Paper Abstract

In view of the fact that in the earlier part of this meeting worldwide markets and units have been explored to some extent, I felt it would be more appropriate to focus very specifically on the North American market. Where the trends differ internationally, and in specific regional segments, I'll certainly come back to them. I thought it would also be appropriate to mention what the methodology of today's presentation is going to be. To begin with, we have identified the significant market segments. We have gone on to determine what the specific industry characteristics within these seg- ments turn out to be. Then gone into the number crunching details of what the market size and growth trends appear to be. Next, look into the technology, the technical aspects of what really is happening, where are the processes really coming from, and finally, draw conclusions on what the trends will portend in terms of them being either evolutionary or areas where actual revolutions may be occurring.
