Global Biodiesel Market Industry Leaders & New Revenue Pockets

Posted by MarketsandMarkets on Jun 4, 2019 4:10:36 PM

The global biodiesel market is projected to reach USD 41.18 billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 3.8% from 2016 to 2021. Biodiesel is a used as a fuel in pure form B100 or by forming blends with conventional petroleum diesel. These blends include B2, B5, and B20 that contain 2%, 5%, and 20% biodiesel, respectively. Biodiesel is environmental-friendly, non-toxic, and readily biodegradable fuel, as it is produced from natural elements such as vegetable oils, animal fats, and greases. It finds usage in end-use industries, such as automotive, power generation, marine, railway, agriculture, and mining. The growing demand for biodiesel from these end-use industries is expected to lead to its increased demand in the biodiesel market.

Natural Refrigerants is gaining momentum over Traditional Refrigerants

Posted by MarketsandMarkets on May 28, 2019 3:34:17 PM

Refrigerants are defined as chemicals that act as a heat transfer medium in cooling equipment. They function on the principle of transferring heat by absorbing heat at low temperature and pressure and releasing it at high temperature and pressure. The market for refrigerants is expected to exhibit steady growth throughout the forecast period. The market in the developed economies of Europe and North America is expected to witness slow growth due to changing trends regarding restriction in the use of fluorocarbons under regulations of the Montreal Protocol. Hydrocarbons (HC) refrigerants are expected to gain importance in North America due to the rapid shift from fluorocarbons to HC-based refrigerants. The market in several growing economies of Asia-Pacific and the Middle East & Africa is expected to witness high growth owing to increasing spending power, growth in infrastructure industry, and growth of manufacturing of consumer appliances.

Impact of Recycled Carbon Fibers and development of new production technologies on the Carbon Fiber Market

Posted by MarketsandMarkets on May 22, 2019 7:20:00 PM

Carbon fiber was first discovered in the 1970’s when extensive research was happening to find alternative materials for metals. Initially, carbon fibers were not widely accepted due to its limited compression strength and high price. However, today, a lot of developments have been made on carbon fiber, and its use is extensive in various end-use industries such as aerospace & defense, automotive, sporting goods, wind energy, marine, civil engineering, pipe & tank, electrical & electronics, oil & gas, 3D printing, high-speed rail, hydrogen gas storage, and others. Carbon fiber is a long, thin strand of material made from carbon. The carbon content is more than 90% for standard modulus industrial grade and almost 100% for high modulus aerospace grade.  Carbon fiber is produced from raw materials such as PAN, pitch, rayon, or other organic fibers.

Lightweight metal alloys – The future of the transportation industry

Posted by MarketsandMarkets on Apr 11, 2019 12:22:56 PM

The pressing need of the transportation industry to produce lightweight vehicles with superior functional capabilities is driving the lightweight metal alloys penetration in the industry. CAFÉ regulations and growing demand for electric vehicles are pushing the automakers to adopt lightweight solutions. Aluminum and magnesium alloys are the most commonly used lightweight metals, followed by titanium and beryllium. Lightweight material can drastically reduce the overall weight of the vehicle, reduce CO2 emissions, improve fuel consumption, and are completely recyclable.

Vital strategies and technologies for efficient and effective water management

Posted by MarketsandMarkets on Apr 1, 2019 4:23:06 PM

Water is vital for both industrial and municipal use. The technology for water treatment in the industrial sector differs fundamentally from that in the municipal sector as functions vary as per specific needs of each sector. In the industrial sector, demand for water treatment varies between industries and location of the establishment. Highly customized and integrative technologies are used in treating water in the industrial sector. On the other hand, municipal water treatment requires established techniques and processes to purify water and fulfill public demand.
