China: One of Applied Materials’ Key Revenue Drivers

Applied Materials (AMAT) supplies SME (semiconductor manufacturing equipment) to chip makers all over the world. As the world’s semiconductor manufacturing is concentrated in the APAC (Asia-Pacific) region, it’s the largest market for AMAT and its peers Lam Research (LRCX) and KLA-Tencor (KLAC). South Korea (EWY) is their largest market, providing 30% of their revenues.
