UK Analytical & Consulting Chemist Market Report Nov 09

The latest report from industry analysts Plimsoll, featuring 95 UK companies, provides up-to-date key market intelligence on this industry.

Just a few findings from the report show:

  • Butterworth Laboratories is in a healthy position compared to its main competitors.

  • 17 companies in the market are in trouble.  Of these, 4 are likely to fail within the next 12 months.

  • The UK Analytical & Consulting Chemists market is set for a wave of consolidation with mergers and takeovers on the increase - a result of too many companies chasing too few customers.  Butterworth are committed to remaining completely independent, with the distinct advantages this brings.

  • Despite the doom and gloom, some companies are still prospering.  56 companies in the latest report are rated as Strong, having grown and improved their financial strength - quite an achievement in the current climate.

  • 26 reckless companies are chasing sales at the expense of profitability.  Many of these are serial loss-makers, creating increased competitive pressure as they drive down prices.
