BE Semiconductor's Q1 orders more than double amid surging demand

  • The group, which makes equipment for chipmakers, said in a statement it had booked record orders of 327 million euros ($386.12 million) for the quarter, up 108% from the previous quarter and 176% from the same quarter of 2020.
  • The shortage comes as carmakers, which shut plants during the COVID-19 pandemic last year, compete against the sprawling consumer electronics industry for chip supplies.
