Life Sciences and Healthcare

 

Health care is provided by both private and government institutions. It is a burgeoning industry with an ageing population and longer life expectancies driving demand for short- and long-term care.

 

Scientific, technological and clinical advancements have revolutionised the industry and resulted in new discoveries, diagnoses and treatments. This progression has brought rapid technological change and obsolescence in the medical equipment industry and the development of smaller, faster and more flexible medical equipment with more functionality.

 

Economic obsolescence  through environmental legislation of the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) and the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) EU Directives have resulted in lead-free components being produced, making previous components obsolete. The value of fixed assets will be scrutinised as technological and economic obsolescence will affect carrying values through the effects of lower cost technology and environmental and regulatory legislation.
