The Japanese baby food market is expected to increase by over 5% at current prices by 2018

Baby Food In Japan analyses the trends in the baby food market for 2012-2016, with forecasts to 2018. It examines how live birth rates, breastfeeding trends, the economic crisis, new product and packaging developments, changing attitudes and safety concerns have affected the market for baby milks, cereals, meals, drinks and finger foods.

Report Highlights:

Pharmacies continue to account for a significant share of all baby food sales in value terms, thanks to their importance in milks. Other outlets such as supermarkets and convenience stores have, however, been steadily eroding pharmacies' share, although the last few years have seen some revival in the fortune of pharmacies and other specialist outlets, due to their ability to offer a wider range of products than some of the supermarkets.

The future for the Japanese baby food market does not seem bright. Against the backdrop of a continuing fall in the number of births, retail sales are not expected to show any overall growth in real terms by 2018, although at current prices an increase of over 5% is forecast. The milks market is expected to continue to decline. If a slight upturn occurs in the economy, this will be made up of baby milk and other baby food/drink products.

A number of factors lie behind the overall trend of falling figures, including changing lifestyles, women marrying later, the economic slump in which Japan has been plunged for the past decade or so, non-child-friendly employment policies which have been very slow to change, the phenomenon of "parasite singles" (men and women aged 20 to 34 who remain in the parental home, despite being employed, contribute little to the household and postpone marriage), and a general mood which is not buoyant, particularly in the wake of the 2011 tsunami.

UK Dairy Industry - How well do you know the market?

Dairy Market Insights Report United Kingdom is an indepth analysis of Key Companies, Brands, Volume, Value and Segmentation Trends and Opportunities in the Dairy Drinks & Food Markets

The dairy market in the United Kingdom is well established and mature, with very little innovation apparent across the board, with only fermented milk demonstrating any impressive long term growth. 

Additional drivers for the market include:

o Dairy farmers uncertain of their futures as the industry faces another challenging year. This is in spite of various key players increasing their average price per liter paid to farmers throughout the year.

o Public concerns over calorie content spur low fat product development, but the industry remains largely uninspired. This is in spite of new EU directives about health claims permitted on packaging, causing the dairy industry to adjust in many ways.

o Brand loyalty is low and product quality is becoming a more important influence, as are health considerations.

o Opportunities exist for the development of more value added products in all categories but these are generally not translating into significant volume growth, partially due to the conservative nature of the UK consumer.

Companies Featured

Unternehmensgruppe Theo Muller, Dairy Crest, Danone Group, Arla, Irish Dairy Board, FrieslandCampina, mars, Dunns River, General Mills, Yakult, Nestle, Unilever, White Wave, Hain Celestial Group, Danish Dairy Board, Fonterra, Mondelez International, Lactalis Group, Bel Group, Emmi, Yeo Valley, Cadbury Schweppes, Nobel Dessert Holdings, GlaxoSmithKline, Holland & Barrett, My Goodness Ltd.

U.S. Neuromodulation, Neurovascular, Neurosurgical and Monitoring Device Market

According to a new report the  U.S. Neuromodulation, Neurovascular, Neurosurgical and Monitoring Device Market will grow to over $5 billion by 2020. This growth will be fuelled by favourable reimbursement, increasing neurological procedure growth and extensive technological advancement, especially in the area of Neuromodulation.

Hydrocephalus can result when absorption of fluid into the bloodstream is hindered, resulting in an accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). This condition can result in an increased intracranial pressure inside of the skull, tunnel vision, mental disability, progressive enlargement of the head and it may even cause death.  “CSF leakage occurs in 2% to 3% of all head injuries, thus making it a prevalent condition in the hospital emergency room,” says Dr. Zamanian, CEO of iData. In 2013, there were close to 58,000 cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) shunting procedures performed in the U.S.

Hydrocephalus is treated surgically by the insertion of a shunt – a flexible, plastic tube with a one-way valve – into the ventricular system of the brain. The market for shunts represents an opportunity for innovation as companies attempt to curb the high failure rate wherein an estimated 40% of shunts fail within 2 years.  The market for shunts is increasing due to growth in procedures and more importantly a shift towards pressure adjustable shunts, which cost nearly four times the cost of a fixed pressure shunt.

Other key findings from the 2014 Neurological Report:
  • Deep Brain Stimulator:  Used as a treatment for treatment-resistant movement and affective disorders such as Parkinson’s disease, tremors and dystonia. Currently, Medtronic is the only competitor within this market. The expected entry of St. Jude Medical and Boston Scientific will provide a catalyst for significant market growth by 2020.
  • Neurovascular Flow Diversion Stenting: Has emerged as a new and promising endovascular treatment for aneurysms. Covidien’s Pipeline, the only FDA approved flow diversion device, restores original, natural blood circulation while providing permanent long-term occlusion. The market will grow at a CAGR of 25% by 2020.
