Report ID: GMI4274

Summary Methodology

Nano Positioning System Market size is projected to grow at a mounting rate during the estimated period with implementation of these devices for applications such as hold & position and scanning. It is used in several applications including microscopy, semiconductor manufacturing, optics, and photonics packaging due to its high resolution, fast & accurate high throughput data acquisition, and processing. These devices enable the positioning of devices at the desired position with nanometer accuracy and repeatability with nano-scale resolution. These devices are also penetrating application areas, such as mechanics, electronics, magnetic devices, electromechanical system engineering, and digital control systems, due to improved speed, accuracy, compatibility, and reliability.

Piezo stage devices are expected to significantly contribute to the nano positioning system market and can achieve high levels of precision. These devices offer highly controlled & extremely uniform small displacements, smooth linear motion, nanometer positional accuracy, high-speed motion, etc. These stage devices are free of maintenance, flexure guided, and are available in ultra-high vacuum configurations, creating their higher demand. In addition, these devices operate in ultra-high vacuum with long-term stability.

Capacitive sensors are being considerably used in the industry as they provide very high accuracy, resolution, and linearity at the nanometer level. They offer position feedback in nano-positioning applications in servo loop and can also be used as an independent position sensor. These sensors provide measurement stability of sub-nanometers for several hours, remove recurring errors related to optical encoders, and offer greater flexibility. The maintenance-free and no wear properties of these sensors are further increasing their adoption. Digital controller system providers and analog original equipment manufacturers are the major adopters of capacitive sensors due to their minimum heating and high-temperature stability.

The major challenge faced by the industry is the high level of repeatability that creates a loophole in its implementation for building and characterizing some structures. The hysteresis loss in the actuators & backlash is negatively affecting the global nano positioning system market, restraining the growing nano-positioning system market. Other factors restraining the demand are high cost of design, more complexity of designs in positioning the exact machinery, and unviable to small segmented business.

The industries creating high demand for these devices is the industrial sector, health care, electronics, automotive, packaging food, and energy. Electronics manufacturing is witnessing lucrative growth for these systems, thereby augmenting the nano positioning system market. The application of these systems in electronics manufacturing will reduce the size of transistor switches to 130 to 250 nanometers much faster operating process time. These chips will enhance the speed, size, and design of all electronic components. In addition, these systems will play a vital role in applications such as semiconductor analysis, microscopy, and manufacturing chips for smartphones’ thumb drives, ultra-responsive hearing, and other electronic devices.

The healthcare sector is extensively implementing these systems, such as autofocus, z -stacks, sample scanning, and cell tracking, in nanomedicines for medical research. Medication will become more advanced with the help of bio-medical equipment for all test instruments such as scanner, x-rays, bone neural tissue engineering, and other modernized surgical instruments. Optics & photonics microscopy, advanced positioning systems, and aerospace are some of the other application areas creating opportunities for the nano positioning system market.

Europe is one of the major regions where France and Germany have conducted extensive research in the field of nano positioning in the domain of interferometry and precession laser. Canada, Mexico, Italy, China, Japan, Korea, India, the UAE, South Africa, Saudi Arabic, Brazil, and Argentina have also conducted immense work in R&D and experimentation. Asia Pacific nano positioning system market is projected to grow at an impressive rate due to the advancements in China’s life science sector.

The key players in the nano positing system market are Mad City Labs, Aerotech Inc., Dynamic Structures & Materials, LLC, OWIS GmbH, SmarAct GmbH, Cedrat Technologies, OME Technology Co. Ltd., Ten Angstroms, and 3D Systems. The companies are offering newer technologies with very high precision. For instance, Aerotech offers laser technology-based positioning system with nanometer accuracy to provide higher rigidity and flexible design for customers in the nano positioning system market. In January 2019, Aerotech, Inc. announced a strategic partnership with Micronix USA for broadening the developments in nano positioning systems for difficult applications. Physik Instrumente provides application-specific nano positioning systems for magnetic levitation systems, air bearing stages, high-performance linear motors, and others. The developments of high-precision systems and maintenance-free products by the companies will further increase the demand for these devices.
