AUTOMOBILES & TRUCKS OVERVIEW


The automobile industry surged ahead worldwide in recent years, with particularly sharp growth in the U.S.
and China.
Analysts at IHS Automotive forecast the global market at 88.12 million units for 2016.
Car sales within North American markets have been running at very high rates.
According to Plunkett Research estimates, U.S.
car and light truck sales will likely total from 16.8 million to 17.3 million units for 2016, provided the economy does not slow signi cantly during the nal quarter
of the year.
This would represent a decline from 17.5 million units sold in 2015 and an increase over 16.5 million units sold in 2014.
Mexico's sales were expected to grow by as much as 18% in 2016, to 1.55 million units, while Canadian sales were expected to grow slightly to 1.96 million,
according to analysts at Scotia Bank.
The biggest upward trend in auto sales has been in China.
While estimates of its annual unit sales vary widely, China has clearly become the world's largest car market with about 21 million units sold in 2015.
However, China's sales are heavily subject to change due to economic growth, the availability of credit and the regulatory environment.
As of 2015-16, the growth rate of the Chinese economy was slowing, and sales of discretionary items were down, particularly luxury items.
China's government has a great deal of control over the market, as,

TRANSPORTATION, SUPPLY CHAIN & LOGISTICS INDUSTRY MARKET RESEARCH


(HTTP://WWW.PLUNKETTRESEARCH.COM/INDUSTRIES/TRANSPORTATION-SUPPLY-CHAIN-LOGISTICSINDUSTRY-MARKET-RESEARCH/)
Transportation is one of the world's largest industries.
Its sectors range from taxis to trucks, airplanes, trains, courier services, ships, barges, warehouses and logistics services.
In total, during 2015, core transportation revenues in the U.S.
were an estimated $1,004.5 billion according to Plunkett Research estimates.

Worldwide, these revenues will be a projected $4.6 trillion.


This includes air, rail, water, pipeline, courier and warehousing segments.
At about 6% of global economic activity (GDP), transportation's core sectors add up to a remarkably ef cient industry, considering the
fact that transportation is a vital service to nearly every other sector of the economy.
In fact, thanks to increasing use of advanced information systems and such strategies as intermodal containers (sending freight via
containers that are easily transferred from ship to rail car to truck as needed, without repacking), the transportation industry's
productivity is excellent.
Over recent years, globalization placed intense new demands on the transportation and supply chain sector.
FedEx, for example, provides a wide variety of freight and package delivery services in about 220 nations worldwide.
Its global eet includes over 660 aircraft and 100,000 trucks.
Transportation continues to evolve, no matter whether the type of transport involved is on the road, on the sea or in the air.
For example, China had only about 200 kilometers of expressways in 1989.
Today, it has a massive system of state-of-the-art highways surrounding the ...

ENGINEERING & RESEARCH INDUSTRY MARKET RESEARCH


(HTTP://WWW.PLUNKETTRESEARCH.COM/INDUSTRIES/ENGINEERING-RD-TECHNOLOGY-MARKETRESEARCH/)
In industrialized nations, R&D investment has risen from an average of about 1.5% of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in 1980 to
about 2.0% today.
Vast numbers of university students around the globe are enrolled in engineering and scienti c disciplinesmany of them dreaming
about potential rewards if their future research efforts become commercialized.
Global research collaboration (between companies and between companies and universities) is booming, as is patenting.
In fact, it is dif cult for patent authorities in the U.S.
and elsewhere to keep up with demand.
Globalization, immigration and cross-national collaboration have such a dramatic effect on research and design that nearly one-half
of all patents granted in America list at least one non-U.S.
citizen as a co-inventor.
Major U.S.
universities, like the University of Texas and the University of Wisconsin, as well as universities in such nations as China, Korea and
Singapore, are eager to patent their inventions and reap the bene ts of commercialized research.
Top research universities earn millions of dollars each in yearly royalties on their patents.
The 2016 Global R&D Funding Forecast, published by the Industrial Research Institute and R&D Magazine, estimates global
spending on research and development at $1.947 trillion for 2016, on a PPP or purchasing power parity basis.
PPP means that the amounts are adjusted to account for the difference in the cost of living from nation to nation, relative to the
United States.

RENEWABLE & ALTERNATIVE ENERGY INDUSTRY MARKET RESEARCH


(HTTP://WWW.PLUNKETTRESEARCH.COM/INDUSTRIES/RENEWABLE-ENERGY-MARKET-RESEARCH/)
Analysts at BP report that non-hydroelectric renewable power consumption grew by a respectable 12.0% worldwide during 2014
(the latest year for which data is available).
North American consumption increased by a substantial 10.0%.
World hydroelectric consumption increased by 2.0% during 2014.
North American hydroelectric consumption decreased by 1.7%, after a 0.3% increase in the U.S. during a below-average year due to
droughts.
Steady growth does not mean that renewables account for a large amount of the world's energy.
Instead, non-hydroelectric renewables as a percent of global electricity generation accounted for about 6.0% in 2014, up from 5.3%
in 2013.
Coal, natural gas and nuclear energy remain primary sources of electric generation in most parts of the world.
U.S.
electric production from renewable sources was 13.2% of total electric power in 2014, up from 12.2% in 2013 and only about 7.6% in
1970.
In this case, renewable includes conventional hydroelectric and geothermal, along with solar, wind and biomass.
(In 1970, such production was almost entirely from hydroelectric sources.) Wind power has seen rapid growth worldwide.
Major technological advances in wind turbines (including much larger blades creating very high output per turbine and blades that
suffer very little downtime and are thus more ef cient), along with massive government incentives encouraging investment in wind
generation, have fueled turbine installation.
In the U.S., wind power generation grew dramatically, from 11,187 thousand megawatts in ...
