KUALA LUMPUR (Sept 21): North America-based manufacturers of semiconductor equipment posted US$3.65 billion in billings worldwide in August 2021 (three-month average basis), said the US-based Semiconductor Equipment & Materials International (SEMI).
In its August Equipment Market Data Subscription (EMDS) Billings Report published yesterday, SEMI said the billings figure is 5.4% lower than final July 2021 billings of US$3.86 billion and 37.6% higher than August 2020 billings of US$2.65 billion.
SEMI president and CEO Ajit Manocha said after an extraordinary eight-month run of record-breaking results, billings of North America-based semiconductor equipment manufacturers expectedly softened in August compared to July.
“Nonetheless, billings continue to reflect strong demand for semiconductor equipment and solid year-over-year growth,” he said.
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 US dollars.
