconductor Specialists) sales in Q2 grew by 2.6%.

This figure was up to 1.51 Billion Euro compared to Q2/CY12. The first half of 2013 ended with sales of 3 Billion Euro, which represents a slight decrease of 1.4%.

Regionally, in a Q2/Q2 comparison, if it were not for the UK (-4.9%) and especially Germany (-2.8%), the quarter would have turned out even more positively. DMASS reported for Germany total sales of 462 Million Euro and for the UK 122 Million Euro. France grew moderately (+4.4% to 117 Million Euro), Italy surprisingly strong (+10.3% to 155 Million Euro), Nordic went up by 11.2% to 154 Million Euro (despite a massive production shift out of the region) and Eastern Europe further strengthened its critical mass with 167 Million Euro (+11%).

Georg Steinberger: “Reading the newspaper, you would expect the opposite, but the fact is that Germany still shows signs of weakness in semiconductor demand and Italy firmly secures its second position as a single market within Europe.”
At the product detail level, all major segments except Programmable Logic and Discretes were positive in Q2/CY13. Programmable Logic declined by 13.6% to 125 Million Euro, Discretes by 5.5% to 77 Million Euro. Other Logic (14.4% to 85 Million Euro) and Sensors (10.7% to 35 Million Euro) grew double-digit, the rest ended between 1.9% and 6.1%. The major segments Analogue, MOS Micro and Opto showed above average recovery, Analogue to 428 Million Euro (+3.6%), MOS Micro to 315 Million Euro (6.1%) and Opto to 142 Million Euro (6.1%).
