Automotive Fuel Tanks Market to Reach US$ 40 Bn by End 2025, Globally – PMR’s Study

Rapid industrialization in emerging markets has led to the emergence of a thriving automotive industry in countries such as ChinaIndia, and Brazil, in addition to well-established industries in Europe and North America. This should drive the growth of ancillary components such as automotive fuel tanks, which Persistence Market Research has analyzed in depth in its upcoming report Global Market Study on Automotive Fuel Tanks: Plastic Fuel Tank Segment to Hold over 85% Market Share by 2025 End. With a robust CAGR of 7.0% in terms of value for the period 2017-2025.

Conventional Fuel to hold a lions share of the automotive fuel tanks market

With a value share of about 94%, conventional fuels will remain dominant in the automotive fuel tanks market and unless radical new technologies are developed, it is quite unlikely that alternate fuels should come anywhere close. A market value of about US$ 38 Bn likely to be recorded by 2025 with a CAGR of 7.0% makes conventional fuels extremely important in the medium to long term.

45 to 75 Liters Segment will lose market share to the Above 75 Liters segment

The 45 to 75 Liters fuel tank segment is estimated to account for more than 55% value share by capacity in 2017. However, it is losing popularity to the Above 75 Liters segment as consumers are expressing a preference for carrying larger amounts of fuel. This is particularly true in the commercial sector as a large fuel tank reduces the constant need to refuel the tank over and over again. As road connectivity and infrastructure improves in emerging economies, the Above 75 Liters segment is predicted to become popular.

Greater opportunity for OEMs as opposed to the Aftermarket

The OEM channel is a far more profitable opportunity for key stakeholders in the automotive fuel tanks market as it represents a consistent market share of 91% during the forecast period. The OEM channel is projected to retain its commanding position in the global market and is poised to be worth more than US$ 37 Bn by the end of the forecast period.

View Report Table of Contents, Figures, and Tables@

Focus on Passenger Cars in the automotive fuel tanks market

Passenger Cars account for a market share of more than 3/4th of the automotive fuel tanks market and it wouldn’t be surprising if companies decide to target this segment over both the LCV and HCV segments. The passenger car segment is on track to be worth over US$ 30 Bn by end 2025 and could grow with a robust CAGR of 7.0% during the eight year study period.

APAC alone accounts for almost half the global automotive fuel tanks market

The APAC region is likely to touch a market share of 50% in the global automotive fuel tanks market in 2017, largely led by the fast-growing economies of China and India. A value of around US$ 20 Bn in 2025 is just the tip of the iceberg of limitless potential that exists for major stakeholders in the APAC automotive fuel tanks market.

Juniper Research: Wireless VR set to Strain Data Networks, Generating an Additional 21,000 Petabytes of Traffic by 2021

Equivalent to over 3 billion hours of 4K video streaming

A new report from Juniper Research on Virtual Reality forecasts that wireless VR headsets (smartphone-based and standalone) data consumption will grow by over 650% over the next 4 years, from nearly 2,800PB (Petabytes) in 2017 to over 21,000PB in 2021.

The new research, Virtual Reality Markets: Hardware, Content & Accessories 2017-2022, found that data consumption will reach over 28,000PB when combined with traffic generated by VR headsets tethered to PCs and consoles, placing significant additional strain on both wired and wireless networks.

Data demand  a growing challenge

VR requires fast data speeds to stream content effectively and, by 2021, the data demand of each VR device is expected to exceed that of 4K, according to Juniper. This will be driven by the need for higher image quality and frame rates, a developing problem as VR becomes more mainstream.

In order to make VR more accessible, the Juniper report recommends bringing network operators and broadband providers into the VR standards conversation now. Juniper argues that the future data demand needs to be taken into account when considering specifications like minimum frame rate and resolution. In addition, technologies which reduce the amount of data processing, like foveated rendering, need to be rolled out and become universal.

Social VR?

The research also found that social VR is on the rise. Facebook and WeChat are currently developing VR platforms and several VR games, most notably Star Trek: Bridge Crew, have social elements. These platforms are designed to bring more users into the VR ecosystem by offering new social interactions.

VR is currently seen as very isolating, remarked research author James MoarThe promise of havingnew worlds to explore is much more compelling when other people can share the experience, which needs social games and social interfaces, as well as the development of cross-platform standards.

The whitepaper, How Oculus Killed VR Development How to Fix It, is available to download from the Juniper Research website together with further details of the new research.

Juniper Research provides research and analytical services to the global hi-tech communications sector, providing consultancy, analyst reports and industry commentary.

Vitality, Innovation, Technology and Ability are the words of the acronym VITA (LIFE in Italian), characterising Paolo Nespoli’s mission. The design of the patch represents the mission’s main messages and it’s shape reminds us of planet Earth. It also contains the symbol of the “Third Paradise” that brings together the main themes of the mission: DNA, a symbol of life and, broadly speaking, of the scientific dimension; the book, a symbol of culture and continuous learning; the Earth, symbol of the humanity.

SPAC3 is a big artwork that connects all the people to the space mission, Michelangelo Pistoletto said.  “Science and technology goes on toward the Space with Third Paradise: in this way technology brings together the humanity in a big project of balance and harmony.

The themes of intervention, inspired directly by United Nations global targets of action, will be indicated into the SPAC3 App, and displayed on 6 squared captions:







The App will ask you to pick one of 6 areas you wish to have your voice and launch your message.

A Room With A View: Wake Up on the Doorstep of Natural Beauty With Mini, VisitEngland and Visit Wales

  • MINI partners with VisitEngland and Visit Wales to offer unique experiences in a MINI Countryman this summer
  • Guests will win a stay in a rooftop tent in locations that are normally off limits to members of the public and wake up alongside areas of outstanding natural beauty. Watch the launch film here:
  • Locations include: Durdle Door on the Jurassic Coast in Dorset; Cheddar Gorge in Somerset; Snowdonia in Wales
  • MINI launched the competition in response to new OnePoll research revealing 83% of Brits would like to make more effort to visit iconic views and locations within the UK and the reason we most like UK coastal areas is for the views
  • This research also demonstrates how domestic tourism has been on the rise, with nearly half of all Brits going on a last minute ‘staycation’ within the UK in the last year


MINI has teamed up with VisitEngland and Visit Wales to offer money-can’t-buy overnight stays in a specially equipped MINI Countryman.

MINI’s biggest car will be equipped with a special rooftop tent to provide an exclusive ‘Room with a view’ in areas of outstanding natural beauty that are normally off limits to the public.

Members of the public are being given the chance to stay in one of three of the UK’s beautiful locations: Durdle Door on the world famous Jurassic Coast in Dorset; the stunning Cheddar Gorge with a backdrop of dramatic cliffs in Somerset, and the majestic glacial mountain range of Snowdonia in Wales.

MINI has launched the experiences in response to a rise in domestic tourism: new research commissioned by MINI from OnePoll shows nearly half of us are more likely to go on a spontaneous break in the UK than we have been in the past decade.

According to VisitEngland, from January to April this year (2017) Brits also took a record 11.4 million holiday trips in England.

In a staycation like no other, guests will get to experience the wonders of the UK, by entering a ballot to win a ‘money can’t buy’ experience; sleeping in a specially designed luxury roof tent by AUTOHOME, atop the MINI Countryman in a site specifically chosen for them. Guests will be fully immersed in nature and its surroundings – sleeping in comfort under the star-lit skies, and waking up to a breathtakingly beautiful sunrise.

Hublot Congratulates its Ambassador Usain “Lightning” Bolt for his Incredible Track Record

We will always be impressed by the physical and moral values that enabled Usain Bolt to become the fastest man of all time! Beyond his role as a Hublot ambassador, he is a daily inspiration for us, a role model. We will never be able to thank him enough for that. Good luck for London, good luck for the future, Usain, and may you continue to… shine!

Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO Hublot.

After a career which has not only made him a legendary athlete but also one of the greatest sportsmen of all time, Usain Bolt is going to hang up his spikes with a unique track record. 11 World Championship titles – maybe 12 after his last participation to the World Championship that will be held within the next days – and 8 Olympic medals! Usain Bolt is the only athlete to have defended his gold medal over three consecutive Olympics, even going as far as beating three records in one Olympiad! He holds the world records for the 100 metres, 200 metres and 4 x 100 metres.

Since 2010, Hublot has joined Usain Bolt in the same quest. The quest to measure time, to surpass oneself, and to de determined to stand the test of time. First, Unique, Different: the slogan defining the Hublot brand adapts perfectly to its Lightning Bolt ambassador: the first in the race, the first to beat records, unique by virtue of his track record, different due to his style, different due to his size among sprinters. The partnership resulted in the launch of a watchmaking creation just like the great champion, the Hublot Big Bang UNICO Usain Bolt watch. A piece proposed in two versions, yellow gold or All Black ceramic. Designed in collaboration with Bolt, this model in shades of green and gold is a nod to the champion’s favourite colours. Its strap presents an embossed Jamaican flag. A very special Big Bang for the fastest man since the Big Bang!

The world sprinting king will enter the Pantheon of sport once and for all after his last individual race, the 100 metres event at the World Athletics Championships which will be held on 5 August in Londonand after the 4x100m on August 12. On this occasion, Hublot is partnering with the Usain Bolt Foundation and the After School All Stars, two charities raising funds for after-school educational programmes for disadvantaged children thanks to the Omaze digital platform. One of the donors will be rewarded via a competition offering a trip to London, a meeting with Usain Bolt and a VIP welcome, as well as a Hublot wall clock.

Hublot fully supports Usain Bolt in his attempt to win a final World Championship title. Lightning Bolt is going to put the chronometer to the test!
