European Market for Analytical Instruments The European market for analytical instrumentation will increase by more than 50% over the six-year period from 1979 to 1985, according to a re
port by market researchers Frost & Sullivan, Inc. The report, "Scientific Instruments in Europe," surveys the market for analytical instrumentation in Germany, the United Kingdom, France, Italy, the Netherlands, and Switzerland. These countries account for about 83% of the total European market for analytical instruments, ac cording to the survey. The report analyzes the climate for capital investment in each of the six countries surveyed, and predicts the
size of the analytical instrument mar ket in each country for each type of in strument. Operational principles are described for each analytical tech nique, such as mass spectrometry, nu clear magnetic resonance spectrome try, and liquid chromatography, and technical developments likely to affect the market are detailed. Also included in the study is a breakdown of the an alytical instrument market by endusers, including the chemical industry, government-financed research institu tions, and medical and clinical labora tories. Frost & Sullivan researchers used a new approach to forecast in strumentation trends: They analyzed the number of published scientific pa pers dealing with specific instruments used in chemistry and medicine, and the resulting graphs have been includ ed in the study. "Scientific Instruments in Europe" (report No. E385) may be purchased for $1350 from Frost & Sullivan, Inc., Customer Service, 106 Fulton St., New York, N.Y. 10038; 212-233-1080.
