Bone densitometry is a non-invasive diagnostic technique which involves use of bone densitometers for quantitative measurement of bone mass or density. Over a past few decades, decrease in bone mass or density has been associated with the occurrence of fractures in future and thus bone density measurement has been considered as an indicator to predict fracture risk.Moreover, people with medications for corticosteroid treatment, cancer, eating disorders, amenorrhea and genetic disorders are also preferred for evaluation of bone mineral density.

Major improvements in diagnostic technology have been witnessed since last decade due to change in perception for osteoporotic disease, growing elderly population and high expenditure to society and healthcare agencies along with the adverse effects on patients across the globe. The advances in the technology are making it possible for early detection of disease before fracture occurs. With socio-economic development in many developing countries and rapid ageing of the population, osteoporosis has become one of the most prevalent and costly health problems in these regions. Growing ageing population combined with increased vitamin D deficient patients and rise in risk for osteoporosis in post-menopausal women contribute to the growth of this market particularly in emerging economies of Middle East, India, China and Japan. Moreover, technological advances in bone densitometerscoupled with increase in access and recognition of these technologies in emerging market, such as China, Brazil, Japan and India will serve as an opportunity for investors to invest in.


The global market for bone densitometers has been studied from the perspective of currently widely accepted technologies and the major end users. Technologies are further segmented, based on axial and peripheral bone density measurement. Axial bone densitometers include dual energy X-ray absorptiometry and quantitative computed tomography. Peripheral bone densitometers include single energy X-ray absorptiometry, peripheral dual energy X-ray absorptiometry, radiographic absorptiometry, quantitative ultrasound and peripheral computed tomography. The endusers for bone densitometers include clinics and hospitals.Hospitals remain the major hub in most of the countries across the globe for bone densitometry diagnostics and devices.

It is expected that the global market for axial bone densitometers will grow at a CAGR of over 3% from 2013 to 2019.In 2012, axial DEXA accounted for the largest share by revenue at USD 297.8 million of the total bone densitometers market. However, due to thedecrease in the reimbursement, the overall market revenue is expected to decline during the forecast period in the U.S and Europe.The market for axial QCTaccounted for the second largest share at USD 182.9million, in 2012. Moreover, it is expected that the global market for peripheral QCT bone densitometers will grow at a CAGR of over 4% from 2013 to 2019, owing to its high sensitivity, portability of devices, lesser scanning time, with better precision and accuracy, and also less radiation exposure.

Geographically, North America dominatedthe global market for bone densitometersin terms of revenue generation and is expected to maintain its position throughout the forecast period. Theadoption of DEXA systems, growing elderly population and consequent rise in incidences of osteoporosis in the U.S., is expected to contribute to the leadership of the North American market.

China detains five in the stale meat probe

The Chinese police have detained five people in the ongoing investigations about supply of outdated meat to fast food chains across China.

The detention comes after Shanghai Husi Food was put under scanner by the regulators for selling expired meat to fast food giants like KFC and McDonald’s.

These allegations against the supplier were seconded by new programs too. However, police have provided no further comment on this issue.

Manager of Husi’s quality department, Zhang Hui, stated that this kind of meat was produced with the “tacit” approval of some of the senior managers.

Both the fast food chains in question have stopped using this meat ever since the issue was brought to light.
This scandal has become a new setback for Yum brands, which was already trying to rebuild its image in China. Yum suffered a massive blow in 2012 when two of its meat suppliers were providing meat heavily laced with antibiotics.


Yum was just making a recovery in the first quarter of this year with a 9% rise in sale at its China outlets. The KFC sales also rose by 11% in the same quarter.

Microsoft makes good Nokia’s losses

Microsoft has a plan to help its newest acquisition, Nokia reach break even in two years time. Microsoft has reported a loss of 7% in the second quarter of 2014 due to the struggling state of the Finnish mobile maker.

Microsoft has already announced layoffs and reorganization of its structure as a part of the plan to get Nokia on track by 2016. It also intends to take in analysts to cut the USD 1 billion losses.
The move not only cheered those on the Wall Street, but also sounds like the end of frustration and pain for Microsoft with this heavy-lifting.

 Nokia’s purchase by Microsoft was purely for the purpose of taking on giants such as Apple Inc and Samsung. However, the software firm reported an unfortunate operating loss of USD 692 million.

The kind of success Microsoft projected with Nokia Lumia smartphones wasn’t as per expectations, as it only captured 4% of global market. In the second quarter Lumia sold 5.8 million units are compared to 35.2 million iPhones sold in the same period.


To make the plan work Microsoft will drastically cut down on Nokia’s operation by shutting down few facilities and about 25,000 employees. Microsoft intends to concentrate on cloud-computing as under the guidance of Satya Nadella.

Apple makes a 7.7% profit with iPhone Sales

Apple reported a rise of 7.7% in the second quarter of 2014 with a steady and growing demand for iPhones. However, there has been a decline in the sale of iPad tablet.

The company recorded a profit of 7.7% on the revenue of USD 37.4 billion, which is an 11.6% year-on-year rise.

Tim Cook, CEO of Apple attributed the profits to strong demand of iPhones, Mac, and the steady growth from Apple’s ecosystem. Following this upward climb the consumer electronics company has declared a cash dividend of 47 cents per share of common stock. This will be paid by August 11.

The iPad sales have witnessed a decline of 9.2% year-on-year at USD 12.27 million. This figure is even lower than what the analysts had expected it to be. This poor show negatively impacted the revenues which was lower than the forecasted one at USD 30 billion.


Apple’s deal with China Mobile is expected to give a fillip to the company iPhone sales, and putting it in a fair position to fight the stiff competition from the Android enabled phones.


The disclosure of a patent by Apple has stirred talks about the company’s plan to design technology that is more wearable, such as a smartwatch. However, Cook has confirmed no such talk. All that he has said so far is that he prefers the wrist to be the perfect spot for a wearable gadget, and that innovative products were in oven.

Cardiac prosthetics are chronic alternatives that replace a damaged or diseased part in the body. Cardiac prosthetic devices are used in the treatment of blockages in heart valves. Implantation of these devices is being increasingly accepted as one of the common procedures due to a rise in the number of patients suffering from valvular diseases. Prosthetic valve thrombosis (PVT), prosthetic valve endocarditis (PVE), mechanical hemolytic anemia and thromboembolism are some of the complications that arise from failure of the primary valves. 

The growth of cardiac prosthetic devices market is primarily driven by increasing geriatric population, rise in the number of cardiac diseases (coronary artery, cardiovascular, peripheral vascular, rheumatic heart, cerebrovascular and valvular heart diseases). In addition, technological advances are also aiding the growth of this industry.

The cardiac prosthetic devices market can be segmented as heart valves and pacemaker. Heart valves are further categorized into mechanical heart valves, tissue heart valves and transcatheter heart valves. The market for cardiac prosthetic devices promises high growth mainly due to increasing incidence of cardiovascular disorders, rising preference for minimally-invasive procedures and consistent growth in the geriatric population. 

Additionally, a rise in obesity followed by continuous product modification and technological upgradation resulting in development of effective devices would propel the growth and uptake of cardiac prosthetic devices. However, high cost of devices, stringent approval process of these devices (Class III devices) and certain clauses of the Affordable Healthcare Act (AHA) that contribute in overall increase of the cost of medical devices are some of the factors that might hamper the growth of the cardiac prosthetic devices market.

At the regional level, North America was the largest market in 2012 for cardiac prosthetic devices market followed by the European region. Cardiovascular diseases such as valvular and rheumatic diseases have increased significantly in the developed nations.

Ackman’s presentation against Herbalife over-promised and under-delivered

Bill Ackman’s latest hit at Herbalife hasn’t really moved things anywhere. In fact it missed to make a mark on Wall Street, with stocks soaring by 25% for the company.

Ackman’s told an audience of 500 at the New York auditorium and thousands tuned in via webcast that Herbalife is nothing but a criminal setup that lures in minorities, considers non-existent customers while promising business and profits, and breaks labor laws. He further went on to state that Herbalife runs on a pyramid scheme that makes the members earn from recruiting new members instead of selling the products.
The presentation made on Tuesday also shed light on Herbalife’s method of recruiting freshers, often Latinos, to work for free as trainees before giving them the actual distributorship.

Ackman’s research worth USD 50 million has video, audio, and other data that has been collected from 240 Herbalife clubs.

Herbalife has only rejected these claims. John DeSimone, the nutrition company’s CFO stated that all these claims are completely fabricated, and they have commissioned a study to vindicate the company standing.
Ackman said the probing officials from FBI, Federal Trade Commission, and Securities and Exchange Commission are taking far too long than expected against Herbalife.


However, Vijay Marolia, a fund manager at Regal Point Capital Management said that the much-hyped presentation by Bill Ackman was over-promised to begin with, and thoroughly under-delivered to end with. Some more hedge fund managers seconded this sentiment and retained the stock, despite Ackman’s appeal to every investor to sell it.
