High-end toiletries for kids - A study of the development and the predicted future of the market

Dahl, Therese, Nordlund, Rikard, Thornander, Filippa January 2008 (has links)
This study aims to obtain a better understanding of the development of the kids market. The aim is also to find out the future directions of this market, with a focus on high-end toiletries for children. Furthermore, the authors will highlight important marketing aspects that need to be considered both by companies entering the market, as well as companies already operating on the market. The authors already had expectations and general knowledge about the topic, due to its frequent media publicity during recent years, therefore a deductive approach was the most suitable one. Moreover, a qualitative method with open interviews was used in order to obtain a deeper knowledge about the topic. The result from the interviews indicates a future growth on the kids market. Companies have to focus a lot on the kids in the future in order to avoid a revenue decline in this particular customer segment.

Barriers to broadband market development in rural areas in South Africa.

Macharia, Caroline Wangari 25 July 2013 (has links)
Thesis (M.M. (ICT Policy and Regulation))--University of the Witwatersrand, Faculty of Commerce, Law and Management, Graduate School of Public and Development, 2013. / This research study investigates challenges affecting the supply and demand side factors of the broadband ecosystem that hinder the market development of broadband in rural areas in South Africa and how policy and regulation has affected the evolution of the broadband ecosystem in rural areas. Although the elements of the broadband ecosystem are strong and well placed in urban areas, not all elements of the broadband ecosystem in rural areas are in place and equally strong. The relative strengths and weaknesses of the different elements of the broadband ecosystem in rural areas are unknown and demand and supply side factors are not understood. Hence the broadband policy may not be based on a full understanding of the complex ecosystem. The study points to a classic case of market failure that exists in rural areas in relation to the broadband market development. The study identifies that a governance framework, investment management framework, universal access funding model, sufficient frequency spectrum resources, policies and regulation that specifically address the development of the broadband market in rural areas are lacking. Although the barriers and gaps identified in this study are known to the industry this research study goes further to corroborate from an academic research perspective the existence of these barriers that are affecting the broadband market development of rural areas.

Stock market development in Africa: is there a need for a cross-regional collaborative stock exchange?

Letlape, Bontle Virginia 21 February 2013 (has links)
This paper explores the relationship between stock market development and economic growth in Africa. It provides a theoretical basis for establishing the channel through which stock market affect economic growth and this is empirically examined by using regression analysis to test if indeed there is such a relationship. Three stock market indicators, namely market capitalization as a percentage of GDP, turnover ratio and numbers of listed shares, are used to test whether they have any impact on economic growth, together with other explanatory variables of growth such as foreign direct investment, inflation and credit. The study uses data on four countries: Kenya, Nigeria, Egypt and South Africa for the period 1991-2010. Furthermore, the study investigated whether a collaborative regional cross-listing will improve the stock market development of the country of secondary listing. Dummy variables and interactive variables are used in regressions to test for collaborative relationships between the exchanges in the region. The results show that indeed there is an association between stock market development and economic growth. Results also show that cross-listing within a region can boost stock market development, which in turn boosts economic growth. Africa does not have a lot of cross-listings but from this paper, the evidence suggests that it is a path worth exploring.

Renewable Energy Sector in The Republic of Serbia: Constraints in Renewable Energy Market Development / Renewable Energy Sector in The Republic of Serbia: Constraints in Renewable Energy Market Development

Drobnjak, Marina January 2016 (has links)
This thesis analyzes the challenges associated with the countries in socioeconomic and political transition when on the path of integrating into the developed world unions or on the path of fulfilling projected renewable energy targets. As an example country, or as a study case here, The Republic of Serbia has been selected. The thesis addresses the question of how the Renewable Energy Market in Serbia is developing and how are the challenges being addressed. Thesis reveals that main obstacles come from the ownership of the energy and the power gird assets which are still entirely owned and controlled by the State. Due to this fact it is hard to introduce the planned renewable projects, mostly to be developed and owned by foreign entities, and at the same time to be forced to reduce domestic power production out of the thermal power plants. However, by being on the path to the EU, the renewable energy targets and the RES (Renewable Energy Sources) market have to be accomplished and the government has to show full legislative and policy support. It is also realized that there is a significant discrepancy between the "say and do" in the case of The Republic of Serbia, at least so far. The thesis highlights the important driving factors that, despite of the local resistance and sluggishness,...

Public Procurement and the Development of the Swedish Telecommunications Market

Lindskog, Helena January 2008 (has links)
This thesis describes and analyses public procurement and its processes in general against the framework of industrial marketing and purchasing. In particular, it focuses on the public procurement of telecommunications (“telecom”) and its effects on the de-monopolization and development of the Swedish telecom market based on empirical material from three case studies, interviews and publicly available written sources. Public procurement is a significant part of any country’s economy. There is a plenitude of publicly available data due to Sweden’s and other public administrations’ transparency policies. Despite this fact, public procurement has been poorly covered in business administration literature when compared with the private sector’s purchasing and selling activities. This thesis tries to bridge the theoretical gap between knowledge of purchasing in business-to-business (“B2B”) and public procurement. Public procurement can be considered as a special type of B2B transaction and, particularly in the case of bigger procurements, of project purchasing. The important difference is that public procurement must follow specific and stricter legislation compared with the private sector’s purchasing activities. Among other things, public procurement law restricts contact between the procuring organisation and tenderers in some phases of the procurement process, allows no changes after the publishing of the Request for Proposal and opens the possibility to appeal to the court if any party considers that the procuring organisation has not acted in accordance with the public procurement rules. The telecom market has, over a period of thirty years, been transformed from a monopoly with practically no choice to a fully competitive market with several service and equipment providers as well as different pricing schemes and competing technical solutions. The development of the Swedish telecom market can be divided into four stages: Full monopoly, partial de-monopolization, full competition and system integration. The main driving forces behind this development have been the political decision to liberate the telecom market and achieve full competition as well as rapid and diverse technical development, which includes the introduction of mobile communication, broadband and Internet. At the same time, the dependency on well functioning telecom in the public sector is constantly increasing due to political agendas such as agencies availability 24 hours 365 days (“24/7 agency”), use of telecom as a means of rationalization and increased internal efficiency as well as new usages in areas that previously were not using telecom in their daily routines. The public procurement of telecom has changed from being a relatively simple administrative issue through being of technical concern to becoming more and more of strategic importance, especially in case of outsourcing and/or procuring system integration from a prime contractor.

Preliminariai išskirti probleminiai šalies regionai tiriami siekiant identifikuoti veiksnius, turinčius didžiausią įtaką depresinių šalies regionų darbo rinkos raidai. Problemos kompleksinės analizės finalas – trečiajame darbo skyriuje. Čia pagrindžiami depresinių šalies regionų darbo rinkos plėtros sprendimai, kurių kompleksinio taikymo sinergetinis efektas užtikrintų geresnius depresinių šalies regionų, o tuo pačiu ir visos šalies, socialinės ekonominės raidos rezultatus. / The scientific work consists of introduction, three working sections, conclusive findings. This dissertation work is based on the logics of sectoral analysis in accordance with which the analysed problem of labour market development in depressed regions of the country is understood as a regional cross-section of the entire economic system and of labour market problems. Starting with a discussion of the most general issues of the topic in the first working section – concept, classification system, generalisation of particular criteria, experience in the development of regions, labour market and social security systems, the author comes to the analysis of elements reflecting the peculiarities of the problem at issue, i.e., based on statistic mathematical methods and elimination principle, indicators are selected for reliable and operative characterisation of problematic and depressed situations. Pre-identified problematic regions of the country are further analysed in order to identify factors that have the biggest influence on the labour market development in depressed regions of the country. The complex analysis of the problem is finalised in the third working section of the dissertation which contains justification of the solutions for the labour market development in the depressed regions. Synergy effects of complex application of such solutions would ensure better results of the socio-economic development in the depressed regions and, at the same time, in the whole country...
