RENO, NV – Semiconductor sales will jump 17% year-over-year in 2010, almost making up for a drop of 17% this year, says Databeans.
 
The chip market, which fell 3% last year to $248.6 billion, should just top $200 billion this year. However, says the research firm, this slump looks different from 2001, and the market will rebound much more easily this time around.
 
By 2011, IC revenue will reach $269.1 billion, outdoing 2007, says Databeans.
