Optical microscope uses visible light and lenses to magnify small images and is also known as light microscope. It is widely used to view dead or living samples by the scientific community. Only one magnifying glass was used by simple optical microscope whereas more than two lenses are used by modern optical microscope nowadays. The expansion of beam of laser light to make the greatest use of optics is the principal technique used in optical microscope. Thus, it finds its applications in life sciences, nanotechnology, semiconductors, material sciences, and others in end uses such as hospitals & clinics, academics & research institutes, pharmaceuticals & biotechnology companies, diagnostic laboratories, and others.

COVID-19 Scenario Analysis:
- The global optical microscope market size has been significantly impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak.
- The global factories have struggled to manufacture optical microscope in this COVID-19 pandemic and have also struggled in developing or improving the current optical microscope due to lack of workforce.
- The supply chain has been disrupted and the optical microscope market will be less impacted compared to many other markets because even in this COVID-19 situation optical microscope is used in various medical applications.
- So, during the meantime, this would be an opportunity for the companies to research and improve their product, develop ways to increase production of optical microscope.
