Heavy duty motor oil (HDMO) demand is projected to grow steadily over the next few years as the commercial vehicle market continues to expand. Factors such as technological development accelerated by (or associated with) the online retail boom as well as the implementation of strict air-quality regulations is promoting the use of electric vehicles (EVs) in the commercial vehicle (CV) segment. Large metropolitan areas around the world are increasingly incorporating EVs into their bus fleets. However, unlike in the passenger vehicle segment, Kline foresees more modest penetration of EVs in the CV population for a variety of reasons.Continue reading
Pest control is a major issue in animal-based agriculture due to the impact of these pests on productivity. Insects annoy and irritate animals, transmit disease, reduce weight gains, and reduce production. Producers have gone to extraordinary lengths in sanitation, manure and litter removal, facility design, and air handling to eliminate potential entry points and breeding areas for flies and other insects. Still, situations remain that are most effectively handled by an insecticide application.
Gradually implemented regulations are strongly impacting the overall plant protection products market in France. To ensure a better control of the pesticides used in the country, the French government implemented Certiphyto certification, a provision of the national Ecophyto plan. Since 2015, all professional users of pesticides must get the Certiphyto certification to use all types of chemical seed treatments.Continue reading
The multichannel movement among professional brands has grown in recent years, but how different companies react to it varies. Some brands are turning into hybrid brands and selling mostly or a large part of their products through retail stores as opposed to salons. Many examples of such brands can be found among newer players on the market, such as Oribe (now owned by Kao), Alterna (among Henkel’s brands portfolio), or Living Proof (a Unilever brand). Among well-established marketers that have had a multichannel approach for many years is Estée Lauder with brands like Aveda and Bumble and bumble. In the United States, Aveda even has its own vertically integrated stores.Continue reading
India, the third largest grease consumer, is expected to witness slow but steady growth in its grease demand in the future, despite facing challenges, such as the growing use of greases filled-for-life and elongating service intervals. The expanding manufacturing sector in India offers opportunities to promote grease consumption; however, the growth potential varies with grease type as each type has distinct advantages and disadvantages.
As India continues to expand its manufacturing sector, many new factories and plants are being set up with the latest technology equipment from international original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). As a result, demand for high quality grease is expected to grow. Overall, the Indian grease market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 1.3% through 2023Continue reading
