DUBLIN – (COMMERCIAL THREAD)–The “Microscopy market by product (microscopes, software, accessories), type (optical microscope (stereo, digital), electron microscope (SEM, TEM), AFM, STM), application (semiconductor, life sciences), end user (industrial, research) – Global forecasts until 2026 “ report was added to ResearchAndMarkets.com offer.

The microscopy market is expected to reach USD 8.9 billion in 2026 from USD 6.5 billion in 2020, at a CAGR of 5.6% during the forecast period.

By product, the software segment is expected to experience above-average growth in the microscopy market during the forecast period.

Software is expected to show the strongest growth during the forecast period. The introduction of new image acquisition software for microscopes is the recent trend in the microscopy market. Growing research in the life sciences and other fields of application has resulted in the generation of a large amount of data, mainly due to advancements in image quality. Today’s software can no longer handle these images, indicating the potential opportunities in software development. Recent key microscopy software releases include ZEISS ZEN Connect, Zeiss ZEN Core, ZEISS ZEN Intelleis software and arivis Vision4D and arivis inViewR patent pending.

By type, optical microscopes accounted for the largest share of the microscopy market during the forecast period.

On the basis of type, the global microscopy market is segmented into optical microscopes, electron microscopes, scanning probe microscopes, and other microscopes. In 2020, optical microscopes accounted for the largest share of the microscopy market, mainly due to the increasing applications of digital and confocal microscopes in materials science, semiconductor, and life science and technology industries. increased emphasis on the development of advanced digital microscopes. However, the electron microscopes segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The increasing research activities in life sciences and materials sciences and the emergence of correlative optical and electron microscopy are expected to drive the demand for electron microscopes in the coming years.

By application, the semiconductor applications segment is expected to account for the largest share of the microscopy market during the forecast period.

Based on the applications, the microscopy market is segmented into semiconductor, life science, material science, and other applications. In 2020, semiconductor applications accounted for the largest share of the microscopy market.

Microscopy is widely used in the semiconductor industry for R&D, quality control, monitoring, process development, and failure analysis. This factor, along with the growing demand for miniature transistor chips, nanoelectronics, quantum dots, and optoelectronics, is driving the demand for microscopes in the semiconductor industry. However, the materials science applications segment is expected to be the fastest growing applications segment during the forecast period. In recent years, research in materials science has increased dramatically. This is expected to lead to the adoption of microscopes, as they are used in the structural and chemical analysis of materials, including polymers, metals, alloys, ceramics and biomaterials.

By end user, the industrial settings segment is experiencing the fastest growing.

Based on end users, the microscopy market is segmented into industries, academic and research institutes, and other end users. In 2020, the industries segment accounted for the largest share of the microscopy market. It is also the fastest growing segment. Optical and electron microscopes are widely used in industries for particle identification and analysis, material characterization, process control, quality control and failure analysis, which is a major factor in the growth of the Marlet.

North America is expected to account for the largest market share during the forecast period.

The microscopy market is divided into four major regions – Europe, North America, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. North America accounted for the largest share of the global market, followed closely by Europe. Factors such as large R&D budgets, the availability of advanced microscopy systems offered by market leaders, the growing and growing attention given to nanotechnology and the presence of a large number of leading research institutes and universities in the world. region are driving the growth of the microscopy market in North America.
