ICT Investment Trends in Pharmaceuticals – Enterprise ICT Spending Patterns through to the end of 2015

Aging populations, an increase in those inflicted with chronic ailments that require more healthcare expenditure, government initiatives, and treatment advancements are expected to drive sector expansion.
ICT InvestmentTrends in Healthcare – Enterprise ICT Spending Patterns through to the end of2015
presents the findings from a survey of  173 healthcare providers regarding their ICT investment trends.

The survey investigates how healthcare providers currently allocate their ICT budgets across the core areas of enterprise ICT expenditure: hardware, software, IT services, communications, and consulting.

The report illustrates the core technologies enterprises are investing in, including

  • business intelligence
  • content management
  • cloud computing 
- the survey also highlights the approach adopted by the healthcare providers to purchase technology.

Report highlights

Healthcare providers around the world are facing unprecedented change. While healthcare is primarily organized within national geographies, the issues that providers face are similar globally. Demographic changes, fiscal restraint, new technologies, and consumer expectations are creating significant challenges and opportunities in this sector. Kable expects the outlook for the global healthcare sector over the next few years to be positive.

However, in these unprecedented times, healthcare providers are cautiously planning their ICT investments; with a higher number of healthcare providers foreseeing a slight increase in their ICT budgets in 2014.

Kable’s survey illustrates that healthcare providers in countries such as the US (57%), Germany (56%), and France (40%) are set to increase their ICT investments, driven by technology trends such as mobile health, and personal health records (PHRs), the implementation of e-health systems, mobile applications, and clinical analytics. Moreover, information management will be the key priority for healthcare providers to meet continuously evolving compliance requirements, creating good scope for vendors with solutions in these areas.

Switzerland's Cards and Payments Industry: Emerging Opportunities, Trends, Size, Drivers, Strategies, Products and Competitive Landscape

The Swiss economy is prosperous, with low unemployment and a highly skilled workforce




The Swiss payment cards grew in value and volume terms during the review period (2009–2013). In terms of transaction value, payment cards grew from CHF111.3 billion (US$102 billion) in 2009 to CHF126.7 billion (US$136 billion) in 2013, at a review-period compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of just over 3%, and is anticipated to post a forecast-period (2014–2018) CAGR of just less than 3% to reach to CHF146 billion (US$161 billion) in 2018.

In terms of the number of cards in circulation, payment cards grew from over 16 million in 2009 to  just over 20  million in 2013, at a CAGR of over  5%, and are anticipated to post a forecast-period CAGR of just over 3% to reach just less than 30 million in 2018.


Report Highlights

Switzerland's Cards and Payments Industry: Emerging Opportunities, Trends, Size, Drivers, Strategies, Products and Competitive Landscape provides top-level market analysis, information and insights into Switzerland's cards and payments industry, including:

Several mobile payments (m-payments) solutions were promoted in the country during the review period. Some charge amounts to mobile phone bills, while others are linked to bank accounts or credit cards. Post Finance offers an m-payment solution that is connected to the customer’s account. Currently, m-payments are used at parking facilities, vending machines and mountain cabs where there is a mobile phone reception.       

M-payments grew significantly during the review period and are anticipated to provide scope for card-based payments over the forecast period. In terms of transaction value, both the credit and charge card markets recorded CAGRs of just less than 5% and just over 4% respectively. 

In 2013, the value of credit card transactions reported at point of sale (POS) terminals was significantly greater than that reported at ATMs, representing over 94% of the total credit cards transaction value. Similarly, the charge cards transaction value reported at POS terminals was greater than that reported at ATMs, representing just a little over 95% of the total charge cards transaction value. The increasing use of credit and charge cards at POS terminals for purchases, supported by banks offering bonus programs, reward points, cash back offers and discounts at partner retailers, will further increase card transaction values over the forecast period. 

With growth in the payment cards instrument type, both in terms of the number of cards and transaction value, card fraud increased marginally at a CAGR of just less than 1% during the review period, from CHF94 million (US$86 million) in 2009 to CHF96 million (US$104 million) in 2013. Banks and Swiss authorities carry out periodic card fraud awareness campaigns and preventive measures to safeguard against card misuse.

Cider Market Insights United Kingdom

The market is enjoying a boost from younger consumers with a preference for cider, who are more likely to experiment with new flavors.


Cider Market Insights UK  provides a detailed overview of variety, distribution and packaging data across the region for 2014. 

Promotional activity and product innovation have been the key to the positive results over the last year, but this refreshing and robust market is gearing up for the next – set to see yet more growth! 

This report highlights textual analysis, revealing those dynamic drivers behind the data – giving you a crisp, clear picture of the current market. An essential tool for experienced professionals, new players and anyone with a stake in the scrumptious, soaring cider industry!

Report Highlights

The UK cider category is forecast for further growth in 2014 which may be helped by good summer weather and increased consumption around the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. Volume growth is forecast at 1% for the year.

Growth in the cider category is expected to be driven by the demand for flavored ciders and new innovation in these flavors, of which ciders have been typically good products for development of new variants. Seasonal ciders have also increased in popularity in recent years and we expect to see further growth in this in 2014. Weston’s recently announced their plans in the autumn to introduce a mulled cider in a 225cl bag in box to the on trade.

The trend towards premium ciders is also expected to continue with growth expected in this sub segment in 2014. There has also been a surge in interest towards craft ciders which is likely to increase. This has been largely driven by consumer demand for local products away from mainstream brands of cider. We expect to see retailers cater and increase shelf space for these products.

The outlook for ciders has been dramatically improved now that the threat from minimum pricing has been removed. Government estimates suggested that the cider market would nearly be halved if the policy was introduced. The cider industry however will face pressures in relation to inflating raw material costs, production costs and increased competition from ciders and other drinks. Promotions will continue to play a key role in promoting growth in the UK off trade.

Functional Drinks - the hot new topic in the beverages industry




What are functional drinks? Functional drinks are beverages that have a beneficial effect on the body beyond basic nutrition and hydration. Health claims can be both general and specific, for instance a drink may claim a general benefit – such as boosting happiness – or something more measurable – such as improving digestive function. They can be measured based on how they meet various consumer need states, with a spectrum that ranges from products that are less ‘bad’ for consumers than other offerings to those which offer specific and measurable medical benefits.


In Europe, the number of approved health claims in food is extremely low, making Europe a hard market for manufacturers, but also an important one, as it provides a gold standard test for health claims. Japan is at the other end of the scale with five times as many approvals than the whole of Europe – making Japan an excellent test market that stands out amongst developed countries for innovative, new products.
