As more business is increasingly conducted online, more personal and financial information is exchanged using the internet. Cyber attacks and hacking could potentially result in customer identity theft and, consequently, financial loss for a company, placing liability on the business. Cyber liability insurance has become increasingly attractive to companies seeking protection against financial losses from legal issues stemming from data breaches, IBISWorld industry analyst Andrew Krabeepetcharat says. Particularly, e-commerce and online auctions have increased demand for industry services during the five years to 2013, as these online retailers seem to fall victim to cyber security attacks most often.

However, in the five years to 2013, the Cyber Liability Insurance industry has benefited from all types of companies integrating online services into their business operations. During this time, industry revenue is expected to grow at an average annual rate of 11.8% to $ 1.5 billion because of the rising percentage of services conducted online. This skyrocketing growth in revenue includes an expected 17.8% jump in 2013, as a growing number of cyber attacks prompt businesses to take preventative measures. Businesses that manage customer data, such as credit card information, have been a particularly strong source of demand, Krabeepetcharat says.

Concentration in the Cyber Liability Insurance industry is low. Most insurance providers operate within metropolitan areas and provide services to a wide range of clients, which can include Fortune 500 corporations and start-up companies. Nonetheless, market share has decreased in the five years to 2013 because a number of companies entered the industry at a time when data breaches were becoming a large threat. As a result, larger companies have started looking to expand their footprint in more profitable areas where such threats are most prominent.

The Cyber Liability Insurance industry is expected to continue to grow during the five years to 2018. The percentage of services conducted online is projected to increase in the next five years, encouraging more businesses to purchase cyber liability insurance to prevent significant financial loss from potential cyber attacks. Growth in major markets such as healthcare, financial services and retail are expected to help push the industry forward during this period because of growing concerns regarding identity theft. Also, internet traffic volume is expected to grow quickly in the five years to 2018, prompting new online businesses to purchase cyber liability coverage.

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 04, 2012

In the past five years, the Donations, Grants and Endowment industry has endured adverse conditions due to the economic downturn and volatility in the financial markets. In this report, revenue consists of contributions, grants, investment income and realized gains. Prior to 2008, contributions helped drive double-digit revenue growth as wealthy individuals looked into philanthropy, making significant donations to foundations and driving industry revenue. However, according to IBISWorld industry analyst Anna Son, Industry revenue was crippled as businesses and individuals curbed their giving as a result of the recession and credit crisis. Consequently, IBISWorld estimates that industry revenue will decline at an average annual rate of 4.7% to $ 80.9 billion over the five years to 2012. However, as the economy continues to recover, industry revenue is expected to rebound 3.7% in 2012.

Due to the poor financial market performance, foundations struggled to generate investment income, further hurting revenue during the recession. Additionally, grantmaking foundations’ ability to reinvest profit into their company, as profit margins plunged from about 8.2% in 2007 to 5.1% in 2012. However, after the two consecutive years of a double-digit decline, revenue for the Donations, Grants and Endowment industry surged by 18.7% in 2010. This recovery was a result of large companies beefing up their charitable giving, including Walmart, Goldman Sachs, Citigroup and others. Moreover, the commitment of many foundations to maintain their grant budgets or reducing the extent of reductions relative to their assets helped offset what would have been even great declines in foundation giving since 2009. Foundations also benefited from the relatively low level of competition that they face from other organizations. While the majority of industry operators are smaller organizations, even the largest foundations focus on giving to local causes, meaning that there is space in the market for most industry operators to coexist, says Son. For example, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation gives to charities in the Northwest region, while the Lilly Endowment is a major contributor to charities and causes in Indiana; however, neither entity competes with the other. Furthermore, the myriad of charitable causes, both domestically and internationally, ensures that market participants usually find their niche.

Industry revenue is forecast to increase steadily over the next five years. During this period, demand for industry services is expected to remain stable due to charities’ and individuals’ continued reliance on foundation giving; healthcare and education will continue to benefit from the largest shares of foundation grant dollars. In 2013, foundation giving is expected to remain consistent, posting only modest growth. While many foundations will likely be able to keep their giving steady over the next year, some are expected to have to make further cuts in order to preserve profit margins. However, as businesses return to profitability and individuals’ wealth improves, they are likely to raise their charitable giving, thus boosting industry revenue. Furthermore, corporations and other for-profit groups will continue to open trusts and foundations as a way to promote a positive image of their organizations.

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 15, 2012

The Medical Device Manufacturing industry has enjoyed strong revenue growth recently and is forecast to continue expanding in the years ahead. Since 2007, revenue increased at an average annual rate of 12.8%, and sales are expected to grow 7.4% in 2012 alone, to $ 64.7 billion. The US economic downturn did little to deter hospitals and other customers from purchasing medical devices, according to IBISWorld industry analyst Nima Samadi. In fact, more industry companies gained sales in 2008 and 2009 than lost them. The aging US population is a major factor driving demand, as the occurrence of health issues that require medical devices is higher in the elderly population. This demographic is forecast to expand further as a percentage of the total population during the five years to 2017, which will help maintain industry growth.

But revenue in the Medical Device Manufacturing industry will not grow as quickly over the five years to 2017. The changing regulatory environment will be the main hindrance, Samadi said. For example, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 will place an excise tax on medical devices, eating into revenue and reducing profit. Also, potential reform to the approval process for new devices will likely hamper innovation and encourage more companies to shift functions overseas.

Foreign outsourcing of manufacturing, research and development and other operations, combined with industry consolidation, is forecast to decrease the number of industry operators during the next five years. This industry has traditionally had a low level of industry concentration, with no one firm dominating. Small operators are common in this type of industry, and typically specialize in developing technology and products for a niche area. Larger players frequently seek to acquire these firms to expand their product range or gain access to a particular technology. But during the five years to 2012, consolidation has swept the industry, with the number of companies decreasing at an average annual rate of 5.5% to total 828. Meanwhile, emerging markets like China and Brazil will attract medical device manufacturers, as US customers face more stringent Medicare reimbursement requirements and other cost-cutting pressures.
