Following the industry downturn in the early 00s, most companies had started to recover during 2004, although with more streamlined operations in terms of employees and core businesses. With a few exceptions, most of the major equipment suppliers had returned to healthy levels of profitability and sustainable debt. Some got there via bankruptcy proceedings. To ensure a future after the downturn, most companies retained fairly constant levels of R&D spending during the lean years. This report summarises the position of the major players, and gives some forecasts for where the market is heading.
