Electron Microscope Sample Preparation Market worth over $740mn by 2027

  • Published Date: September 28, 2021

Electron Microscope Sample Preparation Market size is set to surpass USD 740 million by 2027, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.

Growing life sciences industry will be a major factor contributing to the market growth. Rising pervasiveness of several chronic and infectious diseases has impelled the healthcare industry to rapidly drive research activities and product development. Hence, government is spending robustly on the healthcare sector to assist in investigating treatment therapies for wide range of diseases.


Advances in microscopy techniques will foster the demand for electronic microscope (EM) sample preparation equipment. Cryo-electron microscopy allows offers high-resolution imaging of the specimen. Further, cryo-EM enables visualization of structures and molecules in three dimension (3D). Moreover, increasing focus of market payers including Leica Microsystems to develop innovative products will fuel the industry growth in the coming years.

Increasing spending on research activities in developed and developing countries will positively impact the market expansion

Growing focus on research activities by life sciences companies will provide ample market progression opportunities. In July 2021, UMass Medical School got funding for around USD 2.8 mn for cryo-electron microscopy from Thermo Fisher Scientific. The research institutes backed by such grants will augment customer base of the existing market players. Further, rising incidence of novel diseases will stimulate need for in-depth investigation, thereby eventually impacting demand for electron microscopy and its equipment. However, recent COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the demand-supply and purchasing power and negatively impacted the industry size.

Benefits offered by transmission electron microscopy will accelerate adoption rate

Transmission electron microscope (TEM) segment is expected to witness 6.6% growth rate through 2027. Broad array of applications in life sciences research among other sectors will impel the segment growth. Additionally, innovations in TEM enable visualization of comprehensive elemental structures.

Growing application of ion milling in semiconductor and material sciences will influence the product demand

Ion milling equipment segment held 20% of revenue share in 2020. Ion milling equipment are primarily used for hard surfaces including metals, semiconductors, bones etc. Hence, growing material sciences industry and orthopedic applications will augment the segment size. However, high device cost can limit the segment expansion.
