However, an increase in import competition and wholesale bypass will threaten revenue and profitability.
The industry consists of companies that distribute laboratory, scientific and school equipment, instruments and supplies (except for medical, vision and dental equipment and supplies).
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
