The focused ion beam, or FIB, refers to an advanced technique that uses a highly focused beam of ions for site-specific analysis, deposition, and removal of structures. It is extensively utilized for rapid preparation of transmission electron microscope (TEM) sample, evaluation of beam-sensitive materials, three-dimensional (3D) tomography, and fabrication of micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS). It is also employed to modify the specimen surface directly through the sputtering process. The intensity and energy of the ion beam can be controlled to perform nano-machining with high precision to create minute components or remove unwanted materials. In recent years, FIB has gained immense traction as it enables the imaging and modification of a specimen with high spatial resolution.

Focused Ion Beam Market Trends:
FIB systems are extensively used in the ion beam lithography process for producing patterns across the surface of samples. As a result, the increasing FIB applications for examining mechanical properties, analyzing high-resolution structures, and determining force interactions represents the primary factor driving the market growth. Besides this, the widespread product adoption in material science as a microscope and specimen preparation tool represents another major growth-inducing factor. Additionally, there has been a significant rise in the demand for failure analysis in the electronics and semiconductor industries. This, in line with the growing usage of FIB in nanofabrication applications, is catalyzing the product demand. Furthermore, the ongoing research and development (R&D) activities in the field of material science and biomaterials are offering lucrative growth opportunities to the market players. Moreover, the leading manufacturers are launching innovative FIB systems to facilitate accurate nanoscale measurements, thereby contributing to the market growth. Other factors, including the introduction of new ion sources, technological advancements, and emerging circuit editing applications, are also anticipated to create a positive market outlook in the upcoming years.
