Focused Ion Beam (FIB) Systems Market By Source Type (Gallium, Iridium, Gold), By Application (Sample Preparation, Semiconductor Fabrication) - Growth, Future Prospects And Competitive Analysis 2017 – 2025

With the ever-increasing prevalence of nanotechnology across different industry verticals, the analytical and sample preparation tools required on such length scales have witnessed high demand. The focused ion beam (FIB) is one such prominent technique that uses a focused beam of ions to scan the surface of the given specimen.

In a FIB system, a beam of ions is concentrated onto the surface and raster scanned using ion optics. This enables material removal by ion sputtering with a resolution as low as 10 nm. The overall focused ion beam systems market growth is majorly governed by the rising inclination towards focused ion beams across crucial applications such as material sciences, semiconductor fabrication, secondary ion mass spectrometry, and several others.

Superior advantages over conventional scanning techniques have been the major factor supporting the adoption of focused ion beam systems across different applications. Furthermore, market growth is being fueled by the semiconductor and electronics industries' ongoing progress toward device miniaturization. However, a major challenge for the technology is its slow throughput as compared to electron beam lithography.

On the basis of source type, the global market for focused ion beam systems is segmented into the following categories:

  • Gallium
  • Iridium
  • Gold
  • Others

As of 2016, the overall market for focused ion beam systems was led by the gallium segment. The segment contributed to more than fifty percent of the total market revenue generated worldwide in 2016.

Gallium is one of the most traditional sources used for generating ion beams. The material offers several superior characteristics, such as a low melting point, less volatility at its melting point, low surface energy, and excellent electrical, mechanical, and vacuum properties as compared to other potential sources.

Subsequently, the segment would continue dominating the market throughout the forecast period. However, in the following years, the iridium segment is set to demonstrate the highest growth in the global market.

Based on geography, the globally focused ion beam (FIB) systems market is segmented into the following regions and countries:

  • North America
  • U.S.
  • Canada
  • Europe
  • U.K.
  • Germany
  • France
  • Rest of Europe
  • Asia Pacific
  • Japan
  • China
  • South Asia
  • Rest of Asia Pacific
  • Rest of the World (RoW)
  • Middle East and Africa (MEA)
  • Latin America

The Europe region led the global market for focused ion beam systems in 2016. The region is home to a highly sophisticated semiconductor fabrication industry with a large number of established manufacturers. The market growth here is principally backed by the Western European countries experiencing significant adoption of focused ion beam systems across different applications.

In the following years, Asia Pacific is poised to emerge as the most lucrative market for focused ion beams. The region is rapidly becoming the manufacturing hub for semiconductors and related electronic components. Currently, the penetration of focused ion beam systems is low in Asia and the Pacific. Thus, the region holds immense potential for further market growth.
