Semiconductor and Electronics Ion Milling System Market

The ion milling system market is expected to grow at a CAGR 7.84% rate from 2021 to 2026. Factors such as increasing demand for high-end microscopy systems in various applications, and technological advancements in microscopes are expected to drive the market. Increasing demand in the emerging market in developing countries is expected to provide substantial growth opportunities to players in the ion milling system market.Cross-section milling to grow at highest CAGR for ion milling system market during the forecast period. Ion milling systems are used widely as instruments for preparing cross-section samples for scanning electron microscope (SEM), with applications in fields such as materials sciences and semiconductor materials. In general, cross-section milling systems are used for samples for which mechanical polishing is difficult, such as bulk samples or samples with multilayer structures.


FIB electron microscopy is expected to hold a major share of the ion millings system market. FIB is a robust and extremely reliable technique ideal for quality inspection. It has evolved due to advances in the field of ion microscopes and through the development of high-resolution liquid metal ion sources. The increasing usage of FIB in nanotechnology and structural biology is expected to drive the growth of the FIB market in the near future.


Polymer sample material will account for the largest share of the ion milling system market in 2021. Ceramics are generally non-metallic inorganic solids that are prepared by heating powder or slurry. Ceramic samples are mostly brittle and are therefore very difficult to thin mechanically to a low starting thickness for ion milling. The ion milling of insulators often leads to static charging of the surface of the sample; this, in turn, reduces the sputter rate.


North America is expected to hold the largest share of the ion milling system market during the forecast period. In North America, increasing demand for ion milling systems provides a huge opportunity for nano-mechanical testing in sectors such as industrial, life sciences, semiconductor, and material development applications, among many others. North America is the largest adopter of ion milling systems used in testing at present, and the trend is likely to continue in the coming years.
