Rising adoption of 3D architectures are driving the performance of its non-memory segments. Advanced packaging technology inflections are tailwinds. Also, both etch and deposition technologies are expected to expand the company’s addressable market. Lam Research is benefiting from its transition to new data-enabled economy.
