The author mostly said that: this kind of equipment is intrinsically quite expensive, because lots of various tech are intrinsically high-end. Now there is also the question of regulation. From my experience, the major part of the cost of a system does NOT come from there, even if regulation does not have a trivial cost. The major part of the cost comes from the BOM, from R&D, and from sales. And this is a sector where there are lots of innovation, despite all of that.

Pretty good summary of what I said, thanks.
