Global Scanning Electron Microscopes Market to Reach US$ 6.8 Billion by 2028, Impelled by Increasing Number of Laboratories in Academic Institutes

March 23, 2023 | Electronics and Semiconductors

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Scanning Electron Microscopes Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity, and Forecast 2023-2028," the global scanning electron microscopes market reached a value of US$ 4.2 Billion in 2022. Scanning electron microscopes (SEMs) are a type of electron microscope that utilizes a focused beam of high-energy electrons to generate various signals at the surface of solid specimens. It is vital in all fields that require the characterization of solid materials. It is easy to operate, with user-friendly and intuitive interfaces. It detects various signals, of which secondary electrons (SEs) and backscattered electrons (BSEs) are the primary electrons used in biological and biomedical research. It has contributed extensively to elucidating the ultrastructure of bio-specimens in three dimensions. It uses focused beams of electrons to render high-resolution, three-dimensional images. Scanning electron microscopes are widely used for industrial, commercial, and research applications. From forensic applications to fabrication processes, there's a diverse range of applications for modern SEM. In material science, SEM is used for research, quality control, and failure analysis. It is also used in semiconductor inspection by creating high-resolution 3D images which offer a speedy, accurate measurement of the semiconductor composition. Criminal and other forensic investigations employ these microscopes to uncover evidence and gain further forensic insight.

Global Scanning Electron Microscopes Market Trends:

The global market is majorly driven by the increasing demand for nanotechnology-based research.
