The company has attributed this success in part to its leading positions in key markets in Healthcare & Life Science, Semiconductor (with a high proportion to compound semiconductor) and Advanced Materials.

Richard Tyson, Chief Executive Officer of Oxford Instruments plc, said: "This is a very robust set of results for Oxford Instruments. 

''Our focus on specialist niches within structural growth markets has supported strong revenue and adjusted operating profit growth at constant currency (7.5 per cent and 6.5 per cent respectively), and our positive book-to-bill of 1.07 and order book growth of 10% demonstrates continued strong global demand for our leading products and services.

"I believe there is a substantial opportunity to pair this with enhanced operational performance and effectiveness to deliver even better outcomes for customers, together with margin expansion and attractive, sustainable growth.

"The Group is in a strong position with exciting prospects. We will continue to build on Oxford Instruments' excellent reputation amongst the world's leading companies and scientific research communities. I look forward to working with the team to build on these strong foundations"
