North American Semiconductor Equipment Industry Posts May 2014 Book-to-Bill Ratio of 1.00

AN JOSE, Calif. — June 19, 2014 — North America-based manufacturers of semiconductor equipment posted $1.41 billion in orders worldwide in May 2014 (three-month average basis) and a book-to-bill ratio of 1.00, according to the May EMDS Book-to-Bill Report published today by SEMI.   A book-to-bill of 1.00 means that $100 worth of orders were received for every $100 of product billed for the month.

The three-month average of worldwide bookings in May 2014 was $1.41 billion. The bookings figure is 2.4 percent lower than the final April 2014 level of $1.44 billion, and is 6.6 percent higher than the May 2013 order level of $1.32 billion.

The three-month average of worldwide billings in May 2014 was $1.41 billion. The billings figure is 0.3   percent higher than the final April 2014 level of $1.40 billion, and is 15.1 percent higher than the May 2013 billings level of $1.22 billion.

“Semiconductor equipment bookings and billings maintain a consistent pace approaching the end of the second quarter,” said Denny McGuirk, president and CEO of SEMI.  “Like other trends reported across the industry, semiconductor process equipment sales demonstrate positive year-over-year performance.”

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.
