North American Semiconductor Equipment Industry Posts November 2015 Book-to-Bill Ratio of 0.96

SAN JOSE, Calif. — December 17, 2015 — North America-based manufacturers of semiconductor equipment posted $1.24 billion in orders worldwide in November 2015 (three-month average basis) and a book-to-bill ratio of 0.96, according to the November EMDS Book-to-Bill Report published today by SEMI.  A book-to-bill of 0.96 means that $96 worth of orders were received for every $100 of product billed for the month.

SEMI reports that the three-month average of worldwide bookings in November 2015 was $1.24 billion. The bookings figure is 6.7 percent lower than the final October 2015 level of $1.33 billion, and is 1.7 percent higher than the November 2014 order level of $1.22 billion.

The three-month average of worldwide billings in November 2015 was $1.29 billion. The billings figure is 5.2 percent lower than the final October 2015 level of $1.36 billion, and is 8.3 percent higher than the November 2014 billings level of $1.19 billion.

"The semiconductor equipment book-to-bill ratio continued to decelerate in the fourth quarter," said Denny McGuirk, president and CEO of SEMI.  “In light of this recent softening and with the currently strong U.S. dollar, SEMI anticipates that the total equipment market (billings) will be flat to slightly down this year vs. last year as reported in U.S. dollars."

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.
