Semi sales set for 2010 record.

LONDON -- September sales of semiconductors rose 20% worldwide sequentially to $24 billion in the third quarter. Research firm Future Horizons (futurehorizons.com) not only upped its 2009 forecast to a 10% drop, from an earlier estimate of -14%, but it also said 2010 should blow the doors off previous sales records.

It was the second straight quarter of sequential growth. Future Horizons forecasts fourth-quarter growth of 5 to 7% and 2009 sales of $220 billion to $225 billion.

The firm forecasts 2010 growth of 22% year-over-year, to a record $272 billion, followed by additional growth in 2011.
