  • Revenue in the semiconductor segment fell 14% as global semiconductor demand remained soft while revenue in the others segment plunged 48% mainly due to the weaker material and tooling distribution business being affected by the general business slowdown. The decline in semiconductor revenue was due to a 29% drop in component sales (from S$44m in 2Q22 to S$31m in 2Q23) caused mainly by the weaker demand from back-end semiconductor customers.
  • UMS's Semiconductor Integrated System sales continued to do well, increasing 6% from S$32m in 2Q22 to S$34m in 223. All the key geographical markets posted lower sales in 2023, except for Taiwan which reported 2% sales improvement due mainly to higher component spares sales.
