Growth in e-commerce industry in Europe, a little bit explained

I have a pleasure to recall that, according to Technavio, the e-commerce industry in Europe is growing annually at 11.5% since 2015, with over 55% of the revenue generated by the e-commerce industry in Europe coming from Western European countries that include Germany, France, Italy, and Spain. 
I can also note that, E-commerce customers seek fast delivery services and reduced delivery costs. This has resulted in express delivery service companies in Europe to adopt new methods to improvise their resource planning and last mile operations and ensure that customers get their parcels within the stipulated time.

Self-optimising network (SON) solutions to service 4.5G and 5G migration

From improved revenue, flexibility and reduced costs, to the name a few, stakes for Self-optimising network (SON) solutions impacting 4.5G and 5G migration are real and steadily well-appropriated, despite the fact that, deployments beyond very basic use cases have been limited. For those who are unfamiliar, I can recall that, Self-optimising network (SON) solutions have been hailed as the route to efficient, flexible mobile networks in which manual processes are automated to support massive scale.
Survey from Research and Markets indicates that, most mobile network operators (MNOs) have reduced their 1-to-2-year investment expectations as they wait for more functionality. The firm also notes that, Vendors need to kickstart a new wave of investment in Self-optimising network (SON) technology by making it a platform that can improve revenue, not just reduce costs, and become the brains of the new network.

Nanosciences are in high demand

Very interesting to see that, Nanosensors are in high demand due to their advantages such as low power consumption and price. 
Nanosensors enhance productivity. The adoption of these sensors in industries to facilitate automation of several processes is on the rise. The use of these sensors reduces the need for manual labor and the time required for decision-making. 
Nanosensors also generate data collected in the Internet framework, which is sent to IT systems for data analytics. The results of this analytics play a key role in making successful business cases through process improvements.

Nanotechnology popular in a number of industries

Increasingly, one can observe that, the rise in the demand for miniaturization of electronic products, coupled with the increased consumer demand for smaller and more powerful devices at affordable prices, has made nanotechnology popular in a number of industries.  In effect, both private and public sectors are investing heavily in R&D to tap the potential benefits of nanotechnology. 
For those who are unfamiliar, I can recall that, Nanotechnology has the ability to influence the atoms, with an objective to enhance their core properties and characteristics. The technology makes use of nanoscience to build an ecosystem of nanotechnology.

The use of nanotechnology, especially nanosensors in healthcare diagnostics

It is exciting to view that, Healthcare companies are looking forward to developing efficient and accurate diagnostics systems using nanotechnology. 
In effect, the use of nanotechnology, especially nanosensors in healthcare diagnostics, facilitates speeding up of the diagnostics process, thereby complementing the primary goal of diagnostics to identify a medical problem in the shortest span of time.

“A major advantage of using nanosensors for healthcare diagnostics is that they are composed of carbon nanotubes, which are 100,000 times smaller than a strand of hair. This makes it highly convenient for these sensors to be implanted into the body without causing any inconvenience to the patient,” said Chetan Mohan, a lead sensors research analyst at Technavio.

The rapid growth in the global nanosensors market explained

The rapid growth in the global nanosensors market can inter alia be attributed to the high demand for nanosensors in the healthcare and defense industries. 

According to Technavio, technological advances in the healthcare industry and the rise in the demand for sophisticated healthcare services such as precision diagnostics will fuel the demand for nanosensors during the forecast period 2017-2021.
