http://www.reportlinker.com/p02057061/-Personal-Protective-Equipment-in-the-Global-Manunfacturing-Industry—Outlook-and-Trends.html#utm_source=prnewswire&utm_medium=pr&utm_campaign=Aerospace_and_Defense

This Market Insight provides a qualitative analysis of the opportunities for personal protective equipment (PPE) products in the global manufacturing industry. It offers an overview of the general types of PPE products required for the overall manufacturing industry. In addition, it discusses some of the specific hazards prevalent in the key sectors, namely, metals, chemicals and materials, machinery and equipment, and automotive and transportation. The study also analyzes employment growth trends and their impact on the market.

Market Overview

This private market insight offers an overview of the personal protective equipment (PPE) market in the global manufacturing industry.

Manufacturing is an important industry that makes a significant GDP contribution to the global economy. In industrialized economies, such as Germany, Italy, the United Kingdom, the United States, and Japan, it makes a vital contribution to the economy; in developing countries, substantial growth is being witnessed in the industry.

However, some developed economies are facing a shrinkage in their manufacturing bases as they are becoming increasingly service-based. This has led to a stagnation or a decline in manufacturing output over the past few years.

Other challenges, such as the slower economic growth and the rising labor costs, are adding to the woes of the manufacturing industry in developed countries.

Developing economies are growing faster, as most of these countries' production is outsourced. Additionally, improving economic conditions and demographics are proving to be increasingly attractive for domestic consumption in countries such as China and India. A growing number of manufacturers from different sectors see this as an opportunity to be tapped into.

The demand for PPE in any industry is directly affected by the employment growth and the hazards associated with the occupation.

The manufacturing industry poses many hazards for employees, which are common across the industry. However, the nature and the degree of hazards vary from one sector to another and are also dependent on the type of occupation.

In addition, there are hazards that are specific to certain sectors of manufacturing. For example, refining operations, in addition to chemical hazards, pose a risk of shock hazards due to static electricity.

The manufacturing industry comprises a wide range of diverse sectors. The dynamics and the nature of these sectors vary among each other and also from one region to another.

In this study, an overview of opportunities for PPE is provided on an aggregate level. While there is a wide range of hazards and protection types that are common to general manufacturing, there are also specific hazards that are unique to some sectors that require different PPE products.

This deliverable covers some of the specific requirements by individual sectors for the top-four largest sectors based on employment size: Metals, chemicals and materials, machinery and equipment, and automotive and transportation.

Food and beverage also ranks among the largest in terms of employment size. However, this sector is not covered in detail in this study as Frost & Sullivan has published a separate deliverable titled "Personal Protective Equipment in the Global Food and Beverage Industry—Outlook and Trends", which highlights the opportunities for PPE products in the sector.

Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of (at least) three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the back-end service, and the mobile application for the end user’s controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target –...
What does it look like when you have access to cloud infrastructure and platform under the same roof? Let’s talk about the different layers of Technology as a Service: who cares, what runs where, and how does it all fit together. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Phil Jackson, Lead Technology Evangelist at SoftLayer, an IBM company, spoke about the picture being painted by IBM Cloud and how the tools being crafted can help fill the gaps in your IT infrastructure.
One of biggest questions about Big Data is “How do we harness all that information for business use quickly and effectively?” Geographic Information Systems (GIS) or spatial technology is about more than making maps, but adding critical context and meaning to data of all types, coming from all different channels – even sensors. In his session at @ThingsExpo, William (Bill) Meehan, director of utility solutions for Esri, will take a closer look at the current state of spatial technology and ar...
According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.
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...
Let’s face it, embracing new storage technologies, capabilities and upgrading to new hardware often adds complexity and increases costs. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Seth Oxenhorn, Vice President of Business Development & Alliances at FalconStor, discussed how a truly heterogeneous software-defined storage approach can add value to legacy platforms and heterogeneous environments. The result reduces complexity, significantly lowers cost, and provides IT organizations with improved efficienc...
Businesses are struggling to manage the information flow and interactions between all of these new devices and things jumping on their network, and the apps and IT systems they control. The data businesses gather is only helpful if they can do something with it.

19th Cloud Expo, taking place November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA, will feature technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading industry players in the world. Cloud computing is now being embraced by a majority of enterprises of all sizes. Yesterday's debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy. Meanwhile, 94% of enterpri...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
Ask someone to architect an Internet of Things (IoT) solution and you are guaranteed to see a reference to the cloud. This would lead you to believe that IoT requires the cloud to exist. However, there are many IoT use cases where the cloud is not feasible or desirable. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, will discuss the strategies that exist to extend intelligence directly to IoT devices and sensors, freeing them from the constraints of ...
In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...
