Microscopy Devices Market Segment Analysis – By Product Type

Based on Product Type, the microscopy devices market can be segmented into optical microscopes, confocal microscopes, stereo microscopes, digital microscopes, compound microscopes, electron microscopes, scanning electron microscopes, transmission electron microscopes, scanning probe microscopes, atomic force microscopes, scanning tunneling microscopes, near-field scanning optical microscopes, and other microscopes. The Scanning Probes Microscope segment accounted for the largest share of the market in 2021 owing to its ability to visualize subcellular components. The growth of this category is being fueled by an increase in the number of applications and quick technical advancements. Natural surface topography, research nanostructures such as integrated circuits and diffraction gratings, and biological materials such as DNA and cell membranes all use SPMs. However, the Electron Microscope segment is anticipated to witness the fastest growth with a CAGR of 8.9% during the forecast period of 2022-2027 owing to its extensive use in research laboratories, universities, and nanotechnology centers for both research and quality assurance applications. With the use of an electron microscopes in such institutions, the structure of various specimens can be observed in great detail to provide information about their function. However, the compound microscope segment is also anticipated to witness robust growth owing to its relatively low cost. Besides, they are also widely used in academic institutions and medical laboratories for studying biological samples.

Microscopy Devices Market Segment Analysis – By Application

Based on Application, the microscopy devices market can be further segmented into nanotechnology, life science, semiconductor, material science, and others. The life sciences segment accounted for the largest share of the microscopy devices market in 2021. This is attributed to the rapid growth of the biopharmaceutical industry during the COVID-19 pandemic. This growth has directly resulted in the rise in R&D and product development activities in the industry. Besides, highly advanced equipment such as electron microscopes is also used in the segment for numerous research activities. However, the semiconductor segment is anticipated to witness the fastest growth with a CAGR of 9.0% during the forecast period 2022-2027 owing to the rapid rise in manufacturing of semiconductor chips in 2022 after the rapid decline of the industry in 2020. For instance, according to the Semiconductor Industry Association, the YoY(Year on Year) semiconductor sales increased by 24% in October 2021 and are anticipated to exceed $600 billion in 2022.

Microscopy Devices Market Segment Analysis – By Geography

North America dominated the geography segment of the Microscopy Devices Market in 2021 with a share of approximately 38%. The rapid growth of the segment is owing to the presence of a highly developed healthcare sector in the US and Canada. Besides, the presence of the majority of the key players operating in the market such as FEI Company, CAMECA Instruments, NT-MDT, Bruker Corporation, and Danaher Corporation. The high domestic competition owing to the presence of major players in the region results in greater innovation and more awareness regarding advanced microscopy devices among the end-user industries in North America.

The Asia Pacific region is anticipated to register the fastest growth during the forecast period 2022-2027 owing to the rising disposable income in major emerging economies such as China and India. moreover, owing to the integration of artificial intelligence in microscopy devices, the Asia Pacific microscopy devices market is likely to rise significantly. For example, in April 2020 Tencent AI Lab developed a smart microscope that uses artificial intelligence (AI) to better assist physicians in identifying cancer and other ailments. The smart microscope is the first of its kind to be granted a license by China's National Medical Products Administration, allowing it to be used in clinical settings which are poised to drive the market growth.
