German term or phrase: Beschaffungsvolumen
Ein Vorsprung, der sich in Wachstum niederschlagen wird, zumal eine Marktsättigung noch lange nicht in Sicht ist: mit über 22000 Radio- und 4500 TV-Stationen weltweit steht ein Beschaffungsvolumen von über zwei Milliarden Euro aus.
This is part of a company profile. I would appreciate your ideas on Beschaffungsvolumen and noch lange nicht in Sicht ist

English translation:foreseeable over the long term
Explanation:
..since a saturation of the market is not foreseeable for a long time to come/over the long term...

Without knowing more of the context, I'm not sure about Beschaffungsvolumen.
The reference to TV and radio stations suggests the possibility that what is meant here is the amount of advertising to be purchased - in that case it could be a projected volume of expenditure. Just a thought - hope it helps.

Explanation:
Hi Alpine,
Thanks for the points. Concerning Beschaffungsvolumen, as always, context is everything. Sales potential is also a possibility, depending on what side of the transaction your company is on.
Just wanted to give you as many ideas as possible to work with - and I did say I was not sure. I certainly didn't mean to mislead anyone Good luck with the rest of your project!
