Chemical vapor deposition （CVD） is an important technology producing high purity and density tungsten parts and coatings. The advances of tungsten material production applying CVD were discussed from the aspects of material features and products classification of CVD-W. The applications of CVD-W to national defense, nuclear fusion and X-Ray target were listed. The progress status of CVD-W was discussed. And the development directions of CVD-W in future were put forward.
