NEW YORK, Nov. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:
The global car rental industry witnessed intense competition during the previous years, which forced companies to offer new and better services to their customers. The industry is expected to reach US $67.6 billion by 2017 with a CAGR of 3.5%over the next five years. The industry consists of all car rentals, contracted to be of less than one year duration, for corporate, individual, recreational, or business purposes. Europe is estimated to witness the most growth during the forecast period due to growing airport rentals and gradual recovery of airline activities in the past two years. Lucintel, a leading global management consulting and market research firm, has conducted a competitive analysis on the top industry players of the market and presents its findings in "Global Car Rental Industry 2012-2017: Trend, Profit, and Forecast Analysis."

Lucintel's study depicts that the industry is affected by continuous volatility in the global financial and credit markets and other concerns which have contributed to price volatility for petroleum products and higher average gasoline prices, impacting both broader economic conditions and consumer discretionary spending patterns. Limited leisure travel and a greater potential for adverse weather conditions negatively affected industry revenue. The industry witnessed moderate growth due to demand for rental cars in different countries, driven by both domestic and international tourists and business customers, resulting from technological advancements and changing demographics. The increase in travelling expenditure, growing frequency of air travel, and rising number of foreign visitors also influenced growth.

Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Jocelyn Scheirer, CEO & Founder of Bionolux, will discuss ho...

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. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...

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...
