Global Focused Ion Beam Market: Overview
The factors which are primarily driving the growth of global Focused ion beam market are increasing application of focused ion beam systems in sample preparation and nanofabrication. Focused ion beam finds a key application in sample preparation as it involves (TEM) transmission electron microscopy on an ultra-thin specimen which is transparent to electrons. Focused ion beam systems are also commonly used in the semiconductor and manufacturing industries as failure analysis equipment. This equipment is used in order to detect the primary cause of failure and prevent its reoccurrence. In addition, increase in demand for ion lithography is playing a significant role in the growth of the global focused ion beam market. The conjoint effect of all these drivers is therefore set to bolster the growth of the global focused ion beam market during the forecast period from 2016-2024.
Focused ion beam systems have been used extensively for more than two decades, most significantly in sample preparation and nanofabrication. Focused ion beam set up is a scientific instrument which resembles a scanning electron microscope or SEM. FIB systems coupled with SEM are used commonly to prepare samples for transmission electron microscope or TEM. Application of Focused ion beams in nano machining is expected to boost the growth of the global Focused ion beam market in the coming years. Focused ion beam etching equipment has shown high potential for a wide range of innovative applications in the field nanotechnology including imaging and precision micromachining. Furthermore, rapid advances in ion sources are expected to offer new growth opportunities for Focused ion beam systems. At present, several alternative ion sources are being developed for FIB microscopes which offer a large range of available ion currents, beam sizes and energies. However, high price of focused ion beam systems is restricting the wide adoption of the equipment, especially in small and medium-scale industries. Furthermore, lack of penetration in non-semiconductor industries and lack of funding in non-industrial research institutes have negatively impacted the growth of FIB systems market.
