North America-based manufacturers of semiconductor equipment posted $2.60 billion in billings worldwide in July 2020 (three-month average basis), according to the July Equipment Market Data Subscription (EMDS) Billings Report published today by SEMI. The billings figure is 11.8 percent higher than the final June 2020 level of $2.32 billion, and is 27.6 percent higher than the July 2019 billings level of $2.03 billion.
“The second half of 2020 has started strong with double-digit billings growth for North America-based semiconductor equipment manufacturers,” said Ajit Manocha, SEMI president and CEO. “The strength reflects the semiconductor industry’s criticality in today’s world and the driving forces in place for long-term industry 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.
