Core Competencies

Applied Materials is the number one equipment supplier to the semiconductor, liquid crystal display (TFT-LCD) and solar PV industries.We achieved this leadership by focusing on three core competencies:

1. Thin film engineering Thin films are used to create electronic structures as small as 1/2,000th the width of a human hair. These films are formed, deposited, shaped and measured by patented Applied Materials processes and tools that provide near-atomic levels of precision and control.

2. Commercializing sophisticated systems Applied creates sophisticated manufacturing systems for ultra-high volume manufacturing and efficiency that drive down the cost of electronic devices.

3. Global reach Applied has the intellectual capital, financial resources and capability to help customers integrate and manufacture advanced technology around the world.
