Scientific Technology News (STN), the news arm of Top-Down Analytics (TDA), is pleased to announce the release of the 2018 Outlook: Analytical Instruments Industry report. Following a sluggish start, 2017 has been a year marked by shifting landscapes for several industries. By the numbers, the market for analytical instruments has put forth a somewhat tepid performance for the year overall. However, with the recovery of some of its end-markets and the improved macroeconomic environment in second half of 2017, the industry is on the rebound. “We expect this upswing will make for a thriving market in 2018,” says Glenn Cudiamat, General Manager of Top-Down Analytics. “We forecast that the industry will expand 6.1% in 2018, reaching $56.6 billion fueled by strong demand from industrial and academic markets.”

Growth estimates are provided for over 70 analytical instrument technologies for 2018 in the following categories:

  • Chromatography
  • Mass Spectrometry
  • Life Science Instrumentation
  • Molecular Spectroscopy
  • Atomic Spectroscopy
  • Microscopy
  • Materials Analysis
