On the basis of type of product, the microscopy market is broadly segmented into optical microscopes, confocal microscopes, electron microscopes, and scanning probe microscopes. The optical microscopy segment is further divided into fluorescence microscopy (FM) and super-resolution microscopy.

The fluorescence microscopy segment is divided into total internal reflection fluorescence microscopy (TIRF), fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET), fluorescence recovery after photo-bleaching (FRAP), and fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopy (FLIM). The super-resolution microscopy is sub segmented into stochastic optical reconstruction microscopy (STORM), structured illumination microscopy (SIM), stimulated emission depletion microscopy (STED), coherent anti-strokes Raman scattering microscopy (CARS), photo-activated localization microscopy (PALM), and reversible saturable optical fluorescence transitions (RELSOFT).

The confocal microscopy is segmented into multi-photon microscopy and confocal disk spinning microscopy. Electron microscopy is segmented into transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM).

The scanning probe microscopy segment is further divided into scanning tunneling microscopy (STM), atomic force microscopy (AFM), and near-field scanning optical microscopy (NSOM). The optical microscopy segment accounted for the largest share 39.5% of the European microscopy market in 2014.


The microscopy applications market is categorized into semiconductors, life sciences, nanotechnology, and material science. In this market, Nanotechnology is the fastest growing application.

On the basis of end users, the microscopy market is classified into academic institutes, industries, and others (government research institutes and private laboratories). In this market, academic institutes are the major end users.

On the basis of geography, the microscopy market is segmented into U.K, Germany, France, Spain, Italy, The Netherlands, Sweden and Rest of Europe (RoE). In 2014, U.K accounted for the largest share of the microscopy market, followed by Germany.

Both markets are estimated to register single-digit growth rates over the next five years.

Major players operating in the European Microscopy Market are Carl Zeiss (Germany), Leica Microsystems (Danaher Corp.) (U.K.), Nikon Corporation (Japan), FEI Co. (U.S.)
