North American Semiconductor Equipment Industry Posts January 2016 Book-to-Bill Ratio of 1.08

SAN JOSE, Calif. — February 23, 2016 — North America-based manufacturers of semiconductor equipment posted $1.32 billion in orders worldwide in January 2016 (three-month average basis) and a book-to-bill ratio of 1.08, according to the January EMDS Book-to-Bill Report published today by  SEMI.  A book-to-bill of 1.08 means that $108 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 January 2016 was $1.32 billion. The bookings figure is 1.4 percent lower than the final December 2015 level of $1.34 billion, and is 0.1 percent lower than the January 2015 order level of $1.33 billion.

The three-month average of worldwide billings in January 2016 was $1.23 billion. The billings figure is 8.8 percent lower than the final December 2015 level of $1.35 billion, and is 3.7 percent lower than the January 2015 billings level of $1.28 billion.

"Recent semiconductor order activity is on par with the figures reported one year ago," said Denny McGuirk, president and CEO of SEMI.  “While uncertainty clouds the near-term economic outlook, we currently expect 2016 capex to remain in range of 2015 spending."

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.
