The “Asia-Pacific Biopsy Device Market 2019-2027” report

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 16 giugno 2019

According to this research, the Asia Pacific biopsy device market shows an upward trend and is likely to exhibit a CAGR of 7.99% during the forecast period of 2019-2027.
India, China, Japan, South Korea, ASEAN countries, Australia & New Zealand and countries in rest of Asia-Pacific together form the market for biopsy devices in the APAC region.
In recent years, an increase in the number of cancer cases in APAC has intensified research in the disease to detect the condition early and to treat it by developing advanced solutions using biopsy tests. Furthermore, there exists a probability of leading vendors in the market shifting their base to the Asia-Pacific region to gain advantage of the lucrative proposition of cheaper land & material cost, easily available workforce and access to a vast patient base. This will make their solutions available to end-users at much lower costs. Therefore, economic developments and growing government support, with a possibility of biopsy vendors migrating their operational bases to the region, have opened new growth avenues for biopsy solution providers in the emerging markets.In countries such as China, India, and Thailand, oral cavity cancer is quite prevalent due to the use of smokeless tobacco products. Also, the stomach cancer rates are higher in these regions due to the high prevalence of Helicobacter pylori infection and probably due to dietary patterns. Over the forecasting period, the Asia-Pacific region with its broader customer base will dominate the global market in terms of demand for the biopsy procedure segment.

Major Initiative to Close Information Gaps on Cross Border Reproduction in the Asia Pacific

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 6 maggio 2019

A powerful task force of scientists and clinicians specialising in assisted conception have mounted a major campaign to close gaps in knowledge about cross border reproduction in the Asia Pacific region.Each year, thousands of infertile couples travel the world for third party reproduction in the quest to achieve their dream of parenthood.The Asia Pacific region, in particular, has been a booming market for procedures such as sperm, egg and embryo donation and gestational carriage, or surrogacy.However, the extent of this activity is not fully understood and there are concerns about the quality and safety for all stakeholders, including children born from these assisted reproductive procedures.The 9th Congress of the Asia Pacific Initiative on Reproduction (ASPIRE 2019) being held in Hong Kong will progress an initiative to gather vital information on cross border reproductive care from 21 countries in the region, and implement a framework of consistent guidelines and standards of care.Dr. Clare Boothroyd, one of Australia’s leading fertility specialists and Vice-President of ASPIRE, said the survey would be far reaching to engage with donors, recipients, brokers, providers of infertility services, governments and community groups.Many couples seeking cross border reproduction through treatments such as oocyte donation or gestational carriage have to travel across a minefield of varying legal and regulatory controls in different destinations.Unmarried couples experiencing infertility, and same sex couples wanting to have a baby, face even more challenging barriers to treatment in many countries.“Many people throughout the world are willing to travel to access assisted reproductive procedures that may be prohibited, restricted or too costly in their own countries,” Dr. Boothroyd said.

Impact of Policies and Guidelines on the Cybersecurity Industry in Asia-Pacific

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 29 maggio 2018

The “Impact of Policies and Guidelines on the Cybersecurity Industry in Asia-Pacific, 2017” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.The report covers the study of policies/guidelines issued by the regulatory bodies or cybersecurity agencies of two countries in the Asia-Pacific region. The two countries covered in this issue are Singapore and China. The objective of this study is to identify the impact of these policies on the cybersecurity industry in the two countries, based on an observation of what deems to be a significant policy/guideline provided by government authorities.The report includes interpretation services and highlights of areas which may impact the country of study. Growth opportunities and a call to action are provided to highlight the areas of growth driven by the newly introduced policies or guidelines. In January 2018, the Cyber Security Agency of Singapore (CSA) released the Cybersecurity Bill. The main areas highlighted in the notification include the holistic approach it takes in applying the bill to all Critical Information Infrastructures (CIIs), addressing the Commissioner’s powers in investigating cybersecurity incidents, the need for CIIs to carry out regular risk assessments and audit, the need for cybersecurity service providers to be licensed, and the various penalties that apply for any failure to comply.The Cybersecurity Bill in Singapore poses some challenges for CIIs as they may not have the expertise to ensure adherence to the Bill. As such, business opportunities arise for the cybersecurity industry, especially for the service providers and educational institutes as they provide services to CIIs to help them fill the gaps for ensuring compliance with the Bill.In June 2017, a fundamental law in cybersecurity came into effect in China. The implementation of the Cybersecurity Law has strengthened China’s regulatory regime in protecting cyberspace sovereignty and tightening the control over national security issues. The new law requires network operators and critical information infrastructure (CII) operators to comply with the stated security obligations. The law not only lays emphasis on data security, but also stresses the protection of individual information.

Interventional Radiology and Cardiology Treatment Methods Find Newer Markets in Asia-Pacific, Finds Frost & Sullivan

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 27 marzo 2013

KUala Lumpur, Malaysia, PRNewswire The growing number of aging people, along with the high incidence of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases in Asia-Pacific due to unhealthy lifestyles, has spurred the need for interventional radiology and cardiology procedures. Interventional methods’ benefits such as reduced hospitalization and faster recovery times have lowered in-patient admission rates and lent momentum to the market in the region. New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (http://www.medtech.frost.com), Asia-Pacific Interventional Radiology and Cardiology Market Assessment, finds that the market earned revenues of more than US$591.3 million in 2012 and estimates this to grow at a CAGR of 3.5 % through 2017. Greater focus on the early diagnosis and treatment of diseases, and government initiatives to promote health check-up programs, aid the growth of the interventional radiology and cardiology market in Asia-Pacific. Although most countries in the Asia-Pacific position themselves as ideal destinations for medical tourism, the limited budgets of hospitals and medical facilities curb their ability to offer interventional therapies. Public sector hospitals are reluctant to invest in interventional treatment systems owing to high equipment costs and a shortage in workforce and infrastructure. To equip healthcare centers, governments in the region are chalking out strategies for increased funding and setting up educational institutions to train specialists. Equipment vendors too are providing new private hospitals in developing countries with integrated solutions to enhance penetration while universities and private hospitals in developed Asia-Pacific countries are looking to establish hybrid labs to enhance co-ordinated care for endovascular procedures in an interventional environment. If you are interested in more information on this research, please send an email to Donna Jeremiah, Corporate Communications, at djeremiah@frost.com, with your full name, company name, job title, telephone number, company email address, company website, city, state and country.

Key market player Bayer Material Science (Germany) announced a hike of USD 429 per ton in polyurethane prices in May 2011. The alternatives to polyurethane such as spring and other fibers can impact the polyurethane market to some extent due to increasing prices of PU. Among all the geographical regions, Asia Pacific is leading in terms of production and consumption of the PU products.Asia Pacific is emerging as a highly competitive market, while the opportunities in this segment are growing due to the evolving economy and rising standards of living.

WWF “Misrepresents” Data On Singapore

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 3 aprile 2012

Singapore and surroundings

Singapore and surroundings (Photo credit: The Shifted Librarian)

For years Singapore has either topped or finished in the top three of the Heritage Foundation’s ‘Index of Economic Freedom.’ Not only is Singapore one of the global leaders for attracting investment, but it’s Economic Miracle has naturally made it a target for greens who despise innovation, aspiration and wealth creation. It therefore came as little surprise that Singapore would be targeted b y WWF. Despite Singapore’s stellar environmental reputation, WWF released a report claiming that the country was the highest emitter in the Asia-Pacific region, pinning the majority of the blame on business and industry. Do we need any more evidence of WWF’s real objectives? However, the government in Singapore shot back at WWF, with the prime minister claiming that WWF’s report “seriously misrepresents the situation.” The main issue of contention pertains to WWF’s methodology, with the government claiming that the organization had compiled its report using flawed data. In their report, WWF “counts emissions from goods that a country imports as attributed to that country.” However, the government of Singapore, which uses a methodology endorsed by the United Nations, only counts emissions that “are attributed to the country producing those goods.” So what has WWF done? They are effectively double-counting emissions, attributing the same emissions from production to both exporting and importing countries. What better way to prove a political point by distorting facts? And following similar, legislative efforts by the EU to impose distortive emissions assessments on imported products and services, this reflects a rising trend from protectionists to manipulate environmental criteria to justify trade barriers. Thus, WWF has done its utmost to create a fresh methodology that creates a skewed outcome and obfuscates Singapore’s real emissions. This lends a whole new meaning to the adage, “the ends justify the means.” Nice try WWF.
