Second quarter 2020 global billings for semiconductor manufacturing equipment, as per SEMI, had jumped 26 per cent year-over-year

North America-based manufacturers of semiconductor equipment posted $2.65 billion in billings worldwide in August 2020 (three-month average basis), according to the August Equipment Market Data Subscription (EMDS) Billings Report published today by SEMI. The billings figure is three per cent higher than the final July 2020 level of $2.57 billion, and is 32.5 per cent higher than the August 2019 billings level of two billion.

“August billings of North America-based semiconductor equipment manufacturers demonstrate solid performance and strong year-over-year growth. Semiconductor equipment demand remains robust despite supply chain uncertainties and new regulatory constraints,” said Ajit Manocha, SEMI president and CEO.

Second quarter 2020 global billings for semiconductor manufacturing equipment, as per SEMI, had jumped 26 per cent year-over-year and eight per cent, to US$16.8 billion, from the first quarter of the year.

North America-based manufacturers of semiconductor equipment had posted $2.60 billion in billings worldwide in July 2020 (three-month average basis). The billings figure was 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.

Manocha, at that time said, “The second half of 2020 has started strong with double-digit billings growth for North America-based semiconductor equipment manufacturers. The strength reflects the semiconductor industry’s criticality in today’s world and the driving forces in place for long-term industry growth.”
