'LNG Carrier Market to be Worth $6.47bn in 2013' Says Visiongain Report

LONDON, January 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Visiongain's analysis indicates that the LNG carrier market will reach a value of $6.47bn in 2013, as companies seek to take advantage of the arbitrage opportunity that exists between the supply and demand sides of the global natural gas market. The LNG carrier market is therefore forecast by Visiongain to experience strong expansion over the next five years, reaching record levels of vessel output and capital expenditure.

The lead analyst of the LNG carrier report commented that, 'With the expansion of both LNG export and import infrastructure and very strong supply and demand natural gas market dynamics, more LNG carriers are required. The current undersupply of vessels is illustrated by an utilisation rate of the LNG carrier fleet approaching 100%, which has led to record charter rates for LNG carriers. Natural gas discoveries in North America are leading to LNG export terminal expansion on the continent, which, in addition to those terminals planned in Australia, will create yet more supply routes that need to be serviced by LNG vessels. Underpinning all this investment in LNG carriers is the significant arbitrage opportunity that exists between supply and demand markets. As the LNG spot market expands, a larger and more flexible LNG carrier fleet will be required. There is also a justifiable interest in smaller LNG carriers as the economics of transporting LNG to remote areas for power generation or for use as a transportation fuel improves.'

The report contains 112 tables, charts and graphs that add visual analysis in order to explain developing trends within the LNG carrier market. Visiongain provides forecasts for the period 2013-2023 in terms of capital expenditure (US$) on LNG carriers. In addition to a global forecast, there is a breakdown of seven leading markets by capital expenditure: three focus on the leading national LNG carrier construction markets; three breakdown the market by dominant containment system types used on LNG carriers; and one looks exclusively at the future of the small-scale LNG carrier market (less than 50,000 cubic metres of capacity). The forecasts include a breakdown of all current contracts on LNG carriers, a forecast of future delivery numbers and a breakdown of all LNG liquefaction terminals currently planned or under development.

A company's chapter provides extensive and detailed profiles, analysis and outlooks for the seven leading shipbuilders in the LNG carrier market; this includes detailing current projects, contracts, M&A activity, strategic focus and the future outlook of the companies. 46 other companies active in the market are also detailed. Last of all, three interviews from prominent figures within the LNG carrier industry provide expert insight alongside Visiongain analysis.

The LNG Carrier Market 2013-2023 will be of value to current and potential future investors in the LNG carrier industry and the LNG industry as a whole. It will also benefit companies and research centres that wish to broaden their knowledge and understanding of a growth market that will be crucial in shaping the future outlook of the global natural gas industry.

DevOps Summit 2015 New York, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that it is now accepting Keynote Proposals. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential.
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.
Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, demonstrated how to approach creating broadly successful connected customer solutions using real world business transformation studies including New England BioLabs and more.
Since 2008 and for the first time in history, more than half of humans live in urban areas, urging cities to become “smart.” Today, cities can leverage the wide availability of smartphones combined with new technologies such as Beacons or NFC to connect their urban furniture and environment to create citizen-first services that improve transportation, way-finding and information delivery. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Laetitia Gazel-Anthoine, CEO of Connecthings, will focus on successful use cases.
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...
Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With "smart" appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user's habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps, abiding by privacy concerns and making the concept a reality. These challenges can't be addressed w...
The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...
"For over 25 years we have been working with a lot of enterprise customers and we have seen how companies create applications. And now that we have moved to cloud computing, mobile, social and the Internet of Things, we see that the market needs a new way of creating applications," stated Jesse Shiah, CEO, President and Co-Founder of AgilePoint Inc., in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 15th Cloud Expo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...
The industrial software market has treated data with the mentality of “collect everything now, worry about how to use it later.” We now find ourselves buried in data, with the pervasive connectivity of the (Industrial) Internet of Things only piling on more numbers.
