Technavio Announces Top Three Emerging Trends Driving the Preschool or Child Care Market in China Until 2020

LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--#Childcare--Technavio’s latest report on the preschool or child care market in China provides an analysis on the most important trends expected to impact the market outlook from 2016-2020. Technavio defines an emerging trend as a factor that has the potential to significantly impact the market and contribute to its growth or decline.


Jhansi Mary, a lead analyst from Technavio, specializing in research on K12 and higher education sector, says, “The increased number of working women has been a major driving factor contributing to the growth of the market. According to the World Bank, in 2014, women constituted 49% of the total population in China and 46% of the country's labor force. Young women from rural areas are moving to Tier 1 and Tier 2 cities in China for better opportunities. Jobs in the public sector are popular among working mothers because of shorter and more feasible hours than in the private sector.”

Outlook of the preschool or child care market in China

Enrollments in preschool or child care centers in China were valued at 435.3 million in 2015 and is expected to reach 587.1 million by 2020, growing at a CAGR of over 6%. The rise in the preschool and child care market has led to the rise in competition among vendors in the market. Many kindergartens and schools are trying to enhance children's skills by relying on interactive and individualized learning experiences driven by new technologies. Many kindergartens in the Tier 1 cities, such as Shanghai and Beijing, are focused on helping parents to create a specific environment at home for children aged 3-6 to help them in learning and education.

The child care market in China has seen an intense rivalry among vendors who are competing on expanding the business to all the geographical locations in the country. Many international schools entering the market are focusing on increasing their customer base by ensuring high quality customer service. The Montessori School of Shanghai is dedicated in providing authentic Montessori education benefits that establish healthy attitudes for both children and adults.

The top three emerging trends driving the preschool or child care market in China according to Technavio education research analysts are:

  • Implementation of child care services at workplace
  • Adoption of international curriculum
  • Rising need to learn English

Implementation of child care services at workplace

“Many organizations are providing daycare centers with personal baby-sitters at the workplace. Such an implementation by organizations not only satisfies personal commitments of employees but also helps them improve productivity. Companies collaborate with major leading vendors of child care centers by implementing their curricula and training methods. Such services by companies are most likely to be adopted by employees as parents can get to meet their children at regular intervals and also reduce the commutation time between child care centers and workplaces. Hence, adopting child care services at workplaces helps to grow the market,” adds Jhansi.

Adoption of international curriculum

The footprint of various international schools and kindergartens in China has led to a major change in the educational curriculum. These international schools follow the western educational system, which has led to the increase in enrollments of children from the elite class and upper middle-class families.

This system is adopted by all of the new vendors entering into the child care market due to the rise in interest among parents towards the learning of both western and Chinese educational systems. This implementation of international educational system has led to the increase in enrollments in all domestic child care centers eventually driving the growth of the market.

Rising need to learn English

English is a widely spoken language in China. As a result, it has become the most required foreign language in the school curriculum. This has influenced many parents in providing their children with English language training prior to primary education. The rise in demand from parents has prompted private preschool education centers to provide English language as a part of the curriculum. New Oriental Education & Technology Group, RISE Education, and Disney Consumer Products are the key players in the preschool market as they offer modern learning methods to promote education at the preschool level. Moreover, the deployment of modern techniques has increased the demand for English proficiency as instructions are mostly available in this language. Hence, these advances will boost the market growth considerably in the future.

COWAROBOT Introduces First-Ever Robotic Suitcase, R1, With Launch of Indiegogo Campaign

COWAROBOT R1 frees the users’ hands and follows autonomously, making travel more high-tech and enjoyable

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--COWAROBOT, a robotics company bringing proprietary robotics technology to consumer products, announced today the launch of its flagship product, COWAROBOT R1, via the crowdfunding platform Indiegogo. R1 is the first-ever robotic suitcase, incorporating robotics technology to its smart suitcase shell. R1 adds robotics technology to traditional luggage including autonomous following and obstacle avoidance, among other features.


COWAROBOT R1, which was debuted at CES Asia in May 2016, is the first carry-on suitcase that simply rolls along with you. Designed to free your hands from holding or rolling luggage while traveling, the attractive 20-inch suitcase uses multi-sensor fusion technology and robot motion control algorithm to allow for autonomous following and obstacle avoidance.

Incorporating CO-EYE and CO-MOVE technologies, R1 is able to sense and monitor the surrounding area in real time. Based on that sense of “vision,” the robot will find an optimal path to walk along with the user.

“After the amazing reception we had at CES Asia, we are excited to launch this crowdfunding campaign in the US,” said Tommie Tao, founder and CEO of COWAROBOT. “After our success with the launch, we knew we had a great product to bring to the US and we look forward to building our brand and hearing from the backers to really fine-tune this product. R1 is the perfect robotic buddy to make the traveling process more enjoyable and convenient.”

COWAROBOT R1 includes the following features:

  • Auto tracking – for autonomous follow and obstacle avoidance, easily control the suitcase by touching the adaptive handle to switch between autonomous and manual modes. R1 follows at a rate of up to 4.5 miles per hour, faster than the average 2.7 mph walking speed
  • Active finder – COWAROBOT R1 can actively find its user and navigate its way back to the user within a distance of up to 164 feet
  • Elegant design – 20-inch suitcase is available in four colors with an aluminum frame
  • Multiple security measures – TSA approved CO-SMART intelligent locks, proximity alarm and embedded GPS ensures the safety of the suitcase
  • Convenient access – secondary storage compartment for easy access to electronic devices with one-push open lid and large main storage compartment for maximum packing space
  • Digital device charging – portable and multi-purpose charging station aboard the suitcase can be inserted and removed quickly and conveniently (in accordance with TSA regulations), and charges both the suitcase and external devices
  • Proprietary app – mobile access to control smart locks, record and share the traveling path, and monitor the status of the suitcase

The Indiegogo campaign officially launches on July 26, 2016 and will run for 30 days. Backers will have the opportunity to support COWAROBOT R1, starting at $429. At the close of the campaign, COWAROBOT will begin manufacturing R1 with funds raised during the campaign going towards manufacturing costs. R1 is set to ship in October 2016.

About COWAROBOT:

Established in 2013, COWAROBOT is a robotics company that brings proprietary robotics technology to consumer electronics. Comprised of robotics enthusiasts with experience in both industrial and commercial robotics, the founding team is passionate about finding interesting and useful ways to incorporate robotics into everyday life.

COWAROBOT’s flagship product, COWAROBOT R1, is the first-ever robotic suitcase. R1 frees your hands and stays with you autonomously, making travel much more high-tech and enjoyable. The suitcase also has a smart version without the robotics technology, COWAROBOT S1, which includes features such as digital device charging and smartphone application to monitor the status of the bag and operate the CO-SMART intelligent locks.

2016年GSMA世界移动通信大会获得碳平衡认证

保持全球最大的碳平衡大会的吉尼斯世界纪录;
加泰罗尼亚馆、欧洲委员会和世界移动之都巴塞罗那成为2016年世界移动通信大会“绿色展台奖”的获奖者

西班牙巴塞罗那--(BUSINESS WIRE)--(美国商业资讯)--GSMA今天宣布,2016年世界移动通信大会(2016 Mobile World Congress)已正式获得英国标准学会(BSI)的碳平衡认证,并且被吉尼斯世界纪录(Guinness World Records)确认为全球最大的碳平衡大会。此外,作为世界移动通信大会范围更广泛的环境计划的一部分,GSMA今天还将加泰罗尼亚馆(Catalonia Pavilion)、欧洲委员会(European Commission)和世界移动之都巴塞罗那(Mobile World Capital Barcelona)评为2016年世界移动通信大会“绿色展台奖”(Green Stand Awards)的获奖者。


GSMA Ltd.首席执行官John Hoffman表示:“GSMA致力于确保世界移动通信大会的可持续发展,携手Fira Barcelona、我们的参展商及当地合作伙伴降低电力消耗,减少打印材料浪费,鼓励再使用和回收举办场地发放的资料,利用数字看板和电子工具以及其他活动。我们对‘捐赠室’计划尤感自豪,这是我们今年与巴塞罗那市议会推出的一项全新计划,参展商可在此捐出不用的材料和布展用家具,以帮助巴塞罗那有困难的民众。它不仅最大程度降低我们的碳足迹,而且还将回馈给予世界移动通信大会支持的社区。”

为再次获得此项认证,GSMA携手Factor CO2咨询公司计算世界移动通信大会的碳足迹,制定减少碳影响的管理计划,以及补偿剩余的碳排放量。2016年世界移动通信大会共产生大约163,867立方公吨的二氧化碳当量(tCO2e);据估计,与世界移动通信大会有关的碳排放量中的89%是在与会者往来大会的途中和与会过程中产生的,剩余的11%与大会的举办场地和运作有关。

作为独立的第三方机构,BSI证实,已识别的碳排放源和温室气体排放为正当操作,符合国际标准PAS 2050:2011。此外,由于GSMA实施了一系列减排措施,并购买了碳信用额以补偿会展期间产生的剩余碳排放量,BSI证实世界移动通信大会的碳排放为中性,符合PAS 2060国际标准。

GSMA购买的碳信用额有助于为在清洁发展机制(CDM)之下注册的多个减排项目提供资金支持,此机制为《联合国气候变化框架公约》(UNFCCC)的组成部分。这些减排项目包括中国湖北省的径流式水电站项目,以及马来西亚和尼日利亚的气体回收和利用项目等等。

回馈社会

GSMA与巴塞罗那市议会推出了一项名为“捐赠室”(Donation Room)的计划,以作为2016年的新增活动,世界移动通信大会的参展商可在活动结束时,在此向当地的社会责任型实体机构捐献布展用家具、IT设备、办公设备和企业礼品。2016年世界移动通信大会结束后,参展商和GSMA大约向“捐赠室”捐出了6吨建筑材料和150多件优质家具。Fundació Formacío i Treball收到了捐赠的家具,它将通过巴塞罗那的社会服务中心提供给有困难的家庭和个人,或者在其商店网络内出售,用于筹集就业和培训项目的资金,而Ateneu de Fabricació de La Fàbrica del Sol收到的建筑材料将用于其为年轻人开展活动的中心。

2016年绿色展台奖 获奖者

GSMA携手参展商提供更深刻的见解并深入了解参展商各自的碳足迹,同时鼓励各企业在参展期间执行最佳环境实践。GSMA于2015年设立了“绿色展台奖”,以在世界移动通信大会期间对各种规模的参展商中实现良好环境绩效的参展商进行表彰和奖励。2016年“绿色展台奖”的获奖者包括:

  • “大型展台”(超过500平方米)类的加泰罗尼亚馆
  • “中型展台”(150-500平方米)类的世界移动之都巴塞罗那
  • “小型展台”(小于150平方米)类的欧洲委员会

联想凭借他们为降低其展台的碳足迹所采取的措施而获得“高度评价奖”(Highly Commended)。

Hoffman评论道:“我们向因对环境做出的承诺而荣获本年度‘绿色展台奖’的获得者表示祝贺,也感谢他们在让2016年世界移动通信大会成为碳平衡大会中所做出的贡献。”

2017年世界移动通信大会

2017年世界移动通信大会将于2017年2月27日至3月2日在Fira Gran Via举办。世界移动通信大会是世界移动通信之都的基石,将在巴塞罗那举办到2023年。世界移动通信之都负责横跨一整年的项目与活动,不仅造福于巴塞罗那、加泰罗尼亚和西班牙的民众,而且将使全球移动行业受益。如需了解有关世界移动通信之都的更多信息,请访问www.mobileworldcapital.com

China Steel Industry Overview 2011-2020 – In 2015, China Exported 112.4 Million Tons of Steel Products with an Increase of 19.9% YOY – Research and Markets

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "China Steel Industry Overview, 2011-2020" report to their offering.


Major leading enterprises are state-holding enterprises with large scale which possess a complete set of supply-production-sale system through mergers. In terms of output volume, CR5 of 2015 was only about 8.6%. However, there are numerous small-sized private enterprises. Therefore, China's steel industry is a fully competitive industry.

The major material of steel product manufacture is iron ore. The import of iron ore in China highly depends on foreign countries. In 2015, China imported 953 million tons of iron ore with an increase of 2.2% compared to 2014, which accounted for 81% of the national demand for iron ore. Therefore, the price trend of imported iron ore exerted a huge impact on the profit margin of steel product manufacturers. From 2013 on, the price of imported iron ore continued to fall. The price of iron ore imported by China in the second half of 2015 declined by more than a half compared to that in the first half of 2013. The decline is conducive to decreasing the costs of steel manufacturers so as to increase the profit margin.

In the next few years, it is predicted that the economic growth of China will continue to decline. However, the annual growth rate is expected to maintain about 6%. With the implementation of such strategies as One Belt and One Road, Made in China 2025 and Yangtze River Economic Belt, there will emerge certain demand for steel products, which will bring in new opportunities for the development of China steel industry. In recent years, steel products exported by China increased rapidly. In 2015, China exported 112.4 million tons of steel products with an increase of 19.9% YOY.

The increase of exported steel products was stimulated by the international demand for steel products, which reflected the strengthening competitiveness of Chinese steel products in the international market. In spite of many trade barriers, the steel products exported by China are expected to keep increasing with huge price advantages, which will become one of the key factors in the development of China steel industry.
