Semiconductor manufacturing
  • Pininvest Analysis

Taking a long view, semiconductor equipment manufacturing is at commanding heights, with a very select club of companies capable of the most complex technological feats in R&D and production. Their clients, the chip-makers with the financial – and technical- ability to build the mega-factories for the new generations of chips, are in effect partners in a shared effort 

With tens of billions of dollars at stake, and only very few players on either side, this great game is a technological race in the shadows of geopolitical strategies, protective of national interests.

Manufacturing has become a vastly concentrated affair with 10 firms securing over 90% of worldwide sales and the top 5 manufacturers – Applied Materials AMAT/NASDAQ (US), LAM Research  LRCX/NASDAQ (US), Tokyo Electron TOELY/OTC (Japan), ASML ASML/NASDAQ (Netherlands) and KLA Tencor KLAC/NASDAQ (US)  – responsible for more than 2/3 of world turnover 

Our theme includes well-established specialized firms manufacturing the processing systems and the metrology/inspection equipment, both integral part of the semiconductor production cycle
