Cardiac Pacemakers – Medical Devices Pipeline Assessment, 2016

Cardiac Pacemakers Overview

A Cardiac Pacemakers is a device designed to regulate the beating of the heart by providing electrical impulses delivered by the electrodes contacting the heart muscle. It can be a single chamber or dual chamber type.

A single chamber pacemaker is a device which has a single pacing lead placed into a chamber of the heart. This could be the atrium or ventricle. Leads and electrodes are not tracked here. One unit refers to one single chamber pacemaker.

Dual chamber pacemakers have pacing leads in two chambers of the heart. One lead paces the atrium and one paces the ventricle. This approach more closely matches the natural pacing of the heart. These types of pacemakers can co-ordinate the function between the atria and the ventricles. Leads and electrodes are not tracked here. One unit refers to one dual chamber pacemaker.

Global Urological Cancer Market to 2022

Strong Market Growth Expected, Driven by the Predicted Emergence of Targeted Therapies for Bladder Cancer and Increasing Prostate and Kidney Cancer Prevalence

Within urological cancers, there are a number of premium products that attract substantial and even blockbuster revenues. These are currently hormonal therapies for prostate cancer (such as Zytiga and Xtandi) and angiogenesis inhibitors for kidney cancer (such as Sutent, Votrient and Inlyta). However, not all treatments generate strong revenues: chemotherapies gravitate towards generating relatively low revenues as they have become heavily genericized, although this also makes them cost effective and heavily utilized. There is high generic penetration in urological cancer treatments – in bladder and testicular cancer in particular, generics are used both as monotherapies and in combination with premium or other generic drugs.


Urological cancer revenues will increase from $17.9 billion in 2015 to $35.9 billion in 2022, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 10.39%. There is only one patent expiration due among the three blockbuster revenue-generating drugs of 2015 during the latter forecast period, while urological cancer prevalence will rise due to populations in developed countries becoming increasingly elderly and obese. Development and approval of immune checkpoint inhibitors will lower the associated toxicity of urological cancer therapies and increase their usage in typically poor-performance patients. Targeted treatment administration will increase patient’s overall survival and enable more rounds of chemotherapy to be given. It is predicted that two new urological cancer drugs for the treatment of bladder cancer will achieve blockbuster status by 2022.

Latest Factors Driving Change in Global Supply Chains

Globalization and trade liberalization have paved the way from a more open and truly international society, one in which free-trade is encouraged, as it allows organizations to operate and setup supply chains outside of their home countries. This is evident from regional analysis, which indicates that the majority of organizations with business operations in Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World have a supply chain presence in more than five countries.

FMCG organizations are increasing their supply chain presence and improving flexibility and responsiveness to drive global expansion


Managing this global supply chain, however, does not come without difficulties, with high transportation costs, long transit times, and frequent delays obstacles that organizations face on a frequent basis. Manufacturers have sought to address these factors by implementing strategies that will help make them more efficient, such as developing stronger ties with their clients and suppliers, and addressing issues as and when they arise.

Canadean’s Global Executives Survey: Latest Factors Driving Change in Global Supply Chains Survey examines executives’ opinion on key actions used for analyzing the credibility of foreign suppliers, country wise supply chain presence, and major challenges for supply chain. Organizations can analyze the impact of trade agreements and economic unions on a company’s performance, and assess the major advantages and disadvantages of free-trade agreements for organizations. Additionally, it examines the significance of local production and use of local ingredients and also identifies future focus areas for FMCG organizations.

Strategic Focus Report – Green IT and Virtualization

While corporations are not generally in the “business” of being green, environmentally sustainable strategies can be an effective way to achieve financial ends. With the recent broad adoption of the economics of environmentalism into the profit strategy of leading organizations, IT has a strategic opportunity to show “green” business value. Green IT in particular will grow, as companies adopt technologies with rapid payback times, whether they are power management systems, energy-efficient computers and servers, or facilities management technologies for offices and data centers. Moreover, green IT is becoming far more necessary not just to achieve corporate environmental goals, but as a way to cut down significantly on energy costs from data centers and company computer networks.

Key trends impacting the green IT & virtualization market
