Research and Markets: The Global Electron Microscope Market to Grow At A CAGR Of 15 Percent over the Period 2011-2015
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/flz5xj/global_electron) has announced the addition of the "Global Electron Microscope Market 2011-2015 - Survey" report to their offering.
One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing demand for effective failure analysis. The Global Electron Microscope market has also been witnessing a demand for advanced technologies in the Biomedical industry. However, the effect of global economic fluctuations could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.
The key vendors dominating this market space are FEI Co., Hitachi High-Technologies Corp., JEOL Ltd., and Carl Zeiss MicroImaging GmbH.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio's Hardware team said: 'Earlier, optical microscopes were replaced to some extent by electron microscopes to conduct analyses at very high resolutions, such as 0.1 nm or below. Lately, both customers and vendors have been focusing on the development of greater effectiveness through the fusion of electron microscopes with analytical instruments. This effort will enable the customers to analyze a captured image or information through analytical instruments integrated in the electron microscope.'
According to the report, the advances in the Semiconductor and Embedded industries have led to a high degree of complexity in the hardware and manufacturing of integrated circuits (ICs) and printed circuit boards (PCBs). To support high-end applications, chip and board designers and manufacturers are developing high-density products. An optical microscope is less useful when it comes to densely packaged ICs in PCBs because it has limitations in terms of magnification due to the wavelength of light. As a result, an electron microscope is required to observe and analyze the error points that could cause failures in densely packed chips and PCBs.
Further, the report reveals that the high cost of electron microscopes is slowing their penetration in the emerging markets.
