2D and 3D scientific visualisation market to generate $10.7 bln in 2005

According to Machover Associates, the worldwide market for scientific visualization in both 2- and 3- dimensions is expected to grow from $10.7 bln in 2005 to $17.2 bln in 2010. Most of the money is going into 3-D imaging, and although the majority of it will come from private industry, a substantial amount of federal research funding will be channeled toward that area as well.
