Dear friends and colleagues,
In 1999, the global F&F market was valued at roughly $13 billion. Today, some estmates put the market at about $20.3 billion. No doubt this has been a challenging decade of economic and geopolitical turmoil, but it has also been a period of unprecedented technological advancement and innovation. As the F&F industry enters a new decade, and P&F magazine enters its 35th year, we look forward to the next decade of opportunities and evolution.
It has been our pleasure getting to know the experts and personalities that make this industry the singular phenomenon it is and we look forward to future relationships and projects. We thank all of you for your continued support and sharing of insights throughout the last year and wish you a 2010 filled with many opportunities and innovations. In turn, we pledge to continue to provide the best technical and business information possible to help ensure your future success.
Jeb Gleason-Allured, Editor
