Global Beginner Microscope Market 2016-2020

About Beginner Microscope

A beginner microscope falls under the category of simple optical microscopes or magnifying toy microscopes and are used by students in primary and secondary schools. In comparison with compound microscopes, beginner microscopes are low power, low-cost instruments that have limited resolving power and application. The end-users of these microscopes are children in the age group of 6-12 years.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global beginner microscope market to grow at a CAGR of 4.37% during the period 2016-2020.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Beginner Microscope Market 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global beginner microscope market: AmScope, C & A Scientific, Celestron, Educational Insights, and Levenhuk.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Ample Scientific, Aven, BestScope International, Frey Scientific, Ken-A-Vision, LGS Microscopes, Parco Scientific Company, Phil Seltzer, and Radical Instruments.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Process innovation and advance techniques will be key trends for the market. New production techniques have made manufacturing and assembling beginner microscopes easy. Innovative plastic molding techniques, coupled with advanced optics fabrication methods reduce overall manufacturing costs and increase the durability of an instrument. Also, the number of components used to make a microscope has decreased with the help of efficient modular production techniques. These advancements will lead to more accurate and durable instruments, while maintaining the cost at a minimum.”

According to the report, availability of new learning aids will be a key driver for market growth. e-learning and other interactive activities have been gaining popularity over the last five years, with educators around the world emphasizing on the importance of practical education over books and theoretical learning. The use of beginner microscopes and similar instruments in primary and secondary schools allows a hands-on experience and an opportunity to apply the knowledge acquired. The success of interactive curricula has led to several countries such as Japan and Taiwan revising their existing curricula to ensure better learning. This has, in turn, resulted in high adoption of beginner microscopes.

Further, the report states that low frequency of repurchase will be a challenge for the market. The average cost of a beginner microscope is $150-$160 and it functions optimally for about four to six years. During this period, the instrument requires minimal maintenance. Given the relatively long life and high cost, chances for repurchase are considerably low. Though accessories such as slides, cover glasses, and even digital cables in some cases, maybe required over the life of an instrument, customers often opt for inexpensive third party providers for these products; the interaction with the original seller is thus limited to a one-time business transaction.
