London In order to enable app playback in the car display, vehicle manufacturers have turned to advanced Mirrorlink type interfaces. This move has opened up discussions with government bodies such as the North American NHTSA, which in turn proposes a set of guidelines for OEMs to keep driver distraction at bay. In view of these developments, automotive suppliers such as Delphi and Denso are developing multimodal HMI infotainment solutions with voice as the center pillar. These intelligent solutions are supported by workload managers, which can sense driving environment to present best levels of applications to drivers.To learn more about what different OEMs are working on in the multimodal HMI space and their next generation of apps and business models, Frost & Sullivan organised a web conference, entitled How OEMs Can Benefit from Multimodal HMI and Workload Managers. Global Program Manager, Infotainment & Telematics, Praveen Chandrasekar, identified key supplier activities as they are responding already to proposed changes by regulatory bodies such as NHTSA. He also looked at future plans of OEMs and suppliers and the way this connected space will evolve.

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 6 aprile 2012

Milano Frost & Sullivan ha tenuto il discorso di apertura alla conferenza annuale dell’Associazione Alumni Bocconi “unTHINKables: The Imperative of Growth”, organizzata a Milano. Sarwant Singh, Partner e Global Practice Director, ha presentato i risultati delle ultime ricerche di Frost & Sullivan sui Nuovi Mega Trends e su come questi guideranno la crescita e la creazione di ricchezza nelle nostre società in futuro.

He showcased how in future, as a result of urbanisation, cities and not countries will drive wealth creation and that city as a customer should be an important element of any business strategy within a business to business context. Mr. Singh’s presentation was followed by presentations of various Italian business representatives, discussing issues, such as growing your business by making dramatic and innovative choices, growing by challenging the limits of the market, and growing by finding the ability to (re)invent yourself.

Frost & Sullivan “Urban Mobility 3.0”

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 4 aprile 2012

Londra 13 e 14 giugno prossimi Il parlamentare Norman Baker darà il via al dibattito nella House of Lords del Parlamento britannico – L’argomento di quest’anno è “ Nuove offerte per la mobilità da parte dei produttori OEM e nuovi modelli di business che sfruttano il Web 2.0” “Siamo onorati della partecipazione di Baker al nostro evento – afferma Sarwant Singh, Partner e Global Practice Director del gruppo Automotive & Transportation di Frost & Sullivan -. Il nostro workshop annuale è stato creato nel 2009 per stimolare il dibattito su argomenti e tendenze che interessano lo sviluppo globale dei trasporti, quali ad esempio l’urbanizzazione, le nuove soluzioni di mobilità o i trasporti intermodali. Siamo in particolare orgogliosi dei nostri sforzi tesi ad avvicinare il settore pubblico e il settore privato.” Durante i due giorni dell’evento si affronteranno e discuteranno i nuovi concetti di mobilità urbana e i modi in cui le più recenti tendenze possono offrire opportunità ai Governi, al settore pubblico e alle imprese di allineare la propria visione della mobilità futura e i propri prodotti e servizi ai bisogni non ancora soddisfatti del cliente. Durante l’evento si analizzerà anche il ruolo del trasporto pubblico, in particolare degli autobus e dei treni, e il ruolo dei veicoli elettrici come forma di trasporto sostenibile ora e in futuro. Il discorso di Baker darà il via al primo giorno della conferenza, incentrato sull’argomento “Personale o pubblico?: I grandi agglomerati urbani e i trasporti sostenibili del futuro”. La discussione sarà facilitata da un pannello di parlamentari e rappresentanti del settore privato e del mondo accademico. Il secondo giorno sarà caratterizzato da discorsi programmatici e discussioni di gruppo con esperti del settore automobilistico e del mondo accademico.

Personalisation and New Technologies Are Top Factors for European Generation Y Drivers

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 28 marzo 2012

London European Generation Y consumers like to have trendy vehicles and project their social status through their vehicle. However, they also give a lot of importance to the value proposition, a Frost & Sullivan end-user survey revealed. The educated, affluent Generation Y consumer in France, Germany, Italy and the UK has a preference for new technologies and the personalisation of the vehicle. In-car systems related to entertainment are clearly preferred over information systems. A ‘Voice of the Customer’ study conducted by Frost & Sullivan (www.automotive.frost.com), EU “Generation Y” Beliefs and Attitudes Towards Environment, Personal Mobility Needs, and Vehicle Preferences based on age, gender, country, and education level, among others, revealed the most desired vehicle and related features, as well as preferred technology attributes in this consumer group.
At the same time, more than half of the respondents indicated an interest in being able to personalise the exterior and interior colour, air conditioning, MP3 player/connection, brake & tyre pressure monitoring. If the personalisation has to be paid for however, the most popular choice would be air conditioning, and exterior colour and blind spot assistance would come next.Regarding car ownership, 14 per cent of the surveyed Generation Y consumers demonstrated a preference to drive their own cars. “Many would participate in car pooling/ car sharing, if it reduced costs significantly and helped the environment, despite the drawbacks of being dependent on other participants of the scheme,” Leveque continues.Nevertheless, the survey revealed significant differences in opinions on green values across European countries. Italy and France have higher shares of customers belonging to the environmentally friendly group, than Germany and the UK, a result which is clearly at odds with the high standards of German environmental policies. The Italian and the French more often declared a willingness to pay more for green cars, in comparison to the German or British interviewee.If a European Gen Y member was able to build his or her own car, he/she would opt for a medium-size plug-in hybrid car with features such as an MP3-capable system and wired USB. “Generation Y is the new defining generation with different values, beliefs, and attitudes compared to previous generations,” says Mr. Leveque. “The automotive industry needs to fully understand the environmental attitudes, transportation needs, and vehicle preferences of the Generation Y, as these are the future vehicle buyers who will be significantly different from present day drivers,” he concludes.If you are interested in more information on this study, please send an e-mail with your contact details to Katja Feick, Corporate Communications, at katja.feick@frost.com.
EU “Generation Y” Beliefs and Attitudes Towards Environment, Personal Mobility Needs, and Vehicle Preferences is part of the Automotive & Transportation Growth Partnership Service programme, which also includes research in the following markets: Analysis of Connectivity, App Stores and Cloud-based Delivery Platforms, Strategic Analysis of the Global Automotive Market for IT Mobility Platforms and Strategic Analysis of the European Market for Telematics-enabled Usage-based Insurance.

Frost & Sullivan Looks at the Prospects of Global Generic Pharmaceuticals Market

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 4 marzo 2012

London,(PRNewswire) While the global generic pharmaceuticals market is expected to peak in 2012 owing to the patent expiry of several leading brands, regulations favouring generics and wider health insurance coverage by Governments and private bodies are expected to boost generic consumption. The Global Generic Pharmaceuticals Market was estimated to be $123.85 billion in 2010, growing at a compound annual growth rate of 9.3 per cent. The top eight global markets, namely the United States, Germany, the United Kingdom, France, Japan, Canada, Italy and Spain, account for 80 per cent of the total generic drug sales worldwide.In Europe, developed generic markets such as Germany and the United Kingdom have very high rates of generic penetration, presenting very minimal growth rates. While emerging markets such as France, Italy and Spain have seen the extent of generics penetration increase steadily, pricing policies, incentive schemes and regulatory framework still pose a challenge to the market participants with regard to market access and profit margins.”Focus of market participants is shifting toward less competitive yet commercially attractive segments such as difficult-to-produce drugs, specialty products and biosimilars,” explains Aiswariya Chidambaram, Research Analyst at Frost & Sullivan.Looking at the key therapeutic areas, Central Nervous System (CNS) and Cardiovascular are the two largest markets segments, constituting nearly 38 per cent of the global generic pharmaceuticals market. However, therapeutic segments such as Rheumatology, oncology and respiratory are likely to witness significantly high growth rates, attracting the attention of market participants.The top five generic pharmaceutical companies accounted for 39 per cent of the share in the global generic pharmaceuticals market in 2010. Diversification of product portfolios, vertical integration across the value chain, and untapped potentials of the emerging markets are the main drivers of acquisitions growth of generic pharmaceutical companies. There will be a significant rise in the partnership deals of generic pharmaceutical companies in the future, since many generic companies rely upon M&A rather than organic growth to battle out the intense competition in the industry.”Careful choice of product segments and appropriate time of entry into the market will enable the generic drug manufacturers to sustain amidst intense competition,” concludes Aiswariya Chidambaram.
Frost & Sullivan recently organised an on-demand web-conference entitled “Global Generic Pharmaceuticals Market – Brighter Times Ahead.” The web-conference summarises Ms. Aiswariya Chidambaram’s findings, investigating the market opportunities in terms of the key therapeutic areas facing generic exposure and establishing an understanding of the current and future trends in the developed and emerging markets worldwide. This web-conference will benefit biopharmaceuticals companies, pharmaceutical companies and technology providers in the biopharmaceutical industry.

Mr. Gopal R. comments on Automotive Supply Chain Strategies in the Context of Disasters

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 11 novembre 2011

Tailandia en tren

Thailand’s logistics industry estimated to be valued at USD 70 Billion is certainly impacted due to the largest contributing segment of manufacturing adversely impacted due to the floods. Trade oriented Automotive, High tech and Consumer Goods industries’ shut down has impacted the entire supply chain of these industries thereby resulting in negligible trade and consequently drop in logistics industry contribution. Impact of earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disaster in Japan and Arab Spring disruptions have all impacted different industries and their lengthy sourcing, manufacturing and distribution supply chains. The industries certainly get back on track, but do leave behind valuable lessons to rethink the future supply chain strategies to manage risks.
1. Supply Chain Risk Management: It is observed that nearly 60% of the firms do not have any effective supply chain risk management policy. This completely wipes off any uncertainties at sourcing, manufacturing, storage, distribution and last mile delivery. It is time to ensure adequate policies are in place to manage risks at all levels of the supply chain.
2. Don’t hoard, distribute: It was common to see companies after the Japan disaster to say we will start hoarding components, intermediates and inputs. This statement also is visible as a knee-jerk reaction to the Thailand flood scenario. It certainly isn’t quite an appropriate strategy. It is wiser to plan for inputs from diverse sources than hoard. In the longer term, we will realize the cost benefit of distributed or leveraged sourcing will far outweigh hoarding.
3. Cross-border collaboration: Companies should leverage trade and economic cooperation arrangements like AFTA, AEC and bilateral country agreements to build complementing and mirroring supply chain facilities to ensure disaster recovery is rapid. Normal scenarios can leverage these facilities to balance demand spikes and troughs.
4. Dynamic Forecasting: Demand forecasting is still deterministic and routine across various manufacturing segments. This feeds in assumptions that weather in unfavorable economic and natural scenarios. It is therefore essential to bring in stochastic scenario planning to ensure preventive steps are made to the supply chain ahead of crisis, than mending ways after.
5. Cultivate concept of sustainability: In today’s rampant depletion of resources, we seldom consider aspects on how sustainable our efforts are. If we pause to think of sustainability in what we do, we certainly would have been reminded of social and ecological implications in our every day routine. This would have helped us be more vigilant and planned to mitigate the loss resulting from such calamities. Sustainability is not futuristic; it is constantly refreshing the basics.
In the context of the Thailand Floods or Japan’s disaster, the above supply chain strategies can ensure the disaster recovery is rapid and also help manage any future unforeseen scenarios with minimal impact. These strategies can also support regional economies back each other during times of crisis and ensure regional stability is maintained. Supply chains are borderless; let’s not chain them.
