Italy eyes Alitalia relaunch with private industrial offers

ROME — The Italian government is hoping the Alitalia airline will turn a new page after four private investors expressed an interest in joining the state railway, the Italian treasury and Delta Air Lines in trying once again to relaunch the struggling flagship carrier.Monday marked the deadline for offers of partners to help relaunch Alitalia, which declared bankruptcy two years ago. Alitalia has long suffered from competition from low-cost carriers and been unable to come up with a successful plan to establish itself as a player in lucrative, long-haul routes.Italian Deputy Premier Luigi Di Maio said four offers had arrived ahead of Monday’s deadline: The Atlantia group of the Benetton empire; German Efromovich of Colombian carrier Avianca; Carlo Toto, whose Air One airline was acquired by Alitalia in 2009; and businessman Claudio Lotito.The Associated Press read more

Brexit Opponents of nodeal with EU defeat PM Boris Johnson who promises

LONDON — British lawmakers defeated Boris Johnson in parliament on Tuesday in a bid to prevent him taking Britain out of the EU without a divorce agreement, prompting the prime minister to announce that he would immediately push for a snap election.The government was defeated by 328 to 301 on a motion put forward by opposition parties and rebel lawmakers in Johnson’s party – who had been warned they would be kicked out of the Conservative Party if they defied the government.More than three years after the United Kingdom voted in a referendum to leave the European Union, the defeat leaves the course of Brexit unresolved, with possible outcomes still ranging from a turbulent ‘no-deal’ exit to abandoning the whole endeavor.House of Commons votes 328 to 301 to approve the emergency debate motion on European Union (Withdrawal). This removes control of the business on 4 September 2019 from the Government, enabling the introduction of further EU Withdrawal legislation. pic.twitter.com/CDRsRZli6S— UK House of Commons (@HouseofCommons) September 3, 2019Tuesday’s victory is only the first hurdle for lawmakers, enabling them to take control of parliamentary business.On Wednesday they will seek to pass a law forcing Johnson to ask the EU to delay Brexit – for a third time – until Jan. 31 unless he has a deal approved by parliament beforehand on the terms and manner of the exit.Story continues belowThis advertisement has not loaded yet,but your article continues below.It puts Johnson in a similar bind to that faced by his predecessor Theresa May, who failed three times to get the backing of lawmakers for the Withdrawal Agreement that she had negotiated with the EU. Johnson took over from her six weeks ago with a promise that his more robust approach would force a better deal out of the EU that would satisfy parliament.The 21 Conservative rebels who now face expulsion from the party include Nicholas Soames, the grandson of Britain’s World War Two leader Winston Churchill, and two former finance ministers — Philip Hammond and Kenneth Clarke.“I don’t want an election, but if MPs vote tomorrow to stop negotiations and compel another pointless delay to Brexit, potentially for years, then that would be the only way to resolve this,” Johnson told parliament after the vote.“I can confirm that we are tonight tabling a motion under the Fixed Term Parliament Act.” Anti-Brexit protesters attend a demonstration in London on Tuesday, Sept. 3, 2019. In an historic showdown between prime minister and parliament, Johnson’s opponents said they wanted to prevent him playing Russian roulette with a country once touted as a confident pillar of Western economic and political stability.They argue that nothing can justify the risk of a ‘no-deal’ Brexit that would cut economic ties overnight with Britain’s biggest export market and inevitably bring huge economic dislocation.Johnson cast the challenge as an attempt to force Britain to surrender to the EU just as he hopes to secure concessions on the terms of the divorce, helped by the threat to walk out without one. Ahead of the vote, he said would never accept another delay to Brexit beyond Oct. 31.“Parliament is on the brink of wrecking any deal we might be able to strike in Brussels,” Johnson said. “Because tomorrow’s bill would hand control of the negotiations to the EU.”Johnson’s government will now seek to hold a vote on Wednesday to approve an early election, most likely on Oct. 14. This would pit the avowed Brexiteer against Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, a veteran socialist.In the Brexit maelstrom, though, it was unclear whether opposition parties would support such a move – which requires the support of two-thirds of the 650-seat House of Commons.Corbyn has long demanded an election as the best way out of the crisis, but many of those seeking to prevent a ‘no-deal’ Brexit say Johnson could time the poll to ensure that parliament cannot prevent an Oct. 31 departure – with or without a deal.After the vote, Corbyn told Johnson that he must get the Brexit delay bill that will be discussed on Wednesday passed before trying to call an election.

Ammar Awad / Reuters TOLGA AKMEN / AFP/Getty Images The 2016 Brexit referendum showed a United Kingdom divided about much more than the European Union, and has fueled soul-searching about everything from secession and immigration to capitalism, empire and modern Britishness.It has also triggered civil war inside both of Britain’s main political parties as dozens of lawmakers put what they see as the United Kingdom’s fate above that of party loyalty.Just as Johnson began speaking, he lost his working majority in parliament when one of his own Conservative lawmakers, Phillip Lee, crossed the floor of the House of Commons to join the pro-EU Liberal Democrats.The pound, which has gyrated to the twists and turns of Brexit since the 2016 referendum and is highly sensitive to the prospect of a ‘no-deal’ exit, had briefly dipped as low as $1.1959 before the vote in parliament. Barring a minutes-long “flash crash” in October 2016, sterling has not regularly traded at such low levels since 1985.Fears of a ‘no-deal’ Brexit were rising elsewhere.The European Commission said such a scenario was a “very distinct possibility” and French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said it was the most likely scenario.In a document seen by Reuters, the European Commission set out proposals to be published on Wednesday to provide financial help for EU businesses, workers and farmers if Britain crashes out of the bloc without any agreement.It restated its view that a ‘no-deal’ divorce would hit the British economy much harder than that of the EU.The U.N. trade agency UNCTAD said it would cost Britain at least $16 billion in lost exports to the EU, plus a further substantial sum in indirect costs.The U.S. investment bank JPMorgan said an election would make a no-deal Brexit more likely.

TimorLeste midwives get UN motorcycles in bid to slash maternal mortality

Expanding midwife services is among the main health objectives of the newly independent state and is particularly crucial in a country with a maternal death rate estimated at 850 per 100,000 live births, the UN Population Fund (UNFPA) said. It is estimated that only one quarter of all deliveries in Timor-Leste are currently attended by a trained midwife, and increasing the number of midwife-assisted deliveries will help lower maternal death rates.“The problem is that there are just not enough midwives in the country,” Daniel Baker, UNFPA Chief of Operations in Timor-Leste, said during a handover ceremony in the capital, Dili, last week. “Because the areas that the midwives service are often very extensive, with many remote locales, we can only make a difference if we can expand their outreach. That is what these motorbikes are meant to do – to give midwives, especially rural midwives, the opportunity to carry out more pre- and post-natal care visits and to enable them to reach women in remote locations at the time of delivery.” read more

On Day of Solidarity with missing staff UN calls for wide safety

With the number of its personnel arrested, under detention or missing increasing from 26 to 43, the United Nations today called on all countries where its peacekeepers are deployed and all parties to armed conflict to ensure the safety of every one of the world organization’s workers or associated staff. “Violence, hostility and crime continue to plague the ability of the United Nations and others to do their jobs,” Secretary-General Kofi Annan said in a message marking the International Day of Solidarity with Detained and Missing Staff Members. The Day “offers an opportunity to raise global awareness about the significant threats and risks faced in the line of duty by United Nations staff and peacekeepers, our colleagues in the non-governmental community and our friends in the press,” he added.The event marks the abduction by armed men, in 1985, near Beirut Airport, of Alec Collett, on assignment for the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA). The fate of Mr. Collett, a former journalist and Director of the UN Information Centre in Ghana, has never been determined. As 25 March is a Saturday, this year’s Day, the 21st anniversary of Mr. Collett’s abduction, is being celebrated today at UN Headquarters in New York with the distribution of lapel pins, intended to highlight the importance of staff safety and security. General Assembly President Jan Eliasson was to receive the first pin from Mr. Collett’s wife Elaine.“In many places, the threat of being taken hostage is prevalent,” Mr. Annan said in his message. “Some host Governments remain unwilling to provide timely information when locally recruited United Nations personnel are arrested or detained. And very few countries have fully investigated attacks or other threats.“Such problems, troubling at any time, have become an even greater concern today, with the dramatic increase in the number of United Nations field personnel, and with the expansion of mandates into delicate areas, such as criminal justice,” he added.He congratulated the 80 Member States who have already joined the UN Convention on the Safety of UN and Associated Personnel. “However, very few of the parties are countries in whose territories peacekeeping forces are currently deployed, where the greatest threats typically exist,” he noted.“I call on these countries, in particular, and all parties to armed conflicts, to uphold their responsibilities under international humanitarian law, to ensure the safety of all civilians caught in combat. A culture of accountability is the best antidote to impunity, and remains the surest means of enabling United Nations staff members to safely apply their courage and commitment in meeting the needs of the world.”As an example of the risks facing UN personnel, 27 national staff working for the UN Mission in Ethiopia and Eritrea (UNMEE) were arrested by the Eritrean authorities in February for varying durations, and militia groups kidnapped two staff members in Somalia earlier this month. read more

Justin Blackmon Finally Signs With Jaguars

Justin Blackmon is in the record books and he has not even played a game yet for the Jacksonville Jaguars. He certainly did not plan for the dubious distinction he acquired, but then who would?Blackmon became this year’s final first-round draft pick to sign a contract. The No. 5 overall will show up for his first NFL practice Tuesday after he signs a four-year deal worth $19.5 million, according to the Florida Times-Union.As it is in today’s technologically advanced times, the Jaguars announced the contract agreement with Blackmon via the team’s Twitter account.In any case, the club is ready to have the receiver with so much potential begin working on his craft with his teammates. Blackmon isn’t likely to play in the Jaguars’ first preseason game Friday against the New York Giants. New rules call for a player to have three days of non-contact work before he’s allowed to put on full pads. Starting practice Tuesday only allows for two days of non-contact work before the preseason game.Whatever the case, Blackmon will arrive with a cloud of drama hanging over him and suspect eyes because of his troubled past.The former Oklahoma State star pleaded guilty last month to drunken driving in Oklahoma. He negotiated a deal that did not included jail time.Still, it was s disturbing scenario. Blackmon was arrested in Stillwater, Okla., on June 3 and charged with aggravated DUI when he registered a .24 alcohol level, three times the legal limit. He later apologized and indicated that he would stop drinking.This arrest followed an arrest for an alcohol-related offense while at Oklahoma State, leading to speculation that the Jaguars wanted some sort of contractual protection should he run afoul of the law again.It is not clear at this time if that kind of stipulation was a sticking point in the contract negotiations. read more

Outokumpus timely Service Centre initiative

first_imgWhen Outokumpu Technology set up its Australian Service Centre four years ago, a global resource boom wasn’t even on the radar. But with the Centre trebling in size by 2006, the company is now well placed to provide world-class skills to enhance the efficiency of its customers’ plants.Operating from bases in Sydney and Perth, the Service Centre has been structured to provide vital skills at a time of unprecedented demand for them, says its Manager, Jason King. With a core establishment of two dozen staff, supported by expertise from Outokumpu’s operations worldwide, the Centre is focused on key service areas including preventative maintenance, upgrades, spare parts management and excellence in training and safety.“Our service skills span the spectrum, from process audits and optimization, through to the application of proper maintenance skills and spares management. We have developed a solid track record in installation/shutdown supervision, as well as some upgrade and modernization projects involving turnkey design and construction work where that is of benefit to our customers.“Where our customers have a service need, we can do much more than supply technology and parts – we can install, supervise, commission and also handle vital ancillary work such as foundations, piping, structural, plant cut-in and electrical installation. At a time where our industry is searching for resources, Outokumpu is stepping up to the plate and offering more and more assistance” he said.The latest step in the multi-million dollar investment in the Service Centre came with the recent opening of a new Service Facility in Kewdale, Perth. This is equipped to inspect and overhaul equipment, perform tests on behalf of customers, complete pre-assembly work and consolidate spares deliveries for West Australian customers.Reflecting the rapid response requirements of the business, the Kewdale facility has sea containers packed with supplies and tools ready to roll for install and overhaul projects. “We are equipped to apply expertise wherever we are needed, and aim to be available whenever we are needed,” says KingWith many companies urgently seeking to outsource roles previously managed on site, Outokumpu Technology presents a wealth of experience and expertise in areas such as comminution, flotation, thickening, analysers, automation and physical separation. Service Centre teams focus on specific areas of need, including: spares, service, customer training, audits and optimisation, and upgrade and modernization projects.Our programmes focus on areas where plants, processes and personnel skills can be improved to promote greater profitability, reduced risk of breakdowns, increased technology life, increased safety and motivated plant personnel,” says King.” Our series of regional training seminars, for example, are now backed by on-site, customized training programmes. These utilize training material with practical benefits proven in the field. A number of sites are now employing this resource so plant managers can get the best from new staff, while also demonstrating to their new recruits a commitment to ongoing training. Regular training ensures not only optimum operation, but also results in motivated staff – a key consideration in today’s labour market”The Centre’s field and process engineers in Sydney and Perth are available for troubleshooting, inspection, breakdown assistance, regular preventative maintenance, calibration and other vital ongoing tasks. All Outokumpu’s site supervisors undergo workplace health and safety officer training, ensuring appropriate OH&S qualification to handle supervision of site shutdowns.The Service Centre’s Spares Department has introduced initiatives such as site-specific spares list management to facilitate streamlined inventory control. “Some sites do not have easy access to accurate parts information, which can present unnecessary challenges, sometimes resulting in wrong parts being ordered. Feedwell retrofit by the Service Centre on a 30-m thickener at Cannington“Some spares, particularly those with long lead times, are critical to preventing prolonged downtime.  Our ongoing cataloguing service means any site can request and receive from us a fully detailed spares list, with lead time and pricing for all available parts. With this information, maintenance managers can assess any operational risks associated with lead times for replacement components.  Site-specific spares lists assist maintenance planners with comprehensive inventory control and ensure prompt supply of genuine OEM spare parts” says King.last_img read more

Xolo X900 is the first Intelpowered Android phone to go on sale

first_imgOn April 23rd, Intel will finally see the first smartphone powered by one of their processors go up for sale. The Lava Xolo X900 will be offered up to customers in India for INR 22,000, or about $425. For comparison’s sake, Aircel currently sells the iPhone 3GS outright for INR 20,990 and the 16GB iPhone 4 for 34,500 — nearly 60% more than the X900.Those who pick up the first Medfield phone will get a 1.6GHz Atom Z2460 processor with a 400MHz GPU running Android Gingerbread. As has been the case with many recent Android smartphone launches, Lava is promising that an over-the-air update to Ice Cream Sandwich will follow sometime in the near future. The X900 also features a 4-inch, 600×1024 display (295 PPI), 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a 1.3MP front and 8MP rear camera (with 10 shot per second burst mode), and HSPA+ connectivity.Intel estimates that the X900 will deliver around eight hours of talk time, 45 hours of MP3 playback, and five hours of 3G browsing. Though some brand conscious Indian customers may be put off by the fact that the phone is launching on Lava (which doesn’t have the best reputation when it comes to after-sales service), that big Intel inside logo on the back could prove to be quite persuasive.The launch of the X900 on Lava will instantly give Intel a big smartphone retail presence — Lava has 1,000 distributors in India and their phones can be purchased in about 50,000 locations around the country.Now that the first Medfield phone is out there, it shouldn’t be long before one pops up for sale in the West.

All thousands want for Christmas is electricity

first_imgDETROIT — The ice that snapped utility poles and knocked out power to more than half a million people in the U.S. and Canada was stubbornly hanging on Wednesday as frigid temperatures cloaked a region from the Great Lakes to New England.Utility crews from Maine to Michigan and into Canada made progress getting the lights back on Wednesday and people were slowly trickling out of shelters to spend Christmas Day at their finally-warm homes. But the cold means ice isn’t melting off lines and limbs, while wind gusts of more than 20 mph could bring down more branches. Two to 6 inches of snow in places on Thursday will hamper line crews trying to get to remote spots.“We’ve had two beautiful, sunny days in Maine and the ice isn’t going anyplace,” said Lynette Miller, spokeswoman for the Maine Emergency Management Agency. “They’re very concerned about more weight coming down on trees that are already compromised by ice.”Ashley Walter was still hunkered down with her husband, Jacob, and their month-old daughter, Leah, at a shelter set up in a school in Litchfield, Maine, where the temperature dropped to 4 degrees overnight and wasn’t expected to get much higher than 15 on Wednesday.last_img read more

Huge leaps in AI have made facial recognition smarter than your brain

first_imgPropelling the spread of facial recognition systems are huge leaps in artificial intelligence, the technology that seeks to give computers some of the ability, versatility and even creativity of human thinking. The biggest improvements have come through a specific area of AI called neural networks, inspired by the actual workings of human brain cells. Hardware and software improvements enabled an approach called deep learning — multiple layers of digital neurons that provide increasingly refined image analysis. Overall, it’s a profound change. Recognizing and interpreting human faces is so important to us that whole sections of our brains are devoted to it. As we teach computers those skills, our interactions with them become more convenient — less like submitting database commands and more like dealing with the natural world in which we evolved. On the flip side, facial recognition can undercut privacy as our anonymity evaporates. How neural networks work In a training phase, neural networks scrutinize vast numbers of images of faces, learning on their own what’s important in the recognition process. It’s more accurate than the old way, with programmers describing what eyes, noses and mouths look like. “Some layers capture color and texture and gradients,” said Amit Roy-Chowdhury, chair of electrical and computer engineering at the University of California, Riverside. “As you go deeper, they capture the shape of different parts of the object and ultimately the shape of the object itself.” Facial recognition: Your face, your passwordThis is part of a CNET special report exploring the benefits and pitfalls of facial recognition.After training, neural networks create a stripped-down mathematical representation for each face. That representation can be compared rapidly with those of other faces, letting a facial recognition system decide if a person entering an office is on an authorized employee list or raise an alert when a potential shoplifter also appears on police arrest records. To work well, facial recognition systems need images with well-illuminated, clear faces that give a neural network detailed, accurate data. That’s why passport photos require even lighting, plain backgrounds, neutral expressions and subjects facing straight toward the camera. “You try to make your input as consistent as possible so your analysis can be easier,” said Raj Minhas, leader of Xerox’s PARC Interaction and Analytics Lab. Errors in the system Facial recognition systems are getting better, but can still return errors. False positives match a face when no match should exist, such as when a person’s image isn’t in the database. A false negative occurs when the system misses a match it should have made. Top-notch facial recognition systems today are 99.7 percent accurate with good lighting conditions, a 2018 study from the National Institute of Standards and Technology found. One way to reduce errors is to tune the system by pushing some of the data apart to make it clearer for the neural net, reducing the likelihood of a false positive, said Marios Savvides, director of the CyLab Biometrics Center at Carnegie Mellon University. Savvides’ team is also blending modern AI with an older approach called correlation filters that allows neural networks to improve facial recognition accuracy when faces are obscured, poorly lit or facing away from the camera. Overall, Savvides’ team is able to reconstruct faces even when they’re looking away or obscured by breathing masks, he said. “We live in a time where AI can surpass the human brain’s capability,” he said. Another way to improve facial recognition is to pair it with other attributes, such as fingerprints, voice prints and other biometric data, or factors such as passwords. That might not work well when a system is just scanning people walking into a store, but it’s pretty common for controlled situations where people are logging into a network. Artificial intelligence (AI) Laptops Tech Industry Security 16 Share your voice Facial recognition: Get to know the tech that gets to… Comments Now playing: Watch this: Royal Caribbean Cruises has begun using facial recognition systems to speed passengers on their way through security and ID checks. Royal Caribbean Cruises You and your family are at the pier, giddy to board the massive cruise ship docked nearby. Ahead lies a week of sunny beaches, indulgent buffet feasts and lounging around doing absolutely nothing. And then you see the long lines for security, baggage and ID checks. It often takes 75 minutes for passengers to check in, but the Pool Deck looks a lifetime away. Royal Caribbean Cruises thinks it has the answer to getting passengers aboard faster: AI-powered facial recognition. In December, passengers started taking part in a pilot program at a company embarkation point in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Passengers take selfies with the company’s app, then at the port, an AI-powered database matches their faces. After a quick double-check, Royal Caribbean’s staff members direct guests to their cabins. The result: all-time high customer satisfaction. “We wanted to turn what was a cold transaction into a really welcoming moment,” said Jay Schneider, who runs the Miami company’s digital operations. The goal is to get passengers “from car to bar in 10 minutes.” Royal Caribbean Cruises is hardly alone. Facial recognition technology is used to spot friends on Facebook and unlock your iPhone. It’s been rolled out in airports, at cash registers and on home security systems. It may soon be inescapable. We live in a time where AI can surpass the human brain’s capability. Marios Savvides, director of the CyLab Biometrics Center at Carnegie Mellon University 5:11 Tags “We call it irrefutable identity,” said Vishal Gupta, chief technology officer at Unisys, which sells biometric authentication technology to the US Customs and Border Protection agency, among other customers. Unisys’ facial recognition system alone is 99 percent accurate, but with an approach it calls fusion that blends in other biometric factors, the company reaches 99.9 percent or 99.99 percent accuracy. Facial recognition promises convenience, but it isn’t without concerns. Privacy advocates worry it will usher in an era of Big Brother monitoring or companies secretly tracking you. It also raises questions about AI bias; if you train a system using images of mostly white people, a common practice, the system might have difficulty recognizing people of color. Bias can creep into data sets in other ways, too, based on the data sets that are used to train the AI. If the photos used to train an AI show women cooking, the system might automatically conclude that women are likely to be in the kitchen. “There’s no good way to know your data set is biased until you notice it failing,” said Broad Daylight security consultant Nick Merrill. “And by the time a biased algorithm wreaks real-world havoc, it’s too late.” Still, many companies are thinking about how to use facial recognition to enhance the experience of their customers, visitors, patients and guests. They want facial recognition to make interactions easier, not creepy. Hello, hospital Northwell Health, which serves 3.5 million patients and is the largest health care provider in New York, is using a facial recognition program to streamline patient visits, reduce clerical errors and ultimately improve health. Its system, whose hardware and software are made by RightPatient, uses sophisticated cameras that photograph faces and irises of patients. When a patient arrives for a checkup, the receptionist’s computer confirms the patient’s identity and pulls up his or her chart for the doctor. If there’s no record, the patient is enrolled with an ID check. We’re literally putting a face with a name. Laura Semlies, vice president, Northwell Health The system offers a number of advantages besides a smoother arrival in an office with less fumbling for ID. It’s less susceptible to problems of duplicate records for the same patient. If you’re already in the system, it’ll recognize you even if you got married and changed your name. Identity theft — think people trying to snatch prescriptions — is reduced because you can’t fake a face. In emergencies like car accidents, the system would be able to identify an unconscious patient so that nurses and doctors could find medical histories and family contacts. “We’re literally putting a face with a name,” said Laura Semlies, vice president of digital patient experience. “It just makes for a better clinical relationship.” Biometric data is protected with encryption and is subject to the same strict privacy limits as other health data, she said. Only about 12,000 of Northwell’s 3.5 million patients are enrolled so far, but now the network is spreading it more broadly around its facilities. Facial recognition ahoy Royal Caribbean Cruises has twice as many passengers as Northwell has patients, and more of them, too, will see facial recognition as the program expands, project leader Schneider said. After finishing selfie and passport-scanning homework, passengers using the optional system can head to the port. As they arrive, passengers see a live view of themselves captured by cameras arrayed across the entrance. They’re arranged to avoid airport-style bottlenecks. Behind the scenes, a computer matches their faces to the ones on record. Once there’s a match, passengers see a green box around their faces on the screens. A human agent verifies the matches, greets the passengers by name and checks their passports. Royal Caribbean is required to have passenger photos, so the facial recognition system doesn’t significantly add to the data the company has. The company deletes passenger photos when the cruise ends, said Schneider, the cruise company’s digital chief. The result is a system that whisks passengers aboard and gets the holiday started more quickly than before. “Guests didn’t feel like they were on vacation until day 2,” Schneider said. “We wanted to give you that day back.” Originally published at 5:00 a.m. PT.last_img read more

Stents Market is Estimated to Grasp 16666 Million and Predicted to

first_imgThe Global Stents Market is expected to garner $16,666 million by 2022. In 2015, Coronary stents was the largest segment in terms of value, whereas peripheral stents was the dominating market segment in terms of volume. Moreover, coronary stents market is projected to be the fastest growing segment in terms of both, value and volume, during 2016-2022. Asia-Pacific is expected to continue leading the geographic segment during the forecast period.The major drivers of the market include increasing geriatric population and high incidence of heart failures & coronary disorders such as esophageal cancer, gall bladder cancer, and other abnormalities. In addition, technological advancements in stent systems, such as advent of bioabsorbable stents, have fueled the market growth. Continuous improvements in healthcare insurance and reimbursement is expected to boost the growth of the stents market in the developing and underdeveloped countries, says lead analyst of the report, Deepa Tatkare. However, high cost of these stents in the emerging countries is one of the major restraining factors of the market, she further added.Download Report Sample @ https://www.alliedmarketresearch.com/request-sample/1603Bioabsorbable stent is expected to be the fastest growing segment, registering a CAGR of 37.2% during the forecast period. The major factors fueling the market growth are increasing focus on the development of bioabsorbable stents and their high adoption rate as they can be easily absorbed in the body and do not cause restenosis/thrombosis.The coronary stents market has a huge potential with the presence of many players developing innovative technologies. Increasing advancements in the field of interventional cardiology coupled with the progress of minimally invasive techniques have significantly extended the potential of therapeutic applications of stents. Coronary stents such as bare metal stents, drug-eluting stents, and bioabsorbable stents can be used to treat coronary artery diseases (CAD).Metallic biomaterial is the dominant segment due to its cost effectiveness and the efficacy of vascular healing as compared to other stents. Natural biomaterials such as animal or plant origin materials have demonstrated several advantages over synthetic biomaterials. These are biocompatible, nontoxic, may also carry specific protein binding sites, and other biochemical signals that may assist in tissue healing or integration. The global natural biomaterial stents market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 10.5% from 2016 to 2022.Have any Query? Ask our Research Experts @ https://www.alliedmarketresearch.com/purchase-enquiry/1603In the current scenario, the U.S. and Europe have the largest customer base for stent implants. However, these regions constitute only 17% share of the world population. Whereas, the Asia-Pacific region constitute around 56.4% of the human population in 2015 (Source: United Nations Department of Economic & Social Affairs); with huge geriatric population; therefore, this region exhibits huge market potential. According to the WHO, the geriatric population in the developing countries is projected to increase by 250% between 2010 and 2050, as compared to 71% in the developed countries. This is expected to increase the patient base in these regions. The Asia-Pacific region accounted for majority of the share in the stents market in 2015, and is expected to maintain this trend throughout the forecast period. This is attributed to the increasing incidence of heart failures, changing lifestyle, improved reimbursement policies, and high adoption of advanced stents in the region.The key players in this market have adopted product development & launch as their key strategies to cater to the changing needs of the industry.
