Press release   •   May 01, 2013 14:51 BST

The Global Electron Microscope market is to grow at a CAGR of 9.9 percent over the period 2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing demand for effective failure analysis. The Global Electron Microscope market has also been witnessing the increasing scientific and analytical fusions. However, the fund scarcity is limiting its penetration in emerging markets could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.

In the recent past, optical microscopes have been replaced to some extent by electron microscopes to conduct analyses at very high resolutions such as 0.1 nm. In addition, the vendors and end-users in the market have been focusing on integration of electron microscopes with various types of analytical instrument. This integration would enable customers to analyze a captured image with the help of analytical instruments integrated into the electron microscope. Thus, the trend of integrating electron microscopes with analytical instruments is expected to have a positive impact on the growth of the Global Electron Microscope market during the forecast period.

One of the main drivers in this market is the increasing demand for effective failure analysis to support the rapid technological advancements across industries. Electron microscopes are extensively used in educational institutions and sectors such as Automotive, Aerospace, Forensics, Metals, Mining, Oil and Gas, and Petrochemicals.

The market vendors are facing difficulties in balancing the high manufacturing cost and maintaining the quality of their products, bearing in mind the limited purchasing power of customers in the emerging markets. This is one of the major challenges in the market.

Key vendors dominating Global Electron Microscope market space include Carl Zeiss Microscopy GmbH, FEI Co., Hitachi High-Technologies Corp., and JEOL Ltd.
