...PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRY RESEARCH PAPER Submitted By RAKESHKUMAR PATEL NILAMBEN PATEL MONROE COLLEGE NOVEMBER 19, 2012 MG 620 RESEARCHES FOR STATISTICS Presented to DR. ANNE WALSH ABSTRACT The United States is the world’s largest market for pharmaceuticals and the world leader in biopharmaceutical research. U.S. firms conduct 80 percent of the world’s research and development in biotechnology and hold the intellectual property rights to most new medicines. In 2010, the pharmaceutical sector employed approximately 272,000 people (source: Bureau of Labor Statistics), and according to the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (Parma), those manufacturers spent $67.4 billion on research and development in 2010. The markets for biologics, over-the-counter (OTC) medicines, and generics show the most potential for growth and have become increasingly competitive. Biologics, valued at $67 billion in 2010 (source: IMS Health), account for a quarter of all new drugs in clinical trials or awaiting Food and Drug Administration approval. OTC market growth will be driven by a growing aging population and consumer trend to self-medication and the conversion of drugs from prescription to non-prescription or OTC status. Generic drug sales in the United States were valued at $78 billion in 2010 (source: IMS Health). The U.S. market is the world’s largest free-pricing market for pharmaceuticals and has a favorable......

Introduction of Product and Service in the World: Cooking oil consists of edible vegetable oils derived from different plants, amongst which the famous are olives, peanuts, and sunflower. Cooking oil is used to prepare food, fry food and also used for salad dressing. It has been around for thousands and thousands of years. The Chinese and Japanese have been using cooking oil since 2000 BC. Many other civilizations have used cooking oil before and after that. Therefore, to track the exact date of the invention is impossible. The Chinese were fond of Soy Cooking Oil and have been using it for a long time. Vegetable oil, a type of cooking oil, began to be processed by old civilizations, utilizing whatever food they had. Early civilizations learned to use the sun, to heat, oily plant until the plant exuded oil that could be collected. In Mexico and North America, peanuts and sunflower seeds were roasted and beaten into a paste and then boiled in water. The oil that rose to the surface was then skimmed off. Africans also grated and beat palm kernels and coconut meat and then boiled the resulting pulp, taking the hot oil off the water. Due to technological advancements, we now have new types of vegetable oil. Corn oil was extracted first in the 1960s. Cotton oil, grapeseed oil, watermelon seed oil, and many others are now considered as beneficial. Earlier...

Paper on Industry

...The global confectionery market was valued at approximately $147bn in 2008, an increase of 3.2% over 2007. Business Insights forecasts that the global confectionery market will grow at a CAGR of 3.1% during 2008–13, to reach a total value of approximately $171bn in 2013. A shift in consumer preference towards premium chocolate and increasing consumption of healthy confectionery in matured markets, primarily the US and Europe, will drive industry value through 2013. Chocolate represents the largest confectionery category in value terms, accounting for almost half of the global market in 2008. The dominance of the chocolate category in the confectionery industry has been driven by the growth in demand for dark chocolate due to its inherent health benefits. Business Insights anticipates that cereal bars will outperform all other categories of confectionery, growing at a CAGR 5.8% during 2008–13, led by the increasing demand for nutritional and fortified foods. An aging population will drive the development of functional confectionery, including satiety enhancing gums. 2005-2007: Through this period, Nestlé‟s predominantly mass-market confectionery portfolio under-performs the market, which is largely driven by premiumisation, a trend which is largely beneficial to premium chocolate manufacturers, such as Lind & Sprüngli and Ferrero. Over 2005-2009, the largest gains in global confectionery share were made by Kraft Foods and Mars, by 10.7 percentage points......

Industry Research Paper

... This proposal describes how Porter’s five forces are applied to Nokia. As it is said Symbian can be considered as an important external factor, which influences Nokia’s profits. The paper emphasises on the powers of suppliers in the five forces analysis and thus conclusions for the dependency of Nokia can be made. It also illustrates other forces in Porter’s model like the competitors force. The topic of the bargain power of consumers is also described well: Consumers choice is affecting Nokia’s profits since Nokia is missing the target market preferences as consumers lean towards high end phones and not the cheap supply Nokia has. However we think that the threat of new entries should be dealt in more detail. The topic of the research is clear and specific though it focuses a little too much on Symbian as the main factor. The “decreasing innovation and market share of Symbian” can be described in the sub questions. And in my opinion, the group has too many sub questions. It is better to change some and make it more concentrated. I think some sub questions are not necessary because their answers may overlap. However we like the fact that the sub questions are logically built and are relevant to the research question. This proposal lists a clear plan of the approach for developing the final paper. The method is progressive. The research method chosen gathers secondary research information and describes the market based on previous references and market research. However I......

Bargaining powers of Buyers 5. Bargaining power of Suppliers Textile Industry Analysis Industry Overview Pakistan is the world's 4th largest producer and 3rd largest consumer of cotton. Because of its plentiful, indigenous cotton supply, the textile industry is central to the Pakistani economy and is both a source of employment and a source of exports. Pakistan's industrialization began in the 1950s with the textile industry at its center. The Textile and Clothing Industry has been the main driver of the economy for the last 50 years in terms of foreign currency earnings and jobs creation. The Textile and Clothing Industry will continue to be an important engine for future growth of the economy; there is no alternative industry or service sector that has the potential to benefit the economy with foreign currency earnings and new job creation, especially if synergy is developed amongst different subsectors and efforts are made to aggressively grow the Ready Made Clothing Sector.

Pulp Industry Essay

...1 Industry Analysis for Arauco Pulp itself, as a raw commodity, can be broken down into one of four main variations based on whether or not it is bleached as well as softwood versus hardwood pulp. From here pulp can be used to make a wide variety of paper products. Associated with the production of pulp are Arauco’s other two product lines, forestry and wood products. Forestry products include pulpwood and saw logs while wood products include things like fitches, lumber, and panels. The pulp industry is a highly fragmented one with the largest players all being fully integrated companies that produced pulp and paper, start to finish. Of the approximately 183 million tons of pulp manufactured in 2003, “142 million tons of pulp were used in the production of paper by vertically integrated pulp and paper companies.” (10) Apart from these fully integrated conglomerates there are some other companies that focus on a particular category of the process of production. Additionally there are a handful of local firms that produce paper based on specific needs of their markets. The top five largest producers of market pulp hold 27% of the market with each producer specialized in a specific category of pulp that they dominate. Historically, pulp production has been dominated by the U.S., Canada, Sweden, and Finland (Norscan). Despite this historical dominance, southern hemisphere pulp producers have been on the rise very much recently because of the market growth in hardwood pulp......

The study provides a brief overview of the problems which are creating hindrance for furniture exporters. Also, it provides some suggestions and recommendations to the government and furniture exporters through which they can improve their performance of exports. The study concludes the factors both exogenous and endogenous, which prove to be creating obstacles in the export of furniture. Introduction:- Pakistan has been unable to grasp a good position in the international wooden furniture market despite the fact that the country has a history of dexterity and novelty in the furniture making. The wooden furniture industry represents 95% of the total market in the country. Pakistan is heavily dependent on Sheesham (rosewood) for furniture manufacturing. The primary areas of furniture makers in Pakistan are Chiniot, Gujrat, Peshawar, Lahore and Karachi and the furniture exported by Pakistan is usually made by rosewood and metals, however, some products are also made from walnut wood. Pakistan is exporter to about 80 countries, which mainly include USA, Malaysia, Singapore, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. USA mostly imports bedroom furniture from Pakistan, whereas UK and Gulf countries along with bedroom furniture also trade in office and kitchen furniture. The wood and furniture industry in Pakistan can be divided into two main types i.e. cottage and small scale industry. Both...
