North America-based manufacturers of semiconductor equipment posted $2.00 billion in billings worldwide in August 2019 (three-month average basis), according to the August Equipment Market Data Subscription (EMDS) Billings Report published today by SEMI. The billings figure is 1.4 percent lower than the final July 2019 level of $2.03 billion, and is 10.5 percent lower than the August 2018 billings level of $2.23 billion.
“August billings of North American equipment manufacturers declined one percent relative to July levels,” said Ajit Manocha, president and CEO of SEMI. “However, even though the industry is facing headwinds, monthly billings levels have remained above $2 billion for the past four months.”
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.

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.
