Building & construction plastics are organic polymers of higher molecular mass often containing additives. The plastics are preferred in building & construction as it is light weight and energy efficient. In addition, plastics have several characteristics such as scratch resistance, durability, design freedom and flexibility.The plastics used in the building & construction have lower maintenance and range of waste management options. The building & construction plastics are classified as PVC, PS, acrylics, PU, TPE, composite materials and others (PET, PP, PE, etc.).

PVC is the most used plastic in the building& construction industry.PVC finds applications in pipes & ducts, windows & door profiles and roofing. Composite materials are second largest market for building& construction plastics and are used in concrete reinforcement and bathroom accessories among others. Acrylics and TPE are expected to grow in the near future due to increasing demand from the construction industry with flexible design.Other types of plastics finds applications in roofing, cladding and insulation.

Building & construction plastics are used in the infrastructure industry in major applications such as pipes & ducts, insulation, door fittings and others. The other significant applications of building & construction plastics include cladding, floor and wall insulation,water proofing, concrete reinforcement and windows & door profiles. In addition, there is a huge demand of plastics from building & construction industry. The demand has increased due to various applications in flexible architectural designs and renovation of old buildings.

The global building and construction market is growing owing to the continuously increasing population and changing lifestyles, especially in emerging economies such as India, China and Brazil.Growth in the building& construction sector coupled with urbanization in BRIC countries has been driving the global building and construction plastics market in the past few years.However, the price impact of upstream raw materials such as crude oil and feed stock is anticipated to hamper the growth of the building & construction plastics market.Increasing application scope of building& construction plastics in the green building market coupled with rising demand for bio-based plastics are expected to open opportunities for the growth of the market over the coming years.

With billions of sensors deployed worldwide, the amount of machine-generated data will soon exceed what our networks can handle. But consumers and businesses will expect seamless experiences and real-time responsiveness. What does this mean for IoT devices and the infrastructure that supports them? More of the data will need to be handled at - or closer to - the devices themselves.
When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sudarshan Krishnamurthi, a Senior Manager, Business Strategy, at Cisco Systems, will discuss how IT and operational technology (OT) work together, as opposed to being in separate siloes as once was traditional.
