“November billings for North American equipment manufacturers increased modestly for the first time in four months,” said Dan Tracy, Senior Director, Industry Research and Statistics, at SEMI. “Year-to-date equipment spending is well on track to set a historical high, and we expect that positive momentum to continue into next year as new fabs in China begin to equip.”

The last six months billings figures are ($bn):

June $2.3; July $2.26; August $2.18; September $2.05; October $2.02; November $2.05
