Home Users Are Catalyst for Patient Monitoring Device Market
Remote patient monitoring is drawing keen interest in the market for patient monitoring devices (PMDs). According to projections by BCC Research, the PMD market will grow from nearly $16.9 billion in 2015 to almost $23.8 billion in 2020, reflecting a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.1%. Last year, hospitals were the largest segment of the PMD end-user market, representing 51% of the total end-user market. But in terms of growth, home users are the fastest-growing end-user segment. The market for glucose monitoring and other devices that enable patient self-monitoring at home is expected to grow during BCC Research’s forecast period.
In Space, No One Can Hear You Bio-Print Human Organs
Two high-tech companies have teamed up to develop a 3-D bio-printer capable of manufacturing human organs and tissues in orbit. The joint effort could result in the ability to manufacture transplantable organs in space for patients on earth, and help enable long-duration human exploration of deep space.
The Brave New Applications of PCR Technology
Technological advances are yielding different types of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) techniques. BCC Research reveals in a new analysis that the use of PCR technology continues to expand into nonconventional applications, producing solid growth in the global market. PCR allows DNA sequencing, as well as the production of millions of copies of a specific DNA sequence, within minutes. As a result, PCR technology has helped make molecular diagnosis easier and faster. It is used frequently to diagnose disease, identify bacteria and viruses, and aid forensic investigations. And, so much more.
Biosimilar Therapies for Rheumatoid Arthritis Win Favor of FDA Panel
The race is on to get biosimilar versions of the rheumatoid arthritis (RA) treatments Humira, the world’s top-selling drug, and Enbrel, also in the top five, to market. Companies are simultaneously defending their own biologic treatments and developing biosimilars. Case in point: Last month, Amgen floated on a recommendation from an FDA panel to approve its alternative to AbbVie’s Humira. But the following day, Novartis’ Sandoz division won similar support for FDA approval of a biosimilar to Amgen’s Enbrel. The landscape is changing fast, as companies both vie to protect their blockbusters and try to chip away at their competitor’s market share.
Marketing Your Business During Major World Events - Part Two
Major world events, such as national or international sporting competitions are a great time to connect with your customers and introduce or even reintroduce yourself. You can build upon a great relationship by demonstrating to your customers that your company has passion, or a sense of humor, or even just that you support the things they care about.
Marketing Your Business During Major World Events - Part One
Some things are just better when enjoyed with other people. We are social beings, and there is both a thrill and a primal satisfaction in sharing an experience. Two examples are watching an anticipated film in a theater full of eager moviegoers, or celebrating your hometown team’s victory in a packed stadium. In both cases, the energy and excitement of others fuels and heightens the emotional impact to the individual.

Your Watch (or Ring)--Don’t Leave Home Without It
In his 1888 novel “Looking Backward 2000-1887,” American writer Edward Bellamy envisioned a utopian world in which cash has been replaced by credit/debit cards. Bellamy was the first to write about such cards, forty years before anyone else.
