Frost & Sullivan expects Smart Cities to be a $1.5 Trillion market by 2020, with multiple opportunities to tap into infrastructure development, technology integration and energy and security services. This session will look into the market opportunities, growth areas and new business models in the Smart City space, and also provide insight into the competitive landscape highlighting the next game changers in the market.
The session will also look into how utility providers, infrastructure companies, system integrators and telecom operators are actively pursuing this market. It will also discuss new funding mechanisms and public-private dynamics such as equity based funding and performance based contracting.
Construction and Demolition (C&D) waste has become a major concern in Europe, driven by legal requirements regarding waste reduction, recycling and diverting waste material resources away from landfilling. The gradual increase of waste and limited landfill space boost recycling efforts, which benefits the development of the C&D waste recycling services market. Legislative goals are targeting 70% recycling of C&D waste by 2020, which is a key driver for this market. The push for C&D waste recycling has further prompted waste management companies to optimize collection systems and increase recycling levels to sustain market revenues. Optimization of collection and recycling technologies is expected to increase revenue for C&D waste recycling companies. This briefing provides top-level insight of the analysis conducted on the European C&D Waste Recycling sector for the forecast period from 2012 to 2020.
Due to the upcoming FIFA World Cup in 2022, government legislation is mandating the usage of energy-efficient lighting in the Middle Eastern region. This growing environmental concern has resulted in wide awareness about green products. Growing infrastructure investments in the regions are steadily driving the energy-efficient and intelligent lighting market; therefore, LED lighting is expected to be the fastest-growing lighting technology in the Middle East.
This analyst briefing will discuss the swift flow of infrastructure LED lighting investments in the Middle East region, with a focus on the GCC countries like KSA and Qatar.
Legislation will be the key driver for the ballast water treatment systems (BWTS) market globally with significant developments that include the expected ratification of the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) convention in 2014. Furthermore, the recent acceptance of the IMO convention by Germany, raising the dead weight tonnage to 30.3 percent; support from the United States Coast Guard (USCG) legislation, Alternate Management System (AMS); and other national legislation's are sustaining the demand for BWTS installations.
Why You Should Attend:
· Get insights on the market growth and structure post-ratification of the IMO Convention
· Learn the strengths of AMS and the USCG regulations, and their impact on the current market scenario
· Identify current technologies that can potentially conquer the market, along with key insights on the competitive structure and statistics on the current addressable market
· Learn about ship owners’ preferences to consider retrofitting options prior to ratification and what key industry challenges the equipment suppliers face
The water industry has always been resilient in the rough economic conditions. To a certain extent this is true, bearing in mind that water will always be a national interest and international importance. Nonetheless, the water industry landscape is rapidly changing with globalization of economies and technologies. Companies need to change faster to be ahead in relevance in the fragmented water market place.
Forget about SWOT and PESTLE analysis. There are more important
matters and best practices that water companies need to know to
sustain in the ever competitive water market.
In addition to the above, this briefing may answer some key questions:
•Can wastewater reuse make it big?
•Are water companies targeting the right end-user segments, and right countries?
•Where are the opportunities besides China and India?
The future of lighting, led by LED lighting, will be determined by changes in the demographics of world population, urbanization, and greater emphasis on energy conservation. This briefing will investigate the key focus areas and trends in LED lighting across the globe.
Why you should attend:
• To identify the key adoption factors for LED lighting
• To learn about the R&D focus areas in LED
• To identify technology convergence scenarios and new product development opportunities in LED lighting
Understanding infrastructure development is critical to risk mitigation and the development of an accurate view of the potential success of a business in a specific country or region. Key sectors, such as transportation and energy, form the core of infrastructure development plans across the continent and will stimulate increased intra-Africa trade as well as regional integration.
This briefing will provide an overview of key transport infrastructure developments within sub-Saharan Africa that are expected to sustain the subcontinent's economic growth drive.
A significant push has been witnessed from governments, suppliers and service providers to make our cities "smart." This calls for several key elements to come together cohesively and profitably to make smart cities a long-term value proposition for all involved.
This briefing will delve into the issues, challenges, and success factors that need to be evaluated in implementing smart city plans.
The analyst briefing will discuss:
- The latest global activities in waste upcycling
- Nine dimensions of waste upcycling technologies and insights on the roadmap and penetration prospects of these technologies
- An overview of the anticipated value chain after five years in this technology domain
