The atomic force microscopy market is expected to grow from USD 489 million in 2021 and is projected to reach USD 631 million by 2026; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.2% during the forecast period. Atomic force microscopy is an imaging technique for studying samples by generating images at an ultra-high resolution. It is an empowered technology that is vital for the measurements of minute samples with a substantial degree of accuracy. Currently, a collaboration between government-sponsored researchers and private firms is becoming vitally important for the commercialization of nanotechnology. Most nanotechnology labs use atomic force microscopes because they are easy to use and enable manufacturing of improved materials and reliable products, thereby augmenting the growth of the atomic force microscopy market.

Market for AFMs to grow at highest CAGR during the forecast period
An atomic force microscope is one of the most versatile and dominant equipment for studying samples beyond nanoscales.It is versatile because it can obtain three-dimensional topography, and it also meets the requirements of scientists and engineers by offering measurements for several types of surfaces.

It can generate images at atomic resolution with angstrom scale resolution height information, with the least sample preparation. Also, it can be employed to determine numerous material properties that include friction, electrical force, capacitance, magnetic force, conductivity, viscoelasticity, surface potential, and resistance.

Market for industrial grade AFMs to grow at higher CAGR during the forecast period
The industrial grade atomic force microscopy market is expected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period.This is because industrial grade AFM are more in demand owing to their high precision in detecting and visualizing even the smallest surface structures compared to research grade AFM.

Industrial grade AFM can detect and visualize even the smallest surface structures that elevate the product analysis to the next level. One of the best examples of this is the utilization of AFM in quality control and imaging for silicon-integrated circuits in the semiconductor industry.

Market for electronics and semiconductors segment to grow at highest CAGR during the forecast period
