Gallium ion source segment dominated the market, accounting for about 40% of the overall market share in 2014. Owing to its nontoxic nature, gallium is widely accepted as a major ion source for FIB. However, others segment is expected to register a CAGR of 8.0%, and is projected to demonstrate significant growth during the forecast period. This is attributed to increased R&D of new ion types, such as lithium, to enable cost-effective and efficient operations of FIB, without compromising the quality.
Although North America contributed towards the maximum revenue share in 2014, Asia-Pacific is expected to show highest CAGR during the forecast period. This is attributed to various factors, including increase in demand for electronic products and numerous government initiatives. Moreover, development in focused ion beam (FIB) technologies has fueled the market growth in Asian countries, particularly in China, Japan, and India.
Asia-Pacific is projected to show highest growth rate throughout the analysis period. China has the biggest market for FIB manufacturers and consumers. Moreover, surge in manufacturing industry activities and increased expenditures in the emerging markets, such as Japan and India, to cater to the exponential growth for consumer electronics have strengthened the market growth. Technological advancements for cost-effective FIB in these nations offer lucrative opportunity for the market.
