Today semiconductor industry serves as driver, enabler and indicator of technological progress. The semiconductors have entirely changed the outlook of the world we live in today.

In other words we can say that semiconductors are being used for entire range of industries like automotive, communications infrastructure to computer industries and many more.

Semiconductor equipment plays a vital role in the manufacturing of integrated devices (ICs). Worldwide semiconductor equipment market is expected to cross US$ 35 Billion by 2013.
