DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Atomic Force Microscopy Market (AFM) by Offering (AFM, Probes, Software), Grade (Industrial Grade, Research Grade), Applications (Materials Science, Life Sciences, Semiconductor & Electronics, Academics), and Region - Global Forecast to 2024" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
The Global Atomic Force Microscopy Market Was Valued at USD 441 Million in 2019 and is Projected to Reach USD 586 Million By 2024; it is Expected to Grow at a CAGR of 5.8%
One of the key drivers of atomic force microscopy is the committed support from several governments to promote nanotechnology and nanoscience research and development. Also, the high demand for 3D ICs from the semiconductor and electronics industry is expected to lay new growth opportunity for the atomic force microscopy market during the forecast period.
Probes to grow at the highest CAGR between 2019 and 2024
The market for probes is expected to grow at the highest CAGR. Probes play a dominant role in the AFM market, in terms of volume, as the lifecycle of probes is shorter than the complete atomic force microscope, thereby leading to a higher requirement for probes than AFM.
Industrial grade AFMs to grow at the fastest rate for atomic force microscopy
Industrial grade is expected to grow at a significant rate between 2019 and 2024. There is a great importance of high-quality images to detect defects in miniaturized products. Hence, industrial-grade AFM are more in demand owing to their high precision in detecting and visualizing even the smallest surface structures and defects in nanomaterials.
Semiconductors and electronics market to offer a lucrative opportunity for atomic force microscopy applications
Semiconductors and electronics are expected to grow at the highest rate. The semiconductor industry is one of the major industries using advanced microscopes such as transmission electron microscopes, atomic force microscopes, 3D optical microscopes, and confocal microscopes. AFM is used extensively in the semiconductor industry for R&D, quality control (QC), monitoring process development, and failure analysis. The growing demand for miniature transistor chips, nanoelectronics, quantum dots, and optoelectronics is the key factor surging the demand for microscopes in the semiconductor industry.
APAC continues to grow significantly for the atomic force microscopy market
APAC atomic force microscopy market is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The growth of the atomic force microscopy market can be attributed to the growing R&D funding for the development of microscopes, increasing nanotechnology research, and growing expertise and academic excellence, along with the availability of nanomaterials at lower costs.
The major players in Atomic force microscopy market are Bruker (US), Park Systems (South Korea), Hitachi (Japan), Horiba (Japan), Oxford Instruments (UK), Nanosurf (Switzerland), WITec (Germany), NT-MDT (Russia), NanoMagnetics Instruments (UK), Nanonics Imaging (Israel).
