Overview of the microscopy market in Europe
Technavio’s market research analyst predicts that the microscopy market in Europe will grow steadily at a CAGR of more than 6% during the forecast period. Nanotechnology research has witnessed immense growth in Europe over the years. It is the study of particles that are between one to 100 nanometers in size and cannot be studied using optical microscopes. As a result, vendors have introduced advanced microscopes such as scanning probe microscopes and electron microscopes like SEM and TEM that cater to the demand of studying nanoscale objects. The need for better imaging of nanoparticles has created the demand for atomic force microscope products, resulting in investments by government and technology firms in the development of nanotechnology. Through the NNI program, the US has invested more than USD 22 billion in the nanotechnology research program. Similarly, other countries like Japan, China, the UK, and Canada, have also invested significantly in nanotechnology, which will, in turn, drive this market’s growth in the coming years.
One of the main trends spurring the growth prospects for this market in Europe is the miniaturization of electronic devices by vendors using microelectromechanical systems (MEMSs) and nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMSs) that consume less power. Due to the emergence of miniaturized personal electronic products, semiconductor industries are attempting to incorporate different features, reduce the size of semiconductor wafers, and lower IC power consumption. Furthermore, some companies are using NEMS technology to manufacture paper
Global outlook of the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) market
According to the market research analysts at Technavio, the global polymerase chain reaction (PCR) market will grow rapidly and will post a CAGR of more than 8% over the forecast period. PCR has extensive applications in various fields including diagnosis of infectious diseases, in forensics, and various other biologicals purposes. It is primarily used in the diagnosis of diseases, such as middle ear infections, tuberculosis, and Lyme diseases. In the recent years, PCR has also been vastly used in forensic applications like DNA fingerprinting to identify a particular person accurately and quickly. Moreover, various molecular research applications, such as DNA sequencing, DNA cloning, and gene expression also use the polymerase chain reaction. With the significant increase in funding and grants offered by various global bodies to develop new solutions in different fields, the market for PCR solutions, including instruments and consumables will have a positive impact in the coming years.
In the recent years, many manufacturers of PCR solutions have either established or have expanded their current manufacturing and sales networks in APAC. The APAC region has a rising geriatric population, which will translate into the increasing incidences of chronic diseases like cancer, and PCR is extensively used to study and analyze gene anomalies and mutations associated with such diseases. Moreover, the vendors are migrating their manufacturing facilities to APAC as it is not only economical in terms of operations but also gives them access to the domestic markets in the region.

Overview of the mortuary equipment market
According to the market research analysts at Technavio, the global mortuary equipment market will grow at a CAGR of more than 5% during the forecast period. The commercialization of mortuary equipment due to the growing demand for cadavers is one of the primary drivers that is gaining momentum in the market. Legal proceedings and forensic procedures have led several manufacturers to introduce equipment and tools that are specific for storing, transporting, or carrying out autopsy of corpses. Moreover, the rising number of road accidents and work-related accidents have resulted in the need for better transportation and handling of bodies. This has compelled the manufacturers to design novel and innovative products.
The global mortuary equipment market was led by the Americas in 2015, accounting for more than 36% share of the overall revenue of the market. The Americas dominated this market due to the implementation of guidelines and regulations that highlight the importance of well-equipped mortuary facilities. These strict regulations have led to the increase in installation and use of several mortuary equipment in hospitals, research laboratories, and funeral homes.
