Desktop Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) Market Size

The global desktop scanning electron microscope (SEM) market is projected to grow at a CAGR value of 8.7% between 2021 to 2026. The growing investment in research activities to develop novel nanomaterials and nanotechnology-based products has been instrumental to the growth of the SEM market. The electronics industry has witnessed devices becoming smaller and smaller leading to even greater demand for smaller components. Among these components, chips and semiconductor devices have become increasingly microscopic in size. The pharmaceuticals industry and the medical devices industry have also begun increasing their investment in the research and development of bio-active nanomaterials.

The semiconductor industry’s utilization of lithography chip manufacturing techniques such as electron-beam lithography has increased the demand for surface mapping of wafers for quality assurance. Scanning electron microscopes are becoming commonly used in inspection systems in the semiconductor industry to detect wafer defects. They are also used in the fabrication process to study the impact of new fabrication and production techniques.

The pharmaceuticals industry has been using these microscopes to test samples, test new vaccinations and medicines, identify diseases and bacteria, and various other topology, morphology, and composition studies. The high-resolution images provided by scanning electron microscopes have slowly become vital in the development of novel biomaterials such as drug delivery systems, nanomaterial-based implants, and other materials.

In material science research, these microscopes are used in the study of nanotubes, nanofibres, high-temperature superconductors, and mesoporous architectures and alloy strength of nanomaterials.

The high cost of conventional scanning electron microscopes has often limited their application in various industries other than for research purposes. The advent of desktop or tabletop scanning electron microscopes has played a vital role in the growing adoption of SEMs for various applications. Criminal investigators have also begun utilizing these microscopes for forensic investigations for gunshot residue analysis, bullet marking comparisons, fibre analysis, and various other applications where high-resolution imaging is applicable. The portability of these desktop units has made it possible for industries to create moving laboratories for quality assurance and inspection purposes. Desktop SEMs are relatively more user friendly, easier to transport and store, faster data collection and characterization, and are more cost-effective than their bulky counterparts.

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused various disruptions in the working of various manufacturing and research activities of various industries. The falling revenue has seen industries become cautious in implementing new instruments and upgrading older systems which have had a negative impact on the market. The increased focus on medical science research and the need for novel medicines and vaccines are expected to have a positive impact on the market during the forecast period.

The market is restrained by the cost of these devices, complexities in sample preparation, maintenance costs, and the need for skilled professionals to run these microscopes.
