Microscope Market to Reach $9 Billion by 2017

Rockville, MD | Posted on August 30th, 2011

The world microscopes market, encompassing optical (light), confocal, electron and scanning probe microscopes, generated an estimated $5.6 billion in revenues in 2010. The market is expected to grow to over $9 billion by 2017.

Increased government and corporate funding in life sciences, materials research and nanotechnology is leading to sustained growth in microscopy. Optical microscopes currently account for the majority of the microscopy market but will lose market share to electron and scanning probe microscopes in the coming years. The largest end user market for microscopy is semiconductors, followed by life sciences, and nanotechnology and nanomaterials research.

The industry was negatively affected by the global recession overall, especially in the semiconductors end-user sector (the largest consumer of advanced microscopes) but witnessed growth in the life sciences and healthcare. Electron and Scanning Probe are the fastest growing microscopy markets.

The main regional markets for electron and scanning probe microscopes are in Asia-Pacific and USA. Asia-Pacific is the fastest growing market, with robust sales in Japan and China and an emerging market in India.

The report covers selected key companies in the market including Agilent Technologies, Carl Zeiss SMT, FEI Company, Hitachi High-Technologies, JEOL Ltd., KLA-Tencor, Leica Microsystems, Nikon, NT-MDT Co., Olympus Corporation and Park Systems.
