    North American Semiconductor Equipment Industry Posts March 2020 Billings

    MILPITAS, Calif. — April 23, 2020 — North America-based manufacturers of semiconductor equipment posted $2.21 billion in billings worldwide in March 2020 (three-month average basis), according to the March Equipment Market Data Subscription (EMDS) Billings Report published today by SEMI. The billings figure is 6.8 percent lower than the final February 2020 level of $2.37 billion, and is 20.1 percent higher than the March 2019 billings level of $1.84 billion.

    “While March monthly billings of North America-based semiconductor equipment manufacturers are starting to reflect a challenging market environment, the year-over-year increase indicates companies across the semiconductor manufacturing supply chain thus far are effectively maintaining continuous operations despite COVID-19 headwinds,” said Ajit Manocha, SEMI president and CEO.
