Growing Number of High-Rise & Super Tall Buildings Drives the Global Smart Elevators Market, According to a New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.

San Jose, California (PRWEB) May 08, 2015

Follow us on LinkedIn – Smart elevators are growing in popularity worldwide spurred on by benefits such as energy efficiency, reduced waiting time, integrated access control features, and better control of elevator traffic. Key end-use sectors for smart elevators include commercial, residential, healthcare, hospital, retail, and industrial, among others. One of the many smart features of a smart elevator is the clustering of travelers depending on the destination floors, which reduces wait time as well as travel time by as much as 50%. Another smart feature includes detecting employees of all the companies in a particular building based on their IDs and assignment of elevators accordingly.

Strong growth is projected in both the developed and developing countries, driven by the need for efficient people mobility solutions in high rise buildings. Other important factors driving growth in the market include rising prominence of energy efficient building solutions, growing need for advanced and sophisticated security systems, increasing number of super tall buildings worldwide, positive outlook for the global construction industry, rising investments in infrastructure projects worldwide, focus on ‘green infrastructure’, and favorable regulations. An important technological advancement that is making smart elevators even smarter is the destination dispatch technology for lesser congestion in lobbies during peak hours, increased handling capacity of elevators, less crowded elevators, and enhanced passenger comfort levels. Additionally, smart elevators are making use of the cloud to offer not just enhanced comfort and faster mobility to people working and living in high-rise buildings but also uninterrupted service through predictive analysis of maintenance. Other smart elevator advancements poised to benefit market prospects in the near term include remote monitoring system for reducing elevator downtime, touch screen interface in operating panels for smart destination control, touchless summoning, and multi-carriage system for smart time management.

As stated by the new market research report on Smart Elevators, the United States represents the largest market worldwide, followed by Europe. Stringent energy efficiency regulations, rising security concerns, and increasing demand for convenient and advanced vertical transportation systems represent key growth drivers in developed markets.

Growing Threat of Cyber Attacks & Quantum Computers Drives the Quantum Cryptography Market, According to a New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.

San Jose, California (PRWEB) April 07, 2015

Follow us on LinkedIn – Quantum Cryptography (QC), a technique that harnesses the quantum-mechanical properties of light for creating secure encryption, is assuming ever more importance in the light of the string of major cyber attacks on government agencies and public utilities. Moreover, the vulnerability of conventional cryptographic approaches to rapid advancements in mathematical algorithms, and imminent threat of quantum computers, is spurring the development and commercialization of Quantum Cryptography techniques.

The QC concept has matured considerably, migrating from laboratory to proof-of-concept demonstrations and commercialized products since emerging in the 1980s. However, real-world deployment of the technology remains limited due partly to technological restrictions, high cost of switching to quantum systems, side channel attack risks, and difficulties in integrating the technology into existing communication networks. Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) technology is already finding application in the government and research sectors. While terrestrial QKD has already become a reality in some countries, the range of transmissions is constrained by geographic factors associated with the management of qubit’s relatively fragile state over long distances. Though satellite QKD networks are yet to crystallize, a number of countries are undertaking ambitious plans to set up a satellite network exclusively for QKD transmission. A number of challenges related to atmospheric turbulence, extreme power consumption, background noise, and low accuracy rate, remain to be addressed prior to implementing satellite QKD links.

The early adopters of quantum cryptographic technique include governments, military agencies or armed forces, and research institutes. Given the pace of technological advancement in recent years, the target market for quantum cryptography is poised to grow rapidly in the near term, expanding beyond the present niche areas to encompass several commercial entities, such as large and medium-sized financial companies, banks, police and gaming houses, public utilities, law and accountancy firms, power stations, and airports. Quantum cryptography in financial services market would enable safer data recovery and interconnectivity between the wholesale banks. As hardware and software costs decrease, quantum cryptography is also expected to find application in the field of e-commerce, e-government, e-health, and intelligent transport systems. QC can also be applied for transmission of biometric information

As stated by the new market research report on Quantum Cryptography, European banking establishments and government agencies have been using practical QKD systems for several years. However, the low range and lack of scalability confined the technology to research and military institutions in the United States.Backed by huge governmental funding, China is fast overtaking advanced countries in developing a nationwide quantum cryptography system.

Major players covered in the market include Alcatel-Lucent SA, HP Laboratories, ID Quantique SA, International Business Machines Corp., MagiQ Technologies Inc., Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corp., Nucrypt LLC, Oki Electric Industry Company Ltd., QinetiQ Group PLC, QuintessenceLabs Inc., Raytheon BBN Technologies, SeQureNet SarL, Toshiba Corp., and Universal Quantum D    evices, among others.

The research report titled “Quantum Cryptography: A Global Strategic Business Report” announced by Global Industry Analysts Inc., provides a comprehensive review of market trends, issues, drivers, mergers, acquisitions and other strategic industry activities of global companies. The single segment report provides market estimates and projections in US$ million for the global market for the analysis period 2012-2020.
