The World Semiconductor Trade Statistics (WSTS) is a non-profit organization that collects shipments data directly from its 42 semiconductor company members, and provides market analysis and reports back to its membership. Integrated device manufacturers (IDM) and fabless semiconductor companies who design and market semiconductors, either discrete or integrated circuits, are eligible for membership with WSTS. Semiconductor contract manufacturers, such as a foundry, may obtain a subscription for reports directly with WSTS. Non-semiconductor manufacturers can subscribe for reports through direct subscription with one of their 5 regional distribution channels provided by regional semiconductor industry associations. For example, the Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA), based in the United States, is the distribution channel for the Americas. The SIA also utilizes statistics provided by WSTS in some of their public reports and news releases.
