SEMI Reports 2014 Global Semiconductor Equipment Sales of $37.5 Billion

SAN JOSE, Calif. — March 16, 2015 — 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 $37.50 billion in 2014, representing a year-over-year increase of 18 percent. 2014 total equipment bookings were 8 percent higher than in 2013. The data are available in the Worldwide Semiconductor Equipment Market Statistics (WWSEMS) 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 $37.50 billion in 2014, compared to $31.79 billion in sales posted in 2013. 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 increased for all the regions tracked in the WWSEMS report, except for Taiwan. Even with the annual decrease, Taiwan remained the largest market for new semiconductor equipment for the third year in a row with $9.41 billion in equipment sales. The North American market held onto the second place with $8.16 billion in sales; South Korea maintained its third position with total sales of $6.84 billion. China moved up in the rankings, surpassing Japan with $4.37 billion in sales.

The global assembly and packaging segment increased 33 percent; total test equipment sales increased 31 percent; other front end equipment segment increased 15 percent; and the wafer processing equipment market segment increased 15 percent.
