Global Optical Microscope Market 2016-2020
About Optical Microscope
An optical microscope, commonly known as a light microscope, is a standard technical device used by scientists in life sciences as well as material sciences for magnifying images of small objects. It uses visible light and a combination of optical lenses like converging lenses and concave mirrors to produce an image of an object. Optical microscopes are the oldest type of microscopes in which images are captured by a normal light-sensitive camera using a photographic film. In recent times, several types of optical microscopes that use digital cameras and detectors to obtain high-resolution digital images of the specimen under observation have been developed.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global optical microscope market to grow at a CAGR of 7.12% during the period 2016-2020.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Optical Microscope Market 2016-2020
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Optical Microscope Market: Carl Zeiss, Leica Microsystems, Meiji Techno, Nikon, and Oympus Corp.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: 3B Scientific, ACCU SCOPE, Ample Scientific, AmScope, Aven, BARSKA, BestScope, Bruker, Bulbtronics, Celestron, Cole-Parmer, Euromex, Huvitz, Ken-A-Vision, Parco Scientific, Magnus Analytics, Motic, Swift Opticals, Thermo Fisher Scientific, and Thomas Scientific.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “New production techniques have led to easier manufacture and assembly of optical microscopes during the recent years. New plastic molding techniques coupled with advanced optics fabrication methods will not only reduce the overall manufacturing cost but will also increase the durability of the instrument. The number of components has also seen a decrease over the years with the help of efficient modular production techniques.”
According to the report, various global initiatives such as the UN Global Education First Initiative aimed at ensuring that the promotion of education at the global level has not only succeeded in allocating funds for the development of education in several countries but also initiated methods to improve the quality of education provided. This has led to the increase in the number of educational institutions in several countries during the past five years.
Further, the report states that the major challenge inhibiting the growth of the global optical microscope market is the low frequency of repurchase of these devices.
