LONDON, March 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportbuyer.com just published a new market research report:
Investment in oilfield exploration activities drives demand
The European marine generator set market is mature, thus, has slow growth. Much of the shipbuilding activities have migrated to the Asian countries of South Korea, China, and Japan. Eurozone recession, combined with financing difficulties, is affecting demand for new vessels and, thus, gensets used in Europe. However, Europe has its competitive advantage in building advance ships. Moreover, oil and gas exploration and production activities and growth in renewable energy (especially offshore wind) are key driving factors for ships and vessel production and, thus, gensets in the European market. The study is from 2010 to 2017 and the base year is 2012.
•The European marine generator set (genset) market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) ofX% from 2012 to 2017 in revenue and units are expected to increase from X in 2012 to X in 2017.
•Commercial vessels such as cargo ships, tankers, and tug boats accounted for more than half of the genset unit sales, followed by pleasure vessels such as ferries, yachts, and ships.
•Oil and gas exploration activities in the North Sea and the focus on manufacturing advance ships are driving the growth of the marine sector in Europe. However, Asia is the hub of shipbuilding with the bulk of business concentrated in China, South Korea, and Japan.
•Moreover, the Eurozone debt crisis and the ongoing recession are affecting demand for boats and ships and, hence, demand for gensets is low.
•The low power range generator set of rating below XkW is highly competitive. Regional distribution faces fierce competition from Turkish, Chinese, and Korean manufacturers.
•Medium to large power range gensets (X kW to X kW and above X MW) are having good growth and not much price erosion compared to the smaller power range.
1. The European marine genset market is mature, however, slow growth is indicated.
2. Eurozone recession and financing difficulties are affecting demand for new vessels and, thus, gensets used.
3. Oil and gas exploration and production activities are the driving factors for ships and vessels, indirectly increasing genset demand.
4. Eighty-nine per cent volume of gensets sold in Europe is in the range ofX kW-X kW. However, the X kW-X kW and X MW-X MW both account for X% of the revenue.
5. Hybrid power and propulsion (use of lithium-ion batteries, renewable energy, and biofuel gensets) are gaining popularity.
•A marine genset (including engine and alternator) is an auxiliary power plant that provides the electricity needed to operate ships. The typical marine generator, similar to all mobile generators, burns either diesel fuel or gasoline.
•This study includes all marine gensets installed on ships that have been built in Europe, irrespective of the ships' destination.

Analysis of the European Marine Generator Set Market
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Bradley Holt, a Developer Advocate with IBM Cloud Data Services, discussed...

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...

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.
