ABSTRACT
The article reports on the strong sales of consumer electronics despite its rocky economic environment in the U.S. A $21.8 billion of semiconductors in May 2007 is estimated by the Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) with 7.5% up on the $20.3 billion making the month as historically the strongest for semiconductor sales. In June, however, the SIA has lowered its estimate for full-year growth from 7.7% to 4.3%.
