Global Automated Microscopy Market: Segmentation Analysis

Based on the product type the automated microscopy market is segmented into two broad categories; by product type, and by application. By product type the market is further segmented into optical microscopes, electron microscopes and scanning probe microscopes. The optical microscope segment is further segmented into inverted microscopes, stereomicroscopes, phase contrast microscopes, fluorescence microscopes, confocal scanning microscopes, near field microscopes and others. The electron microscopes market is further segmented to Transmission Electron Microscopes (TEM) and Scanning Electron Microscopes (SEM). Whereas, the scanning probe microscopes segment comprise Scanning Tunneling Microscopes (STM) and Atomic Force Microscopes AFM). Optical microscopes are extensively used in fields such as microelectronics, material sciences, nanophysics, pharmaceutical research and biotechnology. For example, optical microscopes in material sciences, which use nanophysics extensively, are used to identify the metal or the alloy used, to analyze the results of heat treatment, which is used to improve the physical properties of an alloy, to examine metal surface coating, and for dimension analysis, apart from many other uses. In microelectronics, optical microscopes are used to analyze densely populated circuit boards for imperfections and determination of possible new designs. Optical microscopes have many variants depending on the designs.

Global Automated Microscopy Market: Trends and Drivers

The major drivers driving the global automated microscopy market includes ongoing miniaturization in semiconductor and electronics industry, developments in nanotechnology and rising demand for affordable renewable energy sources. Increasing global focus on research and development for application areas such as nanotechnology, material science and semiconductor industry would enhance the adoption rate of advanced microscopes such as automated electron and scanning probe microscopes. These microscopes offer image resolution as high as 0.1 nm, which is essentially required by these precision manufacturing industries. Moreover, scanning probe microscopes, which are not dependent on the wavelength of light source for magnification are suitable in liquid and gas environment and can view both conductor and insulator specimens. Increased adoption rate of these advanced microscopes by precision manufacturing industries would drive the global microscopy devices market significantly during the forecast period.
