    2019 WFE Market Landscape
    2019 brought mixed results in WFE demand as the key demand drivers shifted from Memory to Foundry/Logic. As a result, EUV Lithography, ALD, Epitaxy, and PVD equipment were in high demand. On the other side, Etch and CVD demand slowed as 3DNAND and DRAM investment declined. Mid-tier companies ASMI and Nikon led the growth in 2019 reaching 32% and 118% growth, respectively. Other top companies delivering sales growth were KLA, Hitachi High-Tech, and Daifuku.
