Dataquest: Worldwide Semiconductor Revenue up 31 Percent in 2000

Preliminary reports from Dataquest Inc. indicate that the worldwide semiconductor market reached $222.1 billion in revenue in 2000. Overall, revenue increased 31 percent compared to 1999, but there still remains concern due to the slowdown that the market experienced at the end of the year.

Dell retained the number one position with a 13.4 percent market share and $29.75 million in revenue, but there was some shake-up at the top. With year-to-year growth of 47.2 percent, Toshiba overtook NEC for the number two spot. NEC fell one spot to third overall, with 11.081 million in revenue, a 20.3 percent revenue increase from 1999. The top 10 was rounded out by Samsung, Texas Instruments, Motorola, STMicroelectronics, Hitachi, Hynudai, and Infineon Technologies.

From a regional perspective, the Americas region was number one, with revenues of $71.7 billion in 2000, an increase of 29 percent. The number two region was Asia/Pacific, followed by Japan at number three and Europe at number four.

Despite the slowdown in sales during the fourth quarter, the Dataquest report says “we see no reason to believe that this current weakening is anything lese other than an inventory correction.” – Jim Martin
