Applied Materials has brought economies of scale to the flat panel display. The equipment we build uses scale to help make flat panel TVs more than 20 percent larger per year without an increase in price. Applied Materials achieves this goal by developing the most innovative technologies in the industry and helping our customers minimize costs, such as material use and defects.
For the past 17 years, Applied Materials equipment has made display technology thinner, bigger and brighter, while decreasing or keeping constant costs. Technologies Applied Materials is building today will bring to life a future we once imagined was science fiction – paper-thin electronic screens, lighting that lasts for decades and billboard size screens that use only one piece of glass.
