The Electron Microscope Market Set to Advance With other Global Technology Industries


The world is becoming more technologically advanced by the minute. As a result, there is a much greater demand for advanced error detection solutions. In recent years, more and more industries have regarded electron microscopes as an efficient means of fulfilling this need. Many fields including the automotive, bio-medical, and electronic industries are adopting the technology. Therefore, TechNavio analysts predict that the Global Electron Microscope Market will climb at a CAGR of 9.9 percent over the 2012-2016 period.

As of 2013 the market’s value and growth is divided between the following three products, which allows for a wide margin of diverse vendors including all of which have their own advantages and disadvantages in terms of sales growth:

#1. Scanning Electron Microscopes (SEMs)

Scanning Electron Microscopes are responsible for close to half of all market revenue. This is because of the high demand for SEMs across major end-user groups, including the automotive and industrial segments. These microscopes also have the appeal of being lower in cost than the next two options.

#2. Transmission Electron Microscopes (TEMs)

Transmission Electron Microscopes on the other hand are much more costly, and primarily used in high-end research such as molecular research, biological research, cancer research, and semiconductor research. The main drawback is that despite the advanced technological capabilities of TEMs, the number of organizations performing such high-end research is fairly narrow, resulting in low unit shipments and demand.

#3. DualBeam Instruments

DualBeam instruments are currently the lowest revenue contributor, but their unit sales are expected to increase significantly in the next few years. The segment is relatively new, and also higher in cost than both SEMs and TEMs. The application base for these instruments is also currently small, however it is expected to expand significantly during the next four years, which will increase the market share for DualBeam instruments.

Ultimately, though each of these market segments ranks differently in terms of overall sales and demand, SEMS, TEMs, and DualBeam instruments are all vital components to the overall growth of the market. Furthermore, the market as a whole has a significant advantage due to its relationship with other technology-based fields. As industries like the automotive, aerospace, and bio-pharma sectors expand, the need for effective failure analysis and quality control almost ensures upward growth in The Global Electron Microscope Market for the coming years.
