Impact Analysis of Covid-19
The complete version of the Report will include the impact of the COVID-19, and anticipated change on the future outlook of the industry, by taking into the account the political, economic, social, and technological parameters.
Optical microscopes, electron microscopes, and scanning probe microscopes are some of the types of microscopy devices used in the healthcare sector. Optical microscopes are further segmented into inverted microscopes, stereomicroscopes, phase contrast microscopes, confocal scanning microscopes, near field scanning microscopes and other optical microscopes.
The global microscopy devices market is estimated to account for US$ 17,130.4 Mn in terms of value by the end of 2027.
Global Microscopy Devices Market: Drivers
Approval and launch of new devices is expected to propel growth of the global microscopy devices market over the forecast period. For instance, in May 2018, Tomey USA received the U.S. Food and Drug Administration clearance of its EM-4000 Specular Microscope, which features Core method to count cells and can output data and images to a EHR server or standalone computer.
Moreover, increasing prevalence of ocular disorders is also expected to aid in growth of the market. For instance, according to National Eye Institute’s projections, the number of people in the U.S. with cataract is expected to reach 50 million in 2050.
Asia Pacific held dominant position in the global microscopy devices market in 2019, accounting for 33.0% share in terms of value, followed by North America and Europe, respectively

Global Microscopy Devices Market: Restraints
Light microscopes are complex and house numerous fine-tuned lenses with tightly controlled dimensions. These microscopes require special and complex sample preparation techniques or the samples either get destroyed or structurally altered when viewed. Such scenario is expected to hinder growth of the market.
Moreover, high cost of microscopy devices is also expected to limit the market growth. For instance, Helios NanoLab Dual Beam SEM from FEI Company sells at US$ 2.2 million, Libra 200 TEM from Zeiss is priced at US$ 2.5 million, and Titan G2 80-200 scanning transmission electron microscope (S/TEM) at US$ 12.8 million.
