The Semiconductor Equipment Association of Japan (SEAJ) recently reported that the ratio of bookings to billings by Japanese semiconductor equipment manufacturers slipped significantly last month but still maintained a robust book-to-bill ratio of 1.30. The ratio in June was 1.52.

The three-month average of worldwide bookings by Japanese equipment makers in July was about Rs.6,919.56 crore ($1.49 billion), down 1.4 per cent from Rs.7,012.44 crore ($1.51 billion) in July, SEAJ said, but up 53.2 per cent from around Rs.4,520.47 crore ($974.3 million) in July 2005.

A book-to-bill ratio of 1.30 means that Rs.6,037.20 ($130) worth of equipment orders were booked for every Rs.4,644 ($100) of product shipped. The SEAJ book-to-bill is a ratio of three-month moving average bookings to three-month moving average billings for the Japanese semiconductor equipment industry.
