North America-based manufacturers of semiconductor equipment posted $3.04 billion in billings worldwide in January 2021 (three-month average basis), the first time monthly billings have reached $3 billion, according to the January Equipment Market Data Subscription (EMDS) Billings Report published today by SEMI. The billings figure is 13.4 percent higher than the final December 2020 billings of $2.68 billion and is 29.9 percent higher than the January 2020 billings level of $2.34 billion.
“January billings of North America-based semiconductor equipment manufacturers marked a historic monthly high for the industry and a great start to the year,” said Ajit Manocha, SEMI president and CEO. “The acceleration of digital transformation is fueling strong, durable demand for semiconductor equipment.”
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.
