INTRODUCTION

This chapter provides an introduction to this report, describing the study goals and objectives, reasons for doing the study, intended audience, scope, methodology, information sources, and analyst credentials for along with an introduction to BCC online services and disclaimer.

STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES

The goal of this study is to help the readers form a comprehensive understanding of the recent advances and trends in polyolefins manufacturing, applications, technologies, and global and regional markets. For this goal, this report will provide in-depth analysis for the polyolefin resins market, including polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP) markets. PE includes low density polyethylene (LDPE), linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) and high density polyethylene (HDPE).

Four objectives in this report will be met. Major types of polyolefins and their future demand will be described. Main technologies of polyolefin manufacturing will be discussed. Commercial applications in which polyolefin resins are used will be discussed. Present consumption and future demand for polyolefins will be evaluated for global markets by seven world regions: North America, South America, Europe, China, Asia, Middle East and Africa, and the rest of the world (ROW).

Trends in technology will be analyzed. The impact of governmental regulations and international agreements will be ascertained. Patents of polyolefins will be discussed. The structural dynamics of the polyolefin industry will be outlined, along with profiles of key manufacturers in the United States, China, Japan, Korea, India, Brazil, France, Germany, Austria, Taiwan, and other countries or regions.

This report will review global markets for polyolefins and will forecast trends and sales in these markets through 2016. Important manufacturers, technologies and factors influencing demand will be discussed.

The polyolefin market is closely relevant to the production and supplies of the olefin industry; therefore, olefin production will be described. Catalysts are important materials for polyolefin production and will be discussed.

BCC's goal in conducting this study was to determine the current status of the polyolefin industry and to assess its growth potential over a five-year period from 2011 to 2016. A primary objective was to present a comprehensive analysis of the current polyolefin market and project its future direction.

REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDY

There are two reasons for doing this study:

Polyolefin manufacturers need to understand the market trend and new technologies of the industry, planning their investment, production, and research and development (R&D) for the next five years or a longer period.

Raw materials suppliers and catalyst manufacturers need to understand the polyolefin market consumption and trends for planning their production and R&D for the next five years.

SCOPE OF REPORT

The report forecasts the size of the market in current U.S. dollars for polyolefin resins materials in value terms for each material and/or volume terms from 2011 through 2016.

The report forecasts the market size or output of polyolefins such as PP and PEs. PEs includes HDPE, LDPE and LLDPE. The forecasts are classified on the basis of product type, technology type, application, catalyst types and geographical region.

The report also describes the raw materials supplies and important players in the polyolefin industry.

INTENDED AUDIENCE

The intended audience of this report includes polyolefins (PE and PP) manufacturers and suppliers. Olefins (ethylene and propylene) producers, polyolefin catalysts producers, oil companies and petrochemicals (e.g., naphtha, hexane, propane and butane) suppliers may be interested in this report too.

METHODOLOGY

Estimates of current market demand are made for 2010 and are projected over the next five years. Projections are made in terms of constant U.S. dollars (2010). Growth is presented in terms of a compound average annual growth rate (CAGR). Prices are measured at the manufacturer level. Resin price levels of late 2010 to mid-2011 are used to determine the market value, unless specified otherwise. But factors that influence the price levels will be discussed.

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...
"At our booth we are showing how to provide trust in the Internet of Things. Trust is where everything starts to become secure and trustworthy.

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 of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
