Atomic Force Microscopy Market Research, 2031

The global atomic force microscopy market size was valued at $480.53 million in 2021, and is projected to reach $806 million by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 5.4% from 2022 to 2031.

Atomic force microscopy (AFM) is a powerful technique that enables the imaging of almost any type of surface, including polymers, ceramics, composites, glass and biological samples. AFM is used to measure and localize many different forces, including adhesion strength, magnetic forces and mechanical properties. AFM consists of a sharp tip that is approximately 10 to 20 nm in diameter, which is attached to a cantilever. The tip moves in response to tip–surface interactions, and this movement is measured by focusing a laser beam with a photodiode. Surge in adoption of atomic force electron microscopes and scanning force microscopy for conducting research and manufacturing processes acts as a key driving force of the global AFM market. In addition, atomic force microscopes find their major application in the field of semiconductors for circuit editing and analyzing circuit failure, which notably boosts their demand, thereby augmenting the market growth. Moreover, in life sciences, they are used in clinical trials, pathology, disease diagnosis, toxicology, and various other sub-disciplines. Atomic force microscopy can further be used for the characterization of materials, to study their internal structures, and various other applications. Furthermore, it is used in food, forensics, chemical, healthcare, and various other industries.
