North American Semiconductor Equipment Industry Posts August Billings

North America-based semiconductor equipment manufacturers posted $3.65 billion in billings worldwide in August 2021 (three-month average basis), according to the August Equipment Market Data Subscription (EMDS) Billings Report published today by SEMI. The billings figure is 5.4% lower than final July 2021 billings of $3.86 billion and 37.6% higher than August 2020 billings of $2.65 billion.

SEMI logo“After an extraordinary eight-month run of record-breaking results, billings of North America-based semiconductor equipment manufacturers expectedly softened in August compared to July,” said Ajit Manocha, SEMI president and CEO. “Nonetheless, billings continue to reflect strong demand for semiconductor equipment and solid year-over-year growth.”

The SEMI Billings report uses three-month moving averages of worldwide billings for North American-based semiconductor equipment manufacturers. Billings figures are in millions of U.S. dollars.
