The billings figure is 5.9% lower than the final December 2019 level of $2.49 billion and is 22.9% higher than the January 2019 billings level of $1.90 billion.

North America-based manufacturers of semiconductor equipment posted $2.34 billion in billings worldwide in January 2020 (three-month average basis), according to the January Equipment Market Data Subscription (EMDS) Billings Report published by SEMI .

The billings figure is 5.9% lower than the final December 2019 level of $2.49 billion and is 22.9% higher than the January 2019 billings level of $1.90 billion.

"January data marked a solid start to 2020 with strong year-over-year billings growth for North America-based semiconductor equipment manufacturers,” said Ajit Manocha, SEMI president and CEO. "We expect the equipment market to recover from the soft 2019 though growth prospects may need to be tempered with the potential industry impacts of the Coronavirus outbreak.”

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.
