Please note the purchase selections above: You may select either the entire Surface Science section ($7,500) or any of the individual Market Briefs within ($2,750 each).
The Surface Science market includes instruments involved in imaging samples at the micro or nano level, and potentially analyzing their chemical and physical properties. These products range from standard optical microscopes to highly sophisticated systems based on ion optics in ultra high vacuum environments. 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
Two of the markets, optical microscopy and electron microscopy, are each multibillion dollar markets. 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, particularly for more sophisticated systems. In particular, confocal and other advanced microscopy techniques are expected to see the most growth over the forecast period. These are widely used in academic research as well as in the pharma/bio and semiconductor industries and increasing demand will benefit instrument sales.
