Specialty pulp and paper chemicals are chemicals used as raw materials in the manufacture of specialty paper. The specialty paper market is a niche market and accounts for 4% of the overall paper production. However, the volume of chemicals used for specialty papers is relatively high as compared to regular commodity papers. The growing demand for specialty papers in the consumer sector and industrial processes for filtration, labeling and graphic arts is expected to drive the market over the next few years. In addition, the rising global population is expected to drive industrial and consumer sector which is consequently expected to boost the demand for specialty papers. However, increasing environmental concerns regarding effect of certain chemicals, which are used as specialty chemicals, are expected to hamper the demand. Development of new chemicals and technologies such as enzymes and growing demand for recycled paper is expected to open new opportunities for the growth of the market within the near future.

Functional chemicals were the largest product segment of the market accounting for over 50% in 2012. Functional chemicals is expected to be the fastest growing segment due to the high demand for dyed, pigmented and coated paper for various industrial, consumer and art purposes. In addition, the growing demand for writing paper on account of increased literacy in developing countries such as Indonesia, India and China is expected to contribute to the demand for functional chemicals. Bleaching chemicals was the second largest product segment of the market. However, process chemicals are expected to be the second fastest growing segment due to the development of environment friendly chemicals.

North America and Europe were the highest consumers of specialty pulp and paper chemicals, each accounting for approximately 40% of the market in 2012. The dominance of North America and Europe was primarily due to the large demand from the specialty paper industry owing to various applications of the specialty papers in essential economy and non-essential economy. In addition, Canada and Southern U.S. have a significant number of wood pulp manufacturing sites, which resulted in the presence of a huge specialty chemicals market in this region. However, Asia Pacific is expected to show the highest growth within the forecast period. Industrial development and growth of the retail market in this region is expected to drive the demand for specialty chemicals in this region. Furthermore, development of pulp and paper industries in this region is expected to boost the demand for specialty pulp and paper chemicals.

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time. In his session at Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, Product and Marketing at Tintri, wil...
As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and microservices. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...

DevOps theory promotes a culture of continuous improvement built on collaboration, empowerment, systems thinking, and feedback loops. But how do you collaborate effectively across the traditional silos? How can you make decisions without system-wide visibility? How can you see the whole system when it is spread across teams and locations? How do you close feedback loops across teams and activities delivering complex multi-tier, cloud, container, serverless, and/or API-based services?
Today every business relies on software to drive the innovation necessary for a competitive edge in the Application Economy. This is why collaboration between development and operations, or DevOps, has become IT’s number one priority. Whether you are in Dev or Ops, understanding how to implement a DevOps strategy can deliver faster development cycles, improved software quality, reduced deployment times and overall better experiences for your customers.
In the 21st century, security on the Internet has become one of the most important issues. We hear more and more about cyber-attacks on the websites of large corporations, banks and even small businesses. When online we’re concerned not only for our own safety but also our privacy. We have to know that hackers usually start their preparation by investigating the private information of admins – the habits, interests, visited websites and so on. On the other hand, our own security is in danger bec...
The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
Enterprises have been using both Big Data and virtualization for years. Until recently, however, most enterprises have not combined the two. Big Data's demands for higher levels of performance, the ability to control quality-of-service (QoS), and the ability to adhere to SLAs have kept it on bare metal, apart from the modern data center cloud. With recent technology innovations, we've seen the advantages of bare metal erode to such a degree that the enhanced flexibility and reduced costs that cl...
