The World Market for Scanning Electron Microscopes
World market sales for SEMs in 2010 were approximately $132.56 million. In line with the economic downturn and the conditions in the semiconductors capital equipment market there has been a reduction in sales since 2007-2008. However there is still a requirement for high-resolution scanning electron microscopes as material development and processing technologies continue to be downsized.More Details
Scanning electron microscopes meet broad-ranging demand not only in research and development in the latest nanotechnology fields but also for material verification, evaluation, fault analysis, and quality control. Vendors focus on providing advanced systems with special sampling handling capabilities in order to enable analysis of living cells. There is a huge demand for such systems with special environmental chambers from the biological and life sciences industries.
In addition, the market has witnessed significant demand for integrated systems and custom solutions that provide additional capabilities to suit the needs of specific end-user applications, particularly from customers involved in core research activities.
