Failure Analysis Market fostered by the increasing importance given to prevention of product malfunction to avoid harmful effects.

Failure is termed as the loss of functional integrity of a system or a group of system leading to loss of life, economy, or output. Failure Analysis refers to the analysis of possible ways of failure of electrical, electronic and mechanical parts of a system that has undergone a breakdown. Several tests are performed to analyze the occurrence.
