The microstructure of materials can affect materials properties, which in turn influence the selection and application of materials in industrial settings. 

Microstructure analysis delivers vital information on how the material was made and the quality of the resulting material. It allows determining if a component was made from specified material and if the material received the proper processing treatment, becoming a powerful tool in R&D and QC to assess its fitness for purpose.
