News on Packaging Market:

The value of the flexible packaging market stood at USD 74.12 billion as of 2015 and is projected to rise to USD 147.4 billion by end-2022, posting at 10.31% CAGR through 2022. Replacements of conventional packaging and retail chains are the key factors driving the market growth. Environmental regulations and surging costs of materials are amid the major constraints to the market expansion. Focus on emerging economies represents one of the main opportunities for the market growth. The food in end-use segment grabs the biggest share and records the fastest CAGR in the years to come. Shifting lifestyles of end users and the surging food product consumption are expected to steer the market for flexible packaging. APAC is the biggest flexible packaging market, largely owing to the upsurge in food consumption along with the emerging economies' potential to boost the market. Amcor Limited, Sonoco Products co., Berry Plastics Group, Inc., Sealed Air Corporation, Cellpack Packaging, Wipak Group, Mondi Group, and AR Packaging, are amid the leading players in the industry. The diverse research reports on the different packaging markets are available in the Packaging Market Research Reports & Industry Analysis catalogue.

News on Property Insurance Market:

The Middle East region, Latin America and APAC are set to dominate the property insurance industry on account of heavy investments in power and infrastructure domains in the regions. The industry will likely keep on seeing modest growth to reach a value of USD 390 billion by 2017-end. The rising number of extreme weather events and violent civil disorders are the main challenges to the industry growth. Surging levels of per capita income, growing preference for customer self-service (CSS), and increasing infrastructure expenditure in emerging economies are the main drivers providing the industry with competitive edge. Insuring companies tend to benefit from the market potential by providing novel green insurance policies that bolster building of green homes and by delivering self-service portals to make customised and faster services available to customers. The comprehensive studies on the various property insurance markets can be found in the Property Insurance Market Research Reports & Industry Analysis catalogue.

News on Cards Market:

The adoption of alternative payments amid consumers in Switzerland is gathering momentum owing to the presence of a set of options, like Sofort and PayPal. In July 2016, Apple launched Apple Pay, which made it possible for clients to make contactless payments, over the Internet and via mobile phone. Leading retailers accepting Apple Pay in the country comprise Aldi, C&A, Mobile Zone, Avec, P&B, TopCC and Spar. Meantime, Kuwait has witnessed a gradual adoption of contactless technology. Al Ahli Bank introduced in February 2016 the TapNGo contactless payment solution for Visa premium credit cardholders. This service utilises NFC technology and Visa's new contactless payment method, payWave, enabling cardholders to wave or tap cards over a contactless payment terminal. Boubyan Bank launched in August 2015, Tap & Pay, a similar solution which can be utilised to make contactless payments via NFC-enabled MasterCard and Visa credit cards. The latest reports on different card and payment industry are available in the Cards Market Research Reports & Industry Analysis catalogue.

News on Infrastructure Market:

India is currently mulling over expanding its expenditure on infrastructure. The value of the infrastructure construction sector reached USD 179 billion in 2015. This value is forecast to amount to USD 290 billion by 2020-end, by nominal value. This upsurge in expenditure rests upon the assumption that a range of projects continue as planned large-scale programmes, like the Nuclear Power Programme, involving the construction of 16 nuclear reactors in the country, and the National Highways Development Programme. Meanwhile, the infrastructure sector in Honduras is likely to benefit from the provisioning of regional funding and financing options, and from the rapid development of PPPs, especially in the transport domain. Although, there are still huge structural challenges existing like the limited market for skilled labour, widespread corruption as well as insecurity in the country and across the region. The National Council of Housing Promoters is planning to build 1,300 houses and 800 apartments in Choloma, with part of plans being the construction of 10,000 homes in the next 5 years. A vast selection of market research publications on the infrastructure industry across different geographies can be found in the Infrastructure Market Research Reports & Industry Analysis catalogue.
