Delaware’s STEM-based industries are among the strongest in the nation

While technological innovation occurs in each of Delaware’s key industries, our tech advances span a variety of end use markets, including pharmaceuticals, industrial and agricultural chemicals, medical devices, computer services and more.

Today, Delaware is particularly known for its global leadership in chemical innovation, thanks to our track record of successful Delaware chemical companies such as DUPONT, which has operated in the First State for more than 200 years. In addition, science and technology companies find value in Delaware’s successful research and development environment, which is supported by our collaborative universities, superior research organizations and R&D tax credits available at both the state and federal level.

As a result, Delaware has generated one of the world’s largest talent pools of science and technology expertise, all within easy commuting distance of Wilmington.
