This article lists the top 15 largest equipment semiconductor companies by sales leaders since 2006.
An IC equipment supplier's revenue is classified as sales of systems used to manufacture semiconductors, thin-film heads, MEMs, and integrated circuits, as well as service, support, and retrofitted systems (flat panel displays are not included).
(1) Agilent Technologies spun off their semiconductor test business to Verigy in June 2006. Verigy’s total revenues for 2006 also included part of semiconductor testing from Agilent Technologies for the first half of 2006.
In addition to the market leaders listed above, there is a large market for used or secondary semiconductor equipment. A number of companies provide secondary semiconductor equipment and/or refurbish semiconductor tools. For example, RED Equipment ($50M+ sales in 2011) provides secondary semiconductor equipment, parts and services including equipment remarketing, de-installation, relocation, refurbishment, and installation. Whereas other companies provide some of these services or services for particular tool sets, RED Equipment is unique in that it works on a turnkey 'project process', providing the full range of services for virtually all 200mm tool sets.
