About Microscope Accessories
Microscope accessories are complementary parts of a microscope and function as an extension of the device to enhance its performance and accuracy. These accessories may range from simple adapters and filters to complex lenses and detectors. They differ vastly, depending on the type of microscopy device. An optical microscope usually requires accessories such as cover slides and objective lenses, whereas a scanning probe microscope will require more expensive accessories such as detectors, light sources, and cameras.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global microscope accessories market to grow at a CAGR of 5.92% during the period 2016-2020.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global microscope accessories market for 2016-2020. The market size was calculated from the revenue generated by the accessories market for different devices in this product category.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Microscope Accessories Market 2016-2020
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global microscope accessories market: Bruker, Carl Zeiss, Leica Microsystems, PerkinElmer, and Thermo Fisher Scientific.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: 3B Scientific, AmScope, AnMo Electronics, Barska, Bulbtronics, Celestron, Cole-Parmer, Euromex, Meiji Techno, Motic, Navitar, and Thomas Scientific.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One of the key trends for market growth will be focus on super-resolution microscopy. The research in neuroscience relies heavily on advances in microscopy, for example, in vivo brain imaging, which has revolutionized the understanding of neurological dysfunctions and mechanisms. Oncology research is another important area where complex imaging methods that do not use markers, like coherent anti-stokes Raman spectroscopy (CARS), are enabling new research. Super-resolution microscopy, near-field optical microspectroscopy, label-free nanoscale chemical imaging, and AFM-Raman are the leading techniques in the field of nanoscale chemical imaging and are improving in flexibility and resolution every year.”
According to the report, growth of microscopy devices market will be a key driver for market growth. The global microscopy devices market is expected to exhibit robust growth during the forecast period, growing at a CAGR of over 7.91%. The market will be driven by the requirement for high-resolution devices, especially in nanotechnology, and increased emphasis on research and design at the molecular level. The scanning probe microscopy devices market was the fastest growing segment in 2015, which is likely to grow at a CAGR of 9.76% during the forecast period. The growth of the microscopy devices market will be one of the major drivers for the growth of the microscopy accessories market over the forecast period.
Further, the report states that limited resolution and accuracy at nanoscale will be a challenge for the market. With nanotechnology-led innovations in several industries, the ability to manipulate matter at the nanoscale and study their properties becomes more important. Today, the challenge for microscopy and data processing techniques is to go label-free and advance to a smaller scale. Labels are a big issue because they interfere with real interactions. Raman spectroscopy is a label-free technique, but there are several different compounds within a cell that still make it difficult to comprehend the data collected. Advanced processing techniques such as multivariate analysis allow more accuracy.
