Report : South America Microscope Market Forecast to 2028 – COVID-19 Impact and Regional Analysis – by Product Type [Optical Microscope (Confocal Microscope, Stereo Microscope, Digital Microscope, and Others), Electron Microscope (Scanning Electron Microscope and Transmission Microscope), and Others], Application (Material Science, Nanotechnology, Life Sciences, Semiconductors, and Others), and End User (Industries, Academic & Research Institutes, and Others)

At 6.6% CAGR, the South America Microscope Market is speculated to be worth US$ 1,105.00 million by 2028, says Business Market Insights

According to Business Market Insights’ research, the South America microscope market was valued at US$ 753.33 million in 2022 and is expected to reach US$ 1,105.00 million by 2028, registering a CAGR of 6.6% from 2022 to 2028. Integration of deep learning and growing range of applications of microscope are the critical factors attributed to the South America microscope market expansion.

The use of microscope is increasing in various research activities across many domains, including life science and semiconductors. For instance, Cryo-electron microscopy is used to determine the 3D structure of complex macromolecules at subnanometer resolution and observe helical and 2D crystalline specimens. Moreover, these microscopes are also being utilized to achieve near-atomic resolution, which has been instrumental in studying the biological functions of different molecules in atomic detail. Upright microscopes, stereo microscopes, inverted microscopes, super resolution microscopes, and research macro zoom microscopes manufactured by Olympus are used for training, research laboratories, and life-science fields such as pathology and cytology.  Further, a scanning electron microscope is used in the semiconductor industry to inspect the quality of components and devices as per standards. Wafer metrology is being increasingly used in semi-conductor applications. Wafer metrology is an important component of successful Pathfinding and Yield Ramp for the modern Semiconductor Fab. The critical dimensions of <5nm are being used commonly on bleeding edge semiconductor technologies and semiconductor companies need high repeatability and reproducibility of measurements to ensure proper feedback in the yield learning process flow. The increased demand for applications in the semiconductor and microelectronics industry is driving the South America microscope market.

On the contrary, high price of advanced microscope hurdles the growth of South America microscope market.
