SEMI Data Collection Programs

How to Get Involved in SEMI Data Collection Programs

Your company can easily join SEMI confidential data collection programs. This will require a small time commitment on a monthly or quarterly basis, depending on the frequency of your program. Each program is based on direct input from over 80 percent of the industry, and most programs are global with regional breakdowns.

PV Equipment Bookings and Billings Market Statistics Program

To provide its members and industry constituents with access to worldwide PV equipment market intelligence, SEMI, in collaboration with the German Engineering Federation (VDMA), launched the worldwide PV equipment bookings and billings market statistics program. The program collects and reports quarterly worldwide PV equipment bookings and billings data from PV equipment suppliers. It is the industry’s only book-to-bill report based on direct inputs from PV equipment manufacturers from around the world.
