The major applications of ballistic composites

Steadily, one can observe that, the major applications of ballistic composites are vehicle armor, body armor, and helmets & face protection. There is a high demand for ballistic composites in vehicle armor as these composites are used in the manufacture of vehicle armor, offers the vehicles with high level protection against ballistic threats from bullets, missiles, and other ammunition. The light weight property of the composites helps in reduction of the weight of military vehicles, providing ease and convenience in mobility.

The ballistic composites market by matrix type

For those who are unfamiliar, the ballistic composites market by matrix type includes polymer matrix, polymer-ceramic matrix, and metal matrix types. The global ballistic composites market by matrix type is driven by polymer matrix in terms of both, value and volume. According to Research and Markets, there is a high demand for polymer matrix for various applications such as helmets, and body vests, among others due to their unique properties such as low in weight, high friction, temperature resistance properties along with high toughness and impact & flexural strength.

The global ballistic composites market segmented

The global ballistic composites market is segmented into fiber type, matrix type, application, and region. The ballistic composites market, by fiber type is further segmented into aramid fiber, UHMWPE fiber, and S-Glass fiber. According Research and Markets, in 2015, aramid fiber had the largest market share in terms of value and volume owing to the high demand from helmets, vests, and shields applications. The firm also reveals that, the global ballistic composites market is projected to reach USD 1.80 Billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 7.12%, from 2016 to 2021. The increasing demand for ballistic composites in personal protection due to its light weight and high strength properties is a major reason for the growth of the global ballistic composites market.

Robots in pharmaceutical manufacturing

The most interesting when it comes to robots in pharmaceutical manufacturing, is to see that, robots in pharmaceutical manufacturing bring: high speed, accuracy, ability to track and trace, error-free operation, fewer accidents, and better utilization of the floor space. According to Research and Markets, the Pharmaceutical Robots Market is projected to reach USD 119.5 Million by 2021 from USD 64.4 Million in 2016, at a CAGR of 13.2%. The firm also reveals that, the cost of a cartesian robot is comparatively less as compared to the other types of traditional pharmaceutical robots available in the market. In fact, these robots are easier to program and use less floor space.

Fog computing in accident and traffic information, healthcare

For those who are unfamiliar, fog computing provides accident and traffic information to the respective authorities and thus enables to respond more quickly in emergencies. Fog computing also provides management of traffic which reduces travel duration. By fog computing, healthcare cloud offer better data storage and access to necessary information.

Fog computing market application segment have wide sub segments

Fog computing market application segment have wide sub segments such as building and home automation, smart manufacturing, smart energy, smart cities, smart grid, transportation and logistics, connected health and security & emergence. Fog computing provides real time analytics and informed decision on driving patterns. Fog computing reduces the amount of data to be transferred to the cloud storage, as it provide cloud nodes. Cameras equipped with edge computing are capable of analyzing video feeds in real time from cloud nodes and send only relevant data to cloud when required.

Fog Computing in its current emerging landscapes

For those who are unfamiliar, Fog Computing can be defined as a computing infrastructure which is decentralized and resources & application services are distributed logically from the data sources to the cloud. According to Research and Markets, Fog computing size in 2016 was approximately $9.3 million. The growing adoption of internet of things globally is increasing the global fog computing market. The firm also reveals that, the growing demand of real-time interaction with incoming data and the limited bandwidth availability are driving the fog computing market.

Awareness around Blockchain, 5G, Indoor Location, and Autonomous Vehicle Solutions within U.S. Enterprises

If it is clear that, emerging technologies including Blockchain, AI, 5G, Indoor Location, and Autonomous Vehicle Solutions have been positioned as fundamental to the evolution of the enterprise landscape, most businesses remain not aware of the stakes related to these technologies. In its 1Q 2017 survey of 455 U.S.-based companies in nine vertical markets (retail, healthcare, transportation, logistics, automotive, manufacturing, utilities, consumer packaged goods, and government), ABI Research finds that: 93% of organizations had no awareness of blockchain.62% of companies had no familiarity with 5G, and only 37% were just beginning to embark on early investigation processes.Only 7% of companies were planning or had autonomous vehicle solutions in play.Despite indoor location being a key component of many IoT solutions in vertical markets, such as retail, only 22% of organizations surveyed were assessing or planning Indoor location solutions.
