Overview of the global turbine inlet cooling systems market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global turbine inlet cooling systems market to grow steadily at a CAGR of around 4% by 2021. One of the primary drivers for this market is the reduction in the number of coal-based power plants.  Owing to the increase in concerns about environmental protection and the goal of clean power has been the main reasons for the closing of power plants in several countries across the globe. Also, in several countries, the consumption of natural gas as a fuel, instead of coal, for power generation is on the rise. For instance, in the UK, the major contribution to power generation is from natural gas instead of coal. This shift towards natural gas has significantly reduced the consumption of coal across the globe. Another reason for the decrease in demand for coal is the shutdown of many coal power plants with respect to environmental concerns. This reduction in the number of coal-based power plants will ensure the construction of new gas-fired power plants, which in turn will increase the demand for gas turbines and further drive the turbine inlet cooling systems market during the forecast period.

One of the latest trends gaining traction in this market is the rise in distributed power generation. Power generation is undergoing a transformation from centralized systems to integrated networks. This is due to the growing reliance on distributed power generation systems. Distributed power technologies are characterized by high flexibility, and are suited for a wide range of applications such as electric power, propulsion, and mechanical power. Distributed power technologies can operate in a standalone mode as well as work in an integrated

Overview of the beverage packaging machinery market

According to the market research analysts at Technavio, the global beverage packaging machinery market will witness impressive growth and will post a CAGR of close to 7% during the forecast period. The expansion of the brewing industry is one of the significant factors propelling the growth prospects for the beverage packaging machinery market. The easy availability of low-cost skilled labor in countries like China and Mexico has facilitated the bulk production of beer in the world. The US and Brazil are also some of the leading beer producing countries in the world. Some of the primary factors driving the demand for beer in APAC include rapid economic development, changes in consumer spending, and a sharp rise in disposable incomes. On the other hand, India is a hard liquor market and an estimated 40% of the total whiskey consumption in APAC occurred in India during 2015. Besides, over the past few years, there has been a surge in the number of microbreweries in major urban cities in India, which is expected to boost the consumption of beer in the APAC region. With the increase in the consumption and production of beer in APAC, the demand for beverage packaging machinery should increase in the coming years.

The augmented use of robotic packaging machinery is one of the latest trends gaining significant traction in the market. Fully automated robotic packaging machinery provides flexibility with regards to throughput in volume and consistency. The majority of robotic machines are equipped with advanced monitoring and control capabilities to maintain packaging lines and reduce energy consumption. Moreover, technologically advanced machinery uses real-time data collected from different machines to opimize output. Also, robotic packaging machinery

Global outlook of the surveying equipment market

Technavio’s market research analysts predict the global surveying equipment market to grow steadily during the forecast period and post a CAGR of about 6% by 2021. This industry research report identifies the rapid urbanization in emerging economies to be one of the major factors that will have a positive impact on the growth of the surveying instruments market in the coming years. With the increasing urban population across the world, the coming years will witness huge social, economic, and environmental transformations especially in the countries in Africa and Asia. It has been observed that though the people in these countries mostly live in rural areas, there will witness a considerable increase in urban populations in the next few years. This increased urbanization will consequently boost the demand for energy resources, transportations, and residential facilities and will in turn, augment the growth prospects of the surveying equipment market.

Since several activities revenue generating activities such as the transportation of goods, oil drilling, resource extraction, and fish cultivation take place in the coastal areas, the coastlines are highly populated in many countries such as the US. However, the changing climate conditions, severely affect the coastal areas and are also becoming more acidic due to the rising CO2 levels in the atmosphere, in turn, impacting marine life and resulting in shoreline erosion, coastal flooding, and water pollution. This will increase the need for new approaches to coastal area management, subsequently driving the need for surveying tools and equipment.
