The global failure analysis equipment market was valued at US$ 4,978.4 Mn in 2017, expanding at a CAGR of 8.3% during the forecast period 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 of it 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 eradicate the upcoming or existing problems of a product. This equipment is used to examine the problems and vouch for a helpful action or improvement in order to avoid failures which can occur in the future. This in turn, reduces the maintenance costs and improves efficiency through timely analysis. Increasing applications and demand of failure analysis equipment for quality inspection are some of the major factors driving the growth prospects of 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 product and solutions that are being offered to them is enabling organizations for implementing failure analysis equipment into their manufacturing facilities. Moreover, industrial and technological advancements are further allowing organizations to cut down cost 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 growth of the failure analysis equipment market across the globe.

"Focused Ion Beam (FIB) System 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 semiconductors 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 microscope (SEM), but uses 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 expected to grow at a significant rate in the years to come.

"Secondary Ion Mass Spectroscopy (SIMS) Technology Garnered Largest Market Share in 2017"

Based on technology, secondary ion mass spectroscopy (SIMS) technology led 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 spluttering the surface of the sample with an intensive primary ion beam and then analyzing and collecting the ejected secondary ions. Secondary ion mass spectroscopy is one of the most subtle surface analysis method, with essential detection limits ranging from parts per million to parts per billion. The ability of identifying all elements present in very low concentration levels is driving the growth of this segment.
