The global electron microscope market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.2% during the period 2016-2020.
Vendors in the market are focusing on manufacturing miniaturized personal electronic products using microelectromechanical systems (MEMSs) and nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMSs) that consume less power. In line with the emergence of miniaturized personal electronic products, semiconductor foundries are looking to integrate different features, reduce the size of semiconductor wafers, and lower IC power consumption.
According to the report, Advances in the semiconductor and embedded industries have resulted in a high degree of complexity in the designing and production of ICs and printed circuit boards (PCBs). Often, the failure of a product in terms of strength and other features occurs at the micro level. Finding the root cause of product failures allows firms to work on the faulty area to improve productivity and efficiency. Root-cause failure analysis is used in a range of industries, such as manufacturing and automotive, and in the 3D construction of biological structures like proteins and viruses. Such applications are likely to continue rising in demand, thereby increasing the demand for electron microscopes.
Further, the report states that the market faces challenges such as the high cost of electron microscopes and long lead times, which affect vendors' profitability. These challenges have placed vendors at high risk, as the capital investment and time spent on R&D is extensive.
