SEMI: billings continues to decline

North America-based manufacturers of semiconductor equipment posted USD 1.86 billion in billings worldwide in February 2019 (three-month average basis), according to SEMI.

The billings figure is 1.7% lower than the final January 2019 level of USD 1.90 billion, and is 23.0% lower than the February 2018 billings level of USD 2.41 billion. “Global billings of North American equipment suppliers continued a decline that began in November 2018,” said Terry Tsao, chief marketing officer at SEMI. “Despite lower levels of investment, monthly billings for the year remain above 2016 levels.”
