Market Overview

Markets for Electron and Scanning Probe Microscopes seeing Considerable Growth

While the light microscopes market approaches maturity, the market for electron and scanning probe microscopes markets are set to grow at a good pace as nanotechnology applications in bioscience and material sciences research are expected to boost demand for microscopic imaging and analysis systems. In addition, a large spectrum of emerging end-user opportunities in biosciences and genome research are further driving the market for such kinds of microscopes. In a market that is operating at a high level of competency, it has become imperative that companies redefine their strategies to provide customers with instruments that are reliable and easy to operate. Proactive monitoring of evolving requirements of customers will also go a long way in achieving the company’s growth objective.

In terms of market restraints, the slow rate of technical change remains a critical impediment to the markets growth. "Although certain microscopy techniques are still much sought after in several biological, scientific, and academic research applications, physical limitations to their improvement could lead to alternative techniques capturing a major portion of the demand in the long run," notes the analyst of this research service." The need for faster and more accurate analysis in research and other emerging applications has led to other techniques such as spectroscopy becoming more prominent."

Increasing Demand from Asia Pacific Regions Boosts Overall Growth

Deregulation and liberalization of many of the countries in the Asia Pacific region have opened up potential opportunities for microscopes in several end-user industries. The region is witnessing a greater need for effective microscopy techniques, particularly with the progressive shift of manufacturing facilities in the semiconductor manufacturing and electronics industries to the Asia Pacific countries such as China, India, Taiwan, and Thailand. Furthermore, a greater focus on quality levels in industrial and biological research activities has prompted demand for effective and advanced microscopy techniques. The impact of this driver is likely to be high in the short term and is expected to sustain through the forecast period.

Among the regional markets, the Asia Pacific market remains the largest one for microscopes, accounting for a share of 46.9 percent in 2006. North America represents the second largest geographic segment with a share of 26.7 percent in 2006, while the European region had a share of 22.2 percent in 2006. "While focus on specific segments is necessary to gain domain expertise and greater market association with specific end-user segment, companies also have to diversify their product portfolio and provide additional capabilities and functionalities in their systems to cater to the needs of various other end-user segments," says the analyst. "This holds significant importance in the microscopes market since there are a limited number of end-user industries at present."
