North American Semiconductor Equipment Industry Posts June 2019 Billings
MILPITAS, Calif. — North America-based manufacturers of semiconductor equipment posted $2.01 billion in billings worldwide in June 2019 (three-month average basis), according to the June Equipment Market Data Subscription (EMDS) Billings Report published by SEMI. The billings figure is 2.5 percent lower than the final May 2019 level of $2.07 billion, and is 19 percent lower than the June 2018 billings level of $2.48 billion.
“June billings of North American equipment manufacturers fell nearly three percent when compared to the prior month,” said Ajit Manocha, president and CEO of SEMI. “While billings weakened for the most recent month, total global billings of suppliers based in North America for the most recent quarter are stronger than their first-quarter 2019 billings.”
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.
|May 2019 (final)||$2,065.2||-23.6%|
|June 2019 (prelim)||$2,012.7||-19.0%|
SEMI publishes a monthly North American Billings report and issues the Worldwide Semiconductor Equipment Market Statistics (WWSEMS) report in collaboration with the Semiconductor Equipment Association of Japan (SEAJ). The WWSEMS report currently reports billings by 24 equipment segments and by seven end market regions. SEMI also has a long history of tracking semiconductor industry fab investments in detail on a company-by-company and fab-by-fab basis in its World Fab Forecast and SEMI FabView databases. These powerful tools provide access to spending forecasts, capacity ramp, technology transitions, and other information for over 1,000 fabs worldwide.
