Global Ion Beam Technology Market: Overview
Ion beam instruments have experienced an extensive period of maturation since their inception.
While the mainstream application of ion beam systems remains limited to the semiconductor industry, the usage of these systems has extended to other areas such as geology, forensics, biology, pharmaceuticals, composites, ceramics, and metallurgy.
Ion Beam Etching System Segment Prominent in the Global Ion Beam Technology Market
The ion beam etching system segment was dominant, holding around 66% share of the global ion beam technology market in 2018.
The segment is anticipated to maintain its dominance in the ion beam technology market during the forecast period also, owing to the extensive utilization of ion beam etching systems across various industries, for different applications such as frequency trimming or surface trimming of bulk acoustic wave (BAW) filters, surface trimming of surface acoustic wave (SAW) filters, and thickness and pole width correction of thin film recording heads.
Coating of Dielectric Film a Highly Lucrative Application Segment of the Global Ion Beam Technology Market
In 2018, the coating of dielectric film segment held a leading, i.e. 32.14% share of the global ion beam technology market. The segment is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of nearly 8% in the ion beam technology during the forecast period.
Thin films are largely used across various photovoltaic solar cells, semiconductor circuit boards, microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), and optical coatings.
Asia Pacific to be a Highly Lucrative Market for Ion Beam Technology
In terms of geography, the global ion beam technology market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, the Middle East & Africa, and South America. Asia Pacific dominated the global ion beam technology market, holding 47.5% of the market share in 2018. The ion beam technology market in the region is expected to expand at a high CAGR during the forecast period.
China is anticipated to lead the ion beam technology market in Asia Pacific during the forecast period. High concentration of electronic equipment manufacturers in China and the anticipated exponential growth of the semiconductor industry in the country are key factors expected to fuel the demand for ion beam etching technology in the country during the forecast period.
This, in turn, is anticipated to create lucrative opportunities for various manufacturers of ion beam equipment during the forecast period, to expand their businesses.
