Bangladesh Country Risk Report Q1 2016, New Report Launched

Core Views

  • Bangladesh’s trade balance is likely to worsen slightly in FY2015/16 (July-June) as imports will continue to surge on the back of a strong taka. However, a modest recovery in the export sector and strong remittance growth will lend support to the current account balance, which should in turn help to maintain external stability. As such, we forecast Bangladesh’s current account deficit as a share of GDP to come in at -0.5% of GDP, versus -0.2% in FY2014/15. This reflects a relatively well-balanced economy, which should be positive for medium-term growth.
  • Bangladesh’s economy will likely grow by 6.5% in FY2015/16 (July-June), similar to the rate in FY2014/15, on the back of robust expansions in the industrial and services sectors. However, the global economic slowdown and domestic security threats pose downside risks to our optimistic view.
  • Bangladesh’s budget deficit as a share of GDP will widen to 4.3% in FY2015/16 as expenditure growth will likely outstrip revenue growth over the coming months. This will bode poorly for Bangladesh’s economy over the medium term as increased government borrowing will likely raise deposit and lending rates, which will in turn crowd out private investments.
  • Bangladesh Bank (BB) will likely hold off on interest rate cuts in FY2015/16 (July-June) as it remains handcuffed by volatile headline inflation and rising core inflation in the economy. Moreover, the central bank’s intervention in the foreign exchange market will continue to exert upside pressure on money supply growth, which will likely keep the consumer price index elevated. Over the coming months, BB will sustain its selective easing measures to support growth in the Bangladeshi economy.
  • The recent series of domestic terror attacks in Bangladesh could pose downside risks to political stability as the ruling Awami League appears to be trying to gain political mileage by blaming the opposition, Bangladesh Nationalist Party. The rise of domestic security threats could also have an adverse impact on the country’s economic recovery by deterring investors and weighing on the tourism sector.

Major Forecast Changes

We have revised Bangladesh’s real GDP growth forecast upwards to 6.5% in FY2015/16 (from 6.0% previously) as the stabilisation of the political climate will likely boost investor confidence and provide support for the country’s industrial and services sectors.

Austria Country Risk Report Q1 2016, New Report Launched

Core Views

  • Austrian real GDP growth will accelerate in 2016, but economic activity will lag behind regional peers despite improving external demand from the eurozone.
  • At a federal level, support for the Freedom Party (FPÖ) is continually on par with that of the SPÖ-ÖVP coalition. Given its strong performance in the Styria and Burgenland elections, we expect the FPÖ party to make further gains in the Upper Austria and Viennese elections in late 2015.

Key Risks To Outlook

  • Lacklustre consumer spending could result in a lower negative contribution from imports. This would bolster growth over the year though we do not feel this could significant deviate from forecasts in 2015.
  • Continually robust support for the far right Freedom Party in 2014 remains a salient political risk consideration.

Global Prenatal and Maternal Diagnostic Market To 2020; New Report Launched

Prenatal tests (fetus, embryos and newborns) currently on the market analyze chromosomes, DNA, RNA, genes, and/or gene products to determine whether an abnormality is present that is causative of a specific disease. Since 2011, the launch of noninvasive prenatal tests (NIPTs) is revolutionizing the prenatal screening industry providing detection rates of >99% and false positive rates of <0.1%. These screening results are only indicative of the risk and not confirmative. To confirm positive results of NIPT screening tests, prenatal diagnostic tests such as amniocentesis and chorionic villus sampling (CVS) are performed. Prior to NIPTs, ultrasound and maternal serum tests were routinely used to screen fetusus for genetic abnormalities.

Globally, 50 countries have effective newborn genetic test programs, the implementation of which is in various stages. In the U.S., four million newborns are tested annually, with 3,000 found to have metabolic and genetic diseases. The purpose of newborn screening is to identify affected newborns quickly and provide them with treatment to prevent mental retardation, prolonged illness and death. The newborn genetic screening market is crowded with different technologies, the common being tandem mass spectrometry, pulse oximetry, enzyme-based assays, DNA assays and electrophoresis.

Preimplantation genetic screening and preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGS/PGD) are genetic tests performed in eight-celled embryos before implantation during in vitro fertilization (IVF) for the detection of genetic abnormalities and sex. These tests can detect and diagnose chromosomal rearrangements, X-linked diseases and help in reducing the incidence of spontaneous abortions, increase implantation rates, prevent trisomic offsprings and avoid the risk of transmitting single gene disorders. However, PGS and PGD results are not 100% accurate and after pregnancy, if required the diagnostic tests such as amniocentesis and CVS are to be performed to confirm the positive results of PGS/PGD. In the U.S. alone, more than 63,000 babies were born through IVF in 2013 and compared to 2012 data; it was an increase of 2,000 births.

The most important development in the field of prenatal screening, is the introduction of NIPTs using cell-free fetal DNA (cffDNA) in 2011. Obstetricians and patients who are deterred by the 10% to 15% false positive rates of ultrasound screening and 5% false positive rates of maternal serum tests are eagerly embracing NIPTs which claim to have only <0.1% of false positive results.

Within just four years, molecular genetics firms have successfully produced eight different types of kits for the detection of genetic abnormalities in the fetus. These products have been gradually marginalizing the maternal serum tests and in another decade, maternal serum tests are expected to become obsolete. If, companies can develop NIPTs with a 100% accuracy rate, maternal serum tests, amniocentesis and CVS will all be completely overshadowed by NIPTs. Despite the growing popularity of NIPTs, maternal serum tests still continue to have some market due to their low price. While the maternal serum tests are available for just $x to $x, NIPTs are priced between $x and $x. However, Sequenom reportedly sold over x tests in 2013 and so pricing does not seem to be a deterrent factor. The introduction of technologies such as digital PCR and next-generation sequencing (NGS) or massively parallel sequencing (MPS) have also enabled accurate estimation of very small differences in chromosome-specific sequences in maternal blood.

The objective of this report is to provide an overview of the various technologies being employed for detecting genetic diseases in embryos, fetuses and newborns. The various chapters describe common pregnancy disorders, numerical chromosome disorders and structural chromosome disorders, single gene disorders inherited by fetuses, newborns and embryos. The global prenatal and maternal diagnostic test market is assessed with respect to:

  • Fetal Ultrasound
  • Prenatal MRI Screening
  • Maternal Serum Screening Tests
  • Noninvasive Prenatal Tests (NIPTs) using cffDNA
  • NIPTs by Product
  • Prenatal Diagnostic Invasive Tests
  • Newborn Screening for Genetic Diseases
  • Newborn Screening Market by Technology
  • Preimplantation Screening/Diagnosis (PGS/PGD)

SWOT and merger/acquisition analysis is also performed as is a comprehensive documentation of the legislation pertaining to newborn screening by geography and how clinical programs are implemented in developed and developing markets.

Emerging trends in associated markets are also analysed in order to give the reader a comprehensive overview of how prenatal and maternal diagnostic testing is affected by the following industries:

  • Molecular Diagnostics Market
  • Liquid Biopsy Market
  • Personalized Medicine Diagnostics Market
  • In vitro Diagnostics (IVD) Market

This is a comprehensive 359 page report strengthened with over 260 figures and tables. Published in January 2016, the GLOBAL PRENATAL & MATERNAL DIAGNOSTIC MARKET TO 2020 report by KellySciPub has a detailed overview of 114 companies in the market with specifics pertaining to financial and business strategy, current products on the market and pipeline products.

According to WHO, nearly 140 million babies are born every year, out of which 5 million die in the first month of life, mostly in developing countries. For example, in India, about 5% to 15% of sick newborns have a metabolic disorder. This emphasizes the need for newborn screening for preventing disability and death by early intervention, follow-up and counselling.

Globally, the use of maternal serum marker screening and ultrasound imaging for the detection of chromosome aneuploidies and other birth defects constitute a routine part of prenatal care in the first and/or second trimesters. Yet, both of these techniques have the disadvantages of high false positive rates, varying from 2% to 7%. If the results of these tests show that a fetus is at increased risk of aneuploidy, invasive approaches such as chorionic villus sampling (CVS) or amniocentesis are recommended for diagnosis.

Fetal Ultrasound Screening Market

Today, ultrasound is used on average five times per pregnancy before delivery. The fetal ultrasound screening market generated revenues of about $x million in 2014 with the potential to earn $x million in 2021, growing at a CAGR of x%. Fetal MRI prenatal screening is performed rarely, only when the ultrasound screening provides an ambiguous result and to detect suspected central nervous system (CNS) disorders in the fetus during the second trimester. The fetal MRI segment had generated estimated revenue of $x million in 2014 with a potential to earn $x million in 2021.

Maternal Serum Testing Market

The global maternal serum test market was worth $x million in 2014 and is forecast to grow and reach $x million by 2021. The market consists of test methods for:

  • Pregnancy-associated plasma protein (PAPP-A)
  • Alpha-fetoprotein (AFP)
  • Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG)
  • Estriol
  • Inhibin-A
  • Had it not been for the launch of noninvasive prenatal tests (NIPTs) in 2011, this market would have fared much better.

Noninvasive Prenatal Test Market

Noninvasive prenatal tests (NIPTs) are the future of prenatal screening and have shown signs of surpassing the traditional maternal serum test revenues by earning about $x million in 2014. With a CAGR of x%, this market is forecast to reach $x million in 2021.

Newborn Screening Market

Newborn screening is an accepted national health policy in about 52 countries. It is a well-entrenched routine of newborn care in the U.S., U.K., Japan, Australia and most western European countries for the last three decades. In the Asian continent, China, Philippines and Thailand have developed admirable newborn screening programs in a relatively short period of time. Mass spectrometry has become the standard technique for newborn screening. Using this technique, medical technologists are capable of screening as many as 30 metabolic disorders from a single sample of blood. The global market for newborn screening has been valued at $x million in 2014 and it will be worth about $x million by 2021.

Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis Market

Preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) has been in practice for more than twenty years in about 60 countries globally. PGD testing is performed to identify genetic defects in embryos. The tests are usually performed in cases of a known genetic defect, in late age pregnancy, or in patients with a history of repeated miscarriages. PCR, FISH, CGH, and SNP analysis are some of the most common techniques used, and PCR is the most widely used technology. The global market for PGD was worth about $x million in 2014 and this has been predicted to enlarge and reach $x million in 2021.

  • Assess the competitive dynamics in the UK cards and payments industry.
  • Gain insights into marketing strategies used for various card types in the UK.
  • Gain insights into key regulations governing the UK cards and payments industry.

Key Highlights

  • The UK government implemented the EU rule on the interchange fee cap effective from December 9, 2015. Under these new rules, the interchange fee for credit and debit cards are capped at 0.3% and 0.2%, respectively. The regulation is anticipated to have a major impact on profitability of the UK’s payment cards market. With a reduction in revenue, issuers are likely to cut card offerings and benefits for consumers, and instead look at new ways to generate revenue. One way could be to increase fees levied on debit and credit cards. Alternatively, high-street banks might put an end to free current accounts. The cap on interchange fees is expected to reduce card issuers’ revenue from consumer cards, but not commercial cards. Therefore, card issuers are likely to compensate for some of the lost revenue by issuing more commercial charge cards and credit cards.
  • The emergence of digital only banks is likely to accelerate a shift towards electronic payments in the UK. Atom Bank, which was granted a banking license by the Bank of England in June 2015, may become the country’s first digital only bank, allowing consumers to conduct banking transactions entirely online and via mobile phones. Other digital-only banks, such as the German-based Fidor Bank, Tandem Bank and Starling Bank, are also making their debut into the market.
  • The UK payment cards market has seen the uptake of contactless technology from 2013 onwards. According to the UK Cards Association, the number of contactless card transactions increased from 1.7 million in 2010 to 319.2 million in 2014. In September 2015 alone, 103.2 million contactless transactions were made, including 89.7 million debit cards and 13.5 million credit and charge cards. One of the key drivers of contactless payments has been its use in London’s public transport system. In 2014, there were 17 million contactless payments in bus journeys and 14 million in rail trips. To drive growth in contactless payments, the UK Cards Association increased the spending limit on contactless transactions from the existing US$31.5 (GBP20) to US$47.9 (GBP30) in September 2015. This move is anticipated to further propel contactless transactions in the UK.

Thailand: Operator and Government Fixed and Mobile Investment to Drive Data-Centric Telecom Growth; New Report Launched

Thailand’s telecommunications market is among the largest markets in the South East Asia region and will generate revenue of $10.2bn in 2015. The telecom services revenue will grow at a CAGR of 7.5% over the 2015-2020 period, driven by growth in mobile services revenue, primarily from mobile data owing to increasing popularity of high-speed 3G and 4G services.

Fixed broadband and mobile data will be the highest-growing segments and will contribute to 15.4% and 36.6%, by 2020, respectively. Although Thailand is a prepaid-driven market, the number of prepaid subscribers will decline owing to the NBTC’s regulation on SIM registration. Further, Thailand will witness commercial 4G rollouts from 2016 onward post 4G auctions held in November 2015. In the fixed market, state-owned operator TOT will have a lead; however, it will experience tough competition from True and CAT in the fixed broadband segment. Operators will focus on converged offerings to drive subscriber growth and increase ARPS.

Key Findings

  • The overall telecom service revenue in Thailand is estimated to increase by 1.8% in US dollars (4.1% in local currency) versus 2014, to reach $10.2bn (Bt338bn) in 2015.
  • From 2015 to 2020, the Thai telecommunications market will see service revenue grow at a 7.5% CAGR in dollar terms, boosted by mobile and fixed broadband infrastructure developments.
  • This growth will be fueled by 4G service rollouts and 3G network coverage expansion, coupled with converged offerings and government initiatives to drive broadband adoption in education, healthcare and government sectors. Operators will invest in fiber deployments in the coming years.
  • Mobile revenue will account for 61.4% of the total telecom market in 2020. Mobile data will be an important driver of this trend, as it will expand at a 12.4% CAGR from 2015 to 2020.
  • We expect the number of fixed access lines – circuit-switched voice, VoIP and broadband – to increase to 11.9m in 2020.
  • AIS, the mobile leader, will maintain its share, facing aggressive competition from True and dtac. Entry of AIS in the fixed and pay-TV markets in 2015 will help the company maintain its lead thereby realizing new revenue opportunities. The fixed space remains dominated by TOT, however, it will face tough competition from True and CAT in the fixed broadband market.

Singapore: Operators Invest in LTE Improvements and Multiplay Offers as Regulator Set to Increase Competition; New Report Launched

The Singapore telecom market is among the most saturated and mature markets in Asia-Pacific and is estimated to generate telecom service revenue of $5.5bn by 2020. Mobile data will contribute nearly 37% of the total revenue, driven by proliferation of data-intensive apps, such as OTT and video. Operator investment in advanced technologies to boost indoor and outdoor LTE coverage will also be a major catalyst for growth of mobile data services in Singapore.

The renewal of LTE licenses due for 2015 and 2017 will further extend the LTE coverage and enable operators to launch innovative offers. The corporate segment will be a key focus area for all three MNOs, and operators will launch services catering to business users’ needs, such as content delivery, cloud, managed services, cybersecurity and mobility management.

Further, converged offerings will help operators to attract more customers in the coming years.
