The study assists the EPA in evaluating the foreseeable availability of the facilities and personnel needed to perform the toxicological testing required under the Toxic Substances Control Act. The study profiles the toxicological testing industry which is estimated to contain 285 commercial toxicology laboratories with average employment of 57 per laboratory and average laboratory space, 28,000 sq. ft. Annual revenues for the industry are estimated at $650 million or $2.3 million per laboratory and market competition is high with no individual firm or small group of firms controlling key resources. The current supply of testing resources is adequate with industry utilization at about 80 to 85 percent. Capital and professional manpower are key resources. Demand for testing and testing resources should be strong and arises from regulatory sources including TSCA, FIFRA and FFDCA and non-regulatory sources. Finally, a conceptual supply/demand model shows it is possible to simulate and assess the potential economic impacts of regulatory changes as well as changes in prices, availability of resources and industry structure, but data and resource requirements to implement such a model would be substantial.
