North American Semiconductor Equipment Industry Posts July 2015 Book-to-Bill Ratio of 1.02

SAN JOSE, Calif. — August 20, 2015 — North America-based manufacturers of semiconductor equipment posted $1.59 billion in orders worldwide in July 2015 (three-month average basis) and a book-to-bill ratio of 1.02, according to the July 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.

SEMI reports that the three-month average of worldwide bookings in July 2015 was $1.59 billion. The bookings figure is 5.1 percent higher than the final June 2015 level of $1.52 billion, and is 12.5 percent higher than the July 2014 order level of $1.42 billion.

The three-month average of worldwide billings in July 2015 was $1.56 billion. The billings figure is 0.3 percent higher than the final June 2015 level of $1.55 billion, and is 18.2 percent higher than the July 2014 billings level of $1.32 billion.

"Year-to-date, the bookings and billings reported in the SEMI North American equipment book-to-bill report indicate a solid year for the industry," said SEMI president and CEO Denny McGuirk. “The outlook for the remainder of the year is somewhat clouded, but we see investments in 3D NAND and advanced packaging as drivers."

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.
