The global failure analysis equipment market was valued at US$ 4,978.4 million in 2017 and is expected to grow at an 8.3% CAGR from 2018 to 2026. Failure analysis is the process used for systematic and logical investigation of a machine or equipment to analyze and detect the causes and consequences of potential or actual failure.

The basic form of a failure is a component or system that is operating but does not carry out its intended function. When a device or product fails, the root cause should be known. With failure analysis equipment, businesses can get to the cause of any product failure, as it offers information needed to correct and address the issue causing the failure.

Failure analysis equipment is used to eliminate a product's potential or existing problems. This equipment is used to examine the problems and vouch for a helpful action or improvement in order to avoid failures that can occur in the future. This, in turn, reduces maintenance costs and improves efficiency through timely analysis.

Increasing applications and demand for failure analysis equipment for quality inspection are some of the major factors driving the growth prospects of the failure analysis equipment market worldwide. This equipment is widely used in industrial science, material science, bioscience, and electronics to identify possible failures in complex processes, thereby providing a basis for continuous improvement.

Growing awareness amongst people regarding the quality of products and solutions that are being offered to them is enabling organizations to implement failure analysis equipment into their manufacturing facilities. Moreover, industrial and technological advancements are further allowing organizations to cut costs in production by monitoring the nature of products that are to be produced well in advance before the final product is manufactured.

These factors are altogether enabling the adoption of failure analysis equipment for several end-use applications, thereby encouraging the growth of the failure analysis equipment market across the globe.

Market Snapshot

Focused ion beam (FIB) systems dominated the market in 2017.

In 2017, based on equipment type, focused ion beam systems accounted for the largest market share in the global failure analysis equipment market. Focused ion beam systems are increasingly used for failure analysis in extensive fields, ranging from semiconductor devices to ceramics and metallurgy. They are used in the field of material science, both as a microscope and as a specimen preparation tool.

Focused ion beam systems are nearly identical to scanning electron microscopes (SEM), but they use a beam of ions rather than electrons. It can directly modify or mill the specimen surface, and this milling can be controlled with nanometer precision. Owing to its extensive utilization, the segment is expected to grow at a significant rate in the years to come.

In 2017, the largest market share was held by Secondary Ion Mass Spectroscopy (SIMS) technology.

Based technology, secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS) technology led to the failure analysis equipment market in 2017.

Secondary ion mass spectroscopy (SIMS) technology is used in surface and material science for analyzing the composition of thin films and solid surfaces by sputtering the surface of the sample with an intense primary ion beam and then analyzing and collecting the ejected secondary ions. Secondary ion mass spectroscopy is one of the most subtle surface analysis methods, with essential detection limits ranging from parts per million to parts per billion. The ability to identify all elements present at very low concentration levels is driving the growth of this segment.

Asia Pacific will maintain its dominance throughout the forecast period of 2018 to 2026.

In 2017, Asia Pacific held the largest market share in the failure analysis equipment market and was likely to continue with its supremacy during the forecast period from 2018 to 2026.
