LONDON, March 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportbuyer.com just published a new market research report:
Investment in oilfield exploration activities drives demand
The European marine generator set market is mature, thus, has slow growth. Much of the shipbuilding activities have migrated to the Asian countries of South Korea, China, and Japan. Eurozone recession, combined with financing difficulties, is affecting demand for new vessels and, thus, gensets used in Europe. However, Europe has its competitive advantage in building advance ships. Moreover, oil and gas exploration and production activities and growth in renewable energy (especially offshore wind) are key driving factors for ships and vessel production and, thus, gensets in the European market. The study is from 2010 to 2017 and the base year is 2012.
•The European marine generator set (genset) market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) ofX% from 2012 to 2017 in revenue and units are expected to increase from X in 2012 to X in 2017.
•Commercial vessels such as cargo ships, tankers, and tug boats accounted for more than half of the genset unit sales, followed by pleasure vessels such as ferries, yachts, and ships.
•Oil and gas exploration activities in the North Sea and the focus on manufacturing advance ships are driving the growth of the marine sector in Europe. However, Asia is the hub of shipbuilding with the bulk of business concentrated in China, South Korea, and Japan.
•Moreover, the Eurozone debt crisis and the ongoing recession are affecting demand for boats and ships and, hence, demand for gensets is low.
•The low power range generator set of rating below XkW is highly competitive. Regional distribution faces fierce competition from Turkish, Chinese, and Korean manufacturers.
•Medium to large power range gensets (X kW to X kW and above X MW) are having good growth and not much price erosion compared to the smaller power range.
1. The European marine genset market is mature, however, slow growth is indicated.
2. Eurozone recession and financing difficulties are affecting demand for new vessels and, thus, gensets used.
3. Oil and gas exploration and production activities are the driving factors for ships and vessels, indirectly increasing genset demand.
4. Eighty-nine per cent volume of gensets sold in Europe is in the range ofX kW-X kW. However, the X kW-X kW and X MW-X MW both account for X% of the revenue.
5. Hybrid power and propulsion (use of lithium-ion batteries, renewable energy, and biofuel gensets) are gaining popularity.
•A marine genset (including engine and alternator) is an auxiliary power plant that provides the electricity needed to operate ships. The typical marine generator, similar to all mobile generators, burns either diesel fuel or gasoline.
•This study includes all marine gensets installed on ships that have been built in Europe, irrespective of the ships' destination.

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using ...

The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. Acco...
