ICT e industria del futuro: Frost & Sullivan esamina i fattori chiave per la crescita

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 7 novembre 2015

Borsa Merci Telematica ItalianaGli investimenti nell’ambito delle tecnologie dell’informazione e della comunicazione (ICT) supereranno la crescita media del prodotto interno lordo europeo nei prossimi anni. Rispetto alla previsione nominale dell’OCSE del 2,2% per il PIL nel periodo 2014-2016, si prevede che la spesa ICT totale nei diversi settori in Europa aumenterà con un tasso di crescita medio annuale molto più rapido, del 3,3% tra il 2014 e il 2019. Una nuova analisi di Frost & Sullivan, intitolata “ICT Opportunities Across European Vertical Markets”, rileva che i primi cinque settori che offrono opportunità strategiche e tattiche per gli operatori del mercato ICT sono energia e utilities, sanità, ICT, trasporti e industria manifatturiera, che guidano la spinta alla digitalizzazione per la creazione di una società connessa. Il settore dell’energia e delle utilities è interessato a utilizzare l’ICT per affiancare i propri investimenti nelle reti intelligenti in progetti come gli aggiornamenti delle sottostazioni elettriche. Il settore riconosce che le tendenze tecnologiche sempre più mature come connettività, convergenza IT/tecnologie operative, cloud e analisi dei big data sono fattori chiave per raggiungere importanti risultati operativi. Per esempio, il concetto di Internet delle cose ha dato origine a soluzioni software e cloud che consentono alle utilities di connettere i sensori e, pertanto, ottenere visibilità sullo stato delle proprie risorse operative per una migliore gestione della domanda. “Analogamente, la realizzazione che le tecnologie machine-to-machine (M2M), la mobilità, il cloud e i dispositivi indossabili possono trasformare significativamente il modo in cui si erogano e consumano i servizi guida la spesa ICT nel settore della sanità, – afferma Yiru Zhong, analista di Frost & Sullivan. – Per incoraggiare sempre nuovi investimenti in ambito ICT, tuttavia, è fondamentale che i fornitori sviluppino proposizioni di valore specifiche per il settore della sanità”. Nel settore dei trasporti, le questioni relative alla sicurezza operativa come pure l’esigenza di integrare sistemi diversi e spesso isolati danno slancio alla spesa ICT. L’interesse del settore è rivolto verso l’implementazione di reti di prossima generazione, big data e tecnologie di analisi dei dati e M2M/Internet delle cose. “Il settore manifatturiero o quello dell’automazione industriale sono due ambiti che i fornitori ICT dovrebbero tenere d’occhio per nuove opportunità, – osserva Zhong. – Le soluzioni IT alimenteranno la spesa ICT complessiva nel settore, che diventa sempre più intelligente grazie all’integrazione in tempo reale di sistemi operativi ed enterprise.” La sfida per gli operatori nella comunità ICT in Europa è affermarsi come partner credibili dei fornitori di fronte ai clienti in diversi settori. A questo scopo, la comunità ICT deve adottare metodologie agili per gestire la propria organizzazione, il portafoglio tecnologico e le attività di acquisizione dei clienti. Inoltre, dovrebbe restare al passo con le strategie impiegate dai leader di mercato in Germania, Polonia e Regno Unito, dove si sono riscontrati tassi di crescita della spesa ICT superiori alla media e importanti iniziative del settore rivolte alla trasformazione digitale. Complessivamente, il settore ICT è destinato a ricevere una scossa. Quest’anno emergeranno nuove tipologie di soggetti interessati e aumenterà il consolidamento dei leader di mercato tradizionali, portando a un’innovazione dei modelli di business e all’applicazione di nuove tecnologie.

Frost & Sullivan: Cloud computing aziendale in crescita, grazie ai nuovi lavoratori mobili

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 17 luglio 2014

cloudCon la maturazione delle tecnologie cloud e l’aumento della consapevolezza dei loro benefici, sempre più organizzazioni in Europa e Stati Uniti stanno implementando soluzioni cloud per ridurre i costi IT e ottimizzare le operazioni. Le aziende statunitensi sono più avanti delle controparti europee nei livelli di adozione del cloud, a causa della maggiore esposizione alla tecnologia e delle migliori condizioni macro-economiche. Similmente, le grandi aziende stanno adottando tecnologie cloud più rapidamente rispetto alle piccole e medie imprese, a causa della necessità di ottimizzare l’infrastruttura di comunicazione esistente, più grande e complessa. Una nuova analisi di Frost & Sullivan, intitolata “Future of Cloud Computing Technologies in Enterprises in the United States and Europe”, rileva che quasi sei utenti di servizi cloud su dieci (57%) sono identificati come ‘dipendenti dal cloud’, mentre il 43% resta ‘in ritardo sul cloud’ o con un’opinione sfavorevole del cloud. Tra gli intervistati, circa il 70% degli statunitensi e il 56% degli europei che attualmente utilizzano tecnologie cloud trovano queste soluzioni altamente efficaci, indicando che l’esposizione a queste tecnologie può portare ad una maggiore adozione. “La maggior parte degli utenti dipendenti dal cloud si trova negli Stati Uniti, specialmente in ambito produttivo, nelle aziende con 20-500 dipendenti e nelle aziende con oltre 10.000 dipendenti, – afferma Karolina Olszewska, analista di Frost & Sullivan. – In futuro, tuttavia, si prevede che i decisori IT negli Stati Uniti, il settore governativo e le piccole imprese mostreranno l’aumento più significativo nell’adozione di tecnologie cloud.” Oltre la metà delle aziende intervistate in Europa e Stati Uniti ha già spostato il 50% o più delle proprie soluzioni di comunicazione aziendale sul cloud. Entro i prossimi tre anni, è probabile che quasi un quarto migrerà il 76% o più delle proprie soluzioni di comunicazione al cloud. In entrambe le regioni, i server email e le app collaborative sono in cima alla lista delle soluzioni di comunicazione aziendale trasferite al cloud. Tuttavia, solo il 27% degli utenti di servizi cloud ha spostato i propri sistemi di telefonia al cloud. Tra le soluzioni che devono ancora fare questo passaggio, le app collaborative offrono il potenziale di crescita maggiore.“Si prevede che la quota di lavoratori remoti e mobili aumenterà nel corso dei prossimi tre anni e cambierà i requisiti tecnologici aziendali, – conclude Olszewska. – L’impatto dei costi necessari a supportare queste nuove esigenze di business sarà avvertito più intensamente dai decisori IT negli Stati Uniti rispetto a quelli in Europa.” Lo studio “Future of Cloud Computing Technologies in Enterprises in the United States and Europe” è un servizio di Customer Research e fa parte del programma Conferencing & Collaboration Growth Partnership Service. L’analisi, un’indagine via web condotta su 1028 decisori IT impiegati in aziende negli Stati Uniti e in tutta Europa, misura l’attuale utilizzo e i futuri scenari dell’IT, in particolare delle tecnologie di cloud computing.

Frost & Sullivan: The Future Car Will Be a Giant Computer, Driven By a Robot, While You Prepare for Your Day

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 17 ottobre 2013

LONDON, UK Technological advancements are gaining pace and coalesce to create an all-encompassing future mobility concept, which today still sounds as if taken from a sci-fi movie. Artificial intelligence (AI), Internet multi-sensory trends as well as robotics are developing their footprint in the mobility industry. Five years from now, people will be able to feel the leather of the car seat without actually being close to the vehicle. Cars will become giant computers with an innumerable amount of AI tools, managing the environment and communicating intelligently with other cars on the road, analysing traffic, making choices about where to drive and analysing the speed patterns of others. And while the robot drives your car to your work, you can prepare for your day.A newly published Frost & Sullivan (http://www.automotive.frost.com) video report titled The Future of Mobility summarises the key factors which impact the way people will move from door to door in the future and which will add a new dimension to the mobility behaviour of human beings. The video report highlights mega trends impacting mobility, presents future mobility solutions like car sharing, and mobility apps, providing door to door one stop shop journeys, and discusses and compares what organisations within the mobility eco-system are doing to embrace this change. The report also looks at latest developments in artificial intelligence, human augmentation, robotics, digitalisation and connectivity and how this will transform the mobility eco-system.
“Frost & Sullivan analysis discovered that every new car will be “connected” by 2014, either via an embedded or tethered platform, making cars the third most connected “devices” behind mobile phones and tablet computers,” forecasts Frost & Sullivan Senior Partner and Global Practice Director Automotive & Transportation, Mr. Sarwant Singh. “A life changing impact of connectivity will be the driverless car, and no one other than Google is leading it. Google has pushed the car industry to develop autonomous driving and at the heart of its business model of driverless cars, is that cars are not owned anymore but shared. We expect very soon a company like Google or a car company to test run trials of 20 to 30 fully driverless cars in a shared business model within a small community to test the concept and prove to the world, that this technology is closer than we believe.”The focus for car manufacturers therefore will have to be on finding ways to differentiate themselves. More and more drivers turn away from car ownership and become members of car sharing organisations, expecting the rented vehicle to be connected, fully equipped with latest safety and infotainment systems and driving on electricity.“In order to stay competitive car companies have to provide value added services such as multi-modal journey planning, car sharing and services that make mobility much easier,” advices Mobility Programme Manager, Martyn Briggs from Frost & Sullivan. “Looking further forward, why not have your car book your parking at destination before you leave home, or play your favourite UK internet radio when you are working in LA, park your car remotely in tight parking spaces at a click of a button, and drive itself through a slow speed traffic jam while you read your books hands off. The cars of the future will be something similar, and could even get you home safely after an evening’s drinking, as your car will be fully autonomous.” This future mobility scenario leaves room for many similar ideas and is further influencing core transportation providers to consider new propositions to exploit the opportunities that mobility can bring.

Demand for Luxury Cars Differs Across Global Regions, Says Frost & Sullivan

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 16 agosto 2013

London The global luxury car market moves in different directions across various regions. While the UK market is the only European market to have experienced positive growth in 2012, the U.S. market finds itself in a rebound post recession with buoyant customer confidence. China however, is likely to overtake the U.S. success story by 2015.According to Frost & Sullivan (www.automotive.frost.com) the Global Luxury Vehicle Market is expected to grow from around 5 million cars today to around 10 million cars globally by 2020. This growth is likely to concentrate on the compact segments with 1.4 million cars today growing to 2.6 million cars globally by 2020 as well as the SUV segment with 1.6 million cars today forecast to grow to 2.3 million cars produced globally by 2020.“Baby boomers are the biggest customer group and represent 58 per cent of Merc customers for luxury cars in the North American market,” says Frost & Sullivan Automotive & Transportation Consultant, Mr. Niranjan Thiyagarajan. “Millennium customers on the other hand are expecting entry level luxury cars that offer unparalleled technology and connected services. This has been made evident by plans from luxury makers Daimler and BMW to introduce the CLA sedan and 3 series models at $ 33,000.” Generation X and Y customers in emerging markets such as China, India and Latin America are focusing on compact sporty vehicles. “The largest selling model for Jaguar Landrover has been the Evoque with close to 95,000 in 2012,” Mr. Thiyagarajan continued. “This also means luxury car makers will be hit by lowered profit margins for smaller cars. On the other hand large SUV’s like the Porsche Cayenne have been a massive success prompting manufacturers such as Bentley, Lamborghini and Maserati to consider introducing similar models.” There has been a polarisation in the size of vehicles preferred by premium customers.China remains the most important market despite government austerity policies restricting the purchase of luxury cars for its fleets. This is only a momentary lapse and not expected to halt the luxury market which will grow quicker than the automotive market itself. GM is building its Cadillac plant in Shanghai while Honda plans to introduce Acura cars in China by 2016.“Despite the effects of the double dip recession the luxury car market remains unaffected and a number of native players from the Chinese and Russian market are expected to enter the scene,” concludes Mr. Thiyagarajan. “Connected living and health, wellness and well being are key USPs that OEMs are expected to differentiate themselves on.”(Analyst Comment by Frost & Sullivan Consultant Niranjan Thiyagarajan)

Compression Ignition is Emerging as a Key Technology in European Natural Gas Commercial Vehicle Market, finds Frost & Sullivan

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 5 aprile 2013

London Europe is set to emerge as a strong regional market for medium- to heavy-duty natural gas (NG) commercial vehicles, populated by several competitors on both OEM and supplier sides. Driven by energy price volatility, tightening emission norms, and the shale gas revolution in the US, the market for NG vehicles is gaining considerable momentum. Of all alternative NG technologies, compressed natural gas (CNG) and biomethane technologies pose the least pressure on existing infrastructure. By 2018, the NG market in Europe is expected to reach production levels of nearly 18,000 units. Spark ignited technology will account for around 90 per cent of commercially manufactured NG buses, while compressed ignition technology will dominate the liquefied natural gas (LNG) truck market with around 60 per cent share. The heavy duty segment is set to account for 75 per cent of NG truck sales with LNG being a dominant fuel option. OEMs’ willingness to differentiate products through technology partnerships is leading toward increasing focus on compression ignition and dual fuel technologies. Compression ignition would facilitate the use of NG vehicles for long haul application, which would compensate for the higher upfront cost – provided the fuel infrastructure and diesel NG price differential exists. In future, the margins for module suppliers will shrink, and the same will happen for component suppliers when OEMs begin exerting pricing pressures as volumes start to grow. Duty cycle restriction of NG vehicles can be overcome through concerted strategies aimed at developing vehicles and products that deliver highest efficiencies in certain targeted vocations and duty cycles along with necessary fuel infrastructure. This study is part of the Automotive & Transportation Growth Partnership Service programme. Frost & Sullivan’s related research services include: 2013 Outlook of the Global Automotive Industry, and Medium-Heavy Duty Hybrid/Electric Truck and Bus Market in North America and South America as well as China and India. All research services included in subscriptions provide detailed market opportunities and industry trends evaluated following extensive interviews with market participants.
Frost & Sullivan, the Growth Partnership Company, works in collaboration with clients to leverage visionary innovation that addresses the global challenges and related growth opportunities that will make or break today’s market participants.

Implications for our future lives

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 26 settembre 2012

London Frost & Sullivan’s “New Mega Trends” identifies and evaluates emerging Mega Trends and their sub trends, translating these to real opportunities for everyday business and personal life. This analysis – tested with Fortune 1000 companies – has now been developed into a book, “New Mega Trends,” which will launch this week.
Frost & Sullivan’s “New Mega Trends” identifies the 10 most important global New Mega Trends – sustained and macroeconomic forces of development that influence global businesses, economies, societies, cultures and our personal lives – that will redefine the future world.“New Mega Trends” includes:Connectivity and Convergence – With more than 80 billion connected devices, 9 billion mobile phones, 5 billion Internet users, five connected devices for every individual, 10 connected devices for every household, and 500 devices with unique digital IDs per square kilometre, consumers will pave the way to a digital planet by 2020. Connectivity will see wide-spread convergence of technologies, products and even industries.Health, Wellness and Wellbeing – Sustainability was one of the major trends of the last decade. Health, wellness and wellbeing will be the most important factor of discussion and differentiation in this decade. Healthcare spending will consume more than 15 percent of GDP by the middle of this decade (20 percent to 30 percent by 2050) and government’s inability to make the necessary investments will lead to a paradigm shift in the concept of healthcare.Smart is the new Green – The failure of green technology to show a manageable and predictable ROI will lead to a shift towards intelligent products that ‘behave’ green by adapting and changing to the environment around them through use of intelligent sensing and communication technology. The future will see use of several Smart products in our daily life, ranging from Smart (home) hubs connecting and integrating electronic/electrical equipment in our houses, Smart appliances that switch on and off themselves and Smart cloths that react to our body temperature or interact with mobile phones. This trend will lead to convergence of competition, with IT players, mobile operators, and energy companies competing to be the first to provide advanced smart solutions.In addition, the “New Mega Trends” addresses the “Macro to Micro” methodology, which can be applied to help identify “blue ocean,” or uncontested white space market opportunities, and also answer questions like:
How will we travel to work in the cities of the future?
What is Zero Vision, and is it the next big thing?
How will we stay connected in the future?
Will our wellness and wellbeing top the business agenda, and be more important than sustainability and the environment?
What new business models will succeed in future?
If you are a leader with a corporate vision, a strategic planner within your organization, or just curious about your future, Frost & Sullivan’s book, “New Mega Trends,” provides stimulating stories, startling facts and thought provoking case studies that will not only give a glimpse of how your future will be, but also reveals what opportunities lay in the here and now.“New Mega Trends,” written by Frost & Sullivan Partner Sarwant Singh and published by Palgrave Macmillan, will be launched Friday, 28th Sept. in the UK, Europe and Asia, and in the USA on Tuesday, 30th Oct.

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.
Join Frost & Sullivan at its upcoming annual industry event ‘Urban Mobility 3.0’. The two day conference in its fourth consecutive year will take place on 13th and 14th June 2012 in London. This year’s focus is on ‘OEMs New Mobility Offerings and New Business Models Linking Web 2.0’.

Online Classifieds Market Maturing

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 18 aprile 2012

Sydney (PRNewswire) Total revenue growth for the online classifieds market in Australia in 2011 was 16%, dipping 6% over the 22% growth achieved in 2010. The general shift from print to online expenditure is continuing with online accounting for an estimated 39% of total classifieds advertising expenditure in 2011, up from 18% in 2007.
Frost & Sullivan’s latest report, Australian Online Classifieds Market, due for release in April 2012, revealed that in 2011 total expenditure on online classifieds was $714 million. Growth in expenditure was driven more by the continued shift from print to online rather than an increase in total classifieds expenditure, which increased only by 3.5% in 2011. As the online classifieds market reaches a higher level of maturity, Frost & Sullivan forecasts that annual growth rates will continue to fall with the overall market expected to hover around $1,000 million in 2015. In the auto online classifieds sector, a significant reduction in revenue growth was shown from 24% in 2010 to 14%, as the publishers found it more difficult to factor in prices rises for standard online classifieds ad placements in a softer and maturing market. This was a similar scenario for the real estate market which also suffered a decline in revenue growth from 24% to 15%. The online employment classifieds market continued to perform strongly during 2011, with annual growth of 19%, and total expenditure of $244 million, with growth only slightly below that of the previous year.
“The CAGR of the overall online classifieds market between 2011 and 2015 is predicted to be 8.8%, with the auto sector outperforming the other sectors, though only by a marginal amount, “said Phil Harpur, Senior Research Manager, Australia & New Zealand ICT Practice.
The report also covers the general segment of the online classifieds market, defined as general merchandise categories outside of the three major segments of real estate, employment and automotive. Here, two business models which are impacting and restricting growth in the general online classifieds market are the online auction market and the free classifieds market. “eBay continues to make significant inroads into this market and Gumtree’s level of Internet traffic has grown significantly over the past 2 years,” Phil finishes.
Frost & Sullivan’s Australian Online Classifieds Market April 2012 report forms part of the Frost & Sullivan Australian Digital Media program. All research services included in this subscription provide detailed market opportunities and industry trends evaluated following extensive interviews with market participants. Interviews with the press are available. If you are interested in more information on this study, please send an e-mail with your contact details to Donna Jeremiah, Corporate Communications, at djeremiah@frost.com.

Frost & Sullivan Presenta i Nuovi Mega Trends alla Bocconi

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. Singh è intervenuto affianco a luminari del mondo degli affari quali ad esempio il CEO di Fiat-Chrysler, Sergio Marchionne, il Deputy Chairman di Prada, Carlo Mazzi, e il Vice Presidente di IBM, Isabella Chiodi.Di fronte a un pubblico di 300 delegati, Singh ha illustrato le 10 principali tendenze per il futuro e ha spiegato come la metodologia “da macro a micro” potrebbe essere applicata per creare nuove ed esclusive opportunità di crescita per il mercato. Ha mostrato come in futuro, per effetto dell’urbanizzazione, saranno le città e non i Paesi a guidare la creazione della ricchezza, e che la città dovrà essere vista come un elemento importante di ogni strategia d’affari in un contesto business to business.
La presentazione di Singh è stata seguita dagli interventi di vari esponenti italiani del mondo degli affari, che hanno affrontato questioni quali ad esempio far crescere il proprio business effettuando scelte radicali e innovative, crescere sfidando i limiti del mercato e crescere trovando la capacità di (re)inventarsi.

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.

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.
