North American Semiconductor Equipment Industry Posts November 2014 Book-to-Bill Ratio of 1.02

SAN JOSE, Calif. — December 18, 2014 — North America-based manufacturers of semiconductor equipment posted $1.22 billion in orders worldwide in November 2014 (three-month average basis) and a book-to-bill ratio of 1.02, according to the November EMDS Book-to-Bill Report published today by  SEMI.   A book-to-bill of 1.02 means that $102 worth of orders were received for every $100 of product billed for the month.

The three-month average of worldwide bookings in November 2014 was $1.22 billion. The bookings figure is 10.4 percent higher than the final October 2014 level of $1.10 billion, and is 1.7 percent lower than the November 2013 order level of $1.24 billion.

The three-month average of worldwide billings in November 2014 was $1.19 billion. The billings figure is 0.5 percent higher than the final October 2014 level of $1.18 billion, and is 6.8 percent higher than the November 2013 billings level of $1.11 billion.

“With the rise in bookings, the book-to-bill ratio climbed above parity in November,” said SEMI president and CEO Denny McGuirk. “2014 has been a solid growth year for the semiconductor equipment market and we expect the foundry and memory sector to continue leading investments in 2015.”

The SEMI book-to-bill is a ratio of three-month moving averages of worldwide bookings and billings for North American-based semiconductor equipment manufacturers. Billings and bookings figures are in millions of U.S. dollars.
