    Industry Report - Industry Key Buyers Chapter

    A medium level of market share concentration characterizes the Semiconductor Machinery Manufacturing industry. IBISWorld estimates that the top four industry players account for 56.4% of industry revenue in 2017. Many firms exited the industry during the period, contributing to the market concentration of industry activity. The industry's two largest companies, Applied Materials and Lam Research, have extensive manufacturing capability and a global clientele, making it difficult for companies to challenge their market share. During the five years to 2017, the number of industry enterprises declined at an annualized rate of 0.9% to 159. Further declines are expected over the next five years as major companies acquire smaller competitors and other firms move operations abroad.
