Key factors driving the growth of this market include rise in demand for failure analysis in the electronics & semiconductor industry and increase in demand for ion beam lithography process using focused ion beam systems for producing patterns across the surface of samples.
The Ga+ liquid metal segment captured the largest share. The growth of this segment can be attributed to several advantages offered by focused ion beam systems using Ga+ liquid metal as an ion source. Moreover, the majority of manufacturers of focused ion beam systems are deploying Ga+ liquid metal ion sources in their systems.
The electronics & semiconductor segment accounted for the largest share of the focused ion beam market. The growth of this segment can be attributed to the increasing consumer demand for fast, compact, pocket-friendly, and highly power-efficient portable devices. As the size of electronic components shrinks, it affects their reliability and performance. Focused ion beam systems are required to analyze the performance of these components.
The failure analysis segment accounted for the largest share of the focused ion beam market. The growth of this segment of the market can be attributed to the increased use of focused ion beam systems for carrying out the failure analysis of components or devices to recognize the cause leading to their failure during their manufacturing process. Manufacturers use focused ion beam systems to test and analyze the performance of different components or devices, thereby leading to an increased demand for these systems from the electronics & semiconductor vertical.
North America accounted for the largest share of the focused ion beam market. Technological advancements in the electronics & semiconductor vertical, new product launches undertaken by leading players in the focused ion beam ecosystem, and increased adoption of focused ion beam systems in numerous universities and research institutes, are expected to fuel the growth of the market in North America. The market in the US is expected to experience the highest traction during the forecast period as a significant number of organizations based in the country are involved in the manufacturing of focused ion beam systems.
