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 Micrscopy
- Surface Analyzers
With an expected average growth rate of 4.9% from 2017 to 2022.
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. Electron microscopy is growing a bit more rapidly, boosted by solid investment from the semiconductor and electronics industry, and growing research applications in the life sciences for what had previously been a very industrial technique
This section contains a more summary overview of the listed technologies. For a more in-depth look at each technology’s market, we recommend purchasing the Surface Science Section from our 2017 Global Assessment report.
