According to the latest market report published by Persistence Market Research titled ‘Global Confocal Microscope Market: Global Industry Analysis 2013 – 2017 and Forecast, 2018 – 2028,’ the global confocal microscope market is projected to reach US$ 1,310.5 Mn by the end of 2028 and grow at a CAGR of 3.3% during the forecast period.
Global Confocal Microscope Market: Dynamics
Confocal microscope is a special form of standard fluorescence microscope. 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.
Government policies and funding for biological research activities and shift towards value-based care are the major factors expected to drive the growth of the market for confocal microscope over the forecast period. Furthermore, increasing number of research and development activities and technological advancement in microscopy are the other factors expected to spur the growth of the market for confocal microscope over the forecast period.
Increasing spending on research & development and emergence of academia as the primary organization for carrying out basic research will further increase the adoption rate of confocal microscope. Likewise, use of confocal microscope for live cell imaging and confocal microscopy in ophthalmology is also expected to drive the growth of the market for confocal microscope.
However, high cost of technologically advanced microscopes and shortage of skilled professionals and expertise are expected to hamper the growth of the Confocal Microscope market.
