The Scanning Probe Microscope (SPM) market in 2013 generated approximately $440 million in revenues (conservative estimate). Atomic Force Microscopes (AFM) accounted for the majority of this market with Scanning tunneling microscope (STM) and NSOM making up less than 10%. Main players in the market are Agilent Technologies, Bruker Nano, Hitachi High-Tech Science Corporation (buy-out of SII Nanotechnology), NT-MDT, Oxford Instruments (buy-out of Asylum Research and Omicron Nanotechnology) and Park Systems.
