Scanning Electron Microscope Market: Key Drivers and Trends

  • The increasing focus on nanotechnology is a significant factor driving the growth of the scanning electron microscope market size.
  • The rising demand for the miniaturization of products coupled with the increased consumer demand for smaller and more powerful devices at low prices has increased the popularity of nanotechnology in several industries.
  • This technology is already being employed in different sectors, such as clothing, fertilizers, tires, and cosmetics.
  • The applications of nanotechnology, particularly in healthcare diagnostics, allow quick diagnostic processes. This further supports the key goal of diagnostics to detect a medical problem in a minimum period.
  • Critical scanning electron microscope market trends, such as the increased demand for LVEMs, will also drive the growth of the market.
  • Unlike general-purpose SEMs, low-voltage electron microscopes (LVEMs) make use of a decelerating electron beam system and function at a reduced voltage of fewer than 25 kilovolts, contrasting to the 100 kilovolts by high-voltage electron microscopes (HVEMs).
  • One of the major advantages of functioning at a low voltage is that the device can be used as a tabletop or desktop electron microscope, and it can be installed in any laboratory, which requires an electron microscope.
  • Using HVEMs for specimens such as polymers, composite materials, pigments, minerals, cells, and membranes increases the accumulation of electrons in the samples and damages the specimen owing to high radiation.
