European Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure Market Becoming Increasingly Self Sustaining, Says Frost & Sullivan

leave a comment »

Market to be bolstered by improved strategic access to charging stations and development of robust business models

LONDON, May 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — The electric vehicle (EV) charging industry in Europe is in the midst of transformation, with the focus on ramping up EV charging infrastructure for the rapidly expanding EV market. Significant growth is on the cards as participants from various verticals such as industrial automation, utilities, parking operators and infrastructure operators enter the fray. This development is also set to help the EV market wean itself off government subsidies and incentives, while becoming increasingly self-sustaining.

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (http://www.automotive.frost.com), Strategic Technology and Market Analysis of Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure in Europe, finds that the market for EV charging stations is expected to grow rapidly from 7,250 charging stations in 2012 to over 3.1 million by 2019 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 113.3 per cent over the period 2012-2019. France, Germany, Norway and the United Kingdom are expected to lead the market due to the high adoption rates of EVs in these countries.

The availability of charging infrastructure plays a vital role in ensuring that EVs maintain their growth momentum. This, in turn, means easy access to charging stations to eliminate range anxiety and ensure that EV users have the freedom to drive for longer periods of time.

“Frost & Sullivan research indicates that over 3.1 million charging stations are likely to be installed across Europe by 2019,” notes Frost & Sullivan Automotive & Transportation Research Associate Prajyot Sathe. “Mode 2 charging is expected to account for over 64 per cent of the market share as nearly 83 per cent of charging is expected to happen in residences or in a location where the vehicle will be parked for 8-10 hours daily.”

Mode 3 charging will be popular in public locations. However, DC charging will be installed in strategic locations where vehicles can be charged in less than 30 minutes. Inductive charging will also be popular, but is likely to be adopted only post- 2014.

Even as the market picks up steam, a major speed bump will be inability to provide long range in a single charge and charging times varying from 30 minutes to 10 hours.

“Through continuous R&D, market participants are expected to introduce innovative solutions that address these issues,” says Sathe. “Emerging trends, for instance, are focusing on AC fast charging which will charge vehicles in 2-3 hours, representing the best use case in locations such as cinema halls and shopping malls.”

Apart from technical issues, another challenge relates to the as yet ambiguous roles of utility companies, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), and charging infrastructure providers in the market. Moreover, multiple rules and regulations related to the electricity usage and charges across EU means that a standardised business model is yet to be adopted. Developing a dynamic business model will, therefore, be a key requirement if the market is to continue on its upward trajectory.

“Improving access through building of essential charging infrastructure in strategic public and private locations will overcome the challenge of range anxiety,” concludes Sathe. “Technology advancement that reduces charging time while improving reliability, safety and robustness of the electric charging system will encourage EV adoption.”

Focus on Efficiency Drives Development of Asia-Pacific Data Center Cooling Solutions Market, Finds Frost & Sullivan

leave a comment »

Customers opt for solutions with reduced total cost of ownership

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, May 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Growing demand for internet applications, virtualization and online delivery systems has, in turn, lent momentum to the data center cooling solutions center market in Asia-Pacific. Emerging best practices, including greater focus on efficiency, will continue to aid market development in the region.

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (http://www.frost.com/prod/servlet/svcg.pag/EGPB), Asia-Pacific Data Center Cooling Solutions Market, finds that the market generated revenues of more than US$1.2 billion in 2011 and estimates this to reach US$2.17 billion in 2018.

Digital transactions and online hosting services are gaining pace, and the need to network globally for better process and logistics management has heightened, speeding up the establishment of data centers in Asia-Pacific. Hence, cooling system suppliers are investing in new product development to keep up with these fast-changing requirements and thereby stimulate sale volumes.

“Data centers are likely to face an energy deficit owing to escalating digitization and cloud computing, and green data center cooling solutions that reduce carbon emissions are becoming popular,” saidFrost & Sullivan Energy and Environment Senior Research Analyst Amit Kumar Singh. “Customer evaluation of cooling solutions based on total cost of ownership rather than purely on initial capital costs further highlights the importance of efficiency.”

The expansion of corporate and government networks to meet the challenges of the ever-widening scale of business and operation, along with the explosion in social networking, will increase the use of data centers, and consequently boost cooling systems market growth. Data center operators from across the globe are relocating their data centers to the Asia-Pacific, further contributing to the market’s scope.

Regulations on global warming and carbon emissions are likely to compel data center providers to replace existing systems with more efficient cooling solutions, adding to market revenues in the region. However, these upgrades will be limited to a certain degree due to the high capital costs. Potential customer’s preference for traditional standard cooling solutions, and reluctance to commit to the sizeable investments necessary for new more efficient cooling systems, pose another challenge.

Long, drawn-out bureaucratic processes delay equipment purchase and implementation, dampening the demand. The slow construction market in Asia-Pacific has weakened demand from vertical markets, further affecting cooling infrastructure expansion.

“Cooling solution providers must partner with IT vendors to broaden business opportunities, build comprehensive solutions, and widen their reach,” concluded Singh. “Creating a global product design team will enable cooling equipment vendors to consistently develop sought-after products that comply with the industry’s highest efficiency benchmarks.”

Frost & Sullivan Applauds AMVONET for Cost-Effectively Offering Online Learning and Collaboration on a Single Platform

leave a comment »

— AMVONET enables on demand and real-time collaboration and delivery of educational content between users using AMVONET Manage (LMS), AMVONET Connect, Creative GUI and Publishing Tool

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., May 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Based on its recent analysis of the learning collaboration platforms market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes AMVONET with the 2013 North America Frost & Sullivan Award for New Product Innovation. AMVONET has developed an innovative and unique learning collaboration platform that can be of significant value to today’s schools and businesses. It stands out for its ability to integrate multiple functional systems, including its Learning Management System (LMS); a customized version of Moodle (AMVONET Manage); Live Sync Classroom (AMVONET Connect); and its interactive content creating, editing and publishing capability (AMVONET Publish).

AMVONET facilitates a unique, real-time publishing system where rendering and upload is not required and content is immediately available for real-time delivery. It has a module to provide immediate live technical support for end users from inside of AMVONET. Its graphical user interface (GUI) and comprehensive integration sets it apart from any other platforms with its distinct navigation and tools.

“The platform, with all the functional systems, leverages Moodle LMS, a world-leading LMS builder, to create the AMVONET Manage module,” said Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Sathya. “AMVONET has perfected its technology to the point where unprecedented integration of Moodle LMS is possible with the synchronous live classroom and content authoring application.”

Competing solutions provide the management systems and synchronous live class as two entities, whereas AMVONET integrates them on a single platform.

The AMVONET Publish tool includes a patent-pending functionality, interactive Points (iPoints), which allows course designers to program points of interactivity in their lesson recording by embedding any LMS activity and any World Wide Web resource into the final recording. Efficient utilization of Open Source Moodle and the inclusion of live collaboration and content interactivity solutions make AMVONET an ideal solution for various educational institutions.

Meanwhile, AMVONET Manage Bridge (moodle plugin) provides a single sign-on access to Moodle (that can be hosted by third party) and unprecedented integration of all of its activities and resources with AMVONET Connect and AMVONET Publish. Unlike AMVONET, competing solutions are rigged with excessive procedures that complicate their operation and add to user dissatisfaction.

“The GUI developed for the solution is extremely interactive, wherein the published content is perceived with an intuitive setup,” noted Sathya. “The interactive GUI-enabled live class renders the conventional support obsolete, as the live class totally incorporates every aspect covered under the live support functions. It also alleviates the need for maintaining a resource-exhaustive live support function separately.”

Realizing that such a comprehensive e-learning system will be a necessity in almost all modern digital education centers, AMVONET has focused its marketing efforts at institutions of Higher Education, K-12 schools as well as needs of corporate education and communication. In terms of market adoption, AMVONET aims to use resellers in various countries to create a wide network of AMVONET clients, while simultaneously making AMVONET accessible to new prospects in its global target market.

Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has developed an innovative element in a product by leveraging leading-edge technologies. The award recognizes the value-added features/benefits of the product and the increased ROI it offers customers, which, in turn, increases customer acquisition and overall market penetration potential.

Frost & Sullivan Best Practices awards recognize companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service and strategic product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis and extensive secondary research to identify best practices in the industry.

About AMVONET

Alliance, Ohio-based AMVONET has created a comprehensive, integrated software suite consisting of an e-learning management system, a live web-conferencing and virtual classroom solution, and a content-authoring application. In addition to the K-12 and higher education markets, AMVONET offers distance-learning business and healthcare solutions for continuing education, corporate training, online collaboration and interactive recordings.

Lithium Ion Batteries Poised for Substantial Growth in Dynamic Asia-Pacific Market, finds Frost & Sullivan

leave a comment »

Market participants look to keep pace with the rapid changes in the market by innovating

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, May 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — The market for lithium ion batteries (LiBs) is experiencing significant changes across consumer, automotive and industrial segments. One of the major contributing factors is the price reduction of LiBs due to industry over-capacity and competition. The proliferation of new consumer gadgets and rapid strides taken by the battery industry to keep up will also give a strong boost to the market. Electric vehicles, which have been on the cusp of strong growth for a while now, are expected to help triple the automotive LiB market. The industrial LiB segment too will grow on the back of stationary energy storage applications.

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (http://www.frost.com/prod/servlet/svcg.pag/EGPB), Asia Pacific Lithium ion Batteries Market, finds that the market earned approximately US$2.21 billion in 2012 and estimates this to more than double to US$4.82 billion by 2017 due to the widening market and product scope.

New energy storage applications in electric vehicles, grid-connected stationary energy storage, and the higher energy requirements of new consumer gadgets are expected to alter market dynamics. The LiB market has to make the most of these changes and find usage in these application areas.

LiBs are the preferred energy sources for consumer gadgets such as phones, tablets, mp3 players, next-generation electrically propelled light motor vehicles, and many industrial and commercial applications. In emerging consumer applications such as smart phones and tablets, LiBs are likely to generate high volumes but require technology upgrades to grow faster.

Consumer gadgets like smart phones and ultrabooks are energy intensive; however battery technology has not kept pace with their growth. This has led to R&D for newer chemistries in industrial and automotive segments that might prove disruptive to the LiB market.

“Competing battery chemistries are posing a stiff challenge to LiBs, as applications are becoming increasingly demanding with respect to energy storage and discharge needs,” saidFrost & Sullivan Energy & Environmental Industry Analyst Vishal Narain T.

With expectations of strong market growth, the competitive intensity and the production capacity in the industry has dramatically increased. So, apart from infusing funds into R&D to improve battery performance, manufacturers are resorting to price cuts to stay competitive. They are also trying to increase product compatibility and decrease product prices to suit a wider gamut of applications.

“Patents offer a major competitive advantage in this technology-intensive market, where industry consolidation to gain technology and market advantage is a strong possibility,” noted Narain. “Technology battles leading to path-breaking products are anticipated to boost sales, reduce prices, and enhance volume demand.”

Location, context and behavior-specific real time event led marketing, driven by analytics will likely be the norm in the future.

Rajan Kohli, Vice President and Head Banking and Financial Services, Wipro Ltd. said, “Digital technologies, social media and the explosion of data are redefining customer engagement models. If we look at the marketing spend reported by the banks in our survey, traditional advertising represented just 55 per cent of the total marketing spend. The CMOs that we spoke with made it clear that the role of the CMO is changing as banks adapt to the development of new channels and capabilities.”

Wipro and Efma have created the first ever digital marketing capability index which helps benchmark the digital marketing capabilities of banks vis-à-vis the best in class. Only 13 per cent of the banks surveyed demonstrate the highest level of maturity in digital marketing. The index measures the maturity of the banks on eight different capabilities; assessments including a bank’s capability on data management, offer delivery, marketing processes and usage of analytics. The index also alludes to the fact that a majority of banks do not practise real-time event driven marketing and the ability to focus on personalization.

The study also revealed that social media was not yet a part of mainstream marketing and is still not considered a key customer interaction channel. In our survey, we discovered that social media efforts were mainly managed by the marketing department followed by the branding and communications team. Also for over 80 per cent of the banks surveyed, their social media spend was less than 500,000 Euros per annum.

Given the inevitable trend toward greater use of digital channels by consumers, the Wipro/Efma report recommends that banks should:

  • Consider how they expect customers to interact with the bank five years from now, and particularly how they envisage customers will buy financial products in the future;
  • Carefully assess the bank’s current digital marketing capabilities along the dimensions we have identified in this study to identify areas of weakness;
  • Develop a plan for investment in digital marketing capabilities which will ensure that the bank is in a position to get ahead of, or at least keep pace with, competitors and changing consumer behavior;
  • Monitor closely the developments in “big data” and where possible take the initial steps of testing some applications of the new technologies that are available.

Frost & Sullivan: U.S. Department of Defense Anti-Access/Area Denial Challenges are a Funding Priority

leave a comment »

— High levels of investment needed to ensure U.S. technological dominance

MOUNTAIN VIEW, California, May 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Anti-access/area denial (AA/AD) challenges require continued technology investment. Potential adversaries are expected to exploit the current U.S. dependence on satellites, unmanned vehicles, computer systems, and the global positioning system.

Frost & Sullivan (www.defense.frost.com) research finds that the AA/AD programs are budgeted for $57.47 billion in 2013 and estimates this to reach $61.00 billion in 2017.

If you are interested in more information on this study, please send an e-mail to Jeannette Garcia, Corporate Communications, at jeannette.garcia@frost.com, with your full name, company name, job title, telephone number, company e-mail address, company website, city, state and country.

Budget restrictions through 2017, especially for research, development, test and evaluation (RDT&E) will force difficult program prioritization and spending cut decisions. Budget requests, continuing resolutions, sequestration, defense strategy reviews, and operational drawdowns in Iraq and Afghanistan also contribute to a confusing and uncertain budget process.

The one area of general agreement seems to be that U.S. defense spending needs to be reduced.

“Most observers predict that Pentagon ‘efficiencies’ and ‘acquisition reform’ efforts will not be sufficient, and that hard decisions on ending some major programs and personnel cost reductions will be made,” said Frost & Sullivan Senior Industry Analyst Brad Curran.

New generations of missiles, stealth fighters, unmanned vehicles, submarines, and torpedoes deployed by potential adversaries have diminished the once dominant U.S. lead in weapons technology.

“The U.S. will need continued high levels of investment to make incremental improvements to current weapons, communications, sensors, and electronic warfare systems,” said Curran.
