North America-based semiconductor equipment manufacturers posted $3.67 billion in billings worldwide in June 2021 (three-month average basis), according to the June Equipment Market Data Subscription (EMDS) Billings Report published by SEMI. The billings figure is 2.3% higher than final May 2021 billings of $3.59 billion and 58.4% higher than June 2020 billings of $2.32 billion.
“The semiconductor equipment market demonstrated extraordinary growth in the first half of 2021,” said Ajit Manocha, SEMI president and CEO. “We are witnessing a structural shift in the industry marked by higher capital investments as demand for the semiconductors needed to power technologies unleashed by innovation and the digitization of economies continues to grow.”
The SEMI Billings report uses three-month moving averages of worldwide billings for North American-based semiconductor equipment manufacturers. Billings figures are in millions of U.S. dollars.
