Product Launch (Blog)

Mar, 03 2023

In 2019, Leica Microsystems Collaborated with the European Molecular Biology Laboratory for the Development of Novel Imaging Technologies


Confocal laser scanning analyzers have been very popular in recent years due to major technological breakthroughs and increasing healthcare business demands. Modern confocal laser scanning is built based on old manual laboratory tests. The increasing prevalence of microbial keratitis is accelerating the demand for confocal microscopes. In August 2021, as per the study "The epidemiology of infectious keratitis," published in The Ocular Surfaces, fungal keratitis has more than 1 million fungal infections worldwide yearly. Thus, all these factors demand the use of laser scanning abundantly.

According to Data Bridge Market Research, the Confocal Laser Scanning Market, which was USD 622.3 million in 2021, would rise to USD 898.61 million by 2029 and is expected to undergo a CAGR of 4.70% during the forecast period 2022 to 2029.

" Increasing Usage Of Confocal Laser Scanning Surge the Market Growth"

Confocal laser scanning is useful in biomedical research, and preclinical trials as both species have similar features. They help assess tumor growth rate, life cycle, and growth rate under numerous situations. They can also help differentiate between adult and juvenile cancers. The application of confocal laser scanning in cancer research and drug development allows the adoption of new medicines, patient-specific therapy, and customized medicine. Thus, this factor boosts market growth.   

What restraints the growth of the Global Confocal Laser Scanning Market?

" High Cost of Devices will Restrain the Growth Rate"

Confocal laser scanning involves limited excitation wavelengths widely available with common lasers that occur over very narrow bands and are very expensive to produce in the ultraviolet region. Also, the microscopes' parts and components are very expensive, restricting their use. All these major factors impede the growth of the market.
