The global surface analysis market has experienced substantial growth over the last couple of years. This market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.2% from 2015 to 2020. Factors such as growing focus on nanotechnology research, especially in the field of nanomaterials; increasing R&D expenditures of pharmaceutical and medical device companies; increasing use of surface analysis techniques in various industries such as semiconductor, energy, polymers, and life sciences, among others; and favorable government research funding are fuelling the growth of this market. However, high cost of instruments and increasing government taxes, such as 2.3% of excise imposed by the U.S. government on medical devices (microscopes), are restraining the growth of this market.

The global surface analysis market is segmented on the basis of instrumentation technology, industry, end user, and region. Based on instrumentation technology, the market is segmented into microscopy, spectroscopy, surface analyzers, and X-ray diffraction (XRD). The microscopy market covers optical microscopy, electron microscopy, scanning probe microscopy, and confocal microscopy. By industry, the market is categorized into semiconductor, energy, polymers, life sciences, metallurgy and metals, and others which include food and beverages, textile, and paper and packaging. By end user, the market is divided into academic institutes, industries, and research organizations.

Geographically, the surface analysis market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World. The Asia-Pacific market is poised to register the highest growth rate in the forecast period owing to the favorable funding for academic research, rising focus of key market players in this region, developing R&D infrastructure, increasing research collaborations with the U.S. and European countries, and increasing R&D expenditures by pharmaceutical companies. Growth in the Asia-Pacific region will be driven by developing countries such as India, China, Singapore, South Korea, and Japan.

The global market is consolidated in nature. In order to maintain their market shares, leading players are continuously developing new technologies and upgrading their existing products to enhance their product portfolios. Increasing competition among major players is expected to drive innovation in the market, thereby helping the industry to overcome existing challenges in various industrial fields, such as pharmaceutical, semiconductor, polymers, and energy, among others, and at the same time address user compliance issues and unmet needs of the market. Major players in this market are Danaher Corporation (U.S.), Olympus Corporation (Japan), Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc. (U.S.), ULVAC-PHI, Inc. (Japan), Bruker Corporation (U.S.), HORIBA, Ltd. (Japan), Nikon Corporation (Japan), Carl Zeiss AG (Germany), FEI Company (U.S.), Shimadzu Corporation (Japan), and JEOL, Ltd. (Japan).

Scope of the Report

Surface analysis is a technique that provides microscopic chemical and physical properties about the surface region of a sample. This analysis is carried out to gather information on chemical composition, level of trace impurities, and physical structure of the sampled region. Such information is important for researchers or manufactures to improve the quality of a product. Surface analysis techniques are used in the identification of trace elements, new product development, evaluation of production and packaging stability, rapid identification of trace contamination, and quality assessment. These techniques are becoming an integral part of various industries such as semiconductor, polymers, life sciences, and energy, among others, due to surface characterization of materials which is one of the most important characteristics before developing a new product in various industries.
