Convenience and Consumer Awareness to Drive Frozen Fruits and Vegetables Market, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.











San Jose, California (PRWEB) February 22, 2012

Follow us on LinkedIn – The global market for frozen foods has managed to overcome recessionary woes driven by growing demand for convenient and faster-to-prepare foods, as consumers during such times exhibit reluctance to eat out and prefer eating at home. Moreover with the inflationary food prices eating into their pockets, consumers are increasingly shifting towards frozen food as a viable alternative to fresh and chilled products. Frozen fruit and vegetables segment, which was previously regarded as “dated” and “unhealthy”, showed robust growth in the wake of the recession. Producers’ campaigns towards re-educating consumers over the benefits and quality of the frozen products and publicizing the additional advantages with frozen foods such as presence of original nutritional values led to significant rise in uptake of the frozen fruits and vegetables. The frozen fruit and vegetables market stands to gain from the fast-paced modern lifestyle that has led consumers to look for easy and hygienic products that eliminate the conventional hassles of cleaning and chopping fresh fruits and vegetables thereby by evading the all important time-constraints of traditional cooking. Further, the advent of innovative products and packaging is also contributing to increased consumption of a wide variety of frozen foods.

As stated by the new market research report on Frozen Fruits and Vegetables, the US represents the largest regional market, while Asia, Latin America and Russia offer huge potential for future growth, given the relatively late adoption of frozen foods, and lower market penetration of such products in the regions. New markets such as China are rapidly growing, thereby extending fresh avenues for the world frozen food sector. The market for frozen foods in Europe is experiencing a mixed bag of growth with Germany, and Scandinavia reporting below average growth arising due to market saturation. However, other European countries such as France and Portugal are witnessing relatively faster growth. Among the frozen vegetables, frozen potatoes continue to experience strong demand owing to rapid expansion of fast food restaurants. The US, Canada, Netherlands and Belgium are the leading producers of frozen potatoes. Asia, South America, Eastern Europe, and Southern Europe offer lucrative prospects for frozen potatoes, with huge untapped market potential.

The key to effective utilization of long-term investments in frozen fruits and vegetables lies in the accuracy of marketing and branding mantras adopted to bring the acquired niche brands into the mainstream market.

Global Gaskets and Seals Market to Reach US$30 Billion by 2017, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.

Global Gaskets and Seals Market to Reach US$ 30 Billion by 2017, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.











San Jose, CA (PRWEB) February 22, 2012

Follow us on LinkedIn – As vital machine components, gasket and seals are widely utilized in diverse end-use applications ranging from automobiles, industry machinery (construction & related equipment, general purpose machinery, engines, turbines & power, HVAC & service equipment), to electrical & electronic equipment (instruments, computers, appliances, marine & rail, and aerospace), among others. Leading gasket & seals producing countries worldwide include Canada, Mexico, Japan, China and Germany. Continued and steady incremental technological improvements in mechanical strength, sealing capabilities will trigger demand among end-user industries for high performance and functional products. This demand for improved performance will continue to push manufacturers to stress on R&D to advance their product capabilities. Complex applications in defense and medical sectors will throw up manufacturing and design challenges that manufacturers will need to reckon with. The industry, over the past decade witnessed an unending string of mergers and acquisition with large conglomerates acquiring medium to small-scale players to enhance capacity expansions and complementary technologies.

Performance of key end-use industries, such as, automotive, oil & gas/process/refinery/, aerospace and defense in Europe, the United States and Japan, currently hangs in balance. The overshadowing concerns over the European debt crisis and the ensuing indiscriminate budgets cuts, Japan’s continued struggle with its deep-seated problems of high debt and deflation, and slow recovery of the US economy with its unretractable debt/deficit levels, have bifurcated market sentiments.

Amid conflicting news on the success of Europe’s band-aid strategy including the initial starving of the European markets of credit, and the subsequent reopening of global liquidity lines to bailout banks and spendthrift countries and calm the financial markets, market sentiments continue to swing between hope and concerns. While bearish market sentiments foresee an imminent slowdown in market prospects in these countries, guarded optimism prevails over the financial bailout strategies designed to restore market confidence. Germany’s relative resilience in handling the euro zone crisis is helping strengthen confidence levels. With mixed signals emanating from the unfolding drama surrounding the crisis of the euro, it still remains too early on to forecast the market’s reactive impact on demand for gasket and seals in the region. Bearish views on the market’s outlook in the immediate term, although currently not seen as likely, indicate that Europe’s debt woes can likely flatten the European automotive industry, while the oil and gas industry, which is already witnessing declines in oil demand and prices can soften demand for gasket and seals in the oil & gas/refinery industry in the region.

Unlike in Europe and North America, clearer market visibility in developing countries like China, India, Brazil which until now have no clear signs of the contagion from debt crisis spreading to developing countries, allows for unequivocal growth forecasts in these countries. These countries are therefore expected to feed the growth engine in the world market for gasket and seals, outpacing growth in US and Europe by a healthy margin. Steady economic growth, stricter environmental regulations and laws, stronger production activities across key end-use industries, large installed base of aging industrial machinery, undeterred pace of industrialization, mass exodus of automotive and industrial manufacturing activity to developing countries such as China and India, among others, remain truly powerful drivers capable of fuelling growth in the world market.

As stated by the new market research report on gaskets and seals, the US continues to remain the largest regional market. Asia-Pacific represents the fastest growing market projected to display a CAGR of 5.5% over the analysis period. Growth in the automotive end-use industry is forecast to average 3.7% over the same period. Manufacturers in the upcoming years will focus on increasing the use of high-quality raw materials for delivering products with superior functionality and longer life. Some of the materials that are fast gaining acceptance include urethane, TFM polytetrafluoroethylene, microcellular foams, and expandable graphite. These advanced raw materials offer enhanced performance and remain stable in harsh conditions. Non Metallic Gaskets is the fastest growing product market with Elastomeric gaskets manufactured using synthetic rubber or thermoplasic elastomers, in particular poised to witness the maximum growth. While the demand for rubber gaskets will be driven by growing acceptance of more advanced rubbers, such as epichlorohydrin, acrylics/ethylene, and fluoroelastomers, growth in thermoplastic elastomer gaskets market will be boosted by superior capabilities of advanced thermoplastic elastomers and other specialty compounds.

Major players in the marketplace include Blue Diamond Technologies Ltd., BRUSS, Dana Corporation, ElringKlinger AG, Federal-Mogul Corporation, Flowserve Corp., Greene, Tweed Company, Hutchinson SA, Parker Hannifin Corp., Reinz Dichtungs GmbH, SIEM Supranite SA, Saint Gobain Performance Plastics, SKF Group, Smiths Group Plc., Trelleborg Sealing Solutions, W.L. Gore & Associates Inc , Zone Reed Industries, among others.

The research report titled “Gaskets and Seals: A Global Strategic Business Report” announced by Global Industry Analysts, Inc., provides a comprehensive review of market trends, issues, drivers, company profiles, mergers, acquisitions and other strategic industry activities. Product segments analyzed include Gaskets (Non Metallic & Metallic), and Seals (Mechanical & Others). Key end-use segments analyzed include Automotive, Process/Refinery/Other General Machinery, Pulp & Paper, and Marine/Rail among Others. Market estimates and projections are presented for all major geographic markets including the United States, Canada, Japan, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East and Latin America.

Global Wind Energy Installed Capacity to Reach 1,062 Thousand Megawatts by 2017, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.

Global Wind Energy Installed Capacity to Reach 1,062 Thousand Megawatts by 2017, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.











San Jose, CA (PRWEB) March 02, 2012

Follow GIA on LinkedIn – Exploitation of renewable energy resources is being increasingly acknowledged worldwide in preparation to serve the higher and increasing energy needs in the 21st century. This is reflected in the rapid growth in the global wind turbine market during the five-year period preceding 2011. The market is expected to largely retain this pace of growth in the years ahead. Wind energy represents the fastest growing energy source among renewable resources worldwide. Significant demand exists for wind energy worldwide, with demand emerging from the developed as well as developing parts of the world. While developed countries in the West dominated the global market for wind energy hitherto, China edged past these markets to become the largest market worldwide in terms of total installed capacity in the year 2010. India and Brazil also offers tremendous prospects for the industry players, while demand is also expected to emerge from developed markets, such as the US.

Manufacturers of wind turbines, as much as those involved in the manufacture of solar panels, are facing the brunt of oversupply of raw materials and a fall in their prices. This is the major reason for Solyndra to go bankrupt. A similar situation is prevalent in the wind energy sector as well, where the global leader in wind turbine manufacture, Vestas Wind Systems, is embarking on a massive job and production cuts. Large scale decline in the prices of raw materials, and increasing competition from the Chinese manufacturers have forced the company to cut production and labor to become competitive. With economic recovery plans, initiated to bail out ailing industries in the wake of the global recession, gradually being phased out worldwide, the prospects for clean energy sector appear to be tough in 2011 and in the near term. With no huge support coming from the government, the industry is faced with a situation where it is required to be more cost-effective and competitive in the years ahead. Demand-wise, substantial potential exists from the developed as well as developing regions. This offers significant revenue potential for the industry in the years ahead, alongside increasing demand from developing countries. However, cost-effectiveness remains the key for the industry’s success in the years ahead.

Onshore technology, which entails the establishment of wind farms on the land, represents the largest segment in the global wind energy market. One of the key factors leading to the lower penetration of the offshore technology is that this technology is in its nascent stages. Despite of the significant success of this technology, the higher costs associated with installation, operation and maintenance of offshore turbines becomes a major hurdle for proliferation of this technology. In 2010, offshore wind turbine supply grew significantly over supply in 2009. In addition to the total capacity supply, the offshore segment also witnessed a moderate growth in the average size of turbine that reached 1,655 kW. The share of offshore turbines is likely to improve in the years as countries with long coastlines look to take advantage of this geographical advantage to establish offshore wind farms.

The global wind energy market has witnessed a spurt in long-term research activities/projects. The urgency of long-term research designed to complement product development has led governments to pump in significant resources as investments for research projects. To pragmatically achieve the slated “2020 target” of meeting 12% of the world’s electricity needs from the winds, extensive research and development into wind energy technology is imperative. Although the cost of wind energy has drastically declined over the past few years, a further reduction of 30% to 50% is required if wind energy is to compete on par with conventional energies. Appropriate funding and co-ordination of R&D activities could very well help in achieving a cost reduction of 40%. The International Energy Agency (IEA) has established a flexible framework for joint R&D projects, and technology transfer among member countries such as Australia, Austria, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Greece, Italy, Japan, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Spain, Sweden, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

Europe represents the largest market for wind energy worldwide, in terms of installed capacity, as stated by the new market research report on Wind Energy. Dominance of Europe in the wind energy market is driven by significant demand for wind energy from countries such as Germany, Spain, France and Italy. However, Europe is losing market share to Asia-Pacific, which is projected to emerge as the fastest growing regional market for wind energy worldwide. Asia-Pacific also leads in terms of fastest growth potential, and is projected to expand over the years at the highest CAGR of about 42.5% through 2017.

Key market participants profiled in the report include American Electric Power, AES Corporation, Cielo Wind Power, Dongfang Electric Corporation, Enel SpA, Enercon GmbH, Gamesa Corp., Green Mountain Energy Company, GE Energy, Goldwind, NextEra Energy Resources, Shell WindEnergy Inc., Sinovel Wind Group Co., Suzlon Energy Limited, TransAlta Wind, and Vestas Wind Systems A/S.

Global Toothpaste Market to Reach US$12.6 Billion by 2015, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.

Global Toothpaste Market to Reach US$ 12.6 Billion by 2015, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.












San Jose, California (Vocus) October 19, 2010

The global toothpaste market is on the threshold of a new phase with the advent of new biotechnologies that help curb problems of sensitivity and enable the re-growth of teeth. Oral care is undergoing significant changes with innovative and fresh products motivating people to alter their oral hygiene habits. This in turn is triggering major shift in dynamics, with a growing preference for toothpaste, evinced by its substantial share of over 55% in the oral care market. Purchase of toothpaste is mainly driven by individual habits, inclination towards particular flavor and familiarity with the product. The toothpaste market is generally not price sensitive and brand loyalty plays an important role in majority of the customers. Currently nearly 97% of the population in developed countries uses at least one variety of toothpaste. This gives marketers virtually no space to expand the market with new users. Consequently, adding or increasing value to the product is the preferred alternative. Technological progress made in recent years altered the toothpaste segment into one that offers additional benefits such as fresher breath, healthier gums and whiter teeth, besides just fighting cavities.

The global market for personal care products (including oral care) had its own share of negative impact from the global economic crisis that surfaced in the last quarter of 2008. The extent of the slowdown varied, based on product offerings of individual companies. Those skewed towards functional products including toothpastes, toothbrushes and other personal care products, weathered the recession much better than firms with specialty skin care products. The already mature market for oral care in the US experienced a slight decline in value sales while the category of toothpaste witnessed about 1%-2% decline in sales in 2008 & 2009. With finances becoming scarce in the times of economic downturn, households restricted their purchases and became more value conscious, leading to decrease in sales. Nevertheless, demand for certain value added products such as power/electric toothbrushes exhibited a rise in 2009 as consumers showed more interest in products that eased their oral hygiene schedule, despite high prices.

Europe, garnering the single largest global share, dominates the Toothpaste market, as stated by the new market research report. Asia-Pacific and US follow the lead as the next largest markets for toothpaste worldwide. Increase in toothpaste sales in Europe can be ascribed to the domestic industry’s success in segmenting the market to meet individual consumer requirements. In addition, government intervention and growth in Central and Eastern European countries such as Russia and Spain has also spearheaded Europe’s leadership ahead of other countries such as the US and Japan. In terms of growth, Asia-Pacific propelled by regions including Australia, China and India, is forecast to expand at the overall highest compounded rate for the period 2007-2015. The Whitening segment captures the largest share of the global toothpaste market, trailed by the Regular and Tartar Control segments. With respect to fastest growing product segment, the Multi-benefit market is slated to take the lead through 2015.

The global toothpaste market comprises of several large and medium international and domestic players competing fiercely in the highly crowded and fragmented marketplace. There is a large presence of both branded and private label companies. Major players seek to position their products on the basis of value addition, functionality, price premium and to a certain extent packaging. Leading market participants include Church & Dwight, Colgate-Palmolive Company, Colgate-Palmolive Gmbh, Colgate-Palmolive (India) Limited, Gaba Holding AG, GlaxoSmithKline, Henkel AG & Co. KgaA, Johnson and Johnson, Procter & Gamble Company, Unilever N.V., and Hindustan Unilever Limited.
