Home-Insecticides Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 – 2019:

Locusts have been known to be a menace to agriculture and cultivation from time immemorial, and Man has gained valuable knowledge and expertise to tackle the menace of insects. However, even today a vast majority of households across the globe suffer from insect attacks, thus generating a multi-million dollar home-insecticide industry. House insects typically include different varieties of ants, spiders, bugs, flies, moths, mosquitoes, and beetles. Different insecticides are required to eliminate different insects. Some of these insects are harmful, and some are not, but all of these are a nuisance to healthy living.

The home-insecticide market has witnessed rapid growth in almost all the geographies, and is expected to sustain its growth. Asia Pacific accounts for more than half of the total revenue of the home insecticide market. The North American and European markets continue to grow steadily, but the bulk of the sales turnover is from developing countries like India, Indonesia, China, and Philippines. However, Japan has recorded a negative growth, but that is more than compensated by the Asia-Pacific region.

One of the major factors driving this industry is the increasing rate of urbanization in developing countries. With the cities expanding in diameter to accommodate more people, the menace of insects in developing areas increases. Certain insects are seasonal, for instance bugs appear in summer in the USA, and thrive in seasonal weather conditions. This drives the seasonal sales of home insecticides. These insecticides come in two variants - spray/aerosol and coil. While the spray variant is more successful in North America and Europe, coils are very successful in Asia-Pacific mostly due to the weather conditions and the types of insects present here. The introduction of scented insecticides has also contributed to the growth of home-insecticides, as the pungent smell of insecticides used at home is not desirable.

Marine Composites Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 - 2019:

Polymeric composites used for manufacturing parts of aquatic vessels like ships, recreational boats, racing boats, power-boats, jet-boards, and sub-marines are called marine composites. It helps to reduce vessel weight and cost of production, improve fuel efficiency, impact resistance, and longevity of the vessel. Marine composites include carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP), glass fiber reinforced plastics (GFRP), and foam core materials, used to manufacture different parts of a vessel, for different end-uses. It is in use for the past forty years, and has technically developed over time, responding to market needs. This is an industry which has witnessed strong market growth over the past years and is expected to remain buoyant in the near future. The market revenue as well as volume are estimated to rise in tandem. It has high scope of growth in North America, Asia Pacific, and Europe.

Smaller boats are expected to lead the usage of composites, as their production is on the rise. There is huge demand for composites for manufacturing of hulls of yachts and sailing boats, as they are practically maintenance-free. A rise in the number of recreational boats is a key driver of this market. A lot of research is currently undertaken to improve the casting and molding techniques of the composites, which has reduced the cost considerably. There has been a surge in the demand for glass fibers for small boats, while large marine crafts continue to demand CFRP. Rise in the cost of fuel is another driver for this market as manufacturers look to increase fuel efficiency, and reduce the maintenance cost, which is possible with the use of marine composites.
