North American Semiconductor Equipment Industry Posts March 2014 Book-to-Bill Ratio of 1.06

SAN JOSE, Calif. — April 21, 2014 — North America-based manufacturers of semiconductor equipment posted $1.28 billion in orders worldwide in March 2014 (three-month average basis) and a book-to-bill ratio of 1.06, according to the March EMDS Book-to-Bill Report published today by SEMI.   A book-to-bill of 1.06 means that $106 worth of orders were received for every $100 of product billed for the month.

According to SEMI, the three-month average of worldwide bookings in March 2014 was $1.28 billion. The bookings figure is 1.2 percent lower than the final February 2014 level of $1.30 billion, and is 16.1 percent higher than the March 2013 order level of $1.10 billion.

The three-month average of worldwide billings in March 2014 was $1.21 billion. The billings figure is 5.9  percent lower than the final February 2014 level of $1.29 billion, and is 22.3 percent higher than the March 2013 billings level of $991.0 million.

“Bookings levels for North American semiconductor equipment have remained consistent over the last few reports,” said Denny McGuirk, president and CEO of SEMI.  "We look to the months ahead for signs of any inflection.”

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.
