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.
