Press Releases

Energy Harvesters markets at $131.4 million in 2012 are projected to increase to $4.2 billion in 2019. Growth is anticipated to be based on demand for micro power generation that can be used to charge thin film batteries. Systems provide clean energy that is good for the environment. Growth is based on global demand for sensors and wireless sensor networks that permit control of systems.
The developed countries as well as the developing in Asia-Pacific, Europe and North America, are keen towards energy infrastructure upgrades to meet the growing demand for power and taking measures to control energy future consumption. With this objective the energy storage projects are soon to take priority within the energy policies, with the U.S. already having advanced. Electric vehicles is also taking priority with the Electric Vehicle Initiative (EVI) members, including the U.S., U.K., France, Germany, China, Japan, India and others, having pledged to add 20 million new electric vehicles on road by 2020.
Electronic warfare is an indispensable component of any military force. The capability and efficiency of the electronic warfare system can change the outcome of a war. Electronic warfare systems in the past consisted of analog systems with capabilities limited by the hardware and software. The advancements in the field of electronics enables today’s electronic warfare systems to incorporate more digital capability and faster signal processors enable better performance. The global electronic warfare market is estimated to be $12.15 billion in 2014 and is expected to register a CAGR of 4.50% to reach $15.59 billion in 2020. The growth regions will be Latin America, Middle East and Asia-Pacific.
As the European and Global economy slowly recover from the downturn of the last few years, the European Electronic Manufacturing Services (EMS) Industry in 2013 is forecast to decrease by 0.5% in 2013, compared with 2012 and total European revenues are estimated at Euro 25.5 billion. We forecast that Western Europe will in fact grow in 2013 to 11.08 billion, from 11.00 billion in 2012 and that this growth will slowly increase through to 27.8 billion by the end of 2017.
Wireless semiconductors are more prominent now than ever and have very high expectations for future growth and development. Nearly all new consumer and communications applications are coming with wireless technology and customers are getting used to the newfound freedom; however, medical, industrial, and even automotive segments are beginning to embrace wireless technology. It is no surprise that this market's revenue is anticipated to grow 9 percent in 2013 and even less of a surprise that the market is likely to continue growth of 10 percent over the next several years, if not more.
It is an open secret that, for a variety of reasons, the U.S. manufacturing base has sharply deteriorated over the past three decades, and the semiconductor industry is no exception. In fact, this industry may have suffered harder than some other American enterprises. The purpose of this paper is to explain the causes of this decline and offer some commonsense economic policies that may lead to the industry’s revival.
Roboticist and inventor James McLurkin will share his research and insights into the future of multi-robot systems or "swarm robotics" during his keynote session at IPC APEX EXPO® 2014 on Wednesday, March 26, in Las Vegas.
Global market for Semiconductor Fabrication Material is projected to reach US$33.3 billion by 2018, driven by steady increase in IC fabrication activity in response to growing demand for electronic devices. Demand for semiconductor fabrication material is largely tied to the health of the semiconductor industry, which in turn is largely influenced by the demand for electronics. Demand patterns in major downstream markets such as computers, communications equipment, digital home appliances, and industrial electronics influences IC fabrication activity. Growing demand for electronic chip fabrication as a result of increasing production of mobile computing devices such as notebooks, smartphones and tablet PCs, is therefore benefiting growth in the semiconductor fabrication material market. While consumer electronics and appliances remain the primary driver of growth, emerging applications in automotive electronics, medical device electronics, defense and aerospace electronics, including state-of-the-art weaponry, are poised to fuel future growth in the market.
Sensors market in consumer electronics is in growth stage and contains a great potential across industry verticals such as Entertainment, Information Technology, Communication Products, and Home Appliances. The increasing demand of sensors in smart phones and tablets will boost the market in the days to come with the help of increased R&D in this field. Products which are smaller in size with lower power consumption would be the captivating essentials for new entrants as well as winning opportunities for the established players.
Wireless LED light bulbs will be one of the fastest growing Internet of Things markets over the next decade reaching tens of millions of households by 2020, according to a new study entitled "Smart Wireless Lighting" - a market dynamics report available from Publications. Growth of wireless LED light bulbs has been tremendous over the past year even with only a few available products today. Cloud connected LED lights along with an insatiable demand for smart device apps have created a mass market opportunity for developers.
