Market growth is driven largely by factors such as favorable funding scenario for R&D in microscopy, rising demand for electron microscopes in applied industries (such as semiconductor manufacturing).
Technological advancements in microscopy include digitization, live-cell imaging, super-resolution, and high-throughput methods. These advancements serve to reduce product and test costs.
Recent developments in microscopes include expansion microscopes, scanning helium microscopes (SHeM), multi-view microscopes, and integrated microscopy workflows. Digital microscopy is the latest trend in the microscopy market. Digital imaging offers enhanced image resolution with greater precision, leading to fewer distorted images and allowing for better viewing of samples.

Owing to technological advancements, there has been a shift in the usage patterns of microscopes. Conventional microscopes are gradually losing their popularity to high-end microscopes such as electron microscopes, scanning probe microscopes, and digital microscopes due to their advanced features, higher resolution, and magnification power.
Government funding for R&D in advanced microscopes has increased considerably in these countries. For instance, in February 2017, the Indian government provided funds worth ~USD 45,000 to design and develop multimodal optical microscopes using Fourier optical image processing. Since its inception in 2011, the Centre of Nanotechnology and Nanomaterials (Saransk, Russia) has been manufacturing unique nano pincers for microscopes that allow particles on a scale of 30 nanometers to be captured.
According to the European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training (CEDEFOP), science and engineering are among the top industries in terms of occupational shortage of skilled labor. Similarly, in 2017, there was a deficit of about 40% of laboratory technicians in primary health centers (PHCs) and community health centers (CHCs) in India (Source: Health Ministry of India).
Increasing research in life sciences and other application areas have resulted in the generation of a large amount of data, mainly due to advances in image quality. Present software can no longer handle these images, which indicates the potential opportunities offered in the area of software development. Recent key microscopy software launches include ZEISS ZEN Connect, Zeiss ZEN Core, ZEISS ZEN Intelleis software, and arivis Vision4D and patent-pending arivis inViewR.
The major companies in the microscopy market include Carl Zeiss (Germany), Danaher Corporation (US), Thermo Fisher Scientific (US), Nikon (Japan), Bruker Corporation (US), Olympus (Japan), Oxford Instruments (UK), JEOL (Japan), and Hitachi High-Technologies (Japan), among others.
