An ion beam is a kind of charged particle beam which consists of ions. With the advancement of nanotechnology new and advanced fabrication techniques are required which helps in production of functional features in much smaller scales. Advanced techniques are being used for applications in material science which uses image surfaces producing different features in a nanoscale. Gas field ion source technology has the capability of combining helium and neon ion beams (multiple ion beams) which are atom sized for applications across materials development, plasmonic research, semiconductor technology and lithography. For the functioning of multiple ion beam microscopes, multiple arrangement of ion source for introduction of high current ion beam is focused on a single accelerator column. This angular spread of ion beam is particularly directed towards linear array of ion sources which is kept at 45 degree angle. The beam is then maintained parallel to lines of uniform magnetic ion field operated with respect to the magnetic strength of that particular field causing multiple ion beams to enter common accelerator column with very small divergence of the composite beam. The global market for multiple ion beam microscopes has been segmented on the basis of applications which includes nanofabrication, device modification, failure analysis, material science and circuit edit among others.
Global Multiple ion beam microscopes market on the basis of geography is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa and Latin America.
Multiple ion beam microscopes have huge applications in semiconductor industry with these instruments being used in failure analysis for detection of assembly and design errors as well as crucial manufacturing defects. This forms one of the most important drivers for the rise in demand of multiple ion beam microscopes market globally. Other than this, multiple ion beam microscopes provides coverage over a complete range of applications. This consists of niche technology segments like micromachining and nanomachining with usage of helium, gallium and neon ion beams post integration in a single instrument. This has become another major driver helping the global multiple ion beam microscopes market to grow.
It is seen that huge costs are associated with the application of the multiple ion beam microscopes which forms one of the major restraints for the growth of multiple ion beam microscopes market globally. Moreover, the complex nature of the device as well as technological dependency further negatively affects the market for multiple ion beam microscopes. The market penetration for these multiple ion beam microscopes is also quite low along with limited implementation forming another major restraint restricting the demand for multiple ion beam microscopes market globally. The multiple ion beam microscopes also has huge growth opportunities especially in the research and development sector which is expected to grow in future. This along with implementation of multiple ion beam microscopes for niche market segments like nanotechnology and advancements in ion sources also will provide many opportunities for the growth of global multiple ion beam microscopes market in future.
Geographically, it is North America which holds the major market share in the global multiple ion beam microscopes market. Increased government grants for developing the research and development sector along with growing application of nanotechnology has been some of the crucial drivers helping the multiple ion beam microscopes market to grow in North America. In addition to this, rising application of multiple ion beam microscopes in manufacturing and semiconductor industry has further helped the market to grow in North America. Asia Pacific has accounted as one of the fastest growing regions globally with China and Japan emerging as some of the major countries driving the growth of multiple ion beam microscopes in Asia Pacific region. Presence of a large number of manufacturing facilities dealing with semiconductor products along with investments being made in the research and development sector has been some of the primary reason for the growth of multiple ion beam microscopes market in Asia Pacific.
Some of the major players operating in the multiple ion beam microscopes market include Carl Zeiss AG (Germany), Jeol Limited (Japan), Bruker (U.S.) and Evans Analytical Group (U.S.) among others which are present in the market globally.
