Electric Bicycle Industry: China Market Trends, Size, Share and Forecast Report 2012-2015 Available at ResearchMoz.us

Electric Bicycle Industry: China Market Trends, Size, Share and Forecast Report 2012-2015 Available at ResearchMoz.us


Albany, NY (PRWEB) May 11, 2013

Researchmoz presents this most up-to-date research on China Electric Bicycle Industry Report, 2012-2015. The report focuses primarily on quantitative market metrics in order to characterize the growth and evolution of the China Electric Bicycle Industry.

Chinese electric bicycle manufacturers went through a painful ordeal in 2011. The circular for rectifying the electric bicycle industry issued by the Ministry of Public Security, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the State Administration for Industry and Commerce, and General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine, the rising price of raw materials like lead-acid batteries and the slowly growing demand because of market saturation depressed the electric bicycle industry (http://www.researchmoz.us/china-electric-bicycle-industry-report-2012-2015-report.html) into low-speed development from a boom in 2010. The output of electric bicycles increased by only 4.8% YoY to 30.96 million units in 2011, with the growth rate slipping by 28 percentage points over 2010. The slow growth looks to continue into 2012.

Amid the overall industry downturn, the strong get stronger and the weak fade away, with the acceleration of industry consolidation. The leaders like Yadea, AIMA and Xinri have started to further expand the market share by virtue of their edges in capital, technology, production scale and brand influence, while a large number of small-sized firms see the squeezed market space and plummeting market share and may face merger or bankruptcy. As a whole, the industry also embraces golden opportunity for development, though the majority of enterprises encounter a crisis. Firstly, the quality of such components as battery and motor needs to be improved, and the energy-saving and environment-friendly features of Chinese electric bicycle products wait to be enhanced. Once these problems are addressed, the enterprises will rid themselves of the intense homogeneous competition, enhance their product profitability and effectively explore the international market; secondly, the uncertainty of domestic industrial policy and the imperfect management system hamper the industry development. As the State improves the management mechanism of electric bicycle and issues new standards for product quality, the Chinese electric bicycle industry will enjoy huge development space.

Along with the increasingly fierce competition, some manufacturers like Xinri and Aima began to tap into central market instead of focusing on the Yangtze River Delta and Bohai Economic Rim to seize the initiative. They tend to establish production bases closer to the consumer market, and Shangqiu, Henan and Xiangyang, Hubei are expected to become new manufacturing bases of electric bicycle.

The report not only introduces the electric bicycle industry in China, Europe, the United States and Japan, but also highlights the electric bicycle business of 28 domestic manufacturers including Jiangsu Yadea, Jiangsu Xinri, AIMA Hi-tech, Shanghai Lima and Shandong Bidewen, etc.

Jiangsu Yadea, a famous electric bicycle producer in China, tops the ranking of China National Light Industry Council (CNLIC) electric bicycle industry for three consecutive years. Headquartered in Wuxi, Jiangsu, the company now owns four production bases in Wuxi, Cixi, Tianjin and Dongguan, and boasts an annual capacity of nearly 6 million electric bicycles.

Jiangsu Xinri is one of the leading electric bicycle producers and has rapidly expanded its capacity in the past two years. Its production base, which is located in Xiangyang, Hubei and boasts an annual capacity of 2 million electric bicycles, was officially put into operation in June 2011. Later in June 2012, its electric bicycle project with one-million capacity went into operation in Wuxi, when its total capacity amounted to 6 million electric bicycles per year.

AIMA Hi-tech is another leader in Chinese electric bicycle industry. It has built up new bases in Dongguan and Shangqiu in the recent two years, with both its capacity and sales volume rapidly expanding. In 2011, its electric bicycle led the industry in terms of sales volume which reached 2.6 million.

DITP Introduces new plans for pushing forward the ?Thai Kitchen to the World? Policy to Support Thai Food Market Expansion at ?THAIFEX ? 2013?,

DITP Introduces new plans for pushing forward the ‘Thai Kitchen to the World’ Policy to Support Thai Food Market Expansion at ‘THAIFEX – 2013’,

THAIFEX 2013 Logo

(PRWEB) May 07, 2013

Responding with gusto to the ongoing ‘Thai Kitchen to the World’ policy, the Department of International Trade Promotion (DITP) in collaboration with the Thai Chamber of Commerce and Koelnmesse are now well-prepared for the launch of THAIFEX – World of food ASIA 2013, the mega Asian food exhibition that is highly anticipated by global buyers and importers. Packed with potential, this exhibition is envisaged to be an ideal stage for showcasing a fascinating range of food and beverage products as well as related technologies and services. The market for Thai food exports in 2013 is targeted to expand with an increase of 10%.

Mr. Suwipan Thisyamondol, Deputy Director General of the DITP, stated that, “The Ministry of Commerce has implemented a strategy to promote and develop Thai food exports in line with the “Thai Kitchen to the World” policy. This is to promote the country’s image as well as to pump up the competitive advantage potential of Thai commodities including agricultural products, food & beverages and catering businesses, both in Thailand and overseas. In response to this strategy, the DITP has pressed on with a proactive export plan to promote the market expansion of Thai food products via multiple approaches. Such approaches include conducting programs to enhance the qualities of both goods and operator efficiencies, searching for new channels for trading and exporting frozen food to European and Asian markets, accompanying trade delegations for business negotiations abroad, and awarding the ‘Thai Select’ logo to certified Thai restaurateurs and products.”

Jointly organized by the three celebrated organizations under the theme “Savor the Best in Asia”, the fast-approaching THAIFEX – World of food Asia 2013 is scheduled to run from this May 22nd to 26th at Challenger 1 – 3, IMPACT Muang Thong Thani. The event aims to be an inviting stage to showcase the production potential of food & beverage products together with related technologies and services which will pave the way further towards international arenas. This 5-day exhibition will focus on the originality and the quality as well as the safety and health properties of participating products. Such an endeavor is recognized as a major strategy to bolster the food product exports of Thailand while driving the Thai Kitchen to the world policy to achieve the set goals.

“Overall exports of Thailand this year have food products as the main export category, with the first three months (Jan. – Mar. 2013) export value totaling 4,408 USD. Currently, the Ministry of Commerce has cooperated with multiple agencies to formulate plans to boost trade and expand Thai food markets on an ongoing basis. We are confident that the organization of THAIFEX – 2013 will mark a proactive step which promises new markets of great potential, while catalyzing Thai food exports to grow by 10% as targeted,” added Khun Suwipan.

Again, this astounding event will be pulsating with a variety of activities that emphasize its being an exceptional arena for exhibiting and selling a comprehensive range of high-quality products and innovations from the food industry.

These comprise food & beverage goods, food producing technologies, together with retail and franchise businesses, and those related from the service industry. This year’s THAIFEX will host at least 3,100 booths from more than 1,100 leading companies. Exhibitors partaking in the event are from, among many others, the Republic of China, Vietnam, the Philippines, Italy, Japan, Taiwan, Malaysia, Singapore, Korea, Brunei, Brazil and Turkey. THAIFEX 2013 is therefore an absolutely must-visit venue where operators in the food industry, both domestic and abroad, can create trade opportunities and meet with potential buyers worldwide.

On top of that, a slew of interesting and insightful exhibitions and activities await to impress visitors, such as the Halal food exhibition showcasing high-standard Thai Halal products, which will build confidence among buyers, importers and consumers, and the Eco and Innovative: Treat the World with Sustainability exhibition which encompasses groundbreaking or eco-friendly products by Thai exporters and other exhibitors. Joining the list are the Fairtrade certified products exhibition, activities to promote Thai-labeled foods, franchises and restaurants, the Thailand Ultimate Chef Challenge 2013 competition, and seminars on topics such as Import Control on Food of Plant and World of Food Safety.

Trade days: May 22nd – 24th, 2013, from 10.00 – 18.00 Hrs. Retail Days: May 25th – 26th, 2013, from 10.00 – 20.00 Hrs. More details about the THAIFEX – World of food Asia 2013 are available via http://www.ditp.go.th and http://www.thaitradefair.com.

Intactivists Call on Obstetricians Meeting in New Orleans to Stop Circumcising Baby Boys

Intactivists Call on Obstetricians Meeting in New Orleans to Stop Circumcising Baby Boys

Thousands of obstetricians will be confronted by this mobile billboard as they travel to New Orleans for their annual convention.

Tarrytown, NY (PRWEB) May 02, 2013

Intactivists are gathering in New Orleans this weekend to call upon members of the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) to join the global medical community’s movement away from neonatal male circumcision.

Intact America, the organization leading the demonstration and an 11 AM press conference on Saturday, May 4, placed an advertisement in the New Orleans Times-Picayune and hired a mobile billboard, urging those who see it to “Tell America’s Obstetricians – No More Circumcision.” The sign includes the message “His Body, His Rights” to underscore the organization’s human rights concerns. Approximately 70 Intactivists are expected to participate in the demonstration, displaying banners, carrying placards, and handing out literature.

Georganne Chapin, founding executive director of Intact America, the country’s leading voice against neonatal male circumcision, said, “The leaders of ACOG apparently do not think their members – who, according to estimates, perform at least half of the one million circumcisions in the United States on unconsenting baby boys each year – should hear the arguments that have led medical authorities across the developed world to reject the surgery as unnecessary, inherently risky, and a violation of baby boys’ right to an intact body.”

Chapin commented that ACOG rejected her group’s request to rent space for an educational booth in the convention’s exhibition hall. ACOG’s rejection came in a February 21, 2013 email in which the group said male circumcision “is only indirectly related to women’s health and of only casual interest to members of ACOG.” Consequently, Intact America decided to communicate with ACOG using protesters.

“It is both sad and disingenuous that ACOG claims circumcision is of no interest to the very doctors who perform the surgery hundreds of thousands of times each year,” Chapin said. “It is also not surprising they have embraced the widely-discredited “Circumcision Policy Statement” issued August 27, 2012 by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), which lauded the benefits of circumcising infants, while admitting that evidence for such benefits is lacking, acknowledging that the risks have never been adequately studied, and ignoring the ethical problems inherent in permanently removing normal genital tissue from individuals who cannot consent.” Chapin noted further that the report advocates for insurance companies and Medicaid to pay for circumcisions.

The AAP’s 2012 pro-circumcision report, released last summer and endorsed by ACOG the same day, recently came under sharp criticism from a group of 40 international pediatricians, urologists and medical ethicists, whose article (published in the AAP’s own journal, Pediatrics), claimed the AAP task force was biased in favor of circumcision before its members even began their deliberations. The article’s authors, all Europeans except for one Canadian, said the purported health benefits cited by the AAP could be achieved by far less drastic measures than the removal of healthy, functioning tissue from the genitals of baby boys.

The physicians’ critical view of circumcision position is identical to that of Intact America. “There is growing consensus… that physicians should discourage parents from circumcising their healthy infant boys,” the physicians say, “because non-therapeutic circumcision of underage boys in Western societies has no compelling health benefits, causes postoperative pain, can have serious long-term consequences, constitutes a violation of the United Nations’ Declaration of the Rights of the Child, and conflicts with the Hippocratic oath: primum non nocere: First, do no harm.”

“Intact America’s intent for this demonstration in New Orleans,” said Chapin, “is to make sure ACOG hears and understands the ethical quagmire they have put themselves into.”

Press invitation: Women in the World Economy Forum – Women as entrepreneurs

(PRWEB UK) 26 April 2013


Inaugural theme: Women as Entrepreneurs

20-21 May, 2013

You are invited to join the inaugural Women’s Forum at Sa?d Business School, University of Oxford on the theme of Women as Entrepreneurs.

Research indicates that stimulating entrepreneurship among women is necessary for continued innovation, and to combat poverty and contribute to global economic growth.

This Forum will address issues of employment, investment, consumption, and philanthropy, and explore the requirements for building a business environment conducive to successful women’s enterprises in countries around the world.

In order to guide future efforts by companies, governments, and entrepreneurs, the Forum will focus on identifying important gaps in knowledge about the motivations and obstacles surrounding women’s entrepreneurship. The discussion will focus on true challenges to unearth important underlying constraints, to identify genuinely successful programmes, rather than operate under conventional assumptions.

An invited international group of policy makers, corporate leaders, academics, and entrepreneurs will convene for the purpose of outlining a global action plan for governments, NGOs, and companies that want to support women’s entrepreneurship around the world.

Keynote speakers include:

    Cherie Blair, CBE. Founder of the Cherie Blair Foundation for Women which is doing clear-eyed, far-reaching work on training entrepreneurs in developing countries
    Wu Qing, Founder, Beijing Cultural Development Center for Rural Women, a tireless activist for women’s rights
    Muna AbuSulayman, the first Saudi UN Goodwill Ambassador, the first Saudi woman to become a media personality and an entrepreneur with her own fashion line.

Professor Peter Tufano, Dean of Sa?d Business School said: “Women’s entrepreneurship is a force for change that few of us as yet fully appreciate. Creating an environment in which women bring fresh ideas to new businesses will be key to growth everywhere in the world, during the 21st century.”

A number of the sessions are open to press.

Monday 20th May 14:00:    Keynote speech: Opening Opportunities for Women and Girls in RuralChina

                                         Wu Qing, Founder, Beijing Cultural Development Center for Rural Women.
