Global Masterbatch Market Forecast and Opportunities, 2019

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

Apache Hadoop is a key technology for gaining business insights from your Big Data, but the penetration into enterprises is shockingly low. In fact, Apache Hadoop and Big Data proponents recognize that this technology has not yet achieved its game-changing business potential.

For basic one-to-one voice or video calling solutions, WebRTC has proven to be a very powerful technology. Although WebRTC’s core functionality is to provide secure, real-time p2p media streaming, leveraging native platform features and server-side components brings up new communication capabilities for web and native mobile applications, allowing for advanced multi-user use cases such as video broadcasting, conferencing, and media recording.
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...

DevOps and microservices are permeating software engineering teams broadly, whether these teams are in pure software shops but happen to run a business, such Uber and Airbnb, or in companies that rely heavily on software to run more traditional business, such as financial firms or high-end manufacturers. Microservices and DevOps have created software development and therefore business speed and agility benefits, but they have also created problems; specifically, they have created software sec...
Much of the value of DevOps comes from a (renewed) focus on measurement, sharing, and continuous feedback loops. In increasingly complex DevOps workflows and environments, and especially in larger, regulated, or more crystallized organizations, these core concepts become even more critical. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, Andi Mann, Chief Technology Advocate at Splunk, showed how, by focusing on 'metrics that matter,' you can provide objective, transparent, and meaningful f...
Information technology is an industry that has always experienced change, and the dramatic change sweeping across the industry today could not be truthfully described as the first time we've seen such widespread change impacting customer investments. However, the rate of the change, and the potential outcomes from today's digital transformation has the distinct potential to separate the industry into two camps: Organizations that see the change coming, embrace it, and successful leverage it; and...
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
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.

He will also introduce ways to handle data and how one can develop IoT solutions that are lean, flexible and configurable, thus making IoT infrastructure agile and scalable.
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...
