Global Film Thickness Measurement Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Film Thickness Measurement is the process of quantitatively measuring the thickness of a film. It is important for a variety of reasons, including ensuring that coatings and other films are applied at the correct thickness, manufacturing consistent products, and troubleshooting problems with film-based products.

Thickness Monitor:

The global film thickness monitor market size was valued at USD 6.5 million in 2015 and is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to its increasing usage in various application areas such as automotive, aerospace & defense, packaging, consumer electronics assembly and medical devices. The growing demand for high precision thin-film components from these industries is anticipated to drive the industry growth over the next seven years.

Spectrum Ellipsometer:

A spectrum ellipsometer is an instrument used for measuring the thickness of films and sheets. It works on the principle of total internal reflection of light. The device consists of a semi-transparent cover glass, which is mounted on a holder or probe, and then incident light is allowed to pass through the film under study while its electric field is oriented at 90 degrees to that of the surface normal.

Application Insights:

The displays segment dominated the global film thickness measurement market in terms of revenue share in 2017. The growth can be attributed to the increasing demand for large display devices such as smartphones, laptops and televisions. In addition, technological advancements and new product launches are further expected to drive the demand over the forecast period.

Medical applications accounted for a significant share of 15.9% in 2017 owing to an increase in usage of films across various medical applications such as wound dressing, catheters & cannulae, stents & bioresorbable grafts and implants (Cardiac), ophthalmic solutions (Retinal) photovoltaic cells/modules coatings anti-reflective coatings optoelectronic devices solar cells/ modules etc.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global film thickness measurement market in 2017. The region is expected to witness a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to increasing investments in various industries such as aerospace & defense, automotive, and electronics. In addition, rising disposable income coupled with expanding manufacturing sector will drive demand for consumer goods which will further propel regional growth over the next eight years.

The Asia Pacific was followed by Europe which accounted for around 25% of total revenue share in 2017 owing to high R&D investment by multinational companies and government support for innovation & technology development across this region.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for thinner and lighter films for packaging and other applications
  • Rising demand from the electronics industry for films with improved performance characteristics
  • Growing popularity of flexible displays and other advanced electronic devices
  • Proliferation of nanotechnology-based products that require accurate film thickness measurement
  • Increasing research and development spending by film manufacturers to improve their products
