Ellipsometer Market: Overview
Materials such as films, are available in varied thicknesses. While thick films can be easily measured using varied devices, thin films are much more challenging to measure. Ellipsometer is a type of testing equipment that is used to measure and analyze thin films. The application of an ellipsometer in measuring the thickness and refractive index of thin films is increasing rapidly. Hence, the demand for ellipsometers is expected to increase significantly. Manufacturers are focusing on product innovation to deliver an industry compliant product and improve the accuracy of ellipsometers. One of the key applications of an ellipsometer is in the semiconductor industry as it is used for measuring a thin layer of SiO2 on a silicon wafer throughout production. The demand for ellipsometers is expected to be driven by the availability of different types of ellipsometers which are application specific and more accurate. The leading manufacturers of ellipsometers are focusing on the addition of technological advancements in their products to improve the performance and add automation to ellipsometers. For example, J.A. Woollam offers M-2000 Ellipsometer. This is automated in nature and can accommodate wafers up to 200mm. After considering such parameters, the market is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period.

Ellipsometer Market: Drivers and Restraints
One of the prime factors fuelling the growth of the ellipsometer market is that this device can measure the refractive index as well as a thickness of thin transparent films to the lowest possible unit such as 1nm. This factor is creating a unique position for ellipsometers in the global market. The increasing popularity of ellipsometry, a technique used to perform optical measurement, is ultimately fueling the demand as an ellipsometer is used in ellipsometry. The increasing demand for optical measurement in industries for production and development due to its non-invasive nature is another factor driving the growth of the ellipsometer market. The users can customize the ellipsometer as per their requirements by altering some parameters such as the position of points, reflectivity of a tube, number of points, and others. The adoption of ellipsometers is increasing in industrial applications due to its unique features such as fast speed for analysis, compact size, lightweight, and others. The factors mentioned above are some of the key factors which are expected to drive the ellipsometer market. On the other hand, lower adoption rate and high prices are some of the challenges hindering the growth of the market.
