FMCG Opportunities and Challenges in Africa

The African continent is seeing rapid economic growth, coupled with a substantial increase in middle-class population and disposable income levels. Global companies are eyeing the African market for future growth and investing accordingly, especially in the fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) segment. For companies planning to enter/expand in Africa, the key is to look beyond the obvious and invest in emerging economies in the African continent for sustained growth. In this paper, we have identified countries within the African continent that have the potential to yield above average returns for FMCG companies, using a two-tiered screening process. Furthermore, we have highlighted the unique consumer characteristics and market dynamics of the selected countries along with some key challenges that warrant consideration for FMCG companies.

Arthur D. Little’s “Future of the Internet Study” Broadens the Open Internet Debate (Englisch)

Arthur D. Little’s “Future of the Internet Study” Broadens the Open Internet Debate

Driving Investments, Growth and Quality of Experience in the Internet of the Future

The internet has rapidly evolved from a static data platform to become a streaming video platform, and is soon expected to see its next wave of growth in machine-to-machine and any-to-any video communications. By 2030, the ‘Internet of Everything’ potentially adds trillions of euros in value to the public and private sectors. This report investigates the drivers of this growth and the investment incentives in the ‘upstream’ part of internet IP connectivity where all the autonomous networks of the world interconnect.

The study shows that the internet remains vital, dynamic and competitive, driven by a sector that is in transition. Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and Content & Application Providers (CAPs) are constantly innovating the way they interconnect. Existing IP interconnection agreements such as transit and peering are seeing a significant increase in and growing imbalance of IP traffic as the result of streaming video. Most of the industry is adapting flexibly to new business models. For example, disputes concern less than 1% of all interconnection agreements. New interconnection agreements (e.g. paid peering, deep caching) are implemented to support the trend of storing popular content close to the access networks. Global CAPs invest in proprietary Content Delivery Network (CDN) infrastructures (server parks). Commercial CDN services have become affordable to small CAPs as interconnection costs are strongly falling, up to 30% per year. Combined with the very competitive market for last mile broadband internet services in Europe, this market seems well positioned for growth, investment and innovation.

Winning the Telecom Famine (Englisch)

Winning the Telecom Famine

Applying Analytics to Create Value in Saturated Markets

In today’s challenging market environment, telecom management often implements spend-based segmentation and reactive pricing with a focus on short-term subscriber acquisition goals. This approach, however, has been at the expense of significant market value and a paradigm shift is now needed to escape the downward pricing spiral.

Arthur D. Little has created a value management approach based on advanced analytics that is proven to preserve market value rather than destroy it; our work with operators in Europe and MENA region has resulted in an increase of total monthly gross add value by more than 20 percent.

Industrial Park Governance (Englisch)

Industrial Park Governance

The Vital Cog for Success

Governments often resort to the creation of industrial parks to catalyse the economy of a region or of the whole country. They invest tax-payer money into infrastructure projects with a view to attract investors into the park. If the park is thriving, these investors will in turn pay land rentals or dividends through their joint ventures with the park’s governing entity. They will also bring jobs to the region or the country, corporate tax income to the state or federal government and will enhance the park’s visibility with their own stature.

Economies of scale and synergies are driving the creation of large industrial parks. However, governments often struggle to establish an effective and empowered governing entity to administer and develop these parks. This article stresses the benefits of a governing entity, discusses the key questions faced by most governing entities, as well as governance models observed around the world and their characteristics. Finally, it establishes what criteria should be used to choose the best model and applies them to select it.

The Automotive CO2 Emissions Challenge (Englisch)

The Automotive CO2 Emissions Challenge

2020 Regulatory Scenario for Passenger Cars

Oil dependency and climate change are topics highly debated by governments and communities, and as a consequence, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) must define investments, control manufacturing costs and review their car portfolios constantly to cope with worldwide future challenges. To predict the future development of automotive CO2 regulations up to 2020, Arthur D. Little defined key trends and regulation stability in different countries.

Media & Entertainment: Flow of Funds (Englisch)

Media & Entertainment: Flow of Funds

Arthur D. Little’s Analysis for Spain

The size of the media & entertainment sector in Spain decreased by 26% between 2007 and 2013, from €23.000 to €16.900 million. In Spain, as well as in other countries, this sector is going through an accelerated transition towards the digital world. However, this transition is far from compensating for the collapse of consumers’ and advertisers’ contribution to the traditional industries due to the crisis, piracy and lack of effective online commercialization models. The actual economic recovery environment fosters an optimistic outlook for the coming years, although most of the value will have to be captured in a different manner to traditional ways. It seems that the necessary conditions exist for digital business models to start taking off with strength. In order to capture the value that can be generated in the sector:

  • Overall, participants must join forces to tackle the piracy problem, adequately measure and monetize online activity, and seize the opportunity that the Internet offers to enter new markets.
  • In particular, several opportunities are appearing for different players, emphasizing the following: i) develop a high-speed Internet offering, ii) monetize the use of telecom networks made by OTT applications, iii) partner with telecom operators in content offering, iv) adopt favorable content-delivery strategies on a long-term basis, and v) implement and monetize the value of targeted advertising.

Healthcare Innovation (Englisch)

Healthcare Innovation

Value Creation in a Patient-Centric Healthcare Ecosystem

The rapid growth of specialty pharmaceuticals is creating structural changes across the entire healthcare landscape. Substantial differences between specialty and traditional pharmaceuticals – not only structurally and chemically but often in terms of distribution, marketing, and regulation – are creating new market opportunities while simultaneously challenging the current healthcare ecosystem.

The discovery, development, manufacturing, delivery, and sales of specialty pharmaceuticals require new and advanced tools, technologies, and expertise.

While these structural changes present significant challenges to traditional pharmaceutical manufacturers to comply with new health regulations, they also present opportunities for a variety of stakeholders from biotechnology and diagnostics companies to new entrants, such as third party logistic providers, packaging manufacturers, health economics, information technology, and telecommunications firms.
