Market Report Description

The Global Focused Ion Beam Market size is expected to reach $1.9 billion by 2028, rising at a market growth of 7.3% CAGR during the forecast period.

Focused ion beams or FIB are generated to focus on the point source’s image by using electrostatic lenses onto a substrate and then its precise deflection. These beams usually have a diameter smaller than a meter. FIB-capable equipment generates focused ion beams that have high energy. This technology is vastly used in the semiconductor industry and 3D imaging.

The site-specific investigation, deposition, and destruction of materials using a focused ion beam are utilized mostly in semiconductor devices and materials’ research. The technology’s use in the biological field is progressing as well. FIB systems have been manufactured commercially, mostly for significant semiconductor producers.

Similar to the generation of beams in a scanning electron microscope (SEM), especially in terms of operation, a finely focused beam of ions (often gallium) is utilized in FIB systems as well. These ions can be operated at high beam currents for site-specific milling or sputtering or low beam currents for imaging. Until recently, the semiconductor industry predominantly used FIB systems and associated technologies.

With the help of FIB, applications like circuit modification, defect analysis, photomask repair, and the production of site-specific samples for transmission electron microscopy (TEM) have become standard practices. Modern FIB systems offer high-resolution imaging capabilities, and when combined with in situ sectioning, they have often rendered the necessity for SEM examination of FIB-sectioned specimens irrelevant.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The use of focused ion beams has increased in the semiconductor industry significantly as a device that is used extensively in consumer electronic goods along with its use in research activities like space research, biomedical engineering, etc. A lack of raw materials needed for semiconductor production resulted in the decreased manufacturing of it, which had ripple effects in various industries. Consequently, this reduced the demand for focused ion beam. The lockdown restrictions of the pandemic also lowered the application of FIB in research.

Market Growth Factors

Increasing implementation of FIB systems in the material science industry

In general, material science deals with developing and discovering new methods and materials for various research and studies. Since testing and characterization of materials are crucial before their utilization, appropriate testing methods are required by the industry. The newly discovered or developed material can be used in any of the subdivisions of the field, namely photonic and electronic materials, biomaterials, organic materials, smart materials, composite and structural materials, and nanomaterials. As a result, exponential growth is being witnessed in the utilization of FIB systems in numerous research activities associated with the field.

Rise in the deployment of FIB systems in ion beam lithography

The process of developing integrated circuits (ICs) by scanning FIB across a patterned surface is called ion beam lithography. Focused ion beams offer better patterning with higher resolution in comparison to other methods like electron beam lithography, X-ray, or UV. Focused ion beam systems are also preferred over these methods because of their improved backscattering, sensitivity resistance, and proximity effects. Additionally, unlike the lithography process done by electron beam where scissoring or cross-linking of the resist layer is induced by primary as well as secondary electrons, ion beam lithography depends on secondary electrons of short range.

Market Restraining Factor

Lack of skilled professionals for proper operation of FIB systems

Analysis of FIB equipment and the recommendations leading to improvement includes the utilization of numerous techniques, technical expertise, and equipment. For example, the failure analysis of damaged or faulty chips in the decapsulation needs to be performed by skilled engineers. This is because experienced professionals can quickly identify and segregate the reason for the fault of the chips. Moreover, qualified engineers are capable of reencapsulation of chips as per their designated places for proper functioning.

Application Outlook

On the basis of application, the focused ion beam market is divided into failure analysis, nanofabrication, device modification, circuit edit, and counterfeit detection. The nanofabrication segment witnessed a promising growth rate in the focused ion beam market in 2021. The increasing interest of researchers in developing robust nanofabrication technologies, mainly for the formation of 3D devices and structures, is a significant factor that expedites the growth of the segment.

Ion Source Outlook

Based on ion source, the focused ion beam market is categorized into Ga+ liquid metal, gas field, and plasma. The gas field segment procured a considerable growth rate in the focused ion beam market in 2021. The use of gas field ion source (GFIS) is increasing because of the growing technological advancements that have successfully integrated the technology into the FIB systems.

Vertical Outlook

Based on vertical, the focused ion beam market is segmented into electronics & semiconductor, industrial science, bioscience, and material science. The electronics and semiconductor segment garnered the maximum revenue share in the focused ion beam market in 2021. The FIB systems are extensively utilized in the electronics and semiconductor industry in processes like circuit edit, which allows circuit designers to add metal connections or cut traces within a chip. FIB systems help in quick and easy edits at a comparatively small fraction.
