These are substantial addressable markets underpinned by fundamental long-term growth drivers,” Kromek chief executive Dr Arnab Basu said in the results statement.

“It is greatly encouraging that we are now starting to see a return to normal business patterns, and this is feeding through into increased activity from our customers around the world. As a result, the board is cautiously optimistic for the year ahead and will provide updates to the market as the outlook becomes clearer moving forward,” he added.
