Market Overview:

The global light microscopes market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth in this market can be attributed to the increasing demand for light microscopes in hospitals, schools, and laboratories across the globe. Additionally, technological advancements in light microscopes are also contributing to the growth of this market. On the basis of type, monocular microscopes held a major share of the global light microscope market in 2017 and are expected to continue its dominance during the forecast period as well. This can be attributed to their low cost and easy portability as compared with binocular or trinocular microscopes.

Global Light Microscopes Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A light microscope is an instrument that uses visible light to examine objects that are too small to be seen with the naked eye. Light microscopes are used in a wide range of scientific disciplines, including biology, medicine, and geology.


Monocular microscopes are instruments that provide a single image at a time, they have one lens for viewing and focusing. The light from the subject is projected onto the retina via optical fiber or onto the camera lucida. Monocular microscopes were preferred over binocular because of its ease of use and cost effectiveness, it can be used by people with no experience in using microscope as well as experts.


Binocular microscopes are instruments that use two lenses to provide a magnified image. The magnification can be adjusted by changing the distance between the lenses. Binocular microscopes are widely used in medical, dental and veterinary fields for diagnosis of diseases, infections and other micro-organisms. It is also used in research activities for study of cells, tissues & organisms at higher magnification levels without disturbing their normal structure.

Application Insights:

The market is categorized on the basis of application into hospital, school, and laboratory. The hospital segment dominated the global light microscopes market in 2017 owing to increasing demand for advanced diagnostic devices at a lower cost. This can be attributed to growing geriatric population and rising number of cancer cases globally. According to WHO, around 24% of people aged 60 years or above were diagnosed with some form of cancer in 2015 across the world. Rising awareness about early diagnosis coupled with availability of advanced treatment options is anticipated to boost product demand over the forecast period.

The school segment accounted for 22% share in 2017 due largely to government initiatives encouraging students and teachers from primary level through secondary level education institutions across various countries including China, India Japan Korea Singapore Malaysia Philippines Thailand Vietnam Indonesia etc., use microscopes as part-time jobs during vacations help develop interest among students regarding science & technology related subjects thus boosting industry growth over the forecast period (2017 - 2030).

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global light microscopes market in 2017 owing to the presence of a large number of local players and increased government funding for medical education. The region is expected to maintain its dominance over the forecast period due to increasing R&D activities related to microscopy in this region. Asia Pacific is anticipated to witness lucrative growth during the forecast period owing rising awareness about diseases and improved healthcare infrastructure in developing economies such as India, China, Indonesia, Malaysia & Vietnam. Moreover, increasing investments by international companies are also contributing towards regional growth.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for accurate and fast diagnosis in the medical sector is expected to drive the growth of light microscopes market.
  • Rising prevalence of infectious diseases and other health conditions is also anticipated to fuel the demand for light microscopes over the forecast period.
  • Technological advancements in microscope design and development are projected to create new opportunities for market players in light microscopes market during forecast period.
  • Growing research activities in life sciences sector is expected to propel the growth of light microscopes market over next few years
