Japan. In the case of the United States. There are about 50 small and medium sized target manufacturers and distributors, the largest of which employs about hundreds of people. However, in order to be closer to users, in order to provide better after-sales service, the world's major target manufacturers usually set up branch offices in the customer's location. In recent times, some countries and regions in Asia, such as Taiwan. South Korea and Singapore have built more and more factories that manufacture thin film components or products, such as IC, LCD and CD-ROM manufacturing.
This is a very important emerging market for target manufacturers. China's target industry development is also increasing, and constantly expand their size and production technology, the domestic first-line manufacturing target brand has reached the top of the foreign technology. In 2010, Mitsubishi Corporation of Japan set up a production base of CD-ROM roost target in Taiwan area of China, which can meet the needs of 50% of Taiwan's target materials.

Target material is a kind of special electronic material with high added value, mainly used in the fields of microelectronics, display, memory and optical coating, which is used for sputtering various thin film materials for cutting-edge technology. The BCC report shows that the global industry used 2.88 kilograms of target materials in 1999. Converted to an area, the 363 million-square-metre film was sputtered. In 1999, the global target of 37400 units was used to calculate the target materials. It is pointed out here that with the application industry, the shape and size of the target material is also different, its diameter from 15G m to 3m, and the above statistics are the results of the average.
