Anti-Smoking Legislations and High Taxes Mar Cigarette Market Landscape, According to a New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.

San Jose, California (PRWEB) March 09, 2015

Follow us on LinkedIn Cigarettes are small cylinder-shaped products of ground or shredded tobacco wrapped in non-nicotine containing substances such as paper, and are meant to be smoked. Cigarettes represent the largest segment in the global tobacco products market, with over 5.0 trillion units consumed each year. The global market for cigarettes is mature, with sales declining in most markets worldwide. Anti-smoking regulations, restrictions on marketing and promotional activities, and rising ad valorem and volumetric taxes are some of the challenges facing the market. Governments worldwide continue to embark on various pricing and non-pricing mechanisms to disincentivize cigarette smoking, which will have significant impact on the market going forwards.

Price increase represents a perpetual phenomenon in the cigarette industry worldwide. The intended outcome of this strategy is to reduce smoking prevalence. The imposition of higher excise taxes and weaker macroeconomic environment, however, are driving paradoxical trends in the global cigarettes market. Many consumers worldwide traded down to cheaper brands in recent years against the backdrop of fiscal uncertainty, higher unemployment, and higher product prices. On the other hand, growing prices have diminished the perceived value of premium brands, motivating many to trade up to premium cigarettes. Additionally, higher taxes on cigarettes failed to produce the desired outcome as consumers in some markets began shifting to low cost tobacco products in response. Sales of pipe tobacco in the Middle East and Africa, and cigarillos in Europe and the United States have become more popular as a result.

As stated by the new market research report on Cigarettes, Asia-Pacific, led by China, represents the single largest market worldwide. The region is also forecast to emerge as the fastest growing market with a value CAGR of 3.4% over the analysis period. Growing population, rising per capita income and less stringent regulatory environment are the key factors driving consumption of cigarettes in the region.

Key players covered in the report include British American Tobacco, China National Tobacco Corporation, Imperial Tobacco Group PLC, Japan Tobacco Group, and Philip Morris International.

The research report titled Cigarettes: A Global Strategic Business Report announced by Global Industry Analysts Inc., provides a comprehensive review of market trends, issues, drivers, company profiles, mergers, acquisitions and other strategic industry activities. The report provides market estimates and projections in value (US$ ) and volume (sticks) for global and regional markets including the US, Canada, Japan, Europe (France, Germany, Italy, UK, Spain, Russia, Greece, Poland, Turkey, Ukraine, and Rest of Europe), Asia-Pacific (Australia, China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, and Rest of Asia-Pacific), Latin America (Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru, and Venezuela), and Rest of World.

Growing Manufacturing Activity in Developing Countries Drives the Global Sealants Market, According to a New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.

San Jose, California (PRWEB) March 04, 2015

Follow us on LinkedIn Sealants are chemically prepared substances used to make any given surface airtight and watertight to prevent the escape of solids, gases, and liquids. Sealants are also used for effectively plugging-in small holes which are difficult to fill with drywall and concrete. Supported by superior adhesion, corrosion resistance and insoluble properties and features, sealants are increasingly finding use in acoustical and thermal insulation applications across industries ranging from construction, transportation, packaging to wood working. Construction and transportation industries represent the two largest end-use sectors, accounting for a lions share of the global sealants demand. In the construction sector, sealants are used for building, maintaining and protecting residential structures, civil infrastructure and commercial facilities. In the transportation sector, particularly in automobiles, sealants are used for vehicle window sealing and glazing, corrosion protection and vibration and sound deadening applications. While specialty sealants are used widely in the construction and automotive industries, general-purpose sealants find applications in both commercial and industrial sectors that include textiles, consumer goods, and packaging, among others.

The growth in the market is heavily reliant on economic health, and macro-economic factors such as GDP growth, consumer and business confidence levels and increases in industrial production and output. Strong construction activity in developing countries is therefore fuelling the growth of polyurethane sealants, which are widely used in building modular homes, given their elasticity and structural integrity characteristics. Technological advancements are additionally expanding the use of these sealants to on-site construction projects. Silyl Terminated Polyurethanes, for example, are moisture-cured, paintable and one-component sealants that are finding new application possibilities in energy-efficient construction projects. Also expected to drive growth in the market is the growing focus on the development of eco-friendly sealants. A key factor driving the trend is the increasing pressure exerted by governments worldwide on industries to reduce their carbon footprint and effectively manage waste. Environment-friendly sealants as substitutes to conventional sealants with reduced CO2 emissions and enhanced energy efficiency, will therefore witness strong growth.

As stated by the new market research report on Sealants, the United States, Japan, and Europe represent major markets worldwide. Europe represents the largest market worldwide. Asia-Pacific is forecast to emerge as the fastest growing market with a projected CAGR of 7.6% over the analysis period. Growth in the region is led by strong infrastructure and construction investments in the leading Asian economies like China, Taiwan, South Korea, Thailand, Malaysia, and India. The emergence of Asia as a global manufacturing hub will additionally spur growth in the coming years.

Major players in the market include 3M, ADCO Global Inc., Bison International B.V., Bostik, Inc., Chemence Ltd., The Dow Chemical Company, Dow Corning Corporation, Franklin International, H.B. Fuller Company, Henkel AG &Co. KGaA, Hernon Manufacturing, Inc., Hodgson Sealants (Holdings) Ltd., Hutchinson Worldwide, Illinois Tool Works Inc., Konishi Co., Ltd., LORD Corporation, Mapei S.P.A, Mapei Corporation, McCoy Soudal, Momentive, PPG Aerospace Inc., RPM International, Inc., Sika AG, Super Glue Corporation, and Universal Sealants Limited, among others.

The research report titled Sealants: A Global Strategic Business Report announced by Global Industry Analysts Inc., provides a comprehensive review of market trends, company profiles, mergers, acquisitions and other strategic industry activities. The report provides market estimates and projections in Thousands of US$ and Thousand Pounds for all major geographic markets including the US, Canada, Japan, Europe (France, Germany, Italy, UK, Spain, Russia, and Rest of Europe), Asia-Pacific (China, and Rest of Asia-Pacific), Latin America (Brazil, and Rest of Latin America), and Rest of World.

Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty Launches Asia Desk with Opening of New Affiliate Office in Mainland China; Joins Grand Opening Events in Beijing


Kirkland, WA (PRWEB) October 14, 2014

Realogics Sothebys International Realty (RSIR), the Pacific Northwests largest affiliate for the fast-growing global real estate network, formally announced today a new Asia Desk a network of bilingual real estate brokers fluent in Mandarin, Cantonese or Korean who are experienced in working with the unique demands of overseas home buyers. Anticipating the addition of new brokers, the firm is expanding its Eastside flagship branch office in downtown Kirkland, which will soon feature an authentic Asian-themed tea room to host private meetings with international guests.

Having witnessed the impact of Asian homebuyers in my hometown of Vancouver in British Columbia, I understand the exponential growth prospects of this foreign buyer segment, said Dean Jones, President & CEO of Realogics Sothebys International Realty. International is our middle name and so were playing a pivotal role in building out networks between the Pacific Northwest region and Asia. This is just the beginning.

The Asia Desk operations are directly networked with Beijing Sothebys International Realty, which Jones referred to the franchise system and helped to establish over the past three years. RSIR owners Dean and Stacy Jones attended the October 10th Grand Opening in Beijing and were joined by several other RSIR brokers including Lili Shang, a Beijing-born immigrant to the US who now specializes in assisting Chinese home buyers establish residency in the Puget Sound region.

Sothebys International Realty is an incredibly powerful brand throughout Asia, which has opened many doors for me to expand my business into China, said Shang. I am returning with many opportunities and a heightened awareness of just how attractive the Seattle/Bellevue metro area is to Mainland Chinese.

According to international home buyer research provided by the National Association of Realtors, Canadians still buy more homes in the US but the Chinese spend more in aggregate. International sales in the US are expected to represent $ 92.2 billion in 2014 and Washington State is among the fastest growing markets for foreign buyers. Census data reveals Asians are the fastest growing demographic in Washington. In many Eastside communities, including the City of Bellevue, Asians now comprise 30-percent of the population spurring a rise in Mandarin-speaking businesses specializing in international relocation services. Recently the New York Times estimated that 40% of the Eastside homes valued above $ 1 million were sold to Chinese home buyers.

For Chinese, the real estate axiom is not Location-Location-Location, adds Jones. Its Location-Education-Environment. We are finding favor given our close proximity to Asia, renowned schools and pristine natural environment. The American Dream is simply more attainable here versus the traditionally targeted markets like Vancouver, San Francisco or Los Angeles, which can cost a third more or even twice as much for a similar home. Besides, I think our propensity for capital appreciation is higher in the Seattle/Bellevue metro area, spurred in part by the foreign buying trends but also given favorable economic growth forecasts.

It helps too that the box office hit movie Beijing Meets Seattle promotes relocation to the area. Visit Seattle predicts that Chinese tourists will soon become the highest volume international visitor to Seattle and likewise, air carriers such as Hainan Airlines and Delta Airlines have expanded routes direct to Hong Kong, Beijing and Shanghai.

Jones says other trends have played an active role in the discovery of the Pacific Northwest area by Asians. Earlier in 2014, the Canadian government reset its policies on foreign direct investment and immigration programs returning some 60,000 applications and causing many Asian consumers to seek alternate solutions such as the USCIS EB-5 Green Card program. This event has allowed many Seattle-area projects funded by this program to break ground in recent weeks. Furthermore, the passing of Proposition 30 in California (making it the most heavily taxed state in the union) contrasts sharply to Washington State where there is no income tax.

To be sure, RSIR is doing its part to increase the visibility of Puget Sound lifestyles by participating in various international networking events like the recent Nan Hai Biz-Tech Summit in Bellevue, The Beijing Luxury Property Show in Beijing, The Asian Real Estate Association of America (AREAA) Global Summit in New York City and representing the region during the Grand Opening of Beijing Sothebys International Realty also in Beijing. The firm is also publishing featured articles in targeted magazines overseas and manages a dedicated website comparing gateway markets in the US for overseas consumers at DragonandthePearls.com.

On October 15, RSIR will host the Pacific Rim Real Estate Summit entitled Emerging Gateways at the Connoisseurs of Life Showroom located at 15 Lake Street in downtown Kirkland. Title sponsor Merrill Lynch welcomes keynote speaker Mauricio Umansky, CEO of Los Angeles-based The Agency, to present trends on international home buying, global citizenship and emerging gateway markets such as the Seattle/Bellevue metro area. Dean Jones will moderate an expert panel on real estate, immigration and finance including guests from Manhattan and Vancouver.

Albany,NY (PRWEB) March 02, 2015

The global automotive wire and cable materials market is directly proportionate to the growth of the automobile industry. According to a recent report published by Transparency Market Research (TMR), the thriving automotive sector is one of the major forces influencing the wire and cable materials market. The report, titled Automotive Wire and Cable Materials Market – Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 – 2019, is available for sale on the companys website.

The 89-page research study discusses the emergence and development of the automotive wire and cable materials market, providing a comprehensive overview of the global scenario. Segmenting the overall market on the basis of products, the report also cross-examines the product segments with respect to four key geographical regions: North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the World. Automotive wire and cable materials include polyphenylene ether (PPE), cross linked polyethylene (XPLE), thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), and others.

Regionally, Asia-Pacific dominates the automotive wire and cable materials market in terms of consumption. The automotive industry has been flourishing in this region owing to rising demand for commercial and personal vehicles and growing purchasing power. The gross domestic product (GDP) in emerging economies such as Malaysia, India, China, and Indonesia has increased considerably, thereby fueling the automotive as well as automotive wire and cable materials market. Moreover, many leading market players are based in the Asia-Pacific region and this has helped cater to the ever-increasing demand from the automotive industry.

In terms of consumption, North America is the second-largest market for automotive wire and cable materials, followed by Europe. The U.S. economy has been on the path of revival, which has supported the demand for automobiles. A majority of the leading automobile manufacturers are based in Europe, which offers a certain degree of advantage for the market. Nevertheless, the demand for these vehicles more often than not stems from other geographies such as Asia, thereby distributing the consumption of automotive wire and cable materials and sharply reducing the automotive demand from within Europe.

A factor that challenges the growth of the market is environmental concerns associated with the recycling and disposal of automotive wire and cables. However, factors such as rising in-vehicle wiring applications, favorable government initiatives to promote hybrid and electric cars, and introduction of bio-based plasticizers are expected to propel automotive wire and cable materials in the coming years.
