'High Performance Alloys Market to Stand at 425kt in 2013' Says Visiongain Report

LONDON, February 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Visiongain's analysis indicates that the global high performance alloys market containing alloys composed of titanium, nickel and cobalt will reach a volume of 425kt in 2013. Driving the demand in these alloys will be the aviation industry from the western economies and later the emerging economies. Aiding this growth will be the constant demand for more healthcare and oesto treatment from a progressively elderly global population but also from the rise of medical tourism in certain Middle Eastern and Asia-Pacific hot spots. General industrial works and heavy industrial manufacturing in addition to energy generation industries will also play a vital part in the growth in tonnage in the high performance alloy industry. However, growth will start to lag as high performance alloys face rising amounts of pressure and competition from other materials trying to take market share as companies look to other materials in order to cut down on the heavy costs incurred in the manufacturing and purchasing of high performance alloys.

The high performance alloys market is therefore forecast by Visiongain to record growth over the near term of the next decade. High performance alloys have little room to manoeuvre in new markets due to their costly manufacturing process, high level of technical knowledge required and limited supply but because of their properties they are often the only material that can be used in exacting situations. As of this there use going forward is fairly well secured and synonymous with demanding and technical areas such as aerospace where only the best materials will do.

The visiongain author of the Global High Performance Alloys Market 2013-2023: Prospects for Titanium, Nickel & Cobalt report commented that 'The High Performance Alloys Market is and will continue to be a key but very small market when viewed in contrast and comparison to the wider metal markets in terms of tonnage used and demanded. High performance alloys have specialist applications within certain industries such as aerospace and energy generation where only these specific metal alloys can be used as any other material will be prone to failure in the given environment. As of this these metals are vital but only in small amounts as wherever these metal alloys can be substituted they are due to their high costs in terms of finance and technical ability needed. Over the next ten years we will see demand in these metal alloys increase as the industries which depend on these materials, for lack of alternatives, grow larger. Towards the end of the decade we will see demand start to slow as technology brings new materials such as composites and ceramics to the fore. Manufacturing process within the industry are also set to change over the decade which will bring a more efficient and less wasteful aspect to the high performance alloy market. Moving forward through the decade we still see the western economies as being the number one suppliers and users of these metals but the BRICs will be rapidly catching them up and the dynamics of the industry on a national basis will change.

The 161 page report contains 99 tables, charts and graphs that add visual analysis in order to explain developing trends and dynamics within the high performance alloys market. Visiongain provides forecasts for the period 2013-2023 in terms of sales and size (kt) for the global high performance alloy market, as well as for 5 subsectors (aerospace, industrial, energy generation, healthcare and other) of the high performance alloys market and also by the 3 main metals, titanium, nickel and cobalt.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly by extending current technologies, products and networks. By 2020, Cisco estimates there will be 50 billion connected devices. Gartner has forecast revenues of over $300 billion, just to IoT suppliers. Now is the time to figure out how you’ll make money – not just create innovative products. With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data shows "less than 10 percent of IoT developers are making enough to support a reasonably sized team....
You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”
Today’s connected world is moving from devices towards things, what this means is that by using increasingly low cost sensors embedded in devices we can create many new use cases. These span across use cases in cities, vehicles, home, offices, factories, retail environments, worksites, health, logistics, and health. These use cases rely on ubiquitous connectivity and generate massive amounts of data at scale. These technologies enable new business opportunities, ways to optimize and automate, along with new ways to engage with users.
The IoT is upon us, but today’s databases, built on 30-year-old math, require multiple platforms to create a single solution. Data demands of the IoT require Big Data systems that can handle ingest, transactions and analytics concurrently adapting to varied situations as they occur, with speed at scale. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chad Jones, chief strategy officer at Deep Information Sciences, will look differently at IoT data so enterprises can fully leverage their IoT potential. He’ll share tips on how to speed up business initiatives, harness Big Data and remain one step ahead by apply...
There will be 20 billion IoT devices connected to the Internet soon. What if we could control these devices with our voice, mind, or gestures? What if we could teach these devices how to talk to each other? What if these devices could learn how to interact with us (and each other) to make our lives better? What if Jarvis was real? How can I gain these super powers? In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, will show you!
