Analyst Review

The global focused ion beam market has a lucrative scope of growth during the forecast period. In 2015, North America generated the maximum revenue, followed by Asia-Pacific. Electronics and semiconductor industries are on rise in the Asia-Pacific region. Moreover, investment in R&D in these industries has increased substantially worldwide. Although high cost of FIB equipment is major challenge, innovation of cost-effective FIB equipment presents major opportunity for market growth. The FIB market is segmented based on ion source (gallium, gold, and iridium) and application (failure analysis, circuit edit, device modification, and material science). Failure analysis and circuit editing hold major market share of the global FIB market.

Increased R&D of new ion sources, such as lithium, companies try to develop advanced and cost-effective technologies. Since the market is niche, multiple prominent players to gain their foothold in the market. High investment expenditure in R&D has resulted in increased cost of FIB equipment. Since the industry demands continuous innovation, high cost of the FIB is expected to restrain the market growth. However, with the entrance of new players and tough competition between the well-established companies, the prices are expected to drop.
