Leading Five Countries in the European Wear & Tear Parts Market, 2011–15

While the general trend in mature markets is for declining average mileage in lieu of higher vehicle ownership ratios per household, the ongoing economic stagnation is causing motorists to seek financial savings by substituting vehicle use, thus decelerating their vehicles' wear rates and as a result reducing consumption of wear and tear parts on an annual basis.

Features and benefits
  • Achieve revenue growth by understanding the forecast sales of wear and tear parts by country and adjust business development plans to suit.
  • Uncover new distribution opportunities for your products by identifying which types of retailer are most successful in each country and why.
  • Improve your product mix and hence revenues by gaining insight into what types of wear and tear part are proving popular, by country and region.
  • Formulate market share and channel share objectives for your company using our product and distribution data.
  • Develop new strategies to sell your products by understanding where premium and budget brands are most popular, and why.

Despite only having a relatively small volume in 2011, shock absorbers are proportionally one of the most valuable components in the aftermarket. This component is expected to experience a decrease of almost 9% in sales by 2015 and, while this equates to smaller losses than some other parts, the financial ramifications will be profound.

As developments progress in the improvement of the passenger car, batteries will be required to evolve in order to serve the needs of technological advances. These next-generation batteries are expected to be fully integrated into the market with the next four to five years.

Drinks Market - Hot Drinks Market in Spain

The spectre of economic recession continues to stalk the Spanish landscape
Spain’s severe economic crisis remained the principal factor exerting a negative influence over the performance of hot drinks during 2011. Spain’s GDP growth in 2011 was even lower than previously anticipated, struggling to 0.5% according to INE (National Statistics Institute), while the unemployment rate remained above 21% of the eligible population. A climate of economic uncertainty continues to prevail in Spain, and the situation deteriorated during 2011 as of Spain’s ongoing sovereign debt crisis occupied central position on the political agenda. The previous Spanish government carried out strong adjustment measures throughout 2011 in a bid to effect positive changes in the country’s economic scenario under severe pressure from the European Commission.

Unit prices continue to increase in hot drinks as the cost of raw material peaks
During 2011, Spanish consumers were served a timely reminder of how the unit prices of products such as coffee and chocolate-based flavoured powder drinks are vulnerable to strong increases. The simple fact remains that the price of the raw materials used in the production of coffee and chocolate-based flavoured powder drinks such as coffee beans and cacao beans peaked at global level in 2011 as the commodity price of coffee beans reached the highest levels in 34 years, while the price of cacao beans reached an all-time high. Even though it is generally assumed that the unfavourable coffee and cocoa harvests in certain countries were primarily responsible for the restricted availability of coffee and cacao beans during 2011, the world’s leading hot drinks companies have conceded that the outrageous rise in the unit prices of hot drinks is at least partially attributable to the speculative activities of commodity traders.

Health and wellness becomes a more important demand factor in hot drinks
During the review period, the hot drinks categories which recorded the fastest growth rates were also those which were marketed mainly by reference to their health benefits. This was most evident in tea, in which green tea, rooibos tea and white tea—all of which offer consumers high levels of antioxidants and very healthy properties—became more popular. In the case of coffee, decaffeinated coffee and innovative products such as Nescafé Green Blend, a product high in antioxidants, experienced higher demand.

The leading hot drinks companies fight Nespresso for dominance in coffee pods
Fresh ground coffee pods continued to experience outstanding growth in Spain again during 2011. According to industry sources, 15% of all Spanish households now have a coffee pod machine. Even though Nestlé remains the leading player in fresh ground coffee pods with its Nespresso and Dolce Gusto coffee pods brands, 2011 saw new players entering fresh ground coffee pods and companies such as Sara Lee Southern Europe launched coffee pods which are compatible with Nespresso machines. While the leading manufacturers continued to work hard to diversify their product portfolios during 2011, adding pod products in chocolate-based flavoured powder drinks and tea, some of Spain’s smaller coffee companies are working towards developing coffee pod systems for on-trade channels, offices and other institutional customers.

Spain’s leading hot drinks companies embrace fair trade and sustainability policies
In response to the growing awareness of Spanish consumers with regards to fair trade and sustainability, the leading multinational companies within hot drinks in Spain are releasing more products which comply with the relevant international certifications in this regard in addition to conceiving of new ways to act more responsibly both in terms of minimising the environmental impact of their products and commercial activities and the conferring more benefits on the societies which are involved in the agricultural production and manufacturing processes which are involved in the production of hot drinks. The key companies in this sense are Kraft Foods, Sara Lee and Nestlé España.

2012-2022 RFID Forecasts, Players and Opportunities

In 2012 the value of the entire RFID market will be $7.46 billion, up from $6.37 billion in 2011. This includes tags, readers and software/services for RFID cards, labels, fobs and all other form factors. It includes passive and active RFID.

In retail, RFID is seeing rapid growth for apparel tagging - that application alone demands 1 billion RFID labels in 2012. RFID in the form of tickets used for transit will demand 500 million tags in 2012. The tagging of animals (such as pigs, sheep and pets) is now substantial as it becomes a legal requirement in many more territories, with 294 million tags being used for this sector in 2012. This is happening in regions such as China and Australasia. In total, 3.98 billion tags will be sold in 2012 versus 2.93 billion in 2011. Most of that growth is from passive UHF RFID labels, however, at that frequency suppliers are still barely profitable so far.
This comprehensive report from IDTechEx gives the complete picture with detailed forecasts and depth unmatched by any other.

Full analysis by each market
Full analysis by each market is given in great detail including in-depth historic data. Over 200 companies are profiled in this report. We give detailed ten year forecasts of the volumes of tags required, their value and the total market value for over 30 market segments.

Highly profitable
Major players now and in the future in the various parts of the value chain are identified and the big orders and milestones now and in the future are analyzed. Those doing well in numbers sold are sometimes much less impressive in dollars taken and vice versa. Of course, not everyone will want to serve the severely price constrained, highest volume markets. For them, we examine many niches of at least one billion dollars potential that are emerging and many smaller opportunities where there is even less competition.

Global coverage
The report covers the topic globally - with coverage of the drivers and challenges in rapidly growing sectors such as China, South America and Russia, in addition to the latest progress in North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific, with forecasts given by territory.
