DUBLIN, January 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Dublin - Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/c22s6z/independent) has announced the addition of the "Independent Lubricant Manufacturers Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends & Forecast, 2013 - 2019" report to their offering.

Independent lubricant manufacturers are not controlled by major oil companies and most do not have their own refineries. They procure base oils from major oil suppliers and petroleum companies and then process these oils with additives to produce lubricants. These lubricants are utilized in several industrial and automobile applications. Independent lubricant manufacturers commonly purchase raw materials from the open market (chemical and oleo-chemical industry). Independent lubricant manufacturers primarily focus on the manufacturing and marketing of lubricants followed and on specialties and niche business. Some of the independent lubricant manufacturers namely Southwestern Petroleum Corporation basically deals in manufacturing of heavy duty lubes. They supply lubricants and provide technical assistance for the metalworking fluid industry.
Besides having numerous advantages, lubricants are useful for wide range of applications in automotive and industrial end use sectors. Growing applications in the agriculture, mining and steel industry, increased automotive sales accompanied by growing support for bio-based lubricants are likely to fuel the lubricant demand in the coming years. Ongoing paradigm shift towards high precision technology over conventional methods is expected to boost the demand for independent lubricant manufacturers. Growing demand of automated machines in mining and agricultural segments has flooded the industrial lubricants demand. Growing necessity to minimize lag-time and raise production efficiency particularly in manufacturing industries is likely to impel the product demand in the coming five to six years. This in turn is expected to bolster the overall market growth over the forecast period. However, market growth is dampened due to fluctuation in mineral oil prices. The growing attractiveness of bio-based lubes is also expected to be pulled over by their high cost than mineral oil. As a result, the market is constrained by a couple of challenges.
Lubricants play a vital role primarily in the smooth operation of moving machine parts. Independent lubricant manufacturers are in some of the niche markets supplying heavy duty lubricants to most of the heavy industries including OEM car manufacturers. Most of the OEM car manufacturers have signed agreements with independent lubricant manufacturers including BMW, Audi, Porsche, and Mercedes. New opportunities are expected to be carved with signing of new agreements. Automotive product segment is estimated to be one of the rapidly growing segments owing to rising automotive sales, however, it acquired less market share than the industrial lubricants product segment in 2012.

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core...

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...

Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective ...

Collecting data in the field and configuring multitudes of unique devices is a time-consuming, labor-intensive process that can stretch IT resources. Horan & Bird [H&B], Australia’s fifth-largest Solar Panel Installer, wanted to automate sensor data collection and monitoring from its solar panels and integrate the data with its business and marketing systems. After data was collected and structured, two major areas needed to be addressed: improving developer workflows and extending access to a b...

When an enterprise builds a hybrid IaaS cloud connecting its data center to one or more public clouds, security is often a major topic along with the other challenges involved. Security is closely intertwined with the networking choices made for the hybrid cloud. Traditional networking approaches for building a hybrid cloud try to kludge together the enterprise infrastructure with the public cloud. Consequently this approach requires risky, deep "surgery" including changes to firewalls, subnets...

The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...
