Focused Ion Beam Market
Focused Ion Beam Market- Rise in Demand for Focused Ion Beam in Sample
The global focused ion beam market was valued at US$ 399.3 Mn in 2017 and is
anticipated to register a stable CAGR of 6.9% during the forecast period 2018 to
2026, according to a new report published by Transparency Market Research
(TMR) titled “Focused Ion Beam Market– Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share,
Growth, Trends, and Forecast, 2018–2026.” Growing demand for focused ion beam
in sample preparation, and rising demand for ion beam lithography and failure
analysis equipment has increased the penetration and growth of the focused ion beam
market globally. The market in North America is expanding at a significant CAGR of
7.5% on the backdrop of numerous technological innovations in advanced laboratory

Increasing Usage of Gallium Expected to Drive Growth of the Focused Ion Beam
The global focused ion beam market by ion sources is segmented broadly into four
major segments, namely gallium, gold, iridium, and others (including gas field
ionization sources and liquid metal alloy ion sources). In terms of revenue, the
gallium ion source was the largest contributor to the market, followed by iridium in
2017. Currently, most of the focused ion beam instruments are equipped with liquid
metal ion source (LMIS) with gallium ions. Gallium LMIS focused ion beam
technology is preferred due to its long source lifetime, stability, high mass ions for
fairly rapid machining, and low melting point. Iridium segment is projected to
expand at the highest CAGR of 7.2% over the forecast period. Key trends prevalent in
the focused ion beam market are acquisition and partnership, and product innovation.

Rise in Sample Preparation Methodsto Drive Market Growth
Focused ion beams are increasingly used in the field of material science, both as a
microscope and as a specimen preparation tool, thereby increasing the demand for
focused ion beam products globally. The adoption of focused ion beam is increasing
in various applications such as for determining high-resolution structure, examining
mechanical properties, and determining force interactions, all at the nanometer scale.
In 2017, the sample preparation segment accounted for the largest market share.
Nanofabrication segment is also expected to expand at a significant CAGR throughout
the forecast period. Focused ion beam technology is becoming popular in the
fabrication of nanoscale structures for different applications. Nanofabrication based on
FIB technology involves four major approaches, namely milling, ion-induced
deposition, implantation, and ion-assisted etching of materials. Focused ion beam
technology complements the entire nanofabrication process by providing various
masking techniques or direct patterning.
