Applied Materials has achieved a dominant position in the semiconductor equipment market by focusing on a global presence, a broad and expanding product line, and exacting customer support -- a strategy initiated in the mid-80s. In the '90s, most of its competitors had recognized that to be competitive with Applied Materials, they too must duplicate these tactics. This report discusses the current strategies of Applied Materials as it competes for world dominance. Strategies of its principal competitors are also analyzed. Markets are analyzed and projected, and market shares for Applied Materials and its competitors are detailed.

Rising complexity and costs for developing and manufacturing IC devices has led to major consolidation of device makers and semiconductor equipment and material suppliers. In Semi Timing, like all semiconductors consolidation via MnA has changed the industry supply chain significantly and raises the stakes for those making the “silicon magic” that is enabling our digital world. The availability of digital devices, the ubiquitous tablets and smart phones, and the exciting possibilities of the Internet of Things (IoT) are forecast to increase growth in ICs again in 2015-16.

A number of technical and operational trends within the semiconductor manufacturing industry are strengthening the need for more effective advanced equipment solutions. These trends include: Development of Smaller Semiconductor Features. The development of smaller features, now as small as 20nm in production and 10nm in R&D, enables semiconductor manufacturers to produce larger numbers of circuits per wafer and to achieve higher circuit performance. Transition to 3D device structures. Foundries are adopting 3D FinFET transistors starting at 14/16 nm technology nodes to get improved performance and use less power in 1x technology nodes. Memory makers will move to 3D NAND and vertical structures for next generation NAND technology. Transition to 3D Integration Technology. Three-dimensional (3D) integration of active devices, directly connecting multiple IC chips, offers many benefits, including power efficiency, performance enhancements, significant product miniaturization, and cost reduction.
