NEW YORK, Nov. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:
The global metal industry experienced a robust growth during the last five years but is expected to slow down, and the industry revenue is forecast to reach an estimated $2,374 billion in 2017 with a CAGR of 5.5% over the next five years (2012-2017). Lucintel, a leading global management consulting and market research firm, has analyzed the global metal industry and offers its findings in its comprehensive research report, "Global Metal Industry 2012-2017: Trend, Profit, and Forecast Analysis." The metal industry consists of establishments primarily engaged in manufacturing all types of metals such as iron and steel, aluminum, base metals, and precious metals. The industry is highly fragmented. APAC dominates this industry and captured a majority of the industry share. Some of the major players in this industry are Arcelormittal, ThyssenKrupp, Rio Tinto, and BHP Billiton. A combination of factors such as growth in related industries and governmental regulations, cyclical fluctuations in metal prices, general economic conditions, and end-use markets are witnessed to impact the industry dynamics significantly. Government regulations, rising cost of input materials, increasing operational efficiency in order to reduce operating costs, and improving the quality of output are some of the challenges being faced by the industry. The increasing growth rate of construction, automobiles, heavy machinery, and equipment is expected to drive consumption of metals used in these industries. APAC emerged as the region depicting the most growth potential with a CAGR of 13% during the last five years, driven by growth in population and reasonable GDP growth. Precious metal witnessed the largest increase with double-digit growth during the last five years, driven by increases in production and price of precious metal such as gold, silver, and platinum. Lucintel's research indicates that demand for precious metal is forecast to witness highest growth during the next five years because of its increased application in a number of sectors. This study provides an overview of the global metal industry. The report tracks four market segments of four regions of the global metal industry.

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs.

Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world. A recent re-evaluation of Nigeria's true economic size doubled the previous estimate, and brought it well ahead of South Africa, which is a member (unlike Nigeria) of the G20 club for political as well as economic reasons. Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...

The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...
