The Surface Science market includes instruments involved in analyzing and observing the chemical and physical surface properties of a material, with this report focusing primarily on the the use of various microscopy techniques. This report includes market size and growth data on the following technologies and instruments:
- Optical Microscopy
- Electron Microscopy
- Confocal & Advanced Microscopy
- Scanning Probe Microscopy
- Surface Analyzers
With an expected average growth rate of 5.3% from 2018 to 2023.
Two of the markets, optical microscopy and electron microscopy, are each multibillion dollar markets. Optical microscopy is the largest, making up nearly half of the total surface science market. Optical microscopes have the broadest possible applications, and are ubiquitous in laboratories of every type and industrial setting. The relatively saturated nature of the market restricts growth, but the market is still expanding. Confocal and advanced microscopy along with scanning probe microscopes are projected to be the fastest growing surface science instruments over the next five years. These are widely used in academic research as well as in the pharma/bio and semiconductor industries and increasing demand will benefit instrument sales.
