NEW YORK and POINT ROBERTS, Washington, August 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Investorideas.com, a global news source covering leading sectors including food and beverage releases the updated wine stocks directory for investors following the sector.
According to recent research from Smart Research, the US is the market leader in the wine segment but China is projected to take the leading position by 2016-17. The country which is currently the fifth largest wine consumer in the world has become a hot destination for investment by international wine companies.
"New research from Canadean (http://www.canadean.com/) also finds that in the US, women drink wine in order to relax and unwind, seeking good value options, whereas men are more likely to be wine buffs, searching for high quality and new drink experiences. In 2013 the US spent a total of $21.2 billion on wine. Women are the biggest drinkers accounting for 59% of consumption by volume compared to 41% for men.
According to Canadean's new research, women desire products that will help them relax and unwind, with this need motivating over $6.7 billion in wine sales in 2013. Finding good value wine is also highly important to women: 15% of what they buy is driven by the search for products which give the best value for money. According to Catherine O'Connor, senior analyst at Canadean, this is partly due to women's high wine consumption: "Being more regular drinkers of wine than men, women look to find affordable offerings that allow them to enjoy the drink frequently without feeling guilt over their spending. This makes communicating value an essential part of how marketers should target women."
Although they drink less wine than women, men spend more in the search for quality
Male wine consumers in the US are driven by the search for quality products and new drink experiences. Although they drink less wine than women, they spend considerably more money in their search for high quality products. Men spent $1.8 billion to meet this need in 2013, whereas women only spent $1.0 billion in their search for quality. Men are also driven to find products that offer new experiences, with this need fuelling $2.4 billion of their wine consumption compared to $2.2 billion of female consumption."

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video.

In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...
