Our strategy

Growth through Innovation

ASM has a legacy of innovation of more than half a century, innovation is at the core of what we do. With our global, networked R&D model, we can collaborate closely and early with our customers, industry partners, and universities. Over the past 20 years, we have accumulated a vast amount of know-how in ALD materials and chemistries. Coupled with decades of experience in developing reactors and processes.

Our main strengths

We are a focused deposition equipment provider in the semiconductor wafer fab equipment (WFE) market. Our principal technologies are ALD and epitaxy, and these play a critical role for our customers in enabling the transition to new device generations. We have helped shape the industry by driving innovation through our collaborative R&D models, successfully delivering advanced new materials, products and processes to our customers. 


From 2016 to 2021, we grew at a rate of one-and-a-half-times faster than the WFE market. Our target is to continue outperforming the market by leveraging our strong position in advanced nodes. 


Our revenue growth in recent years, has helped us to generate healthy cash flow and profitability, and enabled us to further increase investments in R&D, creating value for our stakeholders. 


Latest developments 

In 2022, we added a new product line – silicon carbide (SiC) epitaxy equipment, addressing the growing electrification of the automotive industry. SiC devices provide greater battery life and a longer range for electricity vehicles.
