Our country's microscope has undergone continuous development since its invention and has now entered a mature stage of commercialization. In 2018, my country's export volume of microscopes reached 2.9544 million units, an increase of 10.69% year-on-year, and there were more than 20 professional manufacturers of various sizes. The following is an overview and current status analysis of the microscope industry.
According to the statistics of the China Instrument and Meter Industry Association, from 2015 to 2017, my country’s export volume of microscopes was between 2.2 million and 3 million units, with an average annual import of about 50,000 units. The export volume is much higher than the import volume, but the export amount is much lower. The amount of imports reflects that the average price of a single optical microscope imported from China is much higher than that of exported microscopes, and the domestic microscope market depends on imported products.
In 2018, my country's export volume of microscopes was 2,954,400 units, an increase of 10.69% year-on-year; the export value was US$146 million, an increase of 8.96% year-on-year, and my country's microscope export volume and export value continued to grow. In 2018, my country imported 47,100 microscopes, a year-on-year decrease of 15.44%; the import value was US$255 million, a year-on-year increase of 11.35%. Analysis of the microscope industry pointed out that the number of microscope imports in my country has declined, but the value of imports has continued to grow. The number of imports is much lower than the number of exports, but the amount of imports is higher than the amount of exports. Compared with international giants, my country's microscope industry has a lower level of profitability. .
At present, the microscopes used in hospitals in our country are almost monopolized by Leica Microsystems, Zeiss, Nikon and Olympus. Overview of the microscope industry and analysis of the status quo, there are currently few domestic companies capable of starting to produce microscopes, such as Yongxin Optics, McAudi, Sunny Optics, etc. If domestic optical microscopes can be manufactured with high performance and high reliability, they will face big market opportunities.
McAudi is currently the leading brand of domestic microscopes. It was invested and constructed by Hong Kong capital in the 1990s when Hong Kong capital acquired the original Xiamen Optical Instrument Factory. At present, it has established several processing bases in China and registered trademarks in many foreign countries. Company or office. At present, MOTIC has strong strength in digital microscope and micro-digital interaction. Recently, it has also launched a motorized microscope. In addition, MOTIC has set up dozens of branches and offices in China. Direct sales and strong marketing capabilities are also a major advantage of MOTIC. In recent years, the sales of microscopes have exceeded 100 million.
Chongqing Optoelectronics is a domestic long-established optical factory established in 1958. It produces a series of microscopes ranging from biological, inverted, fluorescent, stereo, and gold. Among them, inverted biological microscopes and metallographic microscopes are relatively powerful in China. The development of Chongguang to this day is still due to the system and other reasons. The progress has been slow and the staff turnover is serious. It feels that it is going downhill. It is just that the lean camels are bigger than the horses. Now they have branches and offices in many places in China. Sales.
As a major producer of microscopes in the world, my country produces about 70% of microscopes for export every year. The microscopy industry overview and status analysis believe that benefiting from the steady development of the global microscope market, the output and market scale of microscopes have steadily increased. In the future, with the penetration of domestic and foreign microscopes in teaching, life sciences, nanotechnology and semiconductor technology, as well as domestic The upgrading and replacement of microscope products has a huge prospect for my country's microscope industry, especially the field.
In the future, the global microscope market demand will maintain a steady growth, and the trend of my country's microscope demand will accelerate. With the continuous increase of my country's education and scientific research expenditures, my country's microscope market has a bright future. However, compared with the international advanced level, the research and development technology level of my country's microscope industry still has a big gap, and the products are mainly concentrated in the low-end field. Facing the broad market prospect, the technical level of my country's microscope industry needs to be improved urgently.
In the future, the development of microscopic mirror structure in my country will complement each other with the increasingly advanced fixatives and staining techniques for processing cell structures, which will open up increasingly broad development prospects for modern medicine and biology. In particular, the advancement of nucleic acid and protein chemical analysis technology, in conjunction with the development of microscope technology, has led human vision to the fields of molecular biology, molecular cytology, molecular immunology and molecular genetics. The above is the overview and current situation analysis of the microscope industry.
