SEMI Reports 2013 Global Semiconductor Equipment Sales of $31.6 Billion

SAN JOSE, Calif. — March 11, 2014 — SEMI, the global industry association for companies that supply manufacturing technology and materials to the world’s chip makers, today reported that worldwide sales of semiconductor manufacturing equipment totaled $31.58 billion in 2013, representing a year-over-year decrease of 14 percent. The data is available in the Worldwide Semiconductor Equipment Market Statistics (SEMS) Report, now available from SEMI.

Compiled from data submitted by members of SEMI and the Semiconductor Equipment Association of Japan (SEAJ), the Worldwide SEMS Report is a summary of the monthly billings and bookings figures for the global semiconductor equipment industry. The report, which includes data for seven major semiconductor producing regions and 24 product categories, shows worldwide billings totaled $31.58 billion in 2013, compared to $36.93 billion in sales posted in 2012. Categories cover wafer processing, assembly and packaging, test, and other front-end equipment. Other front-end includes mask/reticle manufacturing, wafer manufacturing, and fab facilities equipment.

Spending rates declined for all the regions tracked in the WWSEMS report, except for China and Taiwan. For the second year in a row Taiwan remained the region with the highest amount of spending with $10.57 billion in equipment sales. The North American market surpassed South Korea to claim the second place with $5.26 billion in sales; South Korea fell to the third position with a regional decrease of 41 percent.

The global other front end equipment segment decreased 34 percent; the assembly and packaging segment decreased 26 percent;  total test equipment sales decreased 24 percent; and the wafer processing equipment market segment decreased 11 percent.
