Overview of the global commercial building fire extinguisher market

Market research analysts at Technavio predict that the global commercial building fire extinguisher market will grow steadily during the next four years and post a CAGR of more than 12% by 2020. This market research analysis identifies the increased level of infrastructure development as one of the primary growth factors for the building fire extinguisher market. To incorporate the rising levels of population, countries across the globe are experiencing rapid urbanization, which results in an exponential increase in the number of residential and commercial buildings. This will increase the demand for construction activity in the coming years and will subsequently drive the demand for building fire extinguishers due to the increased awareness regarding occupational health safety and fire safety.

In terms of geography, Europe will account for the major revenue shares and dominate the market throughout the forecast period. This is mainly attributed to the implementation of stringent fire safety norms in several countries across the region. The European Union introduced regulations in 2011 that mandate every new building construction to undergo the fire performance test known as harmonized classification system for Reaction to Fire. The increase in commercial real estate activities in the region, especially in the countries of Central and Eastern Europe, will fuel the growth of the fire extinguisher market in the coming years.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The market is characterized by the presence of several established fire extinguisher manufacturers who offer portable and wheeled fire extinguishers and a number of other fire prevention systems. Since all

Global outlook of the industrial motherboards market

According to the analysts at Technavio, the global market for industrial motherboards will grow at a CAGR of over 6% by 2021. The augmented adoption of fan-less industrial motherboards is a key factor responsible for the strong growth of this market. Traditionally, industrial motherboards contain fans for the dissipation of excess heat. However, since fans are prone to mechanical failure, especially in hostile industrial environments, the integrity of the overall system gets compromised due to industrial motherboard damage. As a result, fan-less industrial motherboards are increasingly being adopted, especially in fanless industrial PCs to curb instances of system damage.

At present, APAC dominates this market and is anticipated to enhance its hold over the market by the end of 2020. Much of this growth can be attributed to the growing number of Greenfield projects in this region and the recent shift from legacy systems and machinery to automation solutions such as PLCs and industrial PCs.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

This market consists of well-diversified international and regional vendors and established vendors, such as Advantech, Kontron, and Beckhoff Automation. Much of the revenue generated by this market is through direct and indirect sales, which are made through local representatives, certified distributors or dealers, contractors, and system integrators. Also, factors such as differences in product performance, portfolio and service offerings, applications, knowledge of integrated systems, and quality of products make the market highly competitive and volatile.

Key vendors in this market are -

  • Advantech
  • Kontron
  • Beckhoff Automation
  • Avalue Technology

Overview of the building energy management (BEM) services market in India

According to Technavio’s market research analyst, the market for BEM services in India will experience profound growth and post an impressive CAGR of almost 29% by 2020. Much of this market’s growth in India can be attributed to the increasing number of real estate buildings. The real estate sector in India is slotted to witness rapid growth due to developmental activities in both the commercial and residential sectors. Commercial buildings, especially office buildings, are anticipated to drive the prospects for growth in the real estate segment with an absorption of 35 million sq. ft. of office space in 2015. Among office buildings, the IT/ITES sector will account for the highest contribution of office spaces, followed by the banking sector. The office buildings sector is expected to record a CAGR of 8% during the forecast period. Similarly, the housing sector will also contribute to the growth of the real estate activity by growing at a CAGR of 11% during the forecast period.

The adoption of renewable sources of energy is another key factor that will result in the impressive growth of the market. Recently, there has been a recent thrust on implementing sustainable energy practices in India. As a result, the government has laid out plans for building owners to adopt cleaner and renewable sources of energy for power generation. During the forecast period, it is expected that the installed capacity of renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, thermal, and geothermal energy will increase to approximately 1.5 times. Since the increasing energy

Overview of the global computer numerical control (CNC) solutions market

Market research analysts at Technavio predict that the global CNC solutions market will grow steadily over the next four years and post a CAGR of almost 6% by 2021. This market research analysis identifies the increase in demand from small-scale Industries as one of the primary growth factors for this CNC manufacturing solutions market. With the globalization of the manufacturing industry, major players have started focusing on expanding their presence in the emerging countries such as China, India, and Brazil. Moreover, several companies in the developed countries in the Americas and Europe have also started outsourcing their manufacturing requirements to enterprises in the developing countries. This resulted in the emergence of several small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in these regions. The awareness among the SMEs towards the need to manufacture products at low-cost and high-precision will increase the adoption of CNC machines. This, in turn, will result in decreasing the costs of CNC systems and will consecutively drive the growth of the market.

In terms of geographical regions, APAC will be the major revenue contributor to the market throughout the predicted period.  Rapid industrial development in several countries in the region such as China, India, South Korea, Indonesia, and Taiwan and the growth of the automotive industry due to increased investments from various automotive OEMs such as Toyota, GM, and Suzuki towards the construction of new plants in countries such as China and India, will drive the growth of the market in this region.

Global outlook of the mining laboratory automation solutions market

Technavio’s market research analysts predict the global mining laboratory automation solutions market to post a revenue of almost USD 371 million by 2020. This industry research report identifies the inefficiencies in conventional analytical mining laboratory to be one of the major factors that will have a positive impact on the growth of this market in the coming years. The traditional mining analytical laboratory requires all processes from logging-in samples to executing the sample preparation analysis stages manually. As a result, the mining process becomes labor-intensive, and since the control samples require a fast turnaround time, the need for manual labor only increases. Whereas, in an automated mining laboratory, the mining samples are advanced through analytical processes without the need or manual labor. Additionally, automation systems process samples sequentially, which reduces the processing time and improves the quality of analysis. Moreover, automation solutions use robots that execute a repetitive labeling process which helps in eliminating operator errors and also reduces the cost of sample analysis.

One of the major trends that will gain traction in this market is the shift toward modular laboratory automation. Automation systems incorporate several devices such as centrifuges, decappers, specimen loaders, and unloaders and can either be used as stand-alone instruments or be grouped together to form work cells. Additionally, mining companies also have the advantage to incorporate modular automation in incremental steps, which will benefit several small- and medium-sized laboratories.
