China LFP Cathode Material Industry PEST Analysis and Top 8 Local Manufacturers 2017-2020 – Research and Markets

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "China LFP Cathode Material Industry PEST Ananlysis and Top 8 local Manufacturers in-depth Survey, 2017 to 2020 Forecast" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.


The cathode material output of China reached 161.6 kilotons in 2016, which increased by 43% on a YoY basis. The growth was mainly driven by a 60% output increase in power battery market. In 2016, the growth of China's cathode material production value (RMB 20.8 billion in 2016, increased by 54%) was faster than its output due to the continuous pricing increasing.

Among which, the output of LFP was 57 kilotons in 2016 with a YoY growth rate of 75%, accounting for 35.3% of total cathode material output. The development of power battery and energy storage battery markets have affected the demand positively. But due to the original limitation of LFP's energy density, the usage of LFP will probably see the ceiling around 2018-2019 and transfer to a downturn trend. The global LFP capacity is concentrated in Mainland China and Taiwan.

At present, China LFP cathode material price maintains at RMB 90-100 thousand per ton. The price will gradually fall affected by increasing production scale and over capacity. It is estimated that the price of cathode material will fall to RMB 60-70 thousand per ton in 2020, with a decreasing range of 30%-40%.Key Topics Covered:

Top 3 Drivers for Global Nuclear Decommissioning Services Market | Technavio

LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--#Power--Technavio market research analysts forecast the global nuclear decommissioning services market to grow at a CAGR of close to 35% during the forecast period, according to their latest report.



The report has further categorized the global nuclear decommissioning services market into different segments based on reactor type (pressurized water reactor and boiling water reactor) and geography (EMEA, APAC, and the Americas).

Technavio analysts highlight the following three market drivers that are contributing to the growth of the global nuclear decommissioning services market:

  • Worldwide shutdown of older reactors
  • Shift in energy landscape
  • Regulatory changes post nuclear plant accidents and the support of the government

Technavio’s sample reports are free of charge and contain multiple sections of the report including the market size and forecast, drivers, challenges, trends, and more.

Worldwide shutdown of older reactors

During the recent years, there has been continuous decommissioning of nuclear power plants. One of the reasons for this decommissioning is non-economic viability. After the Fukushima plant disaster in 2011, nuclear power was phased out by a large extent in many countries such as Germany, Japan, France, and the US. For the old plants to continue operations, several safety norms and installation of equipment were made necessary. This was done to prevent incidents like the Fukushima accident. But, this investment led to closure of some of the plants as it was too expensive to operate.

According to Thanikachalam Chandrasekaran, a lead analyst at Technavio for power research, “By the end of 2016, about 163 nuclear power plants were under different phases of decommissioning. The decommissioning process of some plants started earlier than the scheduled end date. It is predicted that non-economic viability was the factor for the shutdown of 71% of the total number of plants. The technological learning curve in renewable and gas power plants has made them cheaper. This has made nuclear power unprofitable. Therefore, the global nuclear decommissioning services market is expected to be fueled by the closure of older nuclear reactors.”

Shift in energy landscape

There has been a tremendous growth in renewable energy capacity as it is supported by lucrative policies, incentives, and rebates. The shares of renewable and alternative sources of energy in the global energy market are rising continuously as significant investments have been made in low carbon technologies over the years. The continuous investment has generated advances in technology that are bringing renewable energy costs to competitive levels. In countries such as the US, old nuclear power plants are being phased out due to low profitability.

“The focus on renewables has increased and the focus on nuclear power has decreased because of the adoption of smart grid and energy storage, along with the reduction in renewable technology costs. Additionally, the growth of the global nuclear decommissioning services market in short to mid-term future is predicted to be fueled by the decommissioning of older unprofitable nuclear power plants,” says Thanikachalam.

Regulatory changes post nuclear plant accidents and the support of the government

Decommissioning is a process where a nuclear plant must be upgraded or shut down like other power plants as it wears out or the operating license expires. Nevertheless, the decommissioning of nuclear power plants gained high-interest post the fatal nuclear accidents such as the Chernobyl disaster in 1986 in Ukraine and the Fukushima accident in 2011.

According to the International Nuclear and Radiological Event Scale (INES) that was introduced by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), both accidents are classified as a level 7 incident because they released a high scale of radioactive material, thereby having a negative impact on the environment and humans.

Globally, many vendors are present in the global battery market in telecommunications and the market is almost in the developing stage (not completely developed). There is a competition for higher market share by several small and medium enterprises as well as large market players. The competition among existing players is likely to increase due to the introduction of increased investments and new technologies in the market. Local or regional vendors are dominating the market in many underdeveloped and developing countries. The need for energy-efficient technology is predicted to drive the growth of the market.

According to Thanikachalam Chandrasekaran, a lead analyst at Technavio for energy storage research, “One of the key factors driving the growth of the market is the rise of green telecom towers. In North America, particularly in the US, telecom tower and infrastructure operators are under tremendous pressure to reduce their carbon footprint. Thus, green telecom power systems are being used by manufacturers of telecom power systems to expand their product portfolio. Diesel generators are being predominantly used in the telecom sector. Therefore, diesel accounts for more than two-fifth of the total operating expenditure.”

Top 5 Vendors in the Global Hot Drink Market – Technavio

LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--#HotDrink--Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors in their recent global hot drink market report from 2017-2021. This market research report also lists 15 other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.



Competitive vendor landscape

There is the presence of numerous small and large vendors in the global hot drinks market leading to its fragmentation. In the current market, several companies of varying sizes are present, where some are more specialized than the others with respect to commodities. Factors such as price, quality, innovation, service, packaging, brand image, distribution, and promotion contribute to competition among the vendors. Any technological advances from a single player in the market can render products from other vendors uneconomical.

According to Manjunath Reddy, a lead analyst at Technavio for non-alcoholic beverages research, “One of the driving factors of the market is the increasing popularity of coffee pods and tea pods. The demand for convenience food products has been rising since the last decade. Many nations worldwide are experiencing significant infrastructural developments and rapid rates of urbanization. New innovative habits and preferences among tea and coffee seekers have been brought about by these trends.”

Top 100 City Destinations Ranking – WTM London 2017 Edition Revealed by Euromonitor

LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--#Rankings--Euromonitor International unveiled today the Top 100 City Destinations Ranking 2017 Edition1 at World Travel Market (WTM) London, the leading travel and tourism event worldwide. This year's report highlights how future travel trends are borne out of the opportunities and challenges cities face.


According to the report, Asian cities dominate the global destination rankings thanks to the unstoppable rise of Chinese outbound tourism demand. Hong Kong is the most visited city in the world, followed by Bangkok, which overtook London in 2015. Wouter Geerts, Senior Travel Analyst at Euromonitor International, comments: “Asia Pacific is the standout region driving change in travel. We expect the region to continue growing in the coming decade with Singapore overtaking London as the third most visited city in the world by 2025, giving the podium fully to Asia.”

On the contrary, the performance of European cities has been hampered by the Eurozone and migrants’ crisis, as well as Brexit and terrorist attacks. Despite the uncertainty, some European destinations, in particular Greece, Italy and Spain, have profited from unrest in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA).

Performance in the MENA region has fluctuated greatly in recent years, however, Euromonitor forecast data shows a recovery for the region in 2017 and beyond. While MENA’s main challenges remain wars and border disputes, Sub-Saharan Africa is looking to do the reverse: opening borders and enhancing collaboration with the African Union for a plan towards seamless borders.

In stark contrast to Africa, the plans towards stronger border controls might weigh heavily on America’s tourist arrival growth. According to Euromonitor International’s Travel Forecast Model, if the US drops out of NAFTA and imposes a 35 percent tariff on Mexican imports, followed by Mexican retaliation, the impact on inter-regional travel would be considerable. New York, the most visited city in America and the only US city in the top ten most visited city ranking, has revised its 2017 forecast, expecting a potential fall of 300,000 visitors as a worst case scenario.

The top ten most visited cities are:

  1. Hong Kong: 26.6 million visitors
  2. Bangkok: 21.2 million visitors
  3. London: 19.2 million visitors
  4. Singapore: 16.6 million visitors
  5. Macau: 15.4 million visitors
  6. Dubai: 14.9 million visitors
  7. Paris: 14.4 million visitors
  8. New York: 12.7 million visitors
  9. Shenzhen: 12.6 million visitors
  10. Kuala Lumpur: 12.3 million visitors

Geerts concludes: “This report highlights why some cities are performing better than others and how emerging trends are going to reshape the travel industry and disrupt the ranking up to 2025.”
