Currently, SMEE accounts for an 85% share of China's market for advanced packaging optical lithography machines, with its high-brightness LED lithography machines taking the lion's share of the domestic market for high-end equipment.

SMEE staffs a talented, multi-disciplinary team of more than 1,000 professionals with solid backgrounds in the technological fields of nanometer-level motion control, high-precision optical system development and precision photoelectric measurement. During the 10th Five-Year Plan, SMEE undertook the task of developing scanning projection lithography tools for the state's 863 Plan. Under the 11th and 12th Five-Year Plans, the Company was designated by the state to develop high-end scanning projection lithography tools and industrialise advanced packaging lithography tools for National Science and Technology Major Project "02". The Company is among China's top five enterprises in the semiconductor industry, and it is regularly held up as a model enterprise for national intellectual property rights.

In addition, SMEE is a state-level corporate technical centre, a state-level engineering technical centre, one of the first innovative enterprises in Shanghai, and the winner of the 2015 Shanghai Mayor Quality Prize, the highest accolade for industrial quality in Shanghai. As at end-2015, the Company had filed applications for a total of 1,768 patents, including 1,424 (with 704 granted) for Chinese invention patents and 163 (with 42 granted) for foreign invention patents.
