Tungsten hexafluoride is a special electronic gas and a key material for large-scale integrated circuits. It is commonly used to form tungsten films. The dominant application of it is in the semiconductor industry, where it is widely used for depositing tungsten metal in a chemical vapor deposition process.

To meet the needs of the domestic integrated circuit industry, China has deployed sets of new large tungsten hexafluoride production bases in areas such as Hebei and Chongqing. Hebei Province's "Implementation Opinions on Accelerating the Development of the Integrated Circuit Industry" proposes that by 2020, the main business income of the integrated circuit industry in the Province will grow at an average annual rate of more than 30%, and basic material technologies such as tungsten hexafluoride will continue to keep domestic leading levels.
