Scientific Research & Development Services Procurement in the US
This report is intended to assist buyers of scientific research and development (R&D) services. This market includes businesses involved in physical, engineering or life sciences R&D. Services include research, tests and trials that are conducted to increase a company's knowledge about a product or process, which can then be applied to developing or improving a product or process. The market only includes suppliers that focus exclusively on R&D and excludes players that may undertake R&D to support their primary operations. Government entities are also excluded from this market, although these entities often contract and fund vendor research efforts. This report does not include R&D in the social sciences or humanities fields.
