Global Super-Resolution Microscope Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A Super-resolution microscope is a microscope that can magnify an image beyond the capabilities of a traditional optical microscope. By using advanced imaging techniques, such as structured illumination or fluorescence correlation spectroscopy, Super-resolution microscopes can produce images with much greater detail than is possible with a standard optical microscope. This increased detail allows scientists to study the structure and function of cells and tissues in much greater detail than ever before. The importance of Super-resolution microscopy lies in its ability to provide researchers with new insights into the inner workings of cells and tissues. With this knowledge, scientists may be able to develop new treatments for diseases that have heretofore been difficult to treat.


Super-resolution microscopy (SRM) is a technique that uses light of different wavelengths to generate images with higher resolution than the diffraction limit. The ability to observe molecular processes at resolutions previously unattainable has transformed the field of biological microscopy in recent years. Super-resolution imaging can be used for cell biology, developmental biology, disease modeling and treatment discovery as well as Materials Science.


Single-Slit Super-Resolution Microscopy (SSSR) and Single-Photon Emission Superresolution microscopy (SPSR) are two different techniques for super resolving a single light beam. Both the techniques use diffraction free optics to generate images with higher resolution than the wavelength of light. SPSR is an older technology, first implemented in a commercial product in 2008 while SSSR was introduced later in 2010 by researchers at Stanford University.

Application Insights:

Research labs and academia accounted for the largest share of over 50% in 2017. The life science segment is expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period owing to rising demand for super-resolution microscopes in medical research. For instance, researchers at University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) have used a super-resolution microscope to observe cellular processes occurring within living tissue at a molecular level. Such initiatives by key industry players are expected to boost market growth over the coming years.

The semi-conductor segment is also anticipated to witness lucrative growth during the forecast period owing to technological advancements and increasing demand for advanced products such as micro chips, integrated circuits, and nanoelectronics that require extreme clarity in designing stages. Various companies such as Microsoft Corporation; Samsung Electronics; Apple Inc.; International Business Machines Corporation; Cisco Systems, Inc.; HTC Corporation; Lenovo Group Ltd.; Bajaj Electronics Ltd.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global super-resolution microscope market in terms of revenue share in 2016. This is attributed to the presence of a large number of academic and research institutes, which are engaged in R&D activities related to microscopy. The U.S.-based companies have been consistently involved with development and commercialization of these advanced imaging modalities for several years now, which has contributed significantly to regional growth.

Asia Pacific region is expected to grow at a lucrative rate over the forecast period owing to increasing government funding for life science research coupled with rising prevalence/incidence disease such as cancer and diabetes across various countries including China, India, Japan, Singapore etc., thereby boosting demand for diagnostic procedures using super-resolution microscopy techniques. Moreover high investment by international players such as IBM Corporation; Carl Zeiss AG; Nikon Corporation; Koninklijke Philips Nederland BV; Olympus Optical Co., Ltd.; Leica Microsystems GmbH & Co.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for high-resolution images in life sciences and medical research
  • Advances in microscopy technology that enable super-resolution imaging
  • Growing use of super-resolution microscopy in drug discovery and development
  • Increased funding for life science research from public and private sources
  • Proliferation of image analysis software tools that facilitate data interpretation
