Renishaw’s full-year results for the period ended 30th June 2022 have just been released to the London Stock Exchange.
Record revenue of £671.1m, 19% higher than FY2021 revenue of £565.6m
Manufacturing technologies revenue increased by 20% to £634.6m, with:
• record demand for encoders, driven by sustained semiconductor and electronics capital investment;
• rising sales of flexible gauging and machine tool products for automated machining, notably in the consumer electronics sector; and
• repeat purchases of high-value solutions by key customers in additive manufacturing and 5-axis metrology.
Analytical instruments and medical devices revenue increased by 4% to £36.5m, with:
• strong growth in H2 to give record spectroscopy revenues, as backlog of duty-exemption certificates in China eased; and
• reduced neurological revenue during FY2022, though we are talking with multiple large pharmaceutical companies to use our unique drug delivery technology in clinical trials.
