The optical microscopes, also known as light microscopes, is a microscope that uses visible light and a combination of lenses for magnification of images of small samples. The optical microscopes are the first and simplest form of microscopes. With various lenses and light sources, five types of light microscopy are, bright-field, phase-contrast, dark-field, differential interference, and fluorescence. They are characterized based on structure according to requirement. The growth of the Optical Microscopes in healthcare market is attributed to the innovative product development, collaborations are boosting the growth of the market over the years. Also, the growth in emerging market is likely to have a positive impact on the demand for the market during the forecast period. However, the growth of the market is restrained by factors such as the limitation of the optical microscope.

The Optical Microscopes in healthcare market is expected to witness substantial growth post-pandemic. The COVID-19 has affected economies and industries in various countries due to lockdowns, travel bans, and business shutdowns. The COVID-19 crisis has overburdened public health systems in many countries and highlighted the strong need for sustainable investment in health systems. As the COVID-19 pandemic progresses, the healthcare industry is expected to see a drop in growth. The life sciences segment thrives due to increased demand for invitro diagnostic products and rising research and development activities worldwide. However, the medical technologies and imaging segment is witnessing drop in sales due to a smaller number of surgeries being carried out and delayed or prolonged equipment procurement. Additionally, virtual consultations by healthcare professionals are expected to become the mainstream care delivery model post-pandemic. With telehealth transforming care delivery, digital health will continue to thrive in coming years.
