“The new study, written in collaboration with Estin & Co, is full of information and inspires enthusiasm in many respects. The good news is not so much that we can attach figures to the growth in recent years, but that our industry will continue to grow through to the year 2023, which is as far as our forecasts go. We don’t doubt that it will continue well beyond that. This future growth will be the result of the growth of certain application markets, and of the higher rate of penetration into other sectors.” Frédéric Reux Media Director & Editor-in-Chief at JEC Group.
