Applied Materials is a strategic partner and an enabler of the semiconductor and solar power manufacturing ecosystems in India. The India entity, which began its operations in 2002 with a liaison office, is today the second largest engineering resource pool for Applied globally. Applied India provides engineering design and support services as well as cutting edge innovation in materials science and engineering to the organization globally through its strong partnership ecosystem.

Applied Materials collaboration with IIT-Bombay laid the foundation for building a semiconductor manufacturing ecosystem in India. Applied, in association with IIT Bombay, established the Applied Materials Nano manufacturing Laboratory (India’s first 200mm semiconductor fabrication facility dedicated to industry-university research) and the Applied Materials Chemistry Laboratory for Energy & Nano-electronics (CLEAN) at the IIT B campus. Together with IIT Bombay, Applied Materials also introduced a Joint Certification Program on Semiconductor Manufacturing Technology for the first time in India.
