U.S. Government COTS IT Procurement Vehicles Market

The U.S. Government has a number of procurement vehicles for the commercial off the shelf (COTS) information technology that they buy on a routine basis. This market is experiencing a shift regarding the acquisition of products and services. Within the past few years, agency-specific contracts have garnered more attention from federal agencies due to key factors such as adaptability and lower pricing. Alleviating risks related to procurements is the overall key reason for federal agencies gravitating towards agency-specific contracts. With the General Services Administration (GSA) offering strategic partnering for those agencies, not only can procurement risks be mitigated, but monitoring of contracting activity increases significantly.

Packaged Food in Slovenia

Healthy value growth continues in packaged food in Slovenia during 2011
Packaged food in Slovenia is expected to have performed well during 2011, with positive growth projected across the majority of packaged food categories. However, when comparing growth rates from 2011 with growth from previous years of the review period, it is also clear that growth is slowing down in the majority of packaged food categories. This is mainly result of the residual effects of the global financial crisis, which is leading to Slovenian consumers thinking twice before parting with any amount of money, no matter how small. The ongoing high level of price sensitivity in Slovenia is leading many consumers to turn towards lower-priced packaged food, especially private label.

Health and wellness and greater convenience remain the major trends
Two major trends had a significant impact on packaged food in Slovenia during 2010 and the first half of 2011. The first of these is the health and wellness trend, which remained the most influential trend in packaged food in Slovenia throughout the second half of the review period. As health awareness continues to rise among Slovenian consumers, demand for natural and healthier products is increasing. As a result of this, packaged food made using natural ingredients which offer additional benefits such as fortification with vitamins and calcium performed very well during 2010 and 2011, as did packaged food which contains less fat and fewer calories. Furthermore, packaged food which targets consumers with specific health needs also prospered during 2010 and 2011. The second important trend influencing packaged food in Slovenia during the second half of the review period was the rising demand for greater convenience. This arose as a result of Slovenians having less spare time than ever, leading them to demand packaged food which can be prepared and consumed quickly and easily.

The predominance of domestic producers is set to continue
Slovenian consumers generally prefer domestic packaged food brands and products and this has resulted in domestic producers dominating packaged food for some time. Artisanal bakeries and Ljubljanske Mlekarne dd are the leading players in overall Slovenia packaged food industry. These are all domestic producers and a similar picture also becomes apparent when looking at the company rankings within specific categories. In the majority of packaged food categories, the leading producers are all domestic companies. Nevertheless, the influence of multinational companies remains highly evident and cannot be ignored.

The popularity of one-stop-shopping continues to build
Slovenian consumers generally enjoy purchasing many grocery items at one place, which is the main reason for grocery retailers holding the vast majority of distribution share within packaged food in the country throughout the review period. Supermarkets/hypermarkets remains the most popular distribution channel for packaged food in Slovenia, although the popularity of discounters increased during the second half of the review period as the global economic crisis took its toll on Slovenia’s economy. This was mainly due to the lower prices attached to the products offered within discounters outlets, which attract a significant proportion of Slovenia’s generally price-sensitive consumers. Apart from large format grocery retailers, other important distribution channels for packaged food in Slovenia are small grocery retailers, specifically convenience stores, which was the most important small grocery retailers channel for the distribution of packaged food in Slovenia during 2011. However, these small grocery retailers channels are steadily losing distribution value share in the majority of packaged food categories due to still rising popularity of one-stop shopping and the rising demand for the lower prices charged for goods through chained large format grocery retailers.

The future of packaged food in Slovenia remains positive
Packaged food in Slovenia is expected to perform well during 2011, with positive value sales growth also expected to continue throughout the forecast period. However, when comparing the projected performance of packaged food in Slovenia for the forecast period with the growth registered during the review period, it is clear that the growth rates are set to be lower during the forecast period than they were during the review period. This is expected to be mainly due to the lingering effects of the financial and economic instability in Europe, specifically in smaller countries of the Eurozone, and the ongoing price-sensitivity of Slovenian consumers. As soon as the global and regional economic situation improves, however, value sales growth rates in packaged food in Slovenia can be expected to begin rising again.

Orphan Drug Trends 2011

Orphan Drug Trends 2011 - With the industry’s ongoing transition toward more niche high-value therapies, a growing number of companies are expanding into the orphan drugs arena, fuelled by the incentives offered by national regulatory authorities, the high price point orphan drugs can achieve, and the limited competition they face.

Features and benefits

Insight into pricing and reimbursement challenges faced by orphan drug manufacturers
Review of Orphan Drug Market R&D, designation, and approval trends in the US market
Orphan drug deal trend and case study analysis

• With the growing number of orphan drugs entering the market, products are facing tougher scrutiny from payers, with pricing and reimbursement remaining the most significant hurdle to market access, leading to the use of risk-sharing agreements by a number of manufacturers.
• Pharma’s shift toward niche markets is occurring either by gradually undertaking several bolt-on deals with specialist players, as exemplified by GlaxoSmithKline and Pfizer, or opting for a large scale merger or acquisition to rapidly access the target company’s orphan drug portfolio, as illustrated by Sanofi’s purchase of Genzyme.
• The majority of orphan drug candidates targeted by pharma are in Phase III clinical trials, and are accessed primarily through licensing deals. Nevertheless, pharma is also keen to access orphan drugs during pre-clinical development. Often these deals involve smaller up-front fees, with greater emphasis on commercial milestone and royalty payments.

Packaged Food in Bosnia-Herzegovina

Published: November 2011
Price: $ 6500

Growth, inflation, recession, recovery
During the first half of the review period the Bosnia-Herzegovina Packaged Food Market grew strongly. Main drivers of the market in 2006 and 2007 were expansion of consumers’ disposable income and penetration of large chained retailers, which significantly improved the range of products offered to consumers in Bosnia-Herzegovina. 2008 is the year remembered by volatility of food prices across the world. This was the first in a series of shocks which followed until 2011. During 2009 the global financial crisis spread to Bosnia-Herzegovina and the domestic economy grinded to a halt and began to decline. Recession continued throughout 2010. This negativity in the environment was reflected in a significant decline of Bosnian and Herzegovinian consumers’ disposable income. Like most fast-moving consumer goods, sales of packaged food suffered. However, some categories performed better than others, for example private label brands and basic foodstuffs. In 2011 we begin to see first signs of market recovery in Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Inflation and high unemployment delay serious recovery
The packaged food market as well as the economy in Bosnia-Herzegovina began to recover from the recession during 2011. Still, it is not all blue skies yet. Prices of basic foodstuffs started to grow at the end of 2010 and continued going up in 2011. Categories most affected by price volatility are chocolate confectionery, bakery products and oils and fats, incidentally the same categories which drove price inflation during 2008. Nevertheless, 2011 performance of packaged foods in Bosnia-Herzegovina is expected to be an improvement relative to 2010 and 2009. Manufacturers and retailers have adapted their portfolios, focusing on economy products and private label. Purchasing power of consumers is still negatively affected by a high unemployment rate, but there is work to be found in grey areas of the economy.

Dominance of large regional players
Packaged Food in Bosnia-Herzegovina - Several large regional manufacturing groups have established their dominance over the packaged food market in Bosnia-Herzegovina. Packaged food manufacturing companies run by the Croatian concern Agrokor are heading the market, relying on strong support from its sister company Konzum, which grew into an absolute leader in Bosnian and Herzegovinian grocery retailing during the review period. Danube Foods and Podravka have also managed to leverage their wide production portfolios and financial superiority to claim the remaining spots on top of the packaged foods market in Bosnia-Herzegovina. Bosnian and Herzegovinian consumers are obviously assigning great value to regional brands, perceiving them to offer best value for money. Domestic manufacturers are often perceived to offer inferior quality, which is why they need to price their products below those of regional and international competition.

Polarisation of retailing
Packaged food retailing in Bosnia-Herzegovina continues to be dominated by small grocery retailers, but these outlets are losing ground to large retailers, as supermarkets/ hypermarkets has continued to gain value share over the review period at the expense of independent small grocers. These outlets are able to offer best deals to consumers that are increasingly interested in price. Hence, strong performance of private label. Retailers which have achieved largest penetration of private label in their outlets are: Konzum, Mercator, Tus and DM. Large retail outlets are also able to offer consumers the widest range of brands and products to choose from. Independent small retailers are forced to specialise, increasingly serving as convenience specialists, price specialists or food specialists. Since leading manufacturers shifted their focus towards key accounts (large chained retailers), smaller manufacturers with limited advertising resources are beginning to focus on smaller independents where they can achieve better visibility and better sales. Convenience stores, in keeping with the general trend towards convenience, has increased its share over the review period.
