Recent advances in microscopy techniques have opened new avenues for microscopes to be used in optogenetics, nanophotonics, photochemical catalysis, and the fabrication of superhydrophobics.

Optogenetics is a neuromodulation technique that uses light as a stimulus to control and monitor the activities of individual neurons in living tissue. A recent application of optogenetics in combination with microscopy is in research on layers of cultivated excitable cells to understand the general biology of action, potential generation, axonal signal transmission, and synaptic activities.

These emerging application areas of microscopy are expected to offer significant growth opportunities to market players in the coming years. 

Microscopy Market is projected to grow from USD 7.2 billion in 2022 to USD 9.5 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 5.8% from 2022 to 2027, according to a new report by MarketsandMarkets™. Factors such as advancement in technology of microscopes, growing interest of nanotechnology and regenerative medicines, better regulatory procedures along with growing application scope and high demand from key end users are driving the market growth.
