Confocal microscope is a special form of standard fluorescence microscope that uses particular optical components to generate high-resolution images of material stained with fluorescent probes. Confocal microscopy is different from the conventional wide field fluorescence microscopy, in which the optical path is designed to place in front of the image detector (photomultiplier tube or camera), and an aperture (opening) at a point where the image is focused in conjunction with the focal plane of the image.

To arrive at the market size, bottom-up approach is used to validate the total market size obtained for the confocal microscope market. The forecast presented in the report provides total revenue of the confocal microscope market over 2018–2028. PMR has used a triangulation methodology that is primarily based on experimental techniques, such as installed base data to obtain precise market estimations for confocal microscope market and insights on specific country/regions. The country-specific data is again analyzed to derive data at a regional level and then at the global level. This methodology ensures high quality and accuracy of information.
The factors considered while developing the estimates of the confocal microscope market are percentage adoption of different confocal microscope, total number of installed base, replacement rate for different confocal microscope and average life span of the microscope.
The average selling price (US$) is derived by using weighted average pricing methodology.
On the other hand, PMR has also analyzed the confocal microscope market by considering the revenue from the key players operating in a segment. The key players are segmented at the tier level with respect to their revenue, product portfolio and geographical presence. This process involves analysis of various annual reports of companies, investor presentations, SEC filings, 10k reports, earning call transcripts and press releases. This task is done to fetch substantial information about the key players, their respective revenues and estimate their respective market share.
Revenue growth of the key market players is analyzed over the historical period and qualitative assessment of installed base and adoption rate of various confocal microscope has been made in order to validate and align the resultant market numbers. The market structure is closely studied and analyzed at the regional level to map and ascertain incremental $ opportunity for companies, for instance, supply from domestic/regional players, small-scale enterprises or unorganized segments is also taken into consideration to arrive at the final market numbers.
While forecasting the size of the confocal microscope market, we have considered the impact of several factors such as per capital healthcare expenditure, disposable income, number of hospitals and academic research institute and percentage adoption of confocal microscope in different end user segment across all regions, etc. However, quantifying the market across the aforementioned segments and regions is more a matter of quantifying expectations and identifying opportunities rather than rationalizing them after the forecast has been completed.
