Guacamole Market Seeing Innovation Due to Rising Avocado Prices and Demand

Posted on

With an estimated 100 million pounds (volume) worth guacamole market on a single day of Super Bowl, health benefits and rising awareness around it are giving guacamole and its major ingredient, Avocado, a huge boost in demand. Traditionally, the preference was to prepare guacamole at home with recipes that taste one’s family members. However, with the advent of all-time-moving lifestyles, people hardly have time to ‘cook’ for themselves and fast-paced lifestyles are one of the major reasons that guacamole market of pre-made and variety of products is gaining grounds.

With Avocado growing in limited atmospheric conditions, there is one section of guacamole industry opponents that care for Mexico seeing deforestation so that Avocado can be grown in larger quantity and exported to the U.S. More and more people are accepting guacamole with a variety of dishes, pushing the demand for Avocado sky-rocket and ultimately making Avocado farming a hugely lucrative business proposition. Initially, a ‘day-old’ guacamole consumption was not considered good due to effects it could have over one’s health. The guacamole market players and those dealing with Avocado, directly or indirectly, have now come up with an equipment called Avocado time machine that helps keep avocados green up to ten days, without adding preservatives, chemicals or additives and yet maintaining the health benefits.

Apart from the U.S., a country like New Zealand is seeing crimes due to increased Avocado consumption resulting into its shortage amidst rising local and global demand. Across the continent, a couple of months ago Britain saw recalling and removing of guacamole from one of its biggest supermarket chains on fear of guacamole containing salmonella. So, what the guacamole industry is seeing at global level is not only the growth and demand increments, but also the challenges it may have moving forward in terms of ingredient shortages, pricing, few negatives to the ‘all is well’ health benefits that are drawing consumers to go crazy as of date and much more. Another example of innovation sought in guacamole is the usage of watermelons that is being tried by several users. The ease of making it at home offers the innovation edge in form of varied recipes that may be tried by several common people.

On the other hand, with the craze of Avocado and guacamole market offerings, consulting firms like PWC easily utilize these as the base of providing ideas to businesses (grocers and supermarkets, for example) with an objective of providing a ‘community feeling’ as well as ‘engaging’ their customers in today’s social media driven times. Dating back to 2009, a study showed more than one of every three foodservice operations lists items on the menu which mention either Avocado or Guacamole. Growing consistently since them, the Avocado and Guacamole market are seeing great strides today and offer a lot of scope for innovation in their offerings.

2016 Intrauterine Device Market Insights: Regions, Products and more

Posted on

By 2019, intrauterine device market is projected to be worth more than $4 Billion as awareness about IUDs as one of the most beneficial contraceptives goes up and is supported by factual PR exercises. In 2015, global contraceptives market was estimated to be over $9 Billion and stood firm as the second largest women’s health market segment. For the next 4 to 5 years, it is estimated that the need for secure (because of growing fear of STDs, unintended pregnancies) and cost effective (initial IUD offerings were too costly) contraception will help the intrauterine device market grow steadily across the globe.

In the US, intrauterine devices are slowly gaining traction with leading medical organizations now recommending IUDs as first-line contraceptive choice for women, which earlier was the not the case. Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) historically lead the intrauterine device market, followed by Americas and Asia Pacific. With a majority of European women opting for contraceptives in order to avoid unplanned pregnancies and females in Africa trying to save themselves from diseases, the knowledge about IUDs is spreading via government efforts, NGO programs as well as intrauterine device market companies creating awareness via their social marketing efforts. Companies are focusing on improvised IUD product offerings such as the fourth generation IUDs with a life span of 25 years. With one of the highest efficacy rates in controlling pregnancies, these new intrauterine devices are useful as ultra-long, efficient and reversible long-acting reversible contraceptives (LARC).

APAC is expected to grow at one of the fastest rates for IUDs market in coming years due to its population, increasing disposable income and lifestyle changes bringing rising awareness of contraceptives and hence intrauterine devices. Though Americas is the second largest market for IUDs, the growth is forecast to be steady / stagnant with focus moving towards innovating products that help ensure consistency in growth. Overall, the industry is competitive, yet susceptible to various challenges (R&D, technical, etc), which can enable inorganic growth within the market. As Technavio says, “local and regional vendors in this market compete on the basis of product price, quality, innovation, service, reputation, distribution, and promotion to gain maximum market traction during the forecast period”.

Several studies emphasize the potential of long-acting reversible contraceptive methods, including Intrauterine Devices and subdermal implants, to reduce unintended pregnancy rates. These studies show that the risk of pregnancy among women using long-acting methods is much lower than among those relying on shorter-acting methods such as condoms and the birth control pill.

How is the IoT Procurement Market Growing in 5 Years?

Posted on

Competitive IoT procurement market situations and trends are analyzed for global regions as well as specifically for United States in newly released IoT procurement research reports now available with

Generic Overview on Internet of Things (IoT) and Procurement:

The Internet of Things (IoT) is changing how the things operate, connect, communicate, integrate and share information. Be it supply chains, IT infrastructures, small or big business processes, simple or complicated solutions, IoT is playing an increasingly critical role in ensuring businesses run smoothly, effectively and more productively over a period of time. However, the ‘smooth functioning’ of IoT platforms and solutions depend on a lot of factors that are individual segments of a fast developing Internet of Things ecosystem. The digital transformation risks add a value on one side and an equally big challenge on the other not only for IoT procurement market but also for the overall ecosystem.

While adopting IoT, organizations have multiple products and services to consider and various vendors / players offering these IoT products and services. How does procurement of these IoT channels impact the overall enterprise productivity is a major question businesses find difficult to answer at the onset. Not limited to buying servers and a software or two, the IoT journey needs businesses to focus on vendors they get involved with – for the vendors’ scaling capacities, on-site and after sales services, help with troubleshooting and fixing things during emergency situations and much more. Moreover, with sub-segments being small industries in themselves – M2M, platforms, IIoT, wearable technology, all things ‘smart’ and others – , the IoT procurement market services are gaining importance.

With governments across the world also pushing digital transformation in public sector, smart cities are trending around the globe and again Internet of Things (IoT) is at the centre of it all. The IoT procurement challenges become much more grand in their scope and execution within the public sector as this involves huge data gathering and analyzing requirements. Departments covering energy, water, transportation and much more make the ‘connectivity’ process all the more complicated and again increasing the importance of Internet of Things as well as IoT procurement in the whole process. How does a decision maker – in private or public sector – pick on vendors, products and/or solutions that may meet the required demands? What are the basics of an IoT platform?

Indian Chocolate Market Trends, China and Global Updates

Posted on

The Indian chocolate market is worth approx. INR 7000+ crores growing in double digits annually and projected to rise at 30% by 2020 driven by e-commerce as well as the traditional retail channels seeing sustained demand. While urban India consumes a majority of these chocolate sales, rural India is said to have around 10% to 15% contribution to overall chocolate category growth in recent times. Major players and chocolate companies are targeting increasing penetration in newer and these rural areas while maintaining their position and growth in existing regions.

Economic factors have hit China and Brazil chocolate market in recent past and the sales growth of chocolates have slowed down in both of these markets. With manufacturers seeing a very low scope of growth in these markets, India and to certain extent Japan, accompanied with Middle East are the countries/regions helping the chocolate industry sustain the targeted double digit yearly growth. While India has major international chocolate brands fighting for their market share, Japan chocolate market offers a challenge to these players, which is very ‘local’ in nature. Companies are adapting to these local flavours and preferences to tap into the chocolate growth scope of the region. In the Middle East, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and UAE are showing hope of acquiring additional chocolate sales for these manufacturers. In developed markets like the U.S., chocolate companies are trying new flavors, which are either local to a place or are trending across other F&B segments and applicable in chocolate.

The cocoa primarily used in chocolates come in multiple grades and cocoa source countries are competing hard for having a ‘premium’ status for their products. Though fine flavor cocoa currently accounts for a small portion of worldwide cocoa exports, looking at the wine market development, organizations and businesses have starting giving importance to ‘premium’ at this very early stage. As consumers loosen their pockets by valuing high quality chocolate products, the demand and consumption of fine flavor cocoa is projected to sky rocket. Led by Ecuador, newer countries and specifically from the Asian region (Indonesia, Vietnam) are joining the ecosystem not only to create healthy competition but also to tap on the market before others.

India, on the other hand, is still opening up to usage of specific ingredients in chocolates, with a recent draft proposal that may allow vegetable fats, which were not allowed in chocolate within India all these years. India is aiming to meet the CODEX and European standards via this change and adopt international industry standards. has a new research addition titled ‘A Study Of The Indo-China Chocolate Market 2016’ that says India and China are amongst the four countries projected to have the highest chocolate market growth in the period 2015-2020. Other countries include Mexico and Brazil. In 2014, the chocolate market in China generated sales worth approximately USD 3.2 billion and is projected to grow to USD 4.4billion by 2020.

Allulose Set to Gain Market Share in Food and Beverages Industry

Posted on

Update (July 7 2016): now offers another allulose market report titled Global and China Allulose Sales Market Report 2020 featuring Matustani Chemical, Tate & Lyle and CJ CheilJedang.

A low calorie sweetener, ‘Allulose’ got introduced to F&B market and manufacturing companies in 2015. It is believed to produce the texture and taste of sugar with approximately 90% less calories. Another advantage of allulose is that it is not metabolized in the body to form glucose and hence the body remains practically calorie free.

Allulose (also known as psicose and D-psicose) is Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use as a food ingredient. FDA has allowed the use of allulose for cakes, pies pastries, frostings, biscuits, carbonated and non carbonated beverages, jams and jellies, yogurts, chewing gums, ice creams cookies, coffee mixes and more.

Matsutani America, Inc, Chicago has launched a form of this sugar which is branded as Astraea allulose. It is 0.2 calories per gram as compared to 4 calories per gram for sugar. It is 70% as sweet as sucrose.

It is believed to be a useful sweetener for several foods of the food and beverage segment including confections, beverage, bakery, dairy, chewing gums and other sweet goods. It does not carry the long lasting after taste unlike its synthetic counterparts.  Astraea is created using a process known as “Izmoring,” coined by Ken Izumori, Ph.D. When a monosaccharide reacts with a microbial enzyme, it causes the sugar to change from one type to another.

In line with introducing a low calorie sugar to the world is Tate & Lyle, P.L.C, London. This company has introduced Dolcia Prima allulose, early this year. The sweetener has made its way in the United States and Chile as it has got the approval and is expected to receive an approval in other countries soon.

Similar to Astraea allulose, Dolcia Prima allulose also is believed to contain 90% fewer calories than regular sugar. It’s probable applications also include dairy products, confectionery item, jams and jellies, baked foods and beverages.

With the world in search of a low calorie sugar since years, allulose is a potential market break through and is believed to be dominating the food and beverage industry in years to come. To get an in depth insight on the allulose market and its prospects, has an expertly analyzed data report on allulose available at

Market of Magnetic Refrigeration Technology Evolving at a Rapid Pace

Posted on

Magnetic refrigeration is a promising technology that uses solid, non-volatile magnetic materials as the active components and alcohol or water as the medium for heat transport. This new technology is attracting more players and manufacturers in magnetic refrigeration market due to the important properties of low energy consumption and environmentally friendly cooling at a low price. Refrigeration is very essential to many industries such as food processing sectors, pharmaceutical industries, materials manufacturing industries and many more. In traditional refrigerators, a circulating refrigerant such as Freon are used as coolants.

This new magnetic refrigeration technology used for heating or cooling is a potential low carbon technology and has gained popularity in the market over the conventional vapour compression refrigeration method and sees a great future ahead. Magnetic Refrigeration Principle was discovered by Emil Warburg in 1881. This principle, called the magnetocaloric effect (MCE) uses the property of exotic materials – such as gadolinium and dysprosium – which heat up when a magnetic field is applied to them and cool down when the magnetic field is removed.

The magnetic refrigeration market and its technology primarily aim to reduce the dreaded global warming effect which is a concern to environmentalists since a while now. At the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference, COP 21, in Paris, world leaders discussed to limit global warming to below 2°C by 2100. The talks were aimed to reduce the release of greenhouse gas to avoid serious climate catastrophes around the world. This needs the use of zero carbon technologies.

Magneto-caloric cooling technology is one such innovation of the cooling and freezing industry which can help save the environment by deleting the use of greenhouse gases use as coolants in traditional methods.

A few more advantages of the technology of magnetic refrigeration market and technology cover estimated 20% to 35% in energy usage reduction compared to a standard vapour-compression system; and by completely eliminating compressors, caloric cooling reduces noise, vibration and mechanical maintenance, as well as the risks of refrigerant leaks.

Considerable progress has already been made towards the commercialization of magneto-caloric cooling in magnetic refrigeration market. Materials capable of producing the magneto-caloric effect (heating and cooling) being used include alloy of manganese, iron, phosphorus and silicon (Quice, from BASF in Germany) and an alloy of lanthanum, iron and silicon (Calorivac, from Vacuumschmelze in Germany).

In one of the Consumer Electronics Show in 2015, BASF, Haier and the Astronautics Corp. of America showcased a wine cooler using a magneto-caloric heat pump, while Cooltech demonstrated  a medical fridge employing magnetic refrigeration at the MEDICA show .

Incessant innovation and R&D in the breast pumps market is driving sales volumes for key industry players that aim to help mothers across the globe be at ease in extracting breast milk, irrespective of their personal or professional status. With internet penetration rising in developing regions of the world, APAC and EMEA are set to see significant demand in breast pump market supported with online businesses focusing on niche topics of health, moms, etc or on online retailing in general.

Nuclear and single-parent families are rising every day in major regions, which make single mothers a very huge target audience for the breast pump market. That does not mean top companies give any less importance to married mothers who are active professionally, around their house for daily chores or who simply need their me-time and prefer the usage of breast pumps. With the uses and benefits of breast pumps being recognized by mothers globally, the technology (open and closed systems) and product [manual, electric (single electric, double electric breast pumps) ] segments are attracting continuous research and improvement. With the introduction and acceptance of electric breast pumps, the manual pumps are now seeing increased competition.

Oilfield Services Market Analyzed to 2020 in 2016 Research Update

Posted on

The trials and tribulations of the global oilfield services sector has been much publicised in recent months. The latest edition of World Oilfield Services Market Forecast estimates Capex in the sector fell by 38% in 2015. Adjustments to spending plans are expected to continue well into 2016, compounding 2015’s decline by a further 10% in 2016.

The North American onshore market has undoubtedly taken the brunt of the industry downturn, with OFS expenditure falling 58% in 2015 alongside a 62% decline in onshore rig count and a 47% fall in onshore wells drilled. Recent analysis by Haynes and Boone indicate a total of 46 North American oilfield services companies have filed for bankruptcy since the start of 2015 – a number which DW expects to grow over the next 6-12 months. Offshore North American spend has also been hit hard by the industry downturn – with a 66% decrease in shallow water wells drilled. However,  expenditure in the region has been supported by deepwater drilling, which has seen high day rate rigs remain on contract, resulting in an offshore OFS expenditure decline of only 19%. Post-2016 spend will decline consistently through to 2020 as these rigs come off contract, significantly reducing the average day rate of rigs drilling.

Africa has been the most robust region for OFS spend, 2015 saw the highest number of deepwater wells drilled in the region since 2009, resulting in a 1% increase in total offshore spend. Rig and & crew expenditure is the sole driver of the increase, with all other service lines seeing contraction in spend due to pricing reductions. Offshore rig & crew has been an exception to this trend due to drilling contracts still in place from before the market downturn. However, upon contract expiry, these rigs are likely to command significantly lower day rates due to MODU oversupply and declining offshore drilling activity. Consequently, DW expect offshore Africa expenditure to decline 7% year on year over 2016-2020.

The predominant driver of the current market downturn is OPEC’s oil production position – led by Saudi Arabia’s desire to maintain market share. DW estimate the number of development wells in the Middle East increased incrementally in 2015, however, OFS expenditure in the region fell by 18%. This is due to a raft of cost cutting initiatives and contract re-negotiations undertaken by operators, including Saudi Aramco reducing service pricing by some 20%. The removal of Iranian sanctions is expected to bolster OFS expenditure growth in 2016, both onshore and offshore. Total expenditure growth for 2016 is likely to amount to 3%, with an average growth rate of 5% over 2016-2020.

Coiled tubing (CT) services remains a bright spot within our OFS sector outlook, due to increasing utilisation at well sites across the globe. There is a clear industry trend towards longer and increasingly deviated drilling trajectories – supporting growth in the use of CT. Services with brownfield applications such as surface well testing, production testing, fishing and stimulation are also expected to see relatively strong growth through to 2020. Operators looking to maintain flow rates from existing assets will be a main target for OFS work through the forecast, a reversal of trends seen prior to 2015. Complete report is available at .

A Breakthrough in Aquaculture Additives Market – New Feed Additive with Triple Benefits

Posted on

The production of fish feed additives for the aquaculture industry is a thriving Industry. These natural substances are being used for several purposes including promoting growth of farmed fish, enhancing the immune systems, obtaining the desired flesh and skin pigmentation, and more. Feed additives used need to have a composition which does not effect human health.

Recently Nofima scientists have contributed to this industry a new protein-based process additive with three times benefits that can help reduce the loss of feed in the aquaculture industry while making the production of feed more energy-efficient.

Millions of tonnes of feed is used each year across the globe. Since the feed is transferred through long tubes in the fish cages, it should be able to withstand the mechanical load it experiences. If not, the feed will end up breaking down and clogging the feed-supply system.

A large amount of feed is wasted every year, increasing the annual cost of the aquaculture industries. In order to reduce the loss, the feed must be homogeneous and have good physical properties. This new additive has been made from marine raw materials or plant proteins.  It is believed to have triple benefits. It functions as a binding agent, has high nutritional value and is said to make it easier to produce fish feed with good physical properties.

Different types of food additives are used currently like antibiotics, vitamins, feed acidifiers and more. Amino acids were the largest product segment of the aquaculture additives market in 2014, accounting for over 25% of the revenue share. Proteins are an important type of macromolecules which are necessary for healthy growth of the fish. Studies say that fishes are incapable of synthesizing ten indispensable amino acids, viz., tryptophan, histidine , methionine, arginine, threonine, , isoleucine, lysine, leucine, valine and phenylalanine. Thus, large number manufacturers are adding protein sources to aquafeed now to enhance growth and improve overall health.

Global aquaculture additive industry has been researched comprehensively for a future outlook and current scenario of the market. Find this report at .

Pipeline Research for Tinnitus Therapies and Trials

Posted on

A complete cure for tinnitus is being continuously researched. While complete relief from the disease is yet to come up, research scientists have achieved ways to relieve the sensation of a sound in the ear, usually a hissing, whooshing or ringing noise caused by the disease. This post discusses two such therapies.


One such line of treatment developed is using vibrations created by synthesized music. This helped improve the symptoms of the disease after the first round of trial. The sonic brain reprogramming treatment is based on sound vibrations that pass through a bone behind the ear. This therapy helped eight out of ten of the patients who took twice-weekly sessions of the therapy. It is said for tinnitus that the less you focus on the noise, the less it grows on the patient. But such sessions of sonic brain reprogramming treatment have definitely proved to be of some help. Its inventors, who are planning larger trials, say the technology could be a real breakthrough in the future.


As mentioned, the processed sound is conducted down the bone rather than through the ear. In that way, the high frequency sound by-passes the middle ear and restores high frequency signals to the cochlea of the ear which are then processed by the brain.


The sonic treatment equipment includes three basic things: a music player and amplifier and a headpiece. The headpiece has an aluminum ceramic transducer, a tiny disc that is held against the mastoid bone behind the patient’s ear.


The second line of treatment was conducted by researchers at the VA Portland Medical Center and Oregon Health & Science University. They  found that transcranial magnetic stimulation considerably improved tinnitus symptoms for more than half of study patients.


During  this research, Folmer and colleagues, used a TMS system that produces a magnetic field of cone shape that penetrates the scalp and skull and  interacts with brain tissue. It was observed that higher the stimulation intensity, deeper the magnetic field  penetrated and affected nervous system activity.


All 64 patients who were a part of the trials received one pulse of TMS per second to their skull just above the ear to target the auditory cortex in the brain. Patients received TMS magnetic waves for 10 consecutive workdays, receiving 2,000 pulses of TMS per session. 18 out of 32 patients who were a part of the trial found lessening of tinnitus symptoms for at least six months. A significant number of participants who had tinnitus for more than 20 years were pleased to receive some relief from TMS treatment.

Reducing Female Mosquito Ratio – A Possible Cure for Yellow Fever, Dengue and Chikungunya?

Posted on

Diseases like yellow fever, dengue, and Chikungunya are posing deadly threats to people of many countries across the globe. Continuous research is going on to find the best possible cure. One such recent development and research has  identified a specific gene which is responsible for sex determination in mosquitoes and is responsible to transmit viruses all three diseases namely yellow fever, dengue, and chikungunya.

It is a known fact that only female mosquitoes bite because they require blood for developing eggs. Thus, these researchers believe that if the ratio of males to females is higher, it will help to reduce the transmission of these diseases.

In a study by experts, the scientists have identified a male-determining genetic switch called Nix in Aedes aegypti mosquitoes that causes the difference between males and females. These master switches often exist in in genomic black holes, which is why none had been found in mosquitoes or other insects before.

“Nix provides us with exciting opportunities to harness mosquito sex in the fight against infectious diseases because maleness is the ultimate disease-refractory trait,” said Zhijian Jake Tu, a professor of biochemistry in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and a Fralin Life Science Institute affiliate.

In order to increase the ratio of male mosquitoes, the scientists injected Nix into mosquito embryos and observed that more than two-thirds of the female mosquitoes developed male testes and genitals. When this gene was removed, the process was reversed and the male mosquitoes developed female genitals.

The study provides the basis for developing mosquito control plan by converting females into harmless males or selectively eliminating deadly females.”We’re not there yet, but the ultimate goal is to be able to establish transgenic lines that express Nix in genetic females to convert them to harmless males,” said Zach Adelman, an associate professor of entomology in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and a Fralin Life Science affiliate.

Thus detailed research reports with different angles and opinions on the reducing the transmission of yellow fever, dengue, and Chikungunya viruses will surely help meet the objective of complete eradication of these diseases in future.

Dengue Ongoing Research Developments and Prospects

Posted on

Dengue is a disease causing grave health problems worldwide. Scientists across the globe are focusing not just on understanding how the dengue virus causes the disease but also to find an appropriate vaccine for the disease. Dengue, also known as dengue fever, is a viral disease transmitted to humans by Aedes mosquitoes. As more is being researched about the effects of the disease, the scientists hope to find a better cure or vaccine for it. Recent dengue research also aims to provide better scrutiny to limit the spread of dengue epidemics.

A basic research on the disease is being carried out to understand how the dengue virus is transmitted and how it infects cells and causes disease. Such Dengue pipeline research insights will help Pharma companies and Biotech companies to manufacture a suitable vaccine and also improvise the drugs currently available in the market.

This type of basic research explores many facets of dengue viral biology, like understanding the interactions between the virus and humans and studies of how the dengue virus replicates itself.

There is no vaccine currently available against dengue. Research and clinical trials to produce the dengue vaccine is in progress. It is challenging to make a vaccine against the disease. This is because there are four different serotypes of the dengue virus. Thus, a vaccine effective against all the four serotypes is to be devised by the scientists.

There are approximately six vaccine candidates under examination in clinical trial. The vaccine candidate under trial lately is at the most advanced clinical development stage. It involves the use of live recombinant tetravalent dengue vaccine. This has been evaluated as a 3-dose series on a 0/6/12 month schedule in Phase III clinical studies and has been submitted for registration in several endemic countries. The growing global epidemic of dengue is of mounting concern, and a safe and effective vaccine is urgently needed. WHO expects vaccines to be an integrated part of the Global dengue prevention and control strategy (2012-2020).

Research Insights and Pipeline Information for Respiratory Disorders – A Boon

Posted on

Diseases of the respiratory tract such as emphysema, bronchitis, asthma and cystic fibrosis are affect a wide range of people. These respiratory tract diseases are the second leading cause of death worldwide. More than 35 million Americans suffer from chronic respiratory disease.

Weizmann Institute scientists are researching on embryonic stem cells and their use to relieve the the sufferers  of the respiratory disorders. The stem cells are believed to repair the damaged tissue of the inner lining of lungs.

Let us talk about the insight that led to the very hypothesis and possible use of stem cells. Scientists observed that stem cells found in the lungs of the human body are similar to those in the bone marrow. Also, each organ of the human body has special compartments where the stem cells reside. These are not distribute throughout the tissue. The understanding of bone marrow transplant thus could be replicated to repair the lung tissue.

Prof. Yair Reisner of the Weizmann Institute’s Immunology Department says: “That understanding suggested to us that we might be able to apply our knowledge of techniques for transplanting bone marrow stem cells to repairing lung tissue.”

It was important to understand the principles of bone marrow transplant for this hypothesis. Bone marrow transplant is based on two main principles: the ability of stem cells to travel through the blood to the appropriate compartment and the prior clearing out of the compartment to make space for the transplanted stem cells. Reisner and his group thought the same could be applied to introduce new stem cells into the lungs.

Further research helped them understand that embryonic stem cells from the 20th -22nd week are suitable for this kind of transplant in the lungs. The team then conducted a series of experiments in which they cleared the lung’s stem cell compartments with a method they had devised. The new stem cells were then injected into mouse models of lung damage. The embryonic lung stem cells which were injected managed to find their way through the blood to the lungs and settle into the appropriate compartment. Within six weeks, these stem cells were differentiating into normal lung tissue. The damaged lungs healed in the mice, and their breathing showed a significant improvement.

More such researches are a boon to diseases of the respiratory tract. Researches not just help diagnose the diseases but also study the symptoms in detail. Researches also help the drug industries identify the best possible drugs for the cure of the disease or improvise the existing ones for better cure. More insights in pipeline for the respiratory disorders are available as elaborately analysed reports on . These reports have comprehensively analysed data of competitor pipeline molecules, related research activities, technology and much more. These research insights translated to actual commercial use for the sufferers of the respiratory disorders is much needed.

Alpha Glucosidase Inhibitor – Not Just A Diabetes Fighter?

Posted on

Alpha Glucosidase is a type of enzyme found in intestines of all human beings and is responsible for breaking down carbohydrates to smaller sugar molecules like glucose, in order for the carbohydrates to be absorbed easily by the body.

Alpha Glucosidase inhibitors work by competitive and reversible inhibition of these intestinal enzymes. These enzymes also break down carbohydrates but at a much slower rate to form the smaller glucose molecules. This slower rate of digestion ensures a delay in the formation and hence absorption of glucose in blood.

Alpha Glucosidase inhibitor is found in drugs like Acarbose- Precose, Miglitol – Glyset and Voglibose. The basic function of all the drugs remains the same, which is slowing down carbohydrate catabolism. Minute differences are found between acarbose and migitol. Migitol resembles monosaccharide type of carbohydrate while the mechanism of action of acarbose is like that of an oligosaccharide.

Another difference observed between the two varieties of drugs is with respect to its ability to be absorbed by the body. Migitol is absorbed comparatively well by the body than acarbose. Also, migitol is observed to have a dual action mechanism. It is capable of inhibiting another enzyme called pancreatic alpha-amylase along with alpha-glucosidase.

According to Dr. Richard Miller, M.D., Ph.D., professor of pathology at the U-M Medical School and associate director of the U-M Geriatrics Center “The new results on acarbose support the idea that drugs may someday be developed to prevent many diseases while also slowing the aging process itself”.

Dr. Richard Miller further says at, that because acarbose is known to be safe for long-term human use, it may be possible for clinical researchers to evaluate its effects on aging and age-related diseases, both in people who take the drug to treat their diabetes, and in healthy volunteers.

Importance of Chemicals and Chemical Industry Overview

Posted on

Almost everything we use today needs chemical products, used in one way or the other. Chemical products are utilised in almost every industrial process involved with manufacturing various types of consumer goods. While many of these chemical industry products are bought directly by the consumer, 70% of chemicals manufactured are used to make other valuable products by other industries. These chemical industries use a wide range of raw materials, from air and minerals to oil. The most important chemical companies today are from the United States and European Union. Their chemical production is calculated to be a $3 trillion global enterprise. The chemical industry sales can be divided in a few broad categories like basic chemicals with around 40% of output, life sciences 30%, specialty chemicals 20% and customer products 10%.


Basic chemicals include petrochemicals, polymers, reaction intermediates, inorganic chemicals and fertilizers. The polymers and plastics are used for construction pipes, tools, materials like acrylics, appliances, electronic devices, toys, games, transportation, packing, clothing and textiles like nylon and polyester, among many other products. Polymers come from petrochemical raw materials like natural gas, liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and crude oil or petroleum. Petrochemicals are also used for producing other organic chemicals and well as specialty chemicals.


Other basic industrial chemicals include synthetic rubber, pigments, resins, explosives and rubber products. Inorganic chemicals belong to the oldest chemical categories, and include daily products like chlorine, salt, soda ash, acids like phosphoric, nitric, and sulfuric acids, caustic soda and hydrogen peroxide, which are vital for several industries. Fertilizers belong to the minor category of basic chemical industry and include ammonia, phosphates and potash.

Market Research Myths and Facts for Businesses

Posted on

Talking about market research myths, one segment of business owners think of market research as simply perceptions of customers or target audience towards a particular brand, product or service. Businesses look at market research differently at different stages of their business cycle. This post on market research myths is an attempt to list common business misconceptions and share the other side of market research that may help debunk some of these myths.

Necessity and Timing

Today, when go-to-market cycles are getting shorter, a certain set of start-ups look at market research as an activity that is not worth their time in initial stages. Or they wait for collecting some ‘business data’ (customer preferences, products/services in demand, etc) before opting for market research. However, market research can help these businesses go-to-market quickly AND ‘successfully’ with data and information analysis that may answer some of their questions readily.

There have also been instances of growing companies as well as companies doing well not prioritizing market research enough and at regular time intervals. It is important for growing companies to keep a tab on their customer satisfaction and ‘options’ that their prospects may be looking at. Without market research, to sustain growth in today’s fast-moving industry pace is a challenge. Companies doing well or leading players in their segments need on-going market research to maintain their current position and ensure that their customers do not shift base for ‘any reasons’. This is possible with understanding the competitive landscape and doing necessary competition analysis, both of which are easily presented and interpreted by market research.

Cost and Resources (internal v/s external)

A common market research myth is that it is expensive. This needs to be looked at from two viewpoints. A start-up may think of a subscription to a market research reports library as expensive because it has other equally important aspects of business to invest into. On the other hand, a growing company or a industry leader may look at the cost of market research as doing an investment in something that they ‘already know’.  Both of these viewpoints need to be aggressively countered.

For a start-up, investing in market research is important to support the other important business aspects and decision making processes. If a time bound subscription to market research is out of budget range, adhoc purchase of syndicated market research reports is an option that helps them with limited but relevant data and analysis that supports their business decision making purposes. For companies that are in fast-growing stages and organizations that are market leaders, it is important to understand that market research always has a ‘new perspective’ to offer irrespective of their business standing. ‘What we already know’ mindset restricts these businesses from exploring opportunities that may be hidden somewhere in these market research information. These include innovation in products, customer preferences across geographies, competition R&D and so many other business factors that are critical and cannot be ignored even by market leaders.

With regards to resources, one prevalent market research myth is that businesses always need to engage external resources (consultants, agencies, etc) to get required data. This is not always and necessarily true. Internal resources, if effectively utilized, can be used for getting feedback and suggestions from current customer base. This becomes all the more easier, if the base of these customers or a sample as they are called in market research is small in size. Getting testimonials that offer insights or ‘views on market trends’ from an influencer prospect via internal resources are easy processes, primarily because of the ‘known’ factor amongst both parties.

Objectives and Expectations

Businesses have different objectives of doing market research. Expectations, however, remain on common one line of increasing the top or bottom line. Gradually, this may be true but it is important to map immediate expectations and objectives of doing market research. Is the market research done with one single point in mind or is it to address multiple pain points of a business? If the objective of doing market research is to identify customer satisfaction level, the expectation should not be to achieve 100% customer satisfaction immediately. The expectations should be set to find reasons and action points that will eventually help achieve 100% customer satisfaction.

The myth of data accuracy and expectations of removing uncertainties also need to be addressed. Market research does not always guarantee accuracy of data and information because generally the ‘sample’ identified for doing market research is a part of the whole target audience. This data and information is aimed at ‘helping’ take business decisions based on facts and figures instead of ‘gut’ or non-statistical understanding. The probability with market research becomes higher as compared to without taking help of market research. Similarly, market research does not remove uncertainties from industry environment or targeted business cycle. It aims to ‘help’ businesses fight these uncertainties with comparative ease that comes in the form of data and analysis.

Market Research – Syndicated Reports and Basics

Posted on

Doing right things at the right time is a well known and beneficial fact. Applied to business, this translates as key to a profitable business is to make the right decisions at an appropriate time. Market Research plays an important role in helping take these decisions. It is an important factor to maintain competitiveness in current markets that move constantly, as businesses aim to have a clear understanding of all stakes involved from a strategy perspective. With the increased complexity of the business environment, it is no longer sufficient to make key decisions using a ‘gut-feeling’ approach alone. Decisions need to be supported with reliable data as well as factual information and market research helps support this process. Decisions taken based on genuine market research data and information help in reducing the level of financial risk attached with investment decisions.

Syndicated Market Research Reports
A syndicated report predominantly covers two types of market research data – Primary and Secondary.

Primary Research involves gathering data in form of new research through the root and original source of data / information. This data can be gathered in quantitative and/or qualitative format.

  • Quantitative research is based on numbers using which, decisions can be made with confidence. This can include methods like ‘surveys’ and ‘field research’ that provide actual/live feedback and numbers in terms of customer reactions, competitive data, geographical and SWOT analysis and more.
  • Qualitative research helps answer the ‘why’ questions in addition to ‘what’ and ‘how much’ questions answered by quantitative research. By getting answers to ‘why’ questions along with facts and figures of quantitative research, qualitative analysis helps in seeking and understanding multiple reactions to optimize and finalize one of the many options. ‘Focus groups’ that provide practical insights and ‘depth interviews’ are common methods of qualitative research.

Secondary Research is also known as ‘desk research’. This research relies on data that has been collected by another organisation/institute/business entity to provide market information. It is a fact and data based overview of the market. Example sources of secondary research include data and information from multiple government departments, geographic and demographic information available through specialist agencies, official websites of companies being studied, their financial and annual reports, organizations like chamber of commerce and business associations (formal / informal) that offer information on members, etc.

It is important that a syndicated or any market research is well controlled to ensure that the data collected is valid and reliable. The end result should not just help decision makers foresee the level of demand / scope of their products and services but also help set revenue generation expectations to ensure profitable business.
