Elevator and Escalator Market in Australia to grow at a CAGR of 3.78% during the period 2017 – 2021; Finds New Report

Report forecast the elevator and escalator market in Australia to grow at a CAGR of 3.78% during the period 2017-2021.

The elevator and escalator market in Australia can be broadly classified into elevators and escalators. The elevator and escalator market in Australia has been growing at a moderate rate. The elevators are the most commonly used form of vertical transportation devices. Faster speeds and lesser space requirement than a conventional escalator is the primary reason for the high popularity of elevators. A single elevator can cater to multiple floors. However, they have limited capacity compared with an escalator.

The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the elevator and escalator market in Australia for 2017-2021. To calculate the market size, the report considers the revenue generated from various sources like installing new units, maintenance of existing units and modernizing existing units in the country during the forecast period.

According to the report, one driver in market is demand from retail landscape. Worldwide retailers are trying to expand in Australia with more than 85 groups trying to establish stores in the country. The penetration rate in the country is around 27%, and the retail sector is encountering a wide-ranging change. An accelerating worldwide brand segment to the region, particularly in the past three years, has driven rents in central business district (CBD) markets and asset overhauls in neighborhood shopping centers, creating new retail locales. Sales productivity of some global brands in Australia is among the most elevated worldwide, alluring many retail investors.

Further, the report states that one challenge in market is crackdown on foreign investments. A crackdown on foreign venture has led to fears that internal city apartment projects will be retired and deals may fail. As Australian banks scrutinize abroad purchasers and the Chinese government’s capital move through underground banks, property intellectuals caution wheels of Melbourne’s supercharged apartment market might come to a halt. It might even swell out to expensive homes in suburbia supported by Asian purchasers. In addition, Westpac, the country’s second-largest bank, has eliminated home loans to non-residents and temporary visa holders. Other significant banks like Commonwealth Bank of Australia have decreased loan to valuation ratios (LVRs). They have also tightened qualification criteria like rejecting applications from applicants, using the self-employed foreign income for loan servicing.

Australia Country Risk Report Q3 2016; New Report Launched

Real GDP growth is highly likely to slow over the coming years owing to a number of factors: slowing growth in the working age population; a high share of government spending relative to GDP; a reversal in the country’s terms of trade; and the growing risk of deflation. These impediments will result in real GDP growth averaging 2.3% over the next decade, down from 2.7% over the past decade.

Australia’s federal elections are widely expected to be held on July 2, and we believe that the lack of policy certainty, as the elections will be a close fight between the ruling Liberal-National coalition and the opposition Australian Labour Party (ALP), will be negative for investment and act as a drag on economic growth. In the event that the coalition secures a victory in the elections, the inability to reduce expenditures when revenue growth is weak will divert scarce resources from the productive sector of the economy and crowd out the private sector to the detriment of the business environment. We remain bearish on the Australian dollar despite the large fall we have already seen in the currency. While valuations are no longer a headwind to the currency, the trend remains very bearish. Weak economic growth owing to falling investment and correction in the property market amid elevated indebtedness does not bode well for the AUD.

The Liberal-National coalition government led by Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull presented its FY2016/17 (July-June) budget on May 3, and maintained its goal of a balanced budget by FY2020/21. We believe that the administration’s target is ambitious, and Australia’s fiscal accounts are unlikely to return to a surplus any time soon, given downside risks to revenue collection and a lack of expenditure cutbacks. While there is currently no danger of a fiscal crisis, our core view is that this growing burden of the government will undermine the productivity of the private sector and take its toll on economic growth over the medium term.

Following the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA)’s 25 basis point (bps) cut to its cash rate to a fresh historical low of 1.75% at its May monetary policy statement, we forecast the central bank to reduce its benchmark policy rate by another 25bps to 1.50% in by the first quarter of 2017. The central bank will ease its monetary policy further as overall economic growth deteriorates and as the unwinding investment boom is compounded by a weakening housing market amid a subdued inflationary environment.

Major Forecast Changes

We downgraded our 2016 and 2017 real GDP growth forecasts to 2.1% and 2.2%, respectively (from 2.3% and 2.5% previously), as investment in the mining sector continues to contract, and this will be compounded by weakness in the housing market.

We revised our average 2016 Australian dollar forecast stronger to USD0.7300/AUD (versus USD0.7000/AUD previously) owing to the AUD’s strength since the start of the year. However, we remain bearish on the currency over the medium term as the country’s still-elevated indebtedness leaves the currency exposed to capital outflows amid an economy that is suffering from an unwinding investment boom and a correction in the property market.

We revised our FY2016/17 federal budget deficit forecast to 2.5% of GDP from 2.1% previously as the ruling Liberal-National coalition focuses on supporting economic growth, particularly as it announces new spending initiatives, hoping to return the coalition to power.

  • Australia, like many other developed nations, registered an increase in the use of payment cards during the review period (2010–2014). While this provided greater convenience for consumers, it was accompanied by higher levels of fraud.

  • Competition in the Australian payment cards market has encouraged operators to introduce innovative payment solutions. MasterCard launched its digital wallet MasterPass in February 2013, following which Visa launched its digital wallet service, V.me, in December 2013. However, it was replaced by Visa Checkout in July 2014, which has additional features and enhances consumer convenience for online transactions.

Australia – Disruption: challenges and opportunities for the telco industry Market Report; Launched via MarketResearchReports.com

The Australian telecommunications market is continuing to see consolidation, as traditional services are being further commoditised and digital media companies are offering new communication services, free or at significantly lower cost. Thanks to new video streaming services such as Netflix, and an increased use of mobile broadband for a range of applications, people’s use of broadband has increased; however a squeeze on margins of services such as broadband access doesn’t mean that such increased usage of telecommunications also accounts for any significant increases in industry revenues.

The industry will still need to further transform itself in order to be able to handle the dynamics of the market, which include lower margins, commoditisation, new technologies and competition from outside the traditional market. The new billion dollar companies in the digital media are light on assets and light on staff; and their business models are based on transactions facilitated by their software-based services and done in an automated way by the users of their assets, using algorithms, big data, cloud computing and datacentres.

There are plenty of new opportunities in the market. Now that the quality of broadband access is improving – albeit still rather slowly – new markets are opening up in healthcare, education, government services, smart grids, smart cities, connected homes, wearable technologies, IoT and M2M – the list goes on. Telecommunications companies should take a leadership role in these developments but so far the key developments in these areas come from other organisations. Telstra is an exception here, with the leadership role it plays in the development of the e-health market in Australia.

For the time being, however, cost-cutting, consolidation and mergers will continue to dominate the telco industry. At the same time an ongoing barrage of innovations, new technologies, new apps and new services will shape the telecoms market. It is an extremely dynamic market with lots of twists and turns, set to continue into 2016 and beyond.

National Broadband Network – Developments and Analyses 2015

By mid-2015 over a million premises were able to connect to the NBN – so far most of them have access to the original NBN, three-quarters have access to FttH, the remainder to wireless and satellite networks. The revised rollout of the so-called multi-mix technology (DSL and HFC) will start in earnest in 2016.There still is no long-term plan for when and how to upgrade from the older technologies to proper FttH; however the Opposition has indicated that if it wins the next election it will revive the FttH plan, but will take into account the circumstances that exist at that time.

M2M and The Internet of Things

With the NBN and LTE now well and truly underway it is important to look at what will be the real value of this new infrastructure.

This ‘Internet of Things’ (M2M, Pervasive Internet and Industrial Internet) is going to be a real game-changer. It will transform every single sector of society and the economy and it will be out of this environment that new businesses – and indeed new industries – will be born. This is one of the reasons so many overseas ICT companies are increasing their presence in Australia. The LTE will take a leadership role in the development of M2M but the NBN is also an ideal test-bed for such developments. A great deal of attention is being paid to cloud computing and the NBN can be viewed as one gigantic cloud.

The number of connected M2M devices will grow to somewhere between 25 million and 50 million by 2020.

Big Data

Publisher describes ‘big data’ as looking at intelligent outcomes that can be achieved from data collaboration.

The most critical issue here is strategic management, rather than technology. However the fact that big data has become a vital tool in competition is forcing many companies to transform their organisations from a company-centric approach to a customer-centric one.

Connected information management, however, can go much further. There are many other players involved in the broader ecosystem, and by sharing and combining relevant data sets and then analysing those large data sets we can find new correlations that can be used to spot business trends, assess customer behaviour, prevent diseases, combat crime and so on.

Smart Cities, Smart Infrastructure

The development of smart cities and indeed smart countries require vision and recognition of the fact that many of today’s social, economic and sustainability problems can only be solved with the assistance of ICT. In many situations the ubiqueness, affordability, capacity, robustness, security and quality necessary for this calls for fibre optic and high-speed wireless infrastructures. This need will increase dramatically over the next 5 to 10 years as industries and whole sectors (healthcare, energy, transport, water) carry out the process of transforming themselves in order to much better address the challenges ahead.

Cyber Crime, Privacy and Copyright issues

With the internet having become critical national and international infrastructure a whole range of privacy and issues have come to the fore in relation to the digital economy and the digital society.

Some of these issues are in relation to national and international security and tens of billions are spent by governments using the internet as a surveillance tool. This has led to a frenzy of activity by governments to, on the one hand, protect their sovereignty and, on the other, use the internet for their own security activities.

Separate to this are the commercial issues. With internet services becoming pervasive it can be argued, rightly or wrongly, that there are some services that people simply have to have. This is exploited by the companies involved, with requests for a range of highly private data in exchange for the free use of these applications and services.

Digital media now Australia’s largest entertainment market New Report Now Available From MarketResearchReports.com

The explosion of digital media has been nothing less than spectacular. It is revolutionising the way people stay in contact with each other and the way they consume and enjoy their digital entertainment.  The traditional landscape is trembling under these changes.

Similar to the digital economy developments, the digital media are also transforming many aspects of the economy and the society, in general increasing efficiencies, democratising access and putting the people in charge rather than the suppliers of the services.

The changes are proving very difficult for the traditional industry to cope with and as a result digital media leadership is coming from new companies who don’t have the burden of legacy systems and legacy services.

Driven by the successful US-based Netflix video streaming service from America, several Australian companies have launched new video streaming services, or have updated their existing services.

The traditional IPTV model is making something of a comeback, with new video streaming services launched over higher-speed broadband networks and the introduction of competitively priced triple-play models. But digital rights constraints are making it impossible for the services to take a larger share of the entertainment content market, and the current developments are therefore being driven by free catch-up TV series rather than movies and sport. Movie content available (under the basic IPTV subscription) is mostly B- or C-rated; A-rated material and new releases are only available at extra charge.

Publisher remains pessimistic about the current commercial video streaming business models of most of the players. We predict that consolidation will have to take place.

Until now services offered by ISPs have failed to attract large paying-user bases – in early 2015 there were only around 128 million subscribers globally, and some 800,000 in Australia.

By far the largest growth in video entertainment comes from user-generated content services such as YouTube, Facebook and a whole new range of services of short, and even super-short, videos. Catch-up TV would be the second largest category.

All of the above will significantly influence video streaming developments and future models will therefore have to be substantially different from those of today. The best way to envisage this is to look at the smart devices which provide ‘app-like’ interfaces to new content services that supply instant streaming.

Publisher estimates that downloading and streaming of video now constitutes well over 50% of all regular online video usage, and that this will only increase over time.

There is a correlation between the availability of high-speed broadband and video streaming usage and it is envisaged that further increases in high-speed broadband penetration will drive new video streaming developments. The rapid growth of smartphones and tablets is also giving this market a boost, as well as new business models such as pay-per-view. New video streaming services are already being streamed over these devices, as well as over gaming devices.

Music Industry

Music was one of the early key drivers behind the developments in digital media but, with faster speeds, both mobile broadband-based and fixed broadband video streaming has overtaken music downloading. Nevertheless music streaming, podcasting and downloading MP3s is a growing activity, particularly among the younger demographic. Inflexible digital rights arrangements are still leading to illegal downloading.

With the 20% or so of Australians who actually pay for downloaded music, many others are using the online music apps like YouTube and other cloud-based sites to obtain their music. Cloud-based music has been the major growth area in recent years. It is expected that the other 80% of users who are using digital media online will try it and then some will continue to use these services – with some service providers giving cheap or free complimentary access for a couple of months and access to over 20 million tracks, some interspersed occasionally with ads. The online industry has also created several new services, especially around interaction with artist, festivals and concerts.

Newspaper and Book Publishing

The newspaper publishers are among those hardest hit by the massive changes that are taking place as a consequence of rapidly changing digital technologies.

Many of the printed media have resorted to ‘dumbing down’ their newspapers in order to survive. This has led to excesses – illegal practices in order to obtain news, and politicisation of the media to create an environment of fear, uncertainty and doubt in relation to some of the critical issues that are now being faced around the world.

New e-business models will need to be developed whereby the printed media could use their broad appeal to attract customers and then, once these customers are inside their applications and services, they could explore new business models that would enable them to monetise these visits.

By way of contrast the book industry has a golden future. More books are read than ever before and new (international) book markets open up every year. Writers have existed – and have been in demand – for 5,000 years and they are not going to die out any time soon. Nor will there be any decrease in demand for more book content.

However, new technologies are delivering the same product in a different format and/or different ways, for a fraction of the cost. Traditional cost structures are dictated by analogue business models. Digital technologies don’t have those high costs and they therefore can deliver the product significantly cheaper. As the traditional industry has been slow to adapt to this situation, we have seen others entering the market. These are enormously destructive developments for the traditional industry, and linear solutions are not the answer.

Australia – The Digital Economy is driving sector and industry transformations Market Report; Launched via MarketResearchReports.com

Based on the growth of internet and mobile users alone, it is hardly any wonder that e-commerce and m-commerce are thriving. Despite the economic downturn, online spending is proving resilient and even buoyant in most markets. New communication and software developments are making it increasingly possible for retailers to offer a seamless shopping experience using all the available shopping channels – mobile devices, computers, bricks-and-mortar, television, radio, direct mail, catalogues, and so on. In our existing climate of digital interaction, the concept of a ‘Sharing Economy’ is gaining momentum. New developments are following in the footsteps of those entrepreneurs who created sites where people share their houses and car spaces. We are now increasingly seeing sites aimed at people who need people for odd jobs, at short notice. Uber was perhaps the first on the scene here. It is still operating in a narrow market (taxies), but other companies are entering the much broader job market, by using e-commerce, offering business opportunities to increasing larger groups of people.

 

Mobile shopping is one of the hottest topics, and the m-commerce market is growing at a staggering rate. While this boom will of course taper off eventually, m-commerce will remain one of the leading growth areas for some years, driven by the younger generation and its mobile-centric lifestyle. With consumers relying more and more on their smartphones when shopping online, m-commerce will continue to grow faster than overall e-commerce, therefore accounting for an ever-increasing portion of the e-commerce market.

 

The enormous success of m-commerce is linked to apps, which are becoming more and more popular. Apps are convenient, safe, quick, and simple to use. In the global m-commerce market, shoppers are already using apps in preference to browsers. Increasingly, commercial models will be linked to these apps – which will lead to further spectacular growth in m-commerce. BuddeComm sees the development of m-wallet apps, in particular, as a major breakthrough for the m-payment sector.

 

The digital economy has brought about huge changes in the publishing industry – from digital printing presses, to indie authorship, to e-books. One of the downfalls is that self-publishing has become too easy, so that the market is flooded with low quality, poorly edited books. This has given self-published e-books a bad press. The dilemma is a thorny one, with many different interests at war. In the end, the consumer must be the one to rebalance the market.

 

In early 2015, the press was filled with reports that the physical book market had made a comeback and that e-books had had their day. But according to statistical data, while sales of print books rose slightly in 2014, e-book sales rose even more, further increasing their share of the overall book market.

 

Advertising and Marketing in the Digital Age

 

The advertising scene has undergone radical change and is still changing. With profits down between 5% and 10% on an annual basis, the performance of the traditional advertising market is under constant pressure. Data analytics is exposing the weakness of these traditional advertising business models and, like all of the other sectors affected by the digital economy, this means that these business models need to change. As they become more aware of the power of big data, advertisers are demanding hard, quantitative data on their campaigns. Increasingly, campaigns are now linked to outcomes. These are predetermined and tested against the results, and payments are made to advertising agencies based on the success of these campaigns, which are becoming far more cost-effective.

 

Social media companies are becoming increasingly important website publishers. Compared to commercial broadcasters, these companies have one important difference – they have valuable data on their consumers, which they are monetising in a big way. Although consumers are happy to share data with companies operating in the digital economy, they are most unhappy when these companies disrespect their wishes for privacy. On the other hand, many companies involved in big data analytics are disappointed with the results. So a better system could be a win-win situation for both the demand and the supply side.

Assessment of Australia’s Online Retail Sector 2015; New Report Launched

Online retail sales in Australia in January 2015 rose by 9% year-on-year to reach $16.6 billion. As compared to previous years which were clocking a 20-30% growth in the segment, the growth in 2014 has been subdued.Our analysts are of the opinion that growth will be steady in Australia’s online retail sector in the period 2016-2020 largely due to an increasing affinity for the convenience and better deals offered by the segment as compared with traditional retail.

 

The online retail sector in the country is largely dominated by department and variety stores and this segment forms close to one-third of all online spending. Traditionally Australian online retailers have lagged behind their foreign competitors in terms of both offerings and price. However, with large investments made by domestic companies operating in the sector, the situation is expected to change.

Australia – Broadcasting sector adjusts to competition from OTT video services New Report Now Available From MarketResearchReports.com

Australian audiences have increasing choice and control over when, where and how they consume media. These choices have been facilitated by the rise of technologies such as digital media players (iPods and MP3 players), digital personal video recorders, and video and audio downloads using computers connected to the internet via broadband. The FTA networks, targeting younger viewers are vulnerable to users switching to such devices permanently as they are often used concurrently while viewing.

Almost 90% of people watch TV while having a second-screen device by their side. This is generally a smartphone which is commonly tapped into during ad breaks, though about half of viewers also have a tablet to screen other shows secondary to the TV.

Although FTA television as a mass communication medium has been dominant for decades, the proportion of households watching live TV had fallen to 88% by early 2015 and the industry is now facing challenges from a number of fronts. The move to digital TV from analogue signalling and the provision of more channels has started to take effect on viewing habits.

The internet is becoming increasingly entertainment-based as broadband penetration continues to rise steadily. Consumers will be demanding a richer and extensive online experience through services such as video-based entertainment.

The FTA networks are expected to see intense competition for viewers and advertising over the coming decade, which will impact on their cost margins as they are forced to put more money into programs and marketing.
