Source: SEMIMakers of semiconductor equipment had $1.37 billion in orders worldwide in March—based on a three-month average basis—and a book-to-bill ratio of 1.10. A book-to-bill of 1.10 means that $110 worth of orders were received for every $100 of product billed for the month.

The booking figure for the preliminary numbers in March was 4.6% higher than the final total from February and 5.9% higher than the March 2014 order level, SEMI says.

Meanwhile, billings in March were $1.25 billion, down 2.4% from February but up 1.9% compared to March of last year, SEMI says.
