  • 7. Methodological Note Methodology: Online survey with e-mail invitation from Frost & Sullivan address list Field time: December 2011 No. of Interviews: N=586 in total see details on next two charts Respondent: Clients and prospects of Frost & Sullivan in Europe Reporting notes: Due to rounding errors, percentages in charts, tables, etc. may not sum to 100 Comment by Michael L. Ranke, VP Customer Research Europe: First of all I would like to thank you very much for your time in participating in the survey which was launched at not a particularly good time, December. The number of N=586 interviews achieved is therefore highly successful, allowing for a robust analysis on an over all level. The majority of results on the following slides are based on 1,439 responses, as most of you answered that you were tracking 2.5 industries on average. This caused the actual questionnaire to take longer than we anticipated. As a result, the n=1,439 is an excellent sample size. Thank you so such, I trust you will gain great value in the findings. 7

  • 11. Key Perspectives on Growth in the Healthcare Industryin 2012 Health economics dictate a shift in spending – 1 away from treating and towards predicting, diagnosing and monitoring. Health care that is customised to monitor, 2 diagnose, educate, and intervene regardless of location or time-will be common. In life testing’ will take over the current clinical trial 3 process. Continuous data monitoring can be done by the regulators during the testing process. Clinical trials will eventually become shorter Just –in time manufacturing, novel delivery methods and direct to consumer 4 distribution will be adapted from other industries like the automotive industry Availability of hybrid and transformative technologies propel growth and drive 5 increased utilization of services in medical imaging markets Source: Frost & Sullivan analysis. 11
  • 12. Market Highlights for 2012 Key Market Highlights • The economic downturn, global initiatives like the going green concept, have had an impact on the healthcare system and manufacturers. These reforms have a huge impact on the market participants at various levels. • Home care is the key area of focus for most markets. The transition in the distribution structure, product features are likely to be an area of investment for market participants. • Cardiology is a disease area with huge burden to the healthcare system. The need to reduce the burden on expenditure would increase the need for imaging, diagnostics and treatment therapies. It is a sector that is technologically driven, and there is no dearth of investments in R&D. • Companies in the healthcare sector are moving their focus from a fragmented approach that focuses on multiple diseases towards specialised business models such as the niche therapeutic areas. • Convergence of healthcare is paving the way for new drug delivery mechanisms, personalised and targeted medicines. • A growing middle class in developing nations provides new clinical diagnostics market opportunities. With increasing purchasing power in the developing world, more people will gain access to private healthcare services, due to an increase in disposable income which will enable health insurance coverage. 12
