Similarly, we have strong sales of advanced CapEx-driven products, which is our family of new 300 mm FOSB, which is designed to provide the industry's most comprehensive protection against contamination within the wafer handling environment at 32 nanometers and below. In fact, 70% of the FOSB we sold in the fourth quarter were models that are less than 1 year old. In contrast, sales of FOSB handling components used to outfit fab infrastructure were soft during the quarter.Looking at our business by market. Fourth quarter trends were also not uniform. Our semiconductor-related sales representing 73% of total declined to 3% from the third quarter. In our markets outside SEMI, sales declined 10% reflecting the slowdown of the TFT/LCD and LED markets as well as lower daily storage shipment due to the flooding in Thailand. Nonetheless, we were encouraged by progress in some emerging markets such as Solar, where our sales doubled in 2011 and hit record levels during the year, in which the Solar industry was confronted by huge overcapacity and substantial price decline.
