North American semi equipment industry posts December 2018 billings

North America-based manufacturers of semiconductor equipment posted USD 2.11 billion in billings worldwide in December 2018 (three-month average basis), according to SEMI.

The billings figure is 8.5% higher than the final November 2018 level of USD 1.94 billion, and is 12.1% lower than the December 2017 billings level of USD 2.40 billion. “December billings of North American equipment manufacturers ended 2018 on a positive note,” said Ajit Manocha, president and CEO of SEMI. "Spending for logic and foundry offset the decline in memory investments for the month.”
