MUNICIPAL WASTE TO ENERGY – A TECHNOLOGY, INDUSTRY AND MARKET ANALYSIS

 

Technology processes that convert municipal waste to energy represent some of the most promising methods to solve environmental problems and to address increasing energy demand caused a growing human population coupled with increasing economic activity.

Municipal waste-to-energy (MWTE) is a renewable energy source which obtained from resources that are essentially unlimited, since it consists of human-generated solid waste that is produced in every country around the globe. MWTE can be used to generate thermal energy and/or electricity. While some renewable energy may have higher costs than energy from conventional sources, under the right conditions this is not necessarily the case. An increasing number of cities, states, provinces and countries are implementing MWTE production in order to reduce their overall energy costs.

If applied using current strategies, MWTE will generate other benefits that include:
• increasing the flexibility of power systems as electricity demand changes;
• reducing pollution and emissions from conventional energy systems; and
• reducing dependency and minimizing expenditure on imported fuels.
Moreover, some MWTE technologies are suited to small off-grid applications. Small energy systems can often contribute to the local economy by creating jobs in manufacturing, installation and servicing.

A number of MWTE technologies are available to communities in the United States and other global regions. These include combustion technologies, landfill gas technologies, plasma gasification technologies, pyrolysis gasification technologies and refuse-derived fuels. Detailed explanations of these key MWTE technologies are provided in the remainder of this report.

STUDY GOAL AND OBJECTIVES

This report focuses on the many new developments that have been taking place in MWTE technologies. Most of the market application sectors are growing at a good pace. In addition, there are new regions with dynamic economies that offer significant application opportunities for technologies used in the conversion of waste to energy.
Among the countries where we see good prospects for this industry are the growing economies of India, China and Brazil. The rapid economic expansions occurring in these evolving major economies, coupled with their large populations, has positioned MWTE among their top renewable energy options, and it is, as well, a key long-term future environmental solution. These developments have created the need for a proper analysis of market and business issues, trends in the MWTE industry, and international markets.

This report has been prepared to:
• provide an overview of MWTE technologies, industry and markets, product capabilities and applications;

GLOBAL SPENDING ON IOT CLOUD PLATFORMS IS EXPECTED TO INCREASE TO $358 BILLION BY 2019

 

 

The Internet of Things (the IoT) for any enterprise requires integration of products and services of information (IT) and operational technology (OT) companies. IT covers the entire spectrum of technologies for information processing and includes embedded technologies that generate data for enterprise use. OT covers connected assets. Companies using IoT technology are going through an evolution, questioning the shift toward more “modern” Internet and big data technologies.

 

IoT technology creates the unique opportunity to collect real-time data from things (sensors, devices, and equipment) and combine that information with data and intelligence from business systems and people. Business processes become smart and connected and operational performance can be improved within individual functional organizations – including engineering, manufacturing, supply chain, quality, support and service – or across the enterprise as a whole. Such comprehensive visibility introduces real-time optimization capabilities for orders, materials, equipment status, costs and product quality. A personalized view of this information can be delivered via role-based applications to anyone, anywhere, at any time, allowing employees, customers and suppliers to make educated, split-second decisions with confidence.

 

The use of the cloud to connect assets brings many advantages, such as on-demand computing resources and storage. But the cloud also brings connectivity and security issues. Big data data stores such as Hadoop® and Cassandra can save time series machine data at much lower cost per terabyte (TB) than traditional data historians. Real-time analytics and messaging protocols used in very high speed financial algorithmic trading (for example, 25,000 transactions per second) can be leveraged in real-time industrial situations. Thus, information based on new low-cost sensors, along with improved ways of accessing and using data, provide increased context and value from industrial data that can enable productivity and revenue gains.

 

Cloud-based IoT architecture for manufacturing gives executives, line managers and business analysts access to analytics that transform sensor and other machine-generated data into real-time operational intelligence. IoT brings the visibility, flexibility, interoperability and intelligence required to unlock the full potential of manufacturing investments, leading to significant operational performance improvements.

 

Cloud-based IoT architecture leverages three of the most compelling current technology trends to unlock the potential of the IoT – big data analytics and cloud computing, as well as the Internet of Things.

 

With millions of electronic devices deployed around manufacturing and industries like oil and gas and mining, the capacity of organizations to conduct more efficient operations by gathering and analyzing data is critical. The willingness of organizations to deploy networking products and applications to capture and analyze that data will depend on how efficiently these networking solutions can be deployed and maintained and the expected benefits to be derived in doing so. IoT on a cloud platform aims to develop and market machine-to-machine (M2M) networking solutions at price points that can provide customers with a demonstrable return on investment.

The iRAP report titled ‘Internet of Things (IoT) – Cloud Platform for Industrial and Manufacturing Sector’ focuses on usage and spending on implementation of IoT cloud platforms in three specific identified core areas – digital manufacturing as per industry 4.0 standard; asset efficiency and optimum utilization; and optimization of the supply chain of components. The report examines dollar spending in 2014 on five core technology components of IoT cloud architecture – hardware, software, telecommunication, services and analytic solutions. The report includes forecasts for 2019 and analyses growth patterns in targeted core areas. The study also provides extensive quantification of the many important facets of market developments in the emerging markets of IoT cloud platform complied sensors, actuators, application hardware, communication providers, semiconductor components, microcontrollers, data centers, data analyst software and application software.

 

According to the report, global spending on IoT cloud platforms specific to these targeted areas of industry was valued at $80 billion in 2014, and is projected to increase to $358 billion by 2019 with a CAGR of 35%.

GLOBAL MARKET FOR POWER AND DISTRIBUTION TRANSFORMERS IS EXPECTED TO REACH $63,500 MILLION BY 2019.

 

Transformers are a vital link to the entire supply chain for electric power, from generation to transmission to distribution networks.

In the last decade, several new developments have taken place in the power and distribution transformers industry. As the original domestic, country-based networks have been built out and matured, markets have opened up and been deregulated in the western world to promote competition and efficient interconnections and creation of regional networks and markets. This evolution led to a change in the relationship between transformer manufacturers and buyers, from a local to a more global perspective, with a greater focus on economics on both sides. As a result, manufacturers also had to become more global, leading to consolidation and concentration of the industry. A very rapid build-out of manufacturing capacity occurred, particularly in Asia and South America, causing a substantial overcapacity at the end of the period, with new imbalances and instabilities in material prices. Multinationals, with global positions and common technologies emerged as a major force during this period.

 

According to a new report published by iRAP Inc., ‘Power and Distribution Transformers – Technologies, Materials, Applications, New Developments, Industry Structure and Global Markets’ the global market reached to about $41,560 million in 2014, and it is estimated to increase to $63,500 million by 2019 at a CAGR of 8.8 % per year from 2014 to 2019. China has the largest market share followed by the US, Europe, India and Japan.

 

Key drivers for future transformer market development include an increase in electricity demand in developing countries, replacement of old electric power equipment in matured economies, and a boost for high-voltage power transformers and capital expenditure in the power sector worldwide. In addition, the adoption of energy-efficiency standards in developed markets such as Europe and the United States, as well as in emerging markets such as China and India, are expected to create demand for new, more efficient electricity equipment, including power transformers. Also, new efficient transformer designs using amorphous magnetic materials for cores will become increasingly preferred because they can cut down iron losses and noise and demonstrate longer functional life. Utilities are demanding compliance to higher efficiency requirements in distribution transformers. Manufacturers have responded by tailoring their products to the energy evaluation factors specified by customers, so that it is now possible to purchase a high-cost, high-efficiency transformer or a unit with a lower first cost and lesser efficiency.

 

These developments have created a need to make a proper analysis of the technological and business issues, trends in manufacturing, markets and foreign competition. In addition, there was a need to look at the increasing demand, especially from China and India, and changes in industry structure and market trends.

 

The large global transformer industry results from the interplay between participating agencies at local, national and international levels, such as the bulk buyers of power transformers (PTs) consisting of independent power producers (IPPs), turnkey project construction companies, top utilities/power distribution companies, and electrical contractors engaged in transformer purchase. The industry also involves a large number of stamping/lamination fabricators and a mix of well-known multinational companies for PTs as well as many small/medium industrial units specialized in assembly and testing of distribution transformers (DTs).

SOFT MAGNETIC MATERIALS – TECHNOLOGIES, MATERIALS, DEVICES, NEW DEVELOPMENTS, INDUSTRY STRUCTURE AND GLOBAL MARKETS

 

 

Magnets are important and highly sophisticated engineering materials that play a fundamental role in many of the electrical and electronic systems that serve modern society.

 

Magnets might be divided into two classes – permanent and soft magnetic materials. Permanent magnetic materials are those which are constantly magnetized, while soft magnetic materials exhibit magnetic properties only when subjected to a magnetic field. Soft magnetic materials play a key role in power distribution, make possible the conversion between electrical and mechanical energy, underlie microwave communication, and provide both the transducers and the active storage material for data storage in information systems.

 

Soft magnetic materials exhibit magnetic properties only when they are subject to a magnetizing force such as the magnetic field created when current is passed through the wire surrounding a soft magnetic core. Soft ferromagnetic materials are generally associated with electrical circuits where they are used to amplify the flux generated by the electric currents. These materials can be used in alternating current (AC) as well as direct current (DC) electrical circuits.

 

STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES

 

Today, energy loss (in the magnetic cores) in transmission and electrical appliances such as motors and transformers accounts for 3.4% of overall electricity consumption in the world. Magnetic iron-silicon steels are mostly used for such applications; 96% are used in motors and transformers. However, they are already nearing saturation in terms of magnetic performance, and they will be replaced in critical applications where size and thermal performance are critical. Worldwide consumption of electrical energy might be able to be reduced significantly by the application of superior soft magnetic materials, such as innovative high-Fe soft magnetic materials with a self-organizing nanoheteromorphous structure, in electrical transport and various electrical appliances.

This iRAP report has been prepared to highlight the many new developments in the soft magnetic materials industry. Many of the market segments are mature, while others are growing at faster rates. Developing economies such as China and India are also emerging as growth engines for many industries that use soft magnetic materials. These developments have created a need for a formal analysis of the technological and business issues, trends in manufacturing, markets, and competition between countries and regions in this market. Therefore, we have updated technology and market trends in this new study.

 

This report has been prepared to:

 

  • provide an overview of the various soft magnetic materials, their production technologies and applications;

 

  • identify the technological and business issues related to the commercial production of soft magnetic materials;

 

  • understand the inter-material competition among the various soft magnetic materials;

 

  • analyze competition among companies within each of the soft magnetic materials market segments;

 

  • determine the current size and future growth of the global markets for soft magnetic materials; and

 

  • identify and profile all global producers and suppliers of soft magnetic materials.

 

 

CONTRIBUTIONS OF THE STUDY

 

iRAP’’s technical and economic study covers technology and industry overviews, materials, current and emerging production methods, new developments in materials and processing techniques, business and technology issues, current and emerging applications, and an extensive market analysis. Current size and future growth of global markets are estimated for 2014 and 2019.

 

FORMAT AND SCOPE

For each material segment, the report provides an analysis of material and product types in the category, processing technologies, properties, applications, new developments and patents, the industry structure, global markets and competition.

 

The qualitative and quantitative judgments in this report contribute to the current knowledge of soft magnetic materials, their manufacturing technologies, applications, and markets. New efficiency standards in most countries for transformers and motors have resulted in fast adoption of amorphous steel in the last five years. This study has carved out all these new developments and new market opportunities.

 

The report further provides profiles of companies producing and supplying electrical steels, cold rolled motor lamination steels, amorphous steels and profiles of those producing and supplying soft ferrites, nickel iron alloys, powder iron, and other materials (silicon iron, cobalt iron and solenoid quality stainless steels).

  • importers and suppliers of soft magnetic materials; and
  • users of electrical steel, cold rolled lamination steel, amorphous steel, soft ferrites, nickel-iron alloys, iron-cobalt alloys, solenoid-quality stainless steel, etc.

 

REPORT SUMMARY

 

Soft magnetic materials play a fundamental role in many of the electrical and electronic systems that characterize modern society. These materials are used in applications such as electrical power generation and transmission, electric motors, receipt of radio signals and microwaves, relays, solenoids, magnetic shielding and electromagnets. The properties of the materials used are being continuously improved.

 

The global soft magnetic material industry is a mature industry. However, a new energy paradigm, consisting of greater reliance on renewable energy sources and increased concern for energy efficiency in the total energy life-cycle, has accelerated research into energy-related technologies. New improved materials with higher energy efficiency have been demonstrated for amorphous and nanocrystalline soft magnetic materials. While amorphous steel has been used extensively as the core material for transformers and motors, the emerging nanocrystalline core material has even higher efficiency and will see much higher growth in the future.

 

MAJOR FINDINGS:

 

  • According to the new study, the 2014 global market for soft magnetic materials stood at about $45.4 billion, and it is estimated to reach $66.6 billion by 2019. The compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) is expected to be 7.9% from 2014 to 2019.

 

  • The steel segment, which consists of electrical steel, cold-rolled lamination steel, and amorphous steel, has the largest market share.

 

  • In terms of dollar value, amorphous steel is expected to have the fastest growth rate followed by soft ferrites and other steels.

 

  • In terms of regional demand, Asia’s demand for electrical steel has increased astronomically. It is the only region in the world that increased consumption of electrical steel from 2008 and will see growth to 2019.

 

  • Electrical steel is of great importance in China and India due to increasing energy consumption, concomitant with their strong economic growth. Not only are China and India putting new transformers into use, they are also replacing older transformers to improve grid reliability. Both are seeking higher efficiency, grain-oriented steels to reduce energy losses.

 

  • In terms of industry structure, China now is the largest soft magnetic materials producer in the world due to its low cost, highly trained labor force and vast raw materials.

ELECTRONIC THERMAL MANAGEMENT – TECHNOLOGIES, MATERIALS, DEVICES, NEW DEVELOPMENTS, INDUSTRY STRUCTURE AND GLOBAL MARKETS

 

“Thermal management” denotes the array of problem-solving design tools and material technologies that systems manufacturers apply to regulate the unwanted heat caused by the normal functioning of an electronic system. Increasing power densities and decreasing transistor dimensions are hallmarks of modern computer chips. Both trends are increasing the thermal management challenge within the chip and surrounding packaging, as well as accelerating research progress on high conductivity materials.

 

Dramatic changes are underway in the computer, telecommunications and consumer electronics industries. There is a trend toward systems “convergence,” combining computer, telecommunications and consumer system functions all into one system. There is also a trend toward micro-miniaturization and microsystem technologies integrating digital, optical, radio frequency and microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) devices. Microsystem packaging is at the heart of all of these products, since it is this technology that provides the system integration in addition to controlling the size, performance, reliability and cost of the final microsystem.

 

High-density packaging has been the trend in electronic circuits during the last decade, and that will continue for at least the next five years. In 2013, a typical megaprocessor could pack a staggering 41 million transistors onto a single chip. Running flat out, that chip would dissipate 130 watts of heat – more than a bright household light bulb – from an area the size of a postage stamp.

 

The trend line of the thermal management industry aligns with the developments of technology in the semiconductor, microprocessor and computer industries. For every advance in performance of these systems, there is a corresponding increase in the operating heat generated by the system. To simply say, however, that demands for thermal management products have increased as the requirements of applications have increased, does not do justice to the unique character of this industry. It is probably more accurate to state that the development of thermal management as an industry is the result of a synergy of solutions constantly engineered to manage excess heat in today’s electronic systems.

 

 

Study Goal and Objectives

 

The goal of this iRAP report is to provide an up-to-date analysis of recent developments and current trends in the global thermal management marketplace. The identification of significant drivers of revenue growth in specific product categories is an additional aim. The objective of this kind of systematic research is to quantify the projected impact of the forces — from within and from outside — at work on this industry today.

 

Products in this report have been grouped into four segments – hardware, software, interfaces and substrates. Product sub-segments within the hardware segment include heat sinks, fans and blowers, fan sinks, heat pipes, and cold plates – chosen because they are established technologies and represent revenue markets of significant size. The software segment focuses on modeling and analysis of the thermal characteristics of an electronic system. While the interface product line primarily attaches the heat sink to the system, several other product sub-segments in this technology are being applied to dissipate heat in applications where there is no room for a conventional heat sink. The categories of interfaces covered in this segment are thermal grease, thermal compounds, thermal pads, adhesive films and tapes, and epoxy. Finally, the report looks at substrates, focusing on two emerging package and component level products, thermally enhanced packages and heat spreaders.

 

Besides targeting the conventional market of thermal management products and solutions related to electronics usage in computers, telecomm, automotive, consumer, medical/office and industrial/military equipment, the report addresses electronics used in new applications such as high-power LEDs, power circuits used in renewal power (wind and solar) stations, high-performance embedded computing (HPEC) working at more than 5GHz frequency, and the growing industrial usage of electronics in laser machining and industrial robots.

 

The report also briefly discusses recent research work done on cooling solutions to address complex heat issues arising in commercialization of new three-dimensional integrated circuit (3DIC) chips intended for use in computers, tablets, cellular phones, set-top boxes, LCD monitors, digital cameras and video game consoles.

 

Reasons For Doing this Study

 

Development within the thermal industry is one of the most interesting sub-plots of the rapid innovation in the high-tech area. As the drive to achieve higher levels of device integration while reducing cost, size and complexity continues, the issue of managing heat and power dissipation has become very significant. Economic and market forces also are important factors. Consequently, current trends (market and technology), as well as potential breakthroughs in the near- and long-term future, become very important.

 

Contributions of the Study

 

The information presented here is for suppliers participating in the thermal management market with a vital interest in the market potential of a specific technology in one of the product segment markets. This study should also be of interest to companies in the electronic materials, software and other industries, that have an interest in the potential of their products in a thermal management application. In addition, because of this report’s business focus, it should be of use to executives and business managers as an up-to-the-minute guide to current conditions that are expected to be significant in tomorrow’s markets.

 

Format and Scope

 

The scope of this report is broad, and covers several product areas. The individual materials, hardware and software product segments are presented in terms of market size and revenue trends. The revenue forecasts are explained in terms of the key market issue for a specific product segment, and are projected for five years from 2013 to 2018.

GLOBAL MARKET FOR THERMAL MANAGEMENT PRODUCTS IS EXPECTED TO REACH $15.56 BILLION BY 2018.

The thermal management industry is moving toward comprehensive solutions to cool electronics and paving the way for the electronics industry to develop high-performance applications. As a result, the dynamic in this market has not been one where there is a move toward a single technology or product that replaces others. The tendency is for systems designers to look at the entire problem and evaluate multiple options and combinations for a solution.

According to a recently published report from iRAP, Inc., Electronic Thermal Management – Technology, Materials, Devices, New Developments, Industry Structure and Global Markets, the world market for thermal management products is predicted to grow from about $8.8 billion in 2013 to $15.56 billion by 2018, at an average annual growth rate (CAGR) of 12.1%.

“Thermal management” denotes the array of problem-solving design tools and material technologies that systems manufacturers apply to regulate the unwanted heat caused by the normal functioning of an electronic system. Increasing power densities and decreasing transistor dimensions are hallmarks of modern computer chips. Both trends are increasing the thermal management challenge within the chip and surrounding packaging, as well as accelerating research progress on high conductivity materials.

The trend line of the thermal management industry aligns with the development of technology in the semiconductor, microprocessor and computer industries. For every advance in performance of these systems, there is a corresponding increase in the operating heat generated by the system. It is probably more accurate to state that the development of thermal management as an industry is the result of a synergy of solutions constantly engineered to manage excess heat in today’s electronic systems.

There are four main segments in thermal management technologies – hardware, software, interfaces, and substrates. According to the new iRAP report, the hardware segment maintained its number one position with largest share of the market in 2013. This is followed by substrates, thermal interface materials and the software segment.

The overview of end-user trends shows the largest market in 2013 was for computers, followed by telecommunications, industrial/military industries, medical/office equipment, automotive and consumer products.

The thermal management industry is made up of companies from several industries that supply cooling solutions to manufacturers of electronic systems. The industry itself is structured around the applications that require thermal management. It is made up of component producers, specialty chemical companies, consultants and programmers.

PLATINUM GROUP METALS RECYCLING TO REACH $9 BILLION BY 2018

 

According to a new market research report published by Innovative Research and Products, titled “Global Market for Platinum, Palladium and Other Platinum Group Metals Recycling – A Global Technology, Industry and Market Analysis”, the global recycling market for these metals is expected to undergo about 8.2% market growth. Worldwide growth has the potential to expand from $6 billion in 2013 to about $9 billion by 2018.

 

The platinum group metals (PGMs), platinum, palladium and rhodium, have significant catalytic properties. Additionally, platinum metals possess natural beauty which makes them a valuable jewelry item in many parts of the world. Future demand for PGMs is expected to be heavily influenced by the automobile industry, while jewelry demand for platinum is expected to see significant growth among the key economies of Asia, such as China. Demand for platinum metals in industrial applications is also expected to rise along with the growing global economy.

 

The platinum group metals (PGMs) recycling industry has sustained growth in the last decade and is likely to continue this growth into the next decade because of the increasing value of PGMs and an expansion of technologies which depend on their physical properties. Economic growth in China, India Brazil and elsewhere has fostered a global increase in the use of automobiles, electronic devices and jewelry, all of which use recycled platinum metals. Additionally, within the industry, there has been growing innovation over the past decade in the technologies of PGM recycling.

 

Rising PGM prices which have occurred in recent decades have led to an increase in the recycling of these metals, which are used in automobile catalytic converters and electronic components. The recycling of PGMs usually starts with scrap refiners that collect scrap material such as waste catalytic converters and electronic parts that contain PGMs to extract the valuable metals. Other refiners usually buy the recovered PGM material to further upgrade the quality of the recycled material.

 

The demand for recycled platinum metals is expected to continue to increase in the coming years as new technologies which rely on the catalytic properties of PGMs, such as fuel cells, become more widely used the world over.

 

According to the new iRAP report titled ‘Recycling of Platinum, Palladium and other Platinum Group of Metals: A Global Technology, Industry and Market Analysis’, the Asian region offers the greatest opportunities for growth, a trend that is expected to continue through 2018. Asia is expected to exhibit growth that exceeds some of the world’s most vibrant markets in the Americas and Europe by expanding at a rate of approximately 9.2% annually.

 

The Americas recycled platinum metals market, led by the U.S., is expected to grow at a good rate in the coming years, while at the same time being one of the world’s key sources of recycled platinum metals. Between the years of 2013 to 2018, demand in the Americas will increase by a rate of some 7.5%.

 

This study also reveals that Europe will likely experience positive growth, estimated at 7.7%. The magnitude of the demand for these recycled precious metals in Europe in the year 2018 is expected to be significantly greater than the current European community market size. The Middle East and Africa are also emerging recycling market for PGMs.
