Key Features and Benefits

The report provides detailed analysis of the market for cyber security during 2013-2023, including the factors that influence the reasons countries are investing or cutting defense expenditure. It provides detailed expectations of growth rates and projected total expenditure.

Historically, most of the expenditure in this sector is generated by the private sector, yet government spending has witnessed a robust increase in the recent past; the US’s private and public sector spending is almost the same, pegged at US$ 94 billion over the next 10 years. The UK has also made cyber security a tier one priority by allocating an additional US$ 800 million for various cyber security initiatives in its 2010 strategic defense and security review (SDSR); the government is expected to spend close to US$ 6 billion on cyber security over the next 10 years. Similarly countries in the Middle East, Asia Pacific and Latin America are also expected to ramp up spending on cyber security during the forecast period.

Key Market Issues

It is very important for cyber security providers to identify the source of malware so that similar patterns can be tracked and observed for flaws, and a proper response to the attack can be delivered without causing undue inconvenience to the entire cyberspace community. This challenge stems from the fact that the cyber security institutional eco-system which consists of a broad set of international, national, and private organizations has unclear and overlapping boundaries.

Cyber weapons are in their infancy and are expected to rapidly evolve over the next decade. Therefore, nations are currently dedicating increasing resources at the executive policy level as well as at the private sector level, in order to deal with complex cyber threats. These resources have been well utilized as is evident from the innovations in cyber defense technologies, but as these mechanisms become commercially available and their mode of operation is scrutinized, attackers will develop more advanced cyber weapon technologies to deal with advanced defenses.

Key Highlights

At the cyber-security world summit held in 2010, security experts raised credible issues such as crashing power grids, stalled air control towers, hospital infrastructure being rendered useless, and national defenses being susceptible to outside attack. New technologies such as cloud computing, social networking, and the proliferation of mobile devices have also resulted in an increase of cyber attacks. The governments of the UK, the US, France, Belgium, Germany, and India have stated that their systems and networks were infiltrated by criminal networks. Such incidents are expected to augment a sustainable demand for cyber security over the forecast period

The militaries of most countries have always enjoyed a certain degree of autonomy, but they are not immune from the economic uncertainties that face governments. With budget cuts being implemented, many countries are looking to channel their resources towards certain areas of military spending. For example the US is looking to phase out tanks and other major weapons programs and divert its spending towards IT and cyber security programs.

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











ResearchMOZ


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.

Air Freshener Manufacturing Industry Report Now Available from IBISWorld

Air Freshener Manufacturing Industry Report Now Available from IBISWorld











IBISWorld Market Research


(PRWEB) December 29, 2011

A new report from IBISWorld forecasts that the Air Freshener Manufacturing industry will continue to experience growth over the five years to 2016. Continued economic improvements will likely boost overall consumer spending, which will encourage consumers to increase their spending on discretionary home goods like air fresheners. For this reason, industry research firm IBISWorld has added a report on the Air Freshener Manufacturing industry to its growing Houseware Manufacturing Report collection.

For more information, including latest Industry trends, statistics, analysis and market share information, purchase the full report from IBISWorld, the nation’s largest publisher of industry research on the Air Freshener Manufacturing Industry for $ 850.

Air Freshener Manufacturing Industry Overview

The Air Freshener Manufacturing industry has stayed fresh during the past five years, despite changes in consumer spending and economic conditions. Like many producers of discretionary household goods, demand for industry goods hiked when disposable income and consumer sentiment was high in 2006 and 2007. However, the economic recession led to a decline of consumer spending, especially on discretionary products, which caused industry revenue growth to slow in 2008 and decline in 2009. When the economy began to recover, consumers once again purchased air fresheners to improve the smell of their homes. From 2006 to 2011, revenue is expected to have increased. In 2011 alone, revenue has expanded, as consumer sentiment increases and consumers are willing to spend on little luxuries.

According to IBISWorld analyst, Mary Gotaas, in addition to changing consumer spending and a volatile economy, “the Air Freshener Manufacturing industry has weathered intense internal competition among players and changes in consumer preferences,’ says Gotaas. In response, small and large companies have diversified their product lines and introduced goods to cater to consumer preferences. For instance, more companies are offering natural and organic air fresheners in response to many Americans becoming more environmentally conscious.

From 2011 to 2016, revenue is projected to grow. Companies will continue to face intense competition from other industry operators and will improve products to meet new consumer trends. With consumer sentiment and disposable income anticipated to rise in the next five years, revenue is set to increase. Also, the industry will likely consolidate. Existing firms are expected to merge to expand product lines or take advantage of new technology innovations. Company numbers are anticipated to decrease in 2016. Nevertheless, this decline will be slightly offset by small companies entering the industry due to low barriers of entry and the ability to sell products over the internet.

Nuclear Power Plant Construction Market Research Report Now Available from IBISWorld

Nuclear Power Plant Construction Market Research Report Now Available from IBISWorld











IBISWorld Market Research


Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) October 27, 2011

The Nuclear Power Plant Construction industry will continue to grow over the next five years, albeit at a slower rate than the previous five years, according to a new report from IBISWorld, the nation’s largest publisher of industry research. Revenue is anticipated to expand 4.1% per year to $ 5.3 billion in the five years to 2016. Firms will increasingly focus their efforts on design and construction abroad, limiting revenue growth over the same period.

According to IBISWorld analyst, Justin Molavi, the Nuclear Power Plant Construction industry has grown during the past five years, with revenue expected to increase by 7.4% per year on average to $ 4.4 billion in the five years to 2011. “A rise in power uprates has underpinned this trend, as nuclear generators create more electricity and require more maintenance,” says Molavi. In doing so, industry players such as Westinghouse, The Shaw Group Inc. and Babcock & Wilcox have turned to maintenance work in the United States, since the last domestic nuclear facility was designed and constructed in 1996. The Japanese tsunami of 2011 also bumped industry revenue higher as heightened safety concerns prompted nuclear generators to expand their maintenance budgets. “Revenue is expected to jump 10.3% from 2010 to 2011 amid high maintenance demand following the tsunami,” says Molavi.

While a new reactor is expected to be built in the United States for the first time in more than a decade (i.e. the Watts Bar Unit 2 that is anticipated in 2012), most nuclear design and construction demand takes place abroad. Heavy regulatory hurdles have hampered the design and construction of new plants in the United States amid high terrorism concerns and perceived environmental issues. In turn, industry players concentrated their efforts on China and Europe, where the high rate of construction of nuclear facilities (in comparison to the low new nuclear construction rate in the United States) has provided a healthy source of revenue and opportunity.

The next five years will not be as favorable for the Nuclear Power Plant Construction industry as the past five years have been. Demand for design and construction services will likely slow down following the anticipated completion of the newest nuclear facility and the lack of new facilities planned over the next five years. Additionally, firms will continue to focus abroad for business as China and Europe continue building nuclear reactors at high rates. Despite this factor, industry players will still experience higher demand for nuclear facility maintenance as the industry’s customers continue to use uprates to expand capacity amid high regulatory hurdles for new reactor construction. As a result, industry revenue is projected to slow to 4.1% average growth per year to $ 5.3 billion in the five years to 2016.

Q&A: Is one of the problems with cap & trade is that they really don’t have alternatives available?

Question by Warren T: Is one of the problems with cap & trade is that they really don’t have alternatives available?
What is Cap and Trade?
The goal: To steadily reduce carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions economy-wide in a cost-effective manner.

The cap: Each large-scale emitter, or company, will have a limit on the amount of greenhouse gas that it can emit. The firm must have an “emissions permit” for every ton of carbon dioxide it releases into the atmosphere. These permits set an enforceable limit, or cap, on the amount of greenhouse gas pollution that the company is allowed to emit. Over time, the limits become stricter, allowing less and less pollution, until the ultimate reduction goal is met. This is similar to the cap and trade program enacted by the Clean Air Act of 1990, which reduced the sulfur emissions that cause acid rain, and it met the goals at a much lower cost than industry or government predicted.

The trade: It will be relatively cheaper or easier for some companies to reduce their emissions below their required limit than others. These more efficient companies, who emit less than their allowance, can sell their extra permits to companies that are not able to make reductions as easily. This creates a system that guarantees a set level of overall reductions, while rewarding the most efficient companies and ensuring that the cap can be met at the lowest possible cost to the economy.

The profits: If the federal government auctions the emissions permits to the companies required to reduce their emissions, it would create a large and dependable revenue stream. These financial resources could be used to achieve critical public policy objectives related to climate change mitigation and economic development. The federal government can also choose to “grandfather” allowances to the polluting firms by handing them out free based on historic or projected emissions. This would give the most benefits to those companies with higher baseline emissions that have historically done the least to reduce their pollution.

What Would a Successful Cap-and-Trade Program Look Like?
The goal: To limit the rise in global temperature to approximately 2.0 degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit) above pre-industrial levels by 2050 by reducing carbon dioxide and other emissions from companies as part of a larger plan for curbing global warming.

The cap: To achieve this goal, the U.S. government should steadily tighten the cap until emissions are reduced to 80 percent below 1990 levels by 2050. Businesses would have to obtain permits entitling them to emit a certain quantity of carbon dioxide or its equivalent in other greenhouse gases. All permits would be auctioned off by the government. Emissions permits in the near term would likely fall in the range of $ 10 to $ 15 per metric ton of carbon dioxide or its equivalent.

The trade: Companies unable to meet their emissions quotas could purchase allowances from other companies that have acquired more permits than they need to account for their emissions. The cost of buying and selling these credits would be determined by the marketplace, which over time would reduce the cost of trading the credits as trading becomes more widespread and efficient.

The profits: Initial estimates by the Congressional Budget Office project that an economy-wide cap-and-trade program would generate at least $ 50 billion per year, but could reach up to $ 300 billion. Approximately 10 percent of this revenue should be allocated to help offset costs to businesses and shareholders of affected industries. Of the remaining revenue, approximately half should be devoted to help offset any energy price increases for low- and middle-income Americans that may occur as a result of the transition to more efficient energy sources. The other half of the remaining revenue should be used to invest in renewable energy, efficiency, low-carbon transportation technologies, green-collar job training, and the transition to a low-carbon economy. Some resources should also be invested in the energy, environment, and infrastructure sectors in developing nations to alleviate energy poverty with low-carbon energy systems and help these nations adapt to the inevitable effects of global warming. Revenues from the permit auction would essentially be “recycled” back into the economy to facilitate the transition to an efficient, low-carbon energy economy and ensure that consumers are not unduly burdened by potentially higher energy costs.

Now here is the problem: Coal which is the worst polluter provides about 1/2 of our electricity which means those power plants either have to convert to some other power source or buy carbon credits which of course they will pass the cost onto the consumer. Solar & wind power which is the cleanest only provides about 5% of our power and is a decade or more away from being a major provider. Nuclear energy which is about the only source of power available that can readily replace coal, oil & natural gas the liberals don’t want anything to do with. Natural gas is the cleane

That “they really don’t have alternatives available” is just ONE of the problems.

Being based on “junk science” is another.

Inability to actually measure the effectiveness of “cap & trade” is another (and there are other problems as well).

Audio Profiles of Returned Peace Corps Entrepreneurs Now Available Online



Washington, DC (PRWEB) May 10, 2007

Social Edge and the National Peace Corps Association (NPCA) have collaborated to produce a weekly series of downloadable audio interviews in which former Peace Corps volunteers tell about their lives as social entrepreneurs.

The downloadable audio profiles, along with background information on each entrepreneur, are available at http://www.socialedge.org/features/peace-corps-entrepreneurs. The free podcasts are also available on iTunes at http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewPodcast?id=251763752.

“These are amazing and inspirational stories of how individuals use the Peace Corps experience to develop the skills, habits and aptitude to be effective agents for positive social change,” says NPCA President Kevin Quigley. “These Peace Corps entrepreneurs exemplify what our community is fundamentally about–innovation leading to change that makes a difference.”

The audio interviews average around ten minutes running time.

Recently interviewed:


Melanie Edwards, Peace Corps volunteer in Togo (1985-87). Melanie is CEO of social venture MobileMetrix. She worked for J.P. Morgan, International Data Group (IDG), and previously launched the Global Technology Corps (a “digital Peace Corps”) and the United Nations Information Technology Service (UNITeS).

Florence Reed, Peace Corps volunteer in Panama (1991-93). Florence was the Latin America Program Coordinator for Trees for the Future before founding Sustainable Harvest International, where she helps subsistence farmers in Central America shift from slash-and-burn agriculture to sustainable farming.

Ken Lehman, Peace Corps volunteer in Guatemala (1966-68). Ken worked with the national staff of the Corps in Washington until 1971. He is now chairman of Winning Workplaces, a not-for-profit helping organizations become great places to work, and managing partner of KKP Group.

Jessica Shortall, Peace Corps volunteer in Uzbekistan (2000-01). Jessica is the Founder of Catalyst Strategy Advisors in London, where she advises businesses on how to operate for the social good while making a profit. She previously founded The Campus Kitchens Project in the United States.

Social Edge, a program of the Skoll Foundation, is a global online community where tens of thousands of social entrepreneurs and other practitioners in the social benefit sector connect to network, learn, inspire and share best practices. Social Edge targets social entrepreneurs with limited access to other local resources due to the nature of their work or their location (developing countries or rural areas). Social Edge was intrigued to explore the thread of social entrepreneurship that is woven through generations of former Peace Corps volunteers.

“They’re not well known, but they are having a huge impact,” says Victor d’Allant, Executive Director of Social Edge. “Those stories need to be told, and they are being told on Social Edge right now. These returned Peace Corps volunteers can be models for how one individual can make a significant contribution to society. They are true heroes.”

NPCA has a strong commitment to highlighting the lifelong value of Peace Corps service and the ongoing contributions of our community. Since the Peace Corps was founded 46 years ago, over 187,000 Americans have served as volunteers in 139 countries. For many, the Peace Corps experience has been the catalyst for lives spent accepting challenges, taking risks and embracing change in their careers and in their communities. NPCA welcomed the opportunity to introduce these stories to a wider audience.
