2013 to be a good year, says Cowan
The Cowan semiconductor forecast model is expecting some good numbers for 2013 with Q1 estimated worldwide sales of $74bn, up 6.2% y-o-y and Q2v sales of $76bn up 4.5% y-o-y for an H1 result of $150bn which would be 5.3% up y-o-y.
For the current year, Mike Cowan has factored July’s $24bn sales into the mix
x and come up with a forecast of $298bn for the year, a slight drop on last year.
Sales to the end of July were $167bn compared to $174bn for the same period last year, while Cowan thinks H2 will come in at $155bn compared to H1’s $143bn.
