Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) has gained popularity in identifying and analysing the structure of various electronics and mechanical components across various industry verticals. This scanning process produces high magnification images that are used in wide range of industries which include semiconductor, material science, life science, manufacturing and others. Examination of specimens and samples with help of scanning electron microscope is much faster as compared to SPM, STM, AFM or other techniques, thus the market has higher adoption in different industries compared to other microscopic investigation methods.
The market is further classified based on end user vertical and geography. The report also comprises of the region wise study of the global market including Americas, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of the World. Based on end user industry, semiconductor industry is the dominant segment generating 44.5% of the total revenue in 2015. As a result of the numerous advances in the semiconductor industry, complexity level in the manufacturing of miniaturized ICs as well as the final product itself has increased considerably. As such, testing of these products in terms of composition is extremely vital to ensure significant life cycle of the product. Hence, semiconductor industry with respect to scanning electron microscope market is dramatically driven by the need of inspection and testing of miniaturized semiconductor material and devices.
According to IndustryARC analysis, APAC is the largest contributor to scanning electron microscope market with 37.9% of the total market share in 2015. APAC is estimated to be the fastest growing region with respect to the market due to increasing investments by the global companies to provide new opportunities in the field of nanotechnology, material science and life science. APAC is followed by Americas and Europe as the other leading market for scanning electron microscope.
