LONDON, Sept. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportbuyer.com has added a new market research report:

Global Masterbatch Market Forecast and Opportunities, 2019

https://www.reportbuyer.com/product/2133080/Global-Masterbatch-Market-Forecast-and-Opportunities-2019.html

Masterbatches find widespread use in various industries such as packaging, building and construction, automotive, appliances and consumer goods. Growth in masterbatch market is directly related to the amount of polymer consumption in a region. With increasing use of plastic in flexible packaging, building and construction and automotive industries, the global masterbatch market is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 5.3% during 2014-19. Masterbatches are classified into four categories- black, white, color and additive, depending on the color or certain functional properties they impart to the base polymer. Among different masterbatch types, color masterbatches occupied the highest revenue share in 2013. Color masterbatches are used in the production of plastics for automotive, appliances, food and beverage and pharmaceutical packaging. Black masterbatches are majorly used in building and construction, automotive and consumer appliance industries. Emergence of large-scale infrastructural projects in the Middle East and growth in Asia-Pacific construction industry are expected to emerge as major demand drivers for black masterbatches over the next five years. Additives is the fastest growing segment of masterbatches due to growing preference for customized plastic products in packaging, automotive, appliance, textile, pharmaceutical, and consumer goods industries.

According to "Global Masterbatch Market Forecast & Opportunities, 2019", fast emerging economies such as China and India as well as the Middle East and South America are expected to be the major drivers for the global masterbatch market during the forecast period. The report also points out that A. Schulman, Ampacet and Clariant are the largest global masterbatch players. Market dynamics in developed regions such as Western Europe and North America are significantly different from developing regions like Asia-Pacific and Africa. The developed regions are dominated by select global players such as A. Schulman, Ampacet, Clariant, and PolyOne. These regions are also characterized by significant technology advancements and relatively low growth rate of end-user segments. On the contrary, developing markets are characterized by several small-scale domestic players offering low-cost masterbatches, and high end-user industry demand. China alone has more than 500 masterbatch manufacturers. However, during the last decade, global masterbatch leaders have increased their focus on mergers and acquisitions in Asia-Pacific, the Middle East and South America. At the same time, few companies are streamlining their masterbatch business by downsizing or reducing operations in Europe or America, and increasing their presence in Asia-Pacific. "Global Masterbatch Market Forecast & Opportunities, 2019" elaborates following particulars:

• Global Masterbatch Market Size, Share and Forecast
• Regional Analysis (Asia-Pacific, Americas, Europe, Middle East & Africa)
• Segmental Analysis – Black, White, Color and Additive

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...
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.

As someone who has been dedicated to automation and Application Release Automation (ARA) technology for almost six years now, one of the most common questions I get asked regards Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). Specifically, people want to know whether release automation is still needed when a PaaS is in place, and why. Isn't that what a PaaS provides? A solution to the deployment and runtime challenges of an application? Why would anyone using a PaaS then need an automation engine with workflow ...
