Sample of VLSI Release, Electronics Outlook Worldwide electronics sales are now expected to fall nearly 5% in 2020, down from our previous forecast of +4%. The downgrade is a result of the COVID-19 pandemic which is having an adverse impact on the electronics supply chain and end-demand. The world GDP (in terms of purchasing power parity) is expected to decelerate to 1% from 5% in 2019. Given the strong correlation between worldwide GDP and electronics, the drop in electronics sales should come as no surprise.

With sales falling more than 8% sequentially in Q1, equipment market is primed for a strong bounce back in Q2. semiconductor equipment industry sales report is expected to increase sequentially by mid-single digits in Q2 as additional revenue is recognized from shipments in Q1 and also from strong demand from China. This is a big sigh of relief for the equipment market in Q2 especially when compared to our negative forecast for Q2.
