The main objective of this growth opportunity analysis is to assess the impact of market trends and challenges influencing growth prospects for positive displacement (PD) pump original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in the next 5 years.New York, March 03, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reportlinker.com announces the release of the report "Innovative Business Models Focused on Digital Solutions Offer New Opportunities in the North American Positive Displacement Pumps Market" - https://www.reportlinker.com/p06030170/?utm_source=GNW As business uncertainty becomes an inevitable factor, end users across industry verticals are revisiting their strategies to adapt to the new market conditions. The unpredicted outbreak of Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) and its consequent impact on slowing down global manufacturing, which is also being interpreted as the COVID-19 induced economic recession, has severely affected the performance of pump OEMs’ North American business in 2020. Oil prices reaching their lowest level in history, worsening of US-China trade relations, closure of rigs by small oil enterprises, and massive job cuts in both the United States and Canada have contributed to the decrease in sales of PD pumps in North America.Some of the key trends analyzed in this study include Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and digital transformation, energy efficiency, impact of oil prices, and the US-China trade war. IIoT is one of the key trends affecting manufacturers as end users continue to emphasize on improvements to plant maintenance as well as reduced operational expenditure (OPEX). As companies realize that the future of manufacturing will be driven by IIoT, they will begin to look at data ownership, security, integration with existing infrastructure, and return on investment (ROI).Importantly, this research offers 5 lucrative growth opportunities for pump OEMs to consider in the North American market. The analyst considers these 5 growth opportunities as key enablers that will unlock new revenue streams and deliver differentiating pump products and services.This research embraces a specific methodology that includes discussions with senior managements of PD pump manufacturers, and is supported by secondary research.Read the full report: https://www.reportlinker.com/p06030170/?utm_source=GNWAbout ReportlinkerReportLinker is an award-winning market research solution.

India captain Virat Kohli has reacted angrily to ongoing debates around the pitch in Ahmedabad, blaming England's two-day defeat in the third Test solely on "a bizarre display of batting".Kohli has overseen two successive thumping victories on big-spinning surfaces since England took the series opener in gentler conditions in Chennai, concluding in a two-day finish last week.
(Bloomberg) -- Twice in the last week, the U.S. announced new sanctions against Russia and Saudi Arabia over what it called human rights abuses. Twice, critics said President Joe Biden pulled his punches.Financial markets and rights groups were unimpressed by Biden’s move Tuesday to sanction senior Russian law enforcement officials over the poisoning and imprisonment of opposition leader Alexey Navalny. That followed similar criticism when Biden declined to target Saudi Arabia’s crown prince after releasing an intelligence report accusing him of approving the murder of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi.U.S. lawmakers from both parties also knocked the Biden administration last week after it held off on sanctions against German entities involved in the construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline from Russia, despite arguing that the project undermines European security.Critics argue that Biden has set the wrong tone early in his administration. After accusing his predecessor Donald Trump of weakness toward autocrats, they say Biden has failed to match his rhetoric with action against leaders like Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and Russian President Vladimir Putin. They say the U.S. could sanction Russia’s oligarchs or its sovereign debt, and fault him for declining to punish the crown prince.“They castigated Trump for being weak on Russia, and they said they would be tough, and they’re doing the same,” said James Carafano, the director of foreign policy studies at the Washington-based Heritage Foundation. “The question is: What are you practically going to do?”U.S. Matches EU, U.K. Sanctions on Russia for Navalny Attack (2)The Russia sanctions announced on Tuesday hit individuals with travel restrictions and asset freezes -- actions that won’t have a big impact because those targeted probably wouldn’t travel to America or have assets in U.S. accounts. It was the same with the Saudi sanctions. After releasing the report that said Prince Mohammed authorized the killing of Khashoggi, Biden declined to target him directly.That approach was a disappointment to those who believe the Saudi crown prince deserves direct punishment for his role in Khashoggi’s murder, as it was to Navalny’s supporters. On Tuesday, Russia’s ruble rebounded, erasing earlier declines, after the narrow scope of the U.S. and European Union penalties became clear.By Wednesday morning, the Russian currency was on track for its longest run of gains in almost a month amid relief the sanctions weren’t broader. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said the ones imposed on law-enforcement officials merely duplicate limits in Russian law. Vowing a reciprocal reaction, he said the new sanctions “have no effect or purpose.” Still, Navalny’s allies welcomed the moves. “That the U.S. and EU have imposed sanctions on people who were involved in jailing Navalny is wonderful and cool,” Maria Pevchykh, a close aide of the detained Russian activist, wrote on Twitter. “But the most painful sanctions, which neither Europe nor the U.S. imposed, are the ones against oligarchs.”The Biden administration counters that the criticism is unwarranted. On a call with reporters on Tuesday, a senior official described the Navalny sanctions as a first step and suggested more would follow in three areas: Russia’s election interference; the SolarWinds hack that targeted the U.S. government and hundreds of American companies; and reports that Russia offered bounties for the killing of U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan.Why the World Frets Over Russian Nord Stream Pipeline: QuickTakeOfficials have also emphasized how they are working in tandem with other countries. They argue that by doing so -- whether in confronting Russia, China or Iran -- the U.S. actions gain strength and effectiveness from joint action, leaving the targeted nations isolated.“The announcement we’re making today was done in harmony with the EU,” White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki told reporters. “It was not meant to be a silver bullet or an ending to what has been a difficult relationship with Russia.”The focus on working with allies comes after Biden repeatedly criticized Trump for too often going it alone as part of his “America First” strategy.“They feel strongly they need to do that to restore American credibility with our allies, so that limits what they can do because the Europeans are never going to go as far as the U.S. may want to,” said John Hughes, a vice president at Albright Stonebridge Group and former sanctions policy official at the State Department.Putin, Poison and the Importance of Alexey Navalny: QuickTakeInstead the administration is trying a naming-and-shaming approach as it looks to isolate nations it considers bad actors. Its decision to declassify the report that implicated the Saudi crown prince was one such example, as was the decision to declassify the intelligence community’s assessment that Russia’s security services were responsible for Navalny’s poisoning. (The Kremlin called that allegation outrageous.)“They want people to say, ‘Listen these are bad actors,’ and that allows them to have the moral authority to get allies on board to do other things,” said Hughes, “They’re really trying to figure out where sanctions can be effective and how they can leverage them for actual foreign policy goals.”Those issues are being debated as part of a review of sanctions policy, amid accusations that the Trump administration imposed sanctions frequently around the world but didn’t back up those actions with a coherent strategy.“He’s delivered the message: What they did was beyond the pale,” Kenneth Pollack, a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute, said of the administration’s new approach to Saudi Arabia. “We’re looking at them to recognize that human rights matters and there will be a price to be paid, but we’re not looking to destroy the relationship.”Debt MarketsAnd while markets may have been unimpressed with the latest actions, the U.S. does have other options, especially in Russia’s case. That includes targeting Russia’s sovereign debt.Elina Ribakova, deputy chief economist at the Institute of International Finance in Washington, argues that while sanctions on the secondary bond market would be painful for Washington in the short term, in the longer term it would isolate Russia from the global economy, making future penalties easier to implement.“It’s an important Rubicon,” Ribakova said “Once global markets calm down in about six months, the sky is the limit and they can try tougher sanctions.”(Updates with market data, Kremlin reaction in eighth paragraph)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.

With more than 20 connected devices per human by 2030, we are rapidly moving to an environment that is permanently online and always connected. An increasingly digitalized and connected world will have a profound impact on a wide range of applications at home, at work, across cities, and several other use-cases (healthcare and automotive, for example).New York, March 03, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reportlinker.com announces the release of the report "Future of Connected Living" - https://www.reportlinker.com/p06030172/?utm_source=GNW With such high levels of hyperconnectivity, consumers will expect a fluid, personalized, and unified experience, which can only be achieved when connected devices, data flows, and networks work in perfect harmony. This connected consumer experience is no easy task for any organization to fulfill; it will require a culture of creativity, engagement, and disciplined innovation.This study outlines the evolution of connected living across 3 major connectivity environments – connected cities, connected homes, and connected workplaces. The convergence of these environments will result in ubiquitous connectivity and the emergence of new product applications, business models, technologies, platforms, and services.Connected Cities: Smart cities will drive the focus on connected and data-driven infrastructure, which will lead to higher adoption of technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) and 5G. Smart cities’ spending on technology – over the next 6 years - is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 22.7% and reach $327 billion by 2025. In a post-pandemic (COVID-19) world, cities will increasingly rely on online city services and open data platforms. For instance, more than 99% of Estonian public services are digitalized, making local services easily accessible, predictive, and effective for residents. In the long term, connected cities will integrate all aspects of human life; connected cars will act as conduits to fulfill city needs and connected physical infrastructure will constantly communicate with vehicles and other transit solutions. Ultimately, connectivity will also provide cities with an opportunity to connect marginalized communities and build an inclusive society.Connected Homes: The home of the future will become the central hub for connected living. The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the need for homes to evolve into on-demand workspaces, entertainment centers, fitness spaces, and telehealth centers. AI, augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR), advanced computing, and data analytics will enable a personalized user experience. The connected home of the future will anticipate resident behavior and adjust the home environment accordingly. Seamless connectivity will also facilitate the standardization of platforms across the intelligent device ecosystem. With the ongoing shift in energy prosumerism, homes will also transform into smart energy generation and transmission hubs.Connected Workspaces: Telecommuting by employees has grown by 115% over the past 10 years. The COVID-19 pandemic has reinforced the need for workplace connectivity. Zoom, one of the largest beneficiaries of the pandemic, recorded more than a 300% increase in revenue during 2019-2020. By 2030, around 75% of office workers, especially those working for large corporations, could move to remote work. Inter-connected hubs, digital reality solutions, and growth in unified communication and collaborative services will narrow the gap between physical and digital workplaces. IoT, automation, data analytics, and AR solutions will empower the connected worker of the future. In addition, the vision of a connected enterprise ecosystem will allow companies to build a unified strategy to predict, prepare for, and overcome challenges.Connectivity is rapidly transforming the business landscape, with new value chain partnerships, product innovation, and new business models reshaping market dynamics every day. To survive in a hyper-connected era, companies must ensure that their products and services are not only connected but also intuitive, conversant, and intelligent. For incumbents, service differentiation and strategic partnerships with technology leaders to build a broader connected ecosystem are key to thrive and sustain growth.Read the full report: https://www.reportlinker.com/p06030172/?utm_source=GNWAbout ReportlinkerReportLinker is an award-winning market research solution.
