Semiconductor revenue up 22% to USD 419.7 bln in 2017

Friday 5 January 2018 | 11:02 CET | News
Worldwide semiconductor revenue rose 22.2 percent to USD 419.7 billion in 2017, according to preliminary results by Gartner. Undersupply helped drive 64 percent revenue growth in the memory market, which accounted for 31 percent of total semiconductor revenue in 2017. The key driver behind the booming memory revenue was higher prices due to a supply shortage. NAND flash prices increased year over year for the first time ever, up 17 percent, while DRAM prices rose 44 percent.
