Microscopy devices enjoy a widespread application in the field of life sciences. These devices allow researchers to obtain images of synapses, neurons, and cell structures, thus assisting them in research and innovations. These devices also find application in academic institutes for primary research studies. The rising number of contract research organizations in emerging economies for clinical research is fueling the demand for these devices significantly.

In this report, the global life science microscopy devices market has been analyzed on the basis of the type of device, application, and region. Based on the type of device, the market has been classified into optical microscopes, electron microscopes, scanning probe microscopes. The optical microscopes segment dominated the worldwide market in 2013 with a share of more than 40%.  The low cost of optical microscopes and the ease of operating these microscopes offer are the key factors that have been driving this segment over the past few years.

On the other hand, the transmission electron microscopes segment is likely to register rapid growth during the forecast period. The increasing usage of these microscopes in advance life science research, such as drug toxicity, neuroscience, and cell mechanism in the diseased condition, is expected to boost this segment in the coming years.

The research report further categorizes the optical microscopes segment into near field scanning microscopes, confocal scanning microscopes, stereo microscopes, fluorescence microscopes, phase contrast microscopes, inverted microscopes, and other optical microscopes.

The electron microscopes segment has been classified into transmission electron microscopes and scanning electron microscopes. Atomic force microscopes and scanning tunneling microscopes have been identified as the key components of the scanning probe microscopes segment.

The report identifies clinical/pathology, cell biology¸ biomedical engineering, neuroscience, and pharmacology and toxicology as the key application areas for life science microscopy devices.

Regionally, the worldwide market for life science microscopy devices has been segmented into North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, and the Rest of the World. North America dominated the overall market in 2013. However, Asia Pacific and Latin America are likely to register the highest growth rate during the forecast period owing to the rising number of contract research organizations in these regions, states the research study.

Olympus Corp., Nikon Corp., NT-MDT Co., Leica Microsystems GmbH, Keysight Technologies Inc., JEOL Ltd., Hitachi High-Technologies Corp., FEI Co., Danish Micro Engineering A/S, Carl Zeiss AG, Cameca SAS, and Bruker Corp. are the prime international manufacturers of science microscopy devices mentioned in this study.
