Coronavirus response: EUMOFA’s weekly data and trends analysis

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 18 aprile 2020

The fishery and aquaculture sectors are among the most immediately impacted by the crisis. EUMOFA is releasing a weekly COVID-19 bulletin in order to inform the sector as quickly as possible on the evolution of the markets along the entire value chain, based on the most recent data on first sales, production and trade of fishery and aquaculture products. The data and analyses proposed are accurate to EUMOFA experts’ best knowledge but are of course subject to availability of information in the short-term and to intrinsic volatility of the current situation.
In week 15, available first-sales data for a handful of EU Member States shows increase in first-sales prices for several groundfish and flatfish species. The increase in first-sales prices can be due to increase in demand for the Easter holidays. However, it should be noted that volumes sold at first-sale stage were in general low, and at local level some species still suffered marked decline in prices.
In Spain, at the end of week 15, CEPESCA and FEDEPESCA report that more than 50% of fisheries and almost 100% of distribution are still active. Prices at first sale, although volatile, are recovering.
In France, fishing activity and landing volumes are still low, but some smaller auctions have reopened yet with limited activity. FranceAgriMer data on weekly auction sales (excluding the Mediterranean) show that, compared with week 14, volume were stable (+2%, mostly due to a strong increase of scallop volumes) and average prices slightly increased (+9%). Trends vary a lot across species.
In five Danish auctions (Hanstholm, Hirtshals, Strandby, Grenaa and Skagen), daily average volumes were slightly higher over the three working days in week 15 compared to the five days in week 14. Prices showed an increasing trend in week 15, with large variations across species.

Coronavirus response: EUMOFA’s weekly data and trends analysis

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 9 aprile 2020

Fishery and aquaculture are among the sectors most immediately impacted by the crisis. Over the coming weeks, EUMOFA will release a COVID-19 bulletin in order to inform the sector as quickly as possible on the evolution of the markets along the entire value chain, based on the most recent data on first sales, production and trade of fishery and aquaculture products.The data and analyses proposed are accurate to EUMOFA experts best knowledge, but are of course subject to availability of information in the short-term and to intrinsic volatility of the current situation. In particular, note that weekly data on first-sale are conceived to be disseminated as rapidly as possible. For this reason, they only cover some representative products in a selection of locations in some countries. They do not aim to give complete coverage of the market, and so it is recommended to use them as a mere indication of ongoing trends.This week, we display the main highlights on weeks 12 and 13, as data are progressively available. From next week, these highlights will be completed with finer-grained analyses and explanations.

“Ophthalmic Lasers Market – Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2019 – 2024)”

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 11 maggio 2019

The ophthalmic lasers market is expected to register a CAGR of 4.9%, over the forecast period.Factors that are responsible for the growth of this market include high prevalence of ophthalmic disorders, increasing initiatives to control visual impairment, and increasing regulatory approvals for ophthalmic lasers.FDA is aware that there has been, and continues to be, a considerable amount of research activity in the ophthalmic lasers arena. Hence, several number of eye lasers are receiving regulatory approvals, which help in driving the ophthalmic lasers market.In 2016, the China Food and Drug Administration (China FDA) had granted regulatory approval for the Ellex Medical Lasers Limited’s complete portfolio of glaucoma, vitreous floaters, and secondary cataract treatment lasers (collectively referred to as the YAG laser portfolio) in the Chinese market.With the company’s proprietary YAG laser portfolio now available to all ophthalmologists in China, the approval by China FDA had directly increased the sales in China, in 2017. Therefore, it is marked as an important milestone to expand its presence in the fast-growing market of Asia. Thus, the increase in regulatory approvals helps in driving the growth of the ophthalmic lasers market. Refractive Error Corrections are Expected to Hold the Highest Revenue in the Application Segment. In the application segment of the ophthalmic lasers market, refractive error corrections are projected to have the largest revenue during the forecast period. This is majorly due to the factors, such as the escalating number of refractive error cases among, both, children and adult population. Furthermore, increase in the application of femtosecond lasers in refractive error surgeries is helping in the growth of this segment.North America Dominates the Market and is Expected to do the Same during the Forecast Period. Currently, North America dominates the market for ophthalmic lasers, and is expected to continue its stronghold for a few more years. In the North American region, the United States holds the largest market share, owing to the increasing incidence rates of ophthalmic problems and increasing healthcare expenditure in the country, as well as the development of sophisticated healthcare infrastructure in the country.

“US In-Vitro Diagnostics Market- Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2019 – 2024)”

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 26 marzo 2019

The report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.The key factors propelling the growth of the market is the high prevalence of chronic diseases, increasing use of POC (Point-of-care) diagnostics, advanced technologies, and increasing awareness and acceptance of personalized medicine. The increasing government healthcare expenditure and consumer’s healthcare spending are also responsible for the growth of the market.The increase in the US in vitro diagnostics market is majorly due to the high prevalence of chronic diseases, such as heart diseases, cancer, asthma, and diabetes. It is estimated that these diseases are responsible for the majority of deaths in the United States, killing more than 1.7 million US citizens annually. Thus, IVDs have proved to be beneficial in managing these chronic conditions. IVDs help in the detection of early warning signs and individual risk factors, creating new opportunities for prevention and early intervention.There are also emerging technological innovations, such as lab-on-a-chip, wearable devices, and POC diagnostics that are increasingly becoming an important part of the healthcare landscape. These POC diagnostic products have been developed to be used on a patient’s bedside in hospitals, to get instant results without the need of sending the samples to the lab. Thus, owing to the ease of use and the ability to provide instant results, the use of POC diagnostics in the United States is increasing rapidly.
As per the scope of the report, in vitro diagnostics are the medical devices and consumables utilized to perform in vitro tests on various biological samples. They are basically used for the diagnosis of various medical conditions. These in vitro diagnostics products can be instruments, reagents, or any system used for the diagnosis of diseases.

Italian banks’ asset-quality trends positive through 2018

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 10 settembre 2018

Scope has long indicated that it views the large stock of Italian non-performing exposures (NPEs) as a legacy issue, and manageable for most Italian banks. From their peak, NPEs had declined by a quarter to EUR 258bn by March 2018. In a report out today, Scope says the rapid decline in NPEs will continue and expects gross sector NPEs to fall to around EUR 200bn by the end of 2018 and below EUR 150bn in 2019.Just as growth in 2017 was driven by UniCredit’s EUR 17bn Project Fino portfolio sale, 2018 has seen several mega-deals, including the EUR 24bn GACS-assisted NPL securitisation by MPS; the EUR 18bn NPL sale by the Venetian banks to SGA; and the EUR 10.8bn transaction between Intesa and Intrum. BPM and UBI also completed sizeable transactions (EUR5.1bn and EUR3.5bn, respectively), and several smaller banks transacted significant deals.
Intesa (A, Stable) and UniCredit (A, Stable) have both published business plans which explicitly include NPE reduction as a strategic priority and they have already executed significant actions aimed at such reductions. Both banks are rapidly progressing towards their asset-quality targets and will in Scope’s view over-deliver.In Q2 2018, Intesa reported a gross NPE ratio of 9.3% (net NPE ratio 4.6%). That’s already half way to the long-term target in the first six months of the bank’s four-year plan.UniCredit is only midway through Transform 2019, initially presented in December 2016. Since then, it has improved on its targets twice: in December 2017 it revised down its 2019 NPE ratio target to 7.8% (from 8.4%) and in the Q2 2018 results presentation it slightly reduced the 2018 target for non-core run-down to EUR 19bn from EUR 19.2bn. The run-down of non-core should be completed by 2021.Troiano added a general note of caution, however: “There are some clouds on the horizon, mostly related to policy uncertainty following the March elections,” he said.However, the renewal of the GACS scheme until March 2019 will likely continue to support the market in the last quarter of the year and into the beginning of 2019, according to Scope.On the political front, the agreement between League and M5S seeks to undo a series of reforms that Scope had deemed positive. Specific to banks, the government agreement mentions the suppression of any regulation that allows action against debtors without court authorisation. This would lengthen NPE recovery time and probably lower recovery rates for banks. The roll-back of pension reform is another key point of the government agreement.On top of this, the macroeconomic outlook has softened: in July, the Bank of Italy cut its GDP growth forecast for 2018 from 1.5% to 1.3%, and for 2019 from 1.2% to 1.0%. If the uncertainty has a more prolonged impact on growth, banks could be looking at a new wave of credit deterioration while also reducing investor appetite for NPE sales.

Yardi Matrix Report Documents October Rent Trends

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 15 novembre 2017

SacramentoSacramento. Seasonal factors and an extended deceleration in national rent levels combined to reduce U.S. rents by $4 in October, according to a survey of 121 markets by Yardi Matrix. The drop to $1,358, coming at the beginning of the last quarter when rent growth slows due to seasonal factors, was no surprise. Moreover, the multifamily sector is still decelerating from cycle highs in 2016. “Nationally, rents are only $5 off their all-time peak set in August and are $30 above their level a year ago,” the report states.Houston, deluged by Hurricane Harvey in August, saw rents rise 0.8% year-over-year through October, an improvement over -0.2% in September and the first positive month in the metro since July 2016. Harvey put approximately 45,000 apartments and more than 100,000 housing units out of commission.
Year-over-year rent growth leaders in October were Sacramento, Calif.; Las Vegas; Orlando, Fla.; California’s Inland Empire; and the Twin Cities metro in Minnesota.View the full October Yardi Matrix report for additional detail and insight into 121 major U.S. real estate markets.Yardi Matrix is a business development and asset management tool for investment professionals, equity investors, lenders, and property managers who underwrite and manage investments in commercial real estate.

New scientific report shows positive economic trends for EU fishing fleet

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 25 ottobre 2017

illegal fishing activitiesAccording to the latest Annual Economic Report, the overall economic performance of the EU fishing fleet improved again in 2015. While marginally profitable in 2009, the EU fleet registered record-high net profits of EUR 798 million in 2015 and estimates for 2016 and 2017 point towards further increases in profitability. The report also demonstrates that economic performance stagnates where fleets depend on stocks which are still overfished or overexploited. More and more fleets that exploit stocks sustainably see clear improvements in their profitability and salaries. In 2015, the EU fleet’s gross value added, i.e. the contribution of the fishing sector to the economy through wages and gross profit, amounted to €3.9 billion. This represents a 16% increase compared to 2013. Average salaries in the EU fleet have also increased while average fuel consumption has decreased. Fuel use efficiency has improved, with fuel costs amounting to 15% of the total revenue in 2015, compared to 24% in 2008. This is largely because fleets tend to operate more efficiently. Karmenu Vella, Commissioner for environment, maritime affairs and fisheries, said: “It is encouraging to see that the positive trend of the last years has resulted in higher salaries for fishermen, bigger profits for the fishing sector and more value added for the EU’s fishing and coastal communities. This clearly shows that our joint commitment towards more sustainable fishing pays off. But more efforts are needed to allow also small scale coastal fleets, in particular in the Mediterranean and Black Sea, to fully benefit from this positive trend. Continued progress towards Maximum Sustainable Yield (MSY) in all sea basins will therefore be a precondition for achieving economic viability.” The 2017 Annual Economic Report on the EU Fishing Fleet is based on data provided by national authorities and the result of combined work by economic experts from the Scientific, Technical and Economic Committee of Fisheries and the Commission.

“Worldwide Aortic Aneurysm Market Trends and Drivers, Restraints, and Opportunities 2017-2023”

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 13 agosto 2017

Aortic AneurysmThe Global Aortic Aneurysm Market is estimated to witness a CAGR of 6.6% during the forecast period 2017-2023. The aortic aneurysm market is analyzed based on three segments – type, product types, and regions. The increasing lifestyle diseases and smoking population are the factors that increase the chances for aortic aneurysm. Along with this, the growing aging population, favorable reimbursement, and technological advancements in products are driving the growth of the aortic aneurysm market. However, lack of awareness about the disease, stringent regulatory approval procedures, and risk associated with the procedure are hampering the growth of the market. The main unmet need in the market is endoleaking, which increases the mortality rate.Currently, the market players are developing technologically advanced stent grafts for the treatment of complex aortic aneurysm repairs. The EVAR segment contributed more than 70% of the total market share in 2016. A major focus in this segment is expected to drive the growth of the aortic aneurysm market in the future. The market of aortic aneurysm is dominated by Cook Medical, Medtronic PLC, and W.L. Gore and Associates, who occupy around 85% of the market share. Other small players are adopting various strategies to increase their market share. Endologix acquired Trivascular to expand its product portfolio, thereby being able to address the current and future needs in the aortic aneurysm market.

Endocrinologia: le novità del CUEM

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 8 luglio 2016

Brescia. santa_giulia_brescia_010_choistro_san_salvatoreL’acromegalia è la patologia che deforma il viso e le estremità degli arti e determina ingrandimento degli organi interni in età adulta, causata da un eccesso di ormone della crescita (GH) che porta ad un relativo aumento dell’IGF-1 ed è determinato nel 95-99% dei casi da un tumore (adenoma) dell’ipofisi che insorge tra i 20 e i 40 anni. Si tratta di una condizione relativamente rara, con una prevalenza di 40-70 casi per milione di abitanti, interessa soggetti adulti anche in età giovanile che entrano in una spirale di problemi invalidanti, dalla modificazione della forma del corpo, l’ingrandimento di arti e volto, l’aumento delle dimensioni degli organi interni come il cuore e lo sviluppo di gravi complicanze metaboliche come il diabete mellito assai recentemente analizzato in un articolo del gruppo di Brescia sulla prestigiosa rivista Trends in Endocrinology and Metabolism. Si tratta di una patologia lenta ed insidiosa che spesso riceve una diagnosi tardiva, circa 8-10 anni dopo l’insorgenza del tumore ipofisario, quando compaiono i segni clinici evidenti talvolta anche a livello del campo visivo con effetti a lungo termine irreversibili.
Questo significa che molti pazienti non vengono trattati adeguatamente o vengono trattati in ritardo accumulando un maggior rischio di vedere la propria vita ridotta sino a 10 anni e un tasso di mortalità doppio rispetto alla popolazione generale della stessa età.
“Ecco perché è necessario mobilitare e concentrare l’attenzione dei clinici sui primissimi segni per intervenire efficacemente con una terapia che riduca mortalità, prevenga le recidive del tumore asportato chirurgicamente o ne riduca le dimensioni preservando la corretta funzionalità della ghiandola prima che il danno sia fatto” spiega il Prof. Giustina, Ordinario di Endocrinologia all’Università di Brescia e Co-Presidente del CUEM i cui esperti saranno riuniti a congresso a Brescia il 7 e 8 luglio prossimi “Eppure le attuali terapie non sempre sono in grado di raggiungere gli obiettivi terapeutici: tra il 30 e il 40% dei pazienti non raggiunge il controllo biochimico nonostante le cure, situazione che si traduce in un progressivo e inesorabile peggioramento della qualità di vita dei soggetti acromegalici che vedono i sintomi aumentare e peggiorare. Per non parlare dell’aspettativa di vita che si riduce a 68 anni per gli uomini e a 74 per le donne”.
Il nuovo farmaco ‘analogo della somatostatina’ (pasireotide) presenta un ampio profilo di affinità di legame per quattro dei cinque sottotipi recettoriali della somatostatina, con un risultato di più elevata efficacia. Nello studio PAOLA ha ottenuto il controllo di malattia in circa il 20% dei pazienti non ben controllati dagli analoghi della somatostatina di prima generazione
Cosa ci possiamo aspettare da pasireotide in acromegalia? “Un cambio di marcia nella terapia dell’acromegalia. E’ una possibilità concreta per i pazienti ‘non responder’ con le attuali terapie e per i quali esistono importanti ‘unmet needs’ ossia necessità insoddisfatte” afferma Giustina “Pasireotide viene somministrato con una singola iniezione intramuscolare ogni 4 settimane e permette la riduzione o il controllo della massa tumorale, migliorando sia i segni che i sintomi della malattia. Il tipo di somministrazione invece migliora notevolmente il comfort dei pazienti e quindi l’aderenza alla terapia”. Approvato nel 2014 arriva ora sul mercato italiano.

Brits Look to Malaga for a Jubilee Bank Holiday Break

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 9 marzo 2012

Malaga

Image via Wikipedia

London, (PRNewswire) -Data collected by dealchecker.co.uk shows that when it comes to taking advantage of this year’s extra four day weekend, Brits have their eyes cast to Spain- dealchecker.co.uk, a leading online holiday specialist, say that many Brits are already thinking about how they will be spending the additional long weekend afforded to them by the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. Customer enquiry trends for visitors to dealchecker.co.uk reveal that Brits are looking to use their extra time off to escape to sunnier climes, with flights to Malaga proving to be the most popular enquiry for the Jubilee bank holiday weekend. dealchecker.co.uk say that having an additional long weekend to play with could be making Brits more adventurous about where they spend their short breaks. Mark Attwell, MD of dealchecker.co.uk, comments: “Malaga has been an enduringly popular holiday destination for many years, but on long weekends the tradition for Brits has often been to staycation. We here at dealchecker.co.uk think that the four additional days off in a row this year, brought about by the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, could be tempting Brits into jetting abroad rather than staying at home.” Although it was the stand-out destination for customer enquiries, Malaga isn’t the only Mediterranean destination Brits are eyeing up for their long weekend. Flights to Faro, Alicante, Majorca, Tenerife, Bodrum and Ibiza also proved popular with visitors and dealchecker.co.uk say this could mark the start of a new trend for British travellers. Attwell continues: “The dwindling cost of flights to Mediterranean destinations has been inviting more and more holidaymakers to head to the Med for their holidays, from long two-week stays to shorter jaunts for some weekend sunshine. As prices for flights and accommodation continue to drop, we foresee that more travellers will be choosing to spend their long weekends in exciting overseas destinations rather than staycationing.” dealchecker.co.uk was founded in June 2005.

Report analyzing long-term development trends

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 23 ottobre 2010

On 4th November 2010, at 10 a.m. EST, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) will publish on line, in print and in 10 languages the 20th anniversary edition of the annual Human Development Report, The Real Wealth of Nations: Pathways to Human Development.  The Report provides new insights into the trends and patterns of development and introduces measurement innovations on inequality, gender and acute poverty. The 2010 Human Development Report will be launched at the UN by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, UNDP Administrator Helen Clark and Nobel laureate Amartya Sen, who helped conceive the Human Development Index (HDI) and the overall human development approach. Lead author Jeni Klugman will present the main findings of the 2010 Report.  The original 1990 Human Development Report, written by a team of independent experts led by the late economist Mahbub ul Haq, argued that “people are the real wealth of a nation,” and introduced the HDI – a composite measure of health, education and income – as an alternative to purely macroeconomic assessments of national progress. The 2010 Report celebrates and continues that legacy of innovation.  The 2010 Report will be available on line and in print in Arabic, Catalan, Chinese, English, French, German, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish. Summaries of the Report will be available in additional languages, including Basque, Italian, Polish, Swedish and Vietnamese. A full press kit will be available in Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian, and Spanish.  Six broadcast quality videos accompany the Report and will be freely available for use by broadcast outlets. Five of the videos portray multi-generational families from Brazil, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Indonesia, Kenya and Morocco telling how their own lives and countries have changed over the past 40 years. The sixth video features an interview with Amartya Sen discussing the HDI’s impact and origins. The Report’s multilingual website will be re-launched on 4 November, with extensive, interactive new data resources covering most of the world’s nations, which can be used to track changes in countries over time. Visitors are invited to create their own development indices using the latest statistics.  The full series of Reports since 1990 will be available on the Human Development Report website in the latest PDF formats, for review and free downloading, along with all the indices and other statistical tables produced for the 2010 Report. The site will include new country profiles for all UN Member States.

2nd “New trends meeting”

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 2 ottobre 2010

Terrasini (PA), Saturday 2nd October 2010 at Piazza Duomo in Terrasini, starting at 18:00, there will be held 2nd “New Trends Meeting” organized by the Music and Culture Association.
The association explicitly refers to the extraordinary experiences of social anti-mafia that were, in the late ’70s, the “music and culture club” and “OM Group”, which merged later into “Radio Aut”.
On the stage of Terrasini will be performing artists and ensembles that choose not to adhere to the models proposed by the music and show business and they share their “Sicilianity” and the involvement in promoting the culture of legality through their art. At the meeting will take part: Alfio Antico, Gaspare Cucinella, Mario Crispi and Arenaria, Arie di Sicilia, Ipercussonici, Giacomo Sferlazzo, Clara Salvo, Murra, Ultravixen, Om, Collettivo Impastato, Giampiero Mazzone, Su’ddocu: Annamaria Tammaro and Margherita Ortolani, DNA Sud, Libere Note with D. Li Puma and Moffo Schimmenti.
During the evening Alfio Antico will deliver the 1st prize Enzo Barbarino in memory of the cultural operator who, in the ’80s, worked to promote sicilian folk music in the area between Terrasini and Cinisi, in a time where our roots were about to lose together with the last great songwriters and performers. The first edition of the meeting was held in 1976 on the beach Magaggiari in Cinisi. Peppino Impastato and his companions had understood what was the unifying power of music in the fight against the mafias and its social and cultural function of dissent and protest against the political system.
