Failure Analysis Market

Industry Overview

The increase in the growth of the industry is due to an increase in demand for failure analysis by automobile manufacturers. These manufacturers are also employing advanced tools for performance analysis and accident reconstruction. This is leading to the enhancement of the market’s growth.

Failure Analysis is a technique used to identify the reason for failure to correct or eliminate it. It involves understanding the root cause of failure to prevent failures in the future. These root causes of failure can occur due to assembly error, fastening failure, defects occurring while manufacturing, use of low-quality material, errors in design, environmental factors, discontinuities in casting, errors in quality assurance and control, and defects generated during operations.

Automation has propelled growth in the industry. The manufacturers of electric vehicles and electronic devices such as batteries, energy systems, and mobile phones use failure analysis to enhance the performance and output. These manufacturers use electron microscopy techniques to break down these devices to their basic structures at the atomic scale. Along with this, the spectroscopy technique is also used to check the reasons for inefficiency caused by the defects.

Service providers are trying to find out new avenues to provide effective failure analysis in the industry. For example, in 2021, SGS announced to invest in the Secondary ION Mass Spectrometry equipment for the testing of marine fuels. Another area where failure analysis is majorly used is to identify the cause of vehicular accidents for private and commercial vehicles. These vehicular accidents can cause severe damage to the property, body, or even loss of life.

Impact of COVID-19

Due to the lockdown imposed by countries to limit the spread of COVID-19 the failure analysis industry took a blow. The supply chain and production of semiconductors were disrupted. The testing plants in Asia Pacific had to suspend their operations. This created a problem for the semiconductor manufacturers as they relied on these testing plants to test the defects in the products.

Market Drivers

The automobile sector is driving the growth of the Failure Analysis market

Automobile companies have been facing numerous challenges regarding the prices of electronic equipment. To maintain the quality of the electronic components as well as to keep the prices low the manufacturing process must be highly efficient. The components should be able to withstand quality control procedures. The automobile sector is also investing highly in IoT devices, ADAS systems, and smart sensors. These devices aim to improve the safety of the vehicle while driving and prevent road accidents. Every year 1.3 million lose their lives due to road accidents, according to a report by WHO in 2021. These accidents also cause major non-fatal injuries and disabilities.

There can be numerous causes of these accidents such as fault in the product design, contamination, improper calibration, and handling. These have raised concerns regarding the quality of the components used to prevent these incidents in the future.

Government interventions are driving the growth of the Failure Analysis market

The government has intervened in the automotive market with tough rules and regulations regarding the safety of vehicles. There has been a surge in the demand for automobiles in the Asia Pacific region and due to this the automobile industry has grown considerably. Especially, the number of passenger vehicles has increased a lot. The increase in demand for the automobile sector has led to the growth of the Failure Analysis market.

The failure in the electronic components of automobiles can cause accidents. Hence, these components must be well-tested before being installed in the vehicles. This can be achieved by proper failure analysis techniques where the root cause of the failure can be found and can be corrected and eliminated in the future.

Failure analysis is also an important tool to determine which component led to the accident. Hence, it is used to establish the cause of the accident.

Market Restraints

The high cost of equipment is a market restraint for the growth of the Failure Analysis market

The equipment to conduct Failure analysis is very expensive. It is an exceptional investment that requires high entry barriers for new entrants. Although the cost is a restraining factor it saves labor costs, increases productivity, and saves time.

But most companies do not have enough money to cover the installation cost required for the Failure Analysis. This lack of funds is restraining the growth by affecting the supply. Additionally, there is maintenance cost that the company has to bear over the long run.

The complexity of operations is a market restraint for the growth of the Failure Analysis market

Failure analysis runs on cutting-edge technology in which the operations are highly technical and complex. To conduct these operations technical professionals are required in the team who can efficiently identify the root cause of the failure. Unfortunately, the market suffers from a low number of highly skilled professionals with which the industry is not able to meet the demand. It is further acting as a restraining force for the growth of the industry. As a smaller number of qualified and trained professionals are there the adoption of technology will also be lesser, affecting the industry badly.

This research report on the failure analysis market has been segmented and sub-segmented based on equipment, technology, end-user vertical, and region.

Failure Analysis Market – By Technology

  • Secondary ION Mass Spectrometry (SIMS)
  • Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy (EDX)
  • Chemical Mechanical Planarization (CMP)
  • Other Technologies

There are different types of technology based on which we can further segment the Failure Analysis market. There are mainly four types as mentioned below. Secondary ION Mass Spectrometry uses the spectrometry technique to find the root cause of the failure by cutting a cross-section of the electronic device. Whereas Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy uses an integration of X-rays and spectroscopy to find the defects.

Failure Analysis Market – By Equipment

  • Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM)
  • Focused Ion Beam (FIB) System
  • Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM)
  • Dual Beam System

There are various types of equipment that can be used to conduct Failure Analysis. Mainly there are four types of equipment. This equipment either makes use of electron microscopy or ion beam depending on the electronic device used or the problem at hand. Majorly, Scanning Electron Microscope is used in Failure analysis to find the root cause of the failure which would be further eliminated or corrected.
