Atomic Force Microscopy Market by Offering, Grade, Application & Forecast [2021-2026]

Chicago, April 07, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Atomic Force Microscopy Market  by Offering, Grade (Industrial, Research), Application (Material Science, Life Sciences, Semiconductors and Electronics, Academics), and Region, 2026, Atomic force microscopy is an imaging technique for studying samples by generating images at an ultra-high resolution. It is an empowered technology that is vital for the measurements of minute samples with a substantial degree of accuracy. Currently, a collaboration between government-sponsored researchers and private firms is becoming vitally important for the commercialization of nanotechnology. Most nanotechnology labs use atomic force microscopes because they are easy to use and enable manufacturing of improved materials and reliable products, thereby augmenting the growth of the atomic force microscopy market.

Market for industrial grade AFMs to grow at higher CAGR during the forecast period

The industrial grade atomic force microscopy market is expected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period. This is because industrial grade AFM are more in demand owing to their high precision in detecting and visualizing even the smallest surface structures compared to research grade AFM. Industrial grade AFM can detect and visualize even the smallest surface structures that elevate the product analysis to the next level. One of the best examples of this is the utilization of AFM in quality control and imaging for silicon-integrated circuits in the semiconductor industry.

Market in APAC to grow at highest CAGR during the forecast period

The atomic force microscopy market in APAC, particularly in China, Japan, and India, is expected to witness high growth in the next 5 years. 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 a lower cost, are other factors supporting the market growth in APAC.
