About Applied Materials Inc.
Applied Materials, Inc. provides manufacturing equipment, services, and software to the global semiconductor, flat panel display, solar photovoltaic (PV), and related industries. The company's customers include manufacturers of semiconductor wafers and chips, flat panel liquid crystal displays (LCDs), solar PV cells and modules, and other electronic devices.
The company operates in four segments: Silicon Systems Group; Applied Global Services; Display; and Energy and Environmental Solutions.
SILICON SYSTEMS GROUP SEGMENT
The Silicon Systems Group segment develops, manufactures, and sells a range of manufacturing equipment used to fabricate semiconductor chips, also referred to as integrated circuits (ICs). The chips are built on a silicon wafer base and include various circuit components, such as transistors and other devices, that are connected by multiple layers of wiring (interconnects). The company offers systems that perform its primary processes used in chip fabrication, including atomic layer deposition (ALD), chemical vapor deposition (CVD), physical vapor deposition (PVD), electrochemical deposition (ECD) etch, rapid thermal processing (RTP), chemical mechanical planarization (CMP), wet cleaning, and wafer metrology and inspection, as well as systems that etch, measure, and inspect circuit patterns on masks used in the photolithography process. Its semiconductor manufacturing systems are used by integrated device manufacturers and foundries to build and package memory, logic, and other types of chips. The company supplies systems for manufacturing copper-based chips, including equipment for depositing, etching, and planarizing copper interconnect layers. It provides systems for depositing low k dielectric films. It has a portfolio of characterized processes for building these high-k/metal gates. These solutions include an integrated dielectric gate stack tool that combines four critical processes in a single system, a portfolio of metallization technologies using ALD and PVD, and a high temperature etch system.
The company has acquired Semitool, Inc., a supplier of ECD and wafer surface preparation equipment used by chip packaging companies. It sells majority of its single-wafer, multi-chamber systems on four basic platforms: the Centura, the Endura, the Producer, and the Vantage. These platforms support ALD, CVD, PVD, etch and RTP technologies. The company offers a range of 300mm systems. It also offers earlier-generation 200mm systems, as well as products and services to support its systems. Its portfolio of products and their associated process technology areas consist of:
Deposition is a fundamental step in fabricating a chip. The company provides equipment to perform four types of deposition: ALD, CVD, ECD, and PVD. In addition, its RTP systems can be used to perform certain types of dielectric deposition.
Atomic Layer Deposition
ALD is an advanced technology in which atoms are deposited one layer at a time to build chip structures. This technology enables customers to fabricate thin films of either conducting or insulating material with uniform coverage in sub-nanometer sized structures. The company offers ALD chambers for depositing tungsten and high-k/metal gate films. In 2010, it introduced its Applied Endura iLB PVD/ALD system, an advancement in ALD technology that enables customers to shrink the contact structures to increase signal speeds in 22nm and beyond logic and memory devices.
Chemical Vapor Deposition
CVD is used to deposit dielectric and metal films on a wafer. Films deposited by CVD may be silicon oxide, single-crystal epitaxial silicon, amorphous silicon, silicon nitride, dielectric anti-reflective coatings, low k dielectric, aluminum, titanium, titanium nitride, polysilicon, tungsten, refractory metals or silicides. The company offers the following CVD products and technologies:
The Applied Producer CVD platform This platform features Twin-Chamber modules that have two single-wafer process chambers per unit. Up to three Twin-Chamber modules can be mounted on each Producer platform, giving it a simultaneous processing capacity of six

Enhanced SWOT Analysis
Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:
- How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
- How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?
Upon answering these questions a company can develop a Project Plan to improve its business performance.
PESTEL (also termed as STEP, PESTLE, STEEP, STEEPLE, STEEPLED, etc.) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.
Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.
Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:
- Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
- Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
- Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations;
- Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
- Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
- Legal – What laws and legislations will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?
Porter Five Forces Analysis
The extended Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions followed by sixth question added to the original concept:
- What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
- Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
- What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
- How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
- How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?
- Is there any complementary products, government decisions or public perception that can impact business?
VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:
- Tangible resources
- Intangible resources
- Innovation and Creativity
- Organizational capabilities
The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:
- Costly to Imitate?
- Organized Properly?
