Biopolymers Market / Bioplastics Industry Forecasts to 2018

DALLAS, March 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --


ReportsnReports.com offers "Biopolymers/Bioplastics Market By Type (Bio PET, Bio PE, PLA, PHA, Bio PBS, Starch Blends, and Regenerated Cellulose), By Application (Packaging, Bottles, Fibers, Agriculture, Automotive, and Others), By Geography - Trends & Forecasts to 2018" research report in its store.

Biopolymers/Bioplastics Market By Type (Bio PET, Bio PE, PLA, PHA, Bio PBS, Starch Blends, and Regenerated Cellulose), By Application (Packaging, Bottles, Fibers, Agriculture, Automotive, and Others), By Geography - Trends & Forecasts to 2018 research report (http://www.reportsnreports.com/reports/278243-biopolymers-bioplastics-market-by-type-bio-pet-bio-pe-pla-pha-bio-pbs-starch-blends-and-regenerated-cellulose-by-application-packaging-bottles-fibers-agriculture-automotive-and-others-by-geography-trends-forecasts-to-2018.html )  says North America is the biggest market for biopolymers, consuming more than one-third of the total global demand for biopolymers. There is a lot of scope in the Asia-Pacific market due to strong and increasing manufacturing and industrial base, which are the major end consumers of biopolymers. Additionally, increasing need in Europe for high performance material for fibers and injection molding is pushing the demand for PLA at a considerable pace. With the emerging technological developments and innovations in Europe, the demand growth for biopolymers may further augment at a high pace.

Currently, the penetration of biopolymers is increasing in packaging, bottles, and automotive at a very high pace around the globe. The key drivers for increasing demand of biopolymers in all the sectors are biodegradability of these materials, and positive attitude of government towards green procurement policies. On the other hand, increasing scope in end user segment and under penetration in Asian countries are the major upcoming opportunities in the market, and technological developments, and innovations are identified as key strategies to capitalize on these opportunities.

This biopolymers market research report estimates the global demand for biopolymers and market value for 2012 and projects the expected demand and market value of the same by 2018. As a part of quantitative analysis, the study segments the global market by type, application and geography with current market estimation and forecast till 2018. The countries covered in the report are China, Japan, U.S., Italy, Germany, and France. The segmentation by type includes bio-PET, bio-PE, PLA, PHA, bio-PBS, starch blends, and regenerated cellulose; while on the basis of its application the segmentation includes packaging, bottles, fibers, agriculture, automotive, injection molding and others.

Further as a part of qualitative analysis, the research provides report with a comprehensive review of major market drivers, restraints, opportunities, winning imperatives, and key issues in the market. It also includes the company profiling and competitive strategies adopted by various market players.

The idea of comparing data in motion (at the sensor level) to data at rest (in a Big Data server warehouse) with predictive analytics in the cloud is very appealing to the industrial IoT sector. The problem Big Data vendors have, however, is access to that data in motion at the sensor location. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Scott Allen, CMO of FreeWave, discussed how as IoT is increasingly adopted by industrial markets, there is going to be an increased demand for sensor data from the outermos...

IoT is rapidly changing the way enterprises are using data to improve business decision-making. In order to derive business value, organizations must unlock insights from the data gathered and then act on these. In their session at @ThingsExpo, Eric Hoffman, Vice President at EastBanc Technologies, and Peter Shashkin, Head of Development Department at EastBanc Technologies, discussed how one organization leveraged IoT, cloud technology and data analysis to improve customer experiences and effi...
There are several IoTs: the Industrial Internet, Consumer Wearables, Wearables and Healthcare, Supply Chains, and the movement toward Smart Grids, Cities, Regions, and Nations. There are competing communications standards every step of the way, a bewildering array of sensors and devices, and an entire world of competing data analytics platforms. To some this appears to be chaos. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Bradley Holt, Developer Advocate a...
In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, wh...
The cloud market growth today is largely in public clouds. While there is a lot of spend in IT departments in virtualization, these aren’t yet translating into a true “cloud” experience within the enterprise.
