Global Transmission Electron Microscope Market 2017-2021
About Transmission Electron Microscope
Microscopes were invented to look at objects which could not be seen by naked human eye. It was claimed to be invented by Hans Lippershey, a German scientist, in the 1590s. The capacity of a microscope is limited by the wavelength of the light used to see the object. The human eye can see objects of size up to 0.2mm. Electron microscopes are broadly categorized as TEM and SEM. This report covers the market size, growth opportunities, challenges, and trend of the global TEM market. TEMs use a beam of electrons that are transmitted through an ultra-thin specimen, which then interact with the specimen as they pass through it. From the interaction, an image is formed, which is then magnified and focused on a fluorescent screen upon a layer of photographic film, for getting detected by a sensor; for example, a charge-coupled device.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global transmission electron microscope market to grow at a CAGR of 8.56% during the period 2017-2021.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global transmission electron microscope market for 2017-2021. To calculate the market size, the report considers the sales market and do not include sales from the components used in the manufacture of TEM.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Transmission Electron Microscope Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global transmission electron microscope market: JEOL, Thermo Fisher Scientific, Hitachi High-Technologies, and Delong America.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Development of newer forms of TEMs. As TEMs can present 2D images of the specimen, there is a limit to the size of the specimen that has to be viewed. Newer models of TEMs combine the features of both TEM as well as SEM. Nion, a prominent vendor in the TEM market, used to manufacture the second generation spherical aberration corrector for TEM, which has shifted to exclusively manufacturing STEMs due to its high advantages over TEM.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Increasing focus on nanotechnology. Nanotechnology involves working with materials having a size ranging from 1 to 100 nanometers. Advancement and improvement in the field of nanotechnology require working at atomic and molecular levels, for which TEMs or other electron microscopes are required, which have the capacity to see materials at a nanolevel.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is complicated and time-consuming sample preparation process. For preparing the sample to be observed, many complicated steps are involved. The first stage in preparing is the fixation, where the sample needs to be fixed in a manner that the ultrastructure of the cells or tissues remains close to the living material. Then, the sample is dehydrated through an acetone or ethanol series, passed through a transition solvent like propylene oxide and then infiltrated and embedded in a liquid resin such as epoxy and LR white resin.
