Defense Market Size Anticipated To Exceed USD 10.5 Billion By 2023

Defense market size was valued around USD 6 billion in 2014 and is anticipated to exceed USD 10.5 billion by 2023, growing at a CAGR of over 6.1% from 2016 to 2023. The growth can be mainly attributed to increasing technological innovation and advancement. The technological improvements are expected to improvise the military power and thus resulting in making it stronger. Various nations are now concentrating on developing the protection systems for themselves as well as to trade with other militaries.

Proliferating security concerns among various nations and rising government spending in research and development activities is likely to propel the industry growth. Nations assessment of its security is mainly responsible for shaping its security system. As the country’s economy grows its security spending also increases. Nations are now retooling their fighting abilities towards more affordable and updated technology.

Countries such as China, Israel and Russia defense market see significant spending in improvising their resistance systems. As of 2015, U.S spends around 54% of its fiscal budget for military utilities and accounted for 37% of the overall industry share. It spends as much as USD 610 billion and ranks first in case of defense expenditure across the globe. Japan, China, United Kingdom, Russia, Germany, South Korea, France, Saudi Arabia and India collectively valued for USD 601 billion in 2015.

The global defense market is estimated to face two major challenges over the forecast period namely, profitability growth and cost cutting to maintain financial performance. In order to tackle these conditions several counties namely India is now focusing on defense foreign investments and technology platforms for increasing production operations in the country. As of 2015, The Ministry of Commerce and Industry (MC&I) has modified its FDI limit from 26% to 49% in order to improve country’s own security system. Moreover, declining resistance budgets accompanied by rising development costs is expected to hamper defense market growth from 2016 to 2023.

In addition, countries namely UAE, Saudi Arabia, India, South Korea, Japan, China and Russia exhibit potential growth prospects owing to threat from other countries. Defense companies are expected to witness huge growth opportunities owing to increasing investment in next generation ISR, unmanned combat land and sea vehicles, cognition & data analytics as well as improved precision strike with the assistance of non kinetic weapons. The defense market can be segmented on the basis of platform which includes airborne, naval and land based.

U.S. MDA (Missile Defense Agency) and Raytheon are jointly working on development of MOKV (Multi-Object Kill Vehicle) concept. These are specialized equipments that are likely to steer itself to the target and destroy the objects in space. In addition, India has test fired its AAD (advanced air defense) interceptor missile developed by DRDO (Defense Research and Development Organisation). It is a single-stage, anti-ballistic missile designed to suspend incoming missiles from an altitude of 30 kms. When integrated with Prithvi air defense missile, the experiment might result in two-tier ballistic missile defense system which is developed to intercept any threat from an altitude of 5000 kms.

Key industry participants in defense market share include Boeing, EADS/Airbus, United Technologies, Raytheon, Northrop Grumman and General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, ABG Shipyard Limited (ABG), Adcom Military Industries, Bharat Dynamics Limited, Brazilian Company Avionics Services, CADES Engineering Technologies Ltd, Cassidian Cyber Security, EBV Explosives Environmental Company, Direction des Constructions Navales Services (DCNS), BAE Systems Information and Electronic Systems Integration Inc. (US), EUREST Raytheon Support Services , European Advanced Technology S.A., Hispano-Suiza, HCL Aerospace & Defense and Advance Tech Control Pvt Ltd among others.

Veganuary Celebrates 1 Million Participant As Plant-Based Diet Goes Mainstream

  • Veganuary, the U.K.-based campaign encouraging people to eat vegan for the month of January, has just hit the 1 million supporter mark since its inception in 2014
  • The achievement is testament to the growing plant-based trend, especially in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, which has sent consumers all over the world looking for healthier, more sustainable and safer alternatives to animal foods.

By Sally Ho

Veganuary, the U.K.-based campaign encouraging people to eat vegan for the month of January, has just hit the 1 million supporter mark since its inception in 2014. The achievement is testament to the growing plant-based trend, especially in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, which has sent consumers all over the world looking for healthier, more sustainable and safer alternatives to animal foods. 

Announced on Monday (October 26), Veganuary has welcomed its one millionth participant joining the movement to try veganism for 31 days. Since the campaign first began in 2014, it has attracted the support of big names, including television presenter Jasmine Harman, actor Peter Egan and renowned wildlife presenter Chris Packham

Harman, who took part in the first-ever Veganuary six years ago, broadcasted a video message congratulating the charity on the milestone. “I feel very proud and very privileged to have been with Veganuary from the start and to be one of their ambassadors,” she said. 

In its first year, Veganuary attracted just 3,300 supporters, but it quickly rose to fame as plant-based foods have come to garner greater spotlight in recent years as consumers begin to couple the environmental footprint and health impact of their food choices. The one million total includes the record-breaking 400,000 participants that joined the movement this year, a jump from the 250,000 figure in 2019, and 170,000 in 2018.

One million official Veganuary participants in just seven years is a huge achievement, but the momentum behind the plant-based revolution will see us hit two million in no time. Matthew Glover, Co-Founder & Chair of Veganuary

The real figure is likely to be much higher than one million, given that people around the world are believed to have taken part in the event without signing the official pledge online. A significant number have also continued their plant-based diet after the month of January. According to research conducted by data insights firm Kantar, the actual number of people who have participated without officially signing up is around ten times higher. 

Commenting on the milestone, Matthew Glover, the co-founder and chair of the charity, said: “Now Veganuary is a bigger feature in the retail calendar than Christmas, reflecting the ever-increasing number of people choosing plant-based food.” 

“One million official Veganuary participants in just seven years is a huge achievement, but the momentum behind the plant-based revolution will see us hit two million in no time.”

Signatories to the pledge have come from every single country in the world apart from North Korea, Vatican City and Eswatini. In 2020, the most growth in supporters was recorded in Latin America, followed by India – two major markets where plant-based foods have experienced a surge in demand.

All over the world, consumers have been shifting towards plant-based foods more than ever before, particularly in the wake of the pandemic, which has exposed the vulnerabilities and dangers of the animal meat supply chain. With the trend firmly in the mainstream, food giants have been scrambling to tap into the market – the latest research shows that almost 40% of the biggest food manufacturers and retailers in the world now have dedicated plant-based teams

Plant-based meat makers have also celebrated a big win in Europe just last week, when EU leaders prevented a proposal that would ban plant-based alternatives from using “meaty” terms like sausages or burgers on their labels.

AR isn’t just ‘exciting’, it’s practical

  • Augmented reality might seem like a daunting new frontier for the average business, but adopting this new technology is a lot easier than it seems
  • With an anticipated 3.8 billion smartphone users in 2021, more people are using mobile tech to experience the world, from enhanced museum tours to Animoji
  • If you haven’t already considered it, AR can be a smart, practical form of smart marketing and branding.

Augmented reality might seem like a daunting new frontier for the average business, but adopting this new technology is a lot easier than it seems. With an anticipated 3.8 billion smartphone users in 2021, more people are using mobile tech to experience the world, from enhanced museum tours to Animoji. If you haven’t already considered it, AR can be a smart, practical form of smart marketing and branding.

First, it’s important to distinguish between augmented reality and virtual reality. Virtual reality is an almost wholly-digital experience that requires special hardware to immerse yourself in a new environment. Augmented reality is a combination of the digital and physical worlds, where the former is often “layered” over the latter. If you’ve used custom Snapchat filters or played Pokemon Go, you’ve already tried AR without even realizing it. 

But the great thing about AR is that it doesn’t require buying new hardware. Virtual reality, while still an exciting new realm, isn’t as widely accessible as AR. For starters, you need pricey new gadgets to play around in VR, but anyone with a smartphone and an internet connection can tap into a well-crafted AR experience. 

“The biggest benefit of AR is the simplicity with which you can build on top of the existing world that a user is already familiar with to teach them new things or show them new information that was previously unavailable,” says Gal Oppenheimer, who manages Contentstack’s Solutions Architecture Team. AR has, for instance, become a huge part of our daily reality, with Zoom virtual backgrounds helping people continue to meet and work collaboratively regardless of their environment. 

Speaking to Oppenheimer and Contentstack’s marketing director Varia Makagonova reveals that augmented reality is a particularly effective, forward-thinking strategy for companies in retail, museums/education, and home improvement; AR works best to convey important, relevant information to customers in a quick, intuitive way. Best of all, it’s surprisingly straightforward to implement, especially if you’re working with an experienced content management team. 

Great AR needs great content 

As a headless CMS, Contentstack leads the way in helping businesses create innovative content experiences. In 2020, blogs and websites are no longer the main avenues of brand communication – modern customer experiences can include everything from chatbots and apps to new types of streaming media. Contentstack helps you adapt to new technology quickly and seamlessly, no matter the platform. 

“When people look at AR, they only see the end experience,” says Oppenheimer. “And what people don’t realize is really there are two pieces to an AR experience. There’s the experience the consumer sees… and that is really just a 3D model, a color map, and a rendering library.” Then there’s the content, which can require just as much attention, depending on the scope of a company’s product lineup. This is where Contentstack comes into play. 

A great content platform needs to be streamlined and easy to use, especially if you’re going to be working with new channels and touchpoints like Augmented Reality applications. With the right tools, it’s easy to build a well-organized, flexible content library that can be used to power all kinds of content-rich experiences.   

And when it comes to retail, that often means making sure you can easily plug in personalization and e-commerce technologies into these experiences. As Oppenheimer points out, “it doesn’t matter if you have the biggest library of content available for your AR application to use. If the customer doesn’t see the one product that they are looking for to try on or learn more about, the app has not done its job for them.” 

Building and tending to a useful content experience doesn’t have to be painful, though. “We have customers that have well over 2 million products in their Contentstack,” Oppenheimer says. “And when they do a release, sometimes that’s 200 products going live the same day… being able to facilitate that process easily, and then making sure that content appears in the mobile application that has all the rich AR content at the end, that’s where we come in.”

(TSX-V: PYR; OTCQB: PYRNF; FRA: 8PY) (the “Company” or “PyroGenesis”), a high-tech company that designs, develops, manufactures and commercializes advanced plasma processes and products, is pleased to announce that, further to its press release dated October 6, 2020, it has received conditional approval from the Toronto Stock Exchange (the “TSX”) to graduate from the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV”) and list its common shares on the TSX.

“This is a significant milestone for the Company,” said P. Peter Pascali, CEO and Chair of PyroGenesis. “We are proud to have been conditionally accepted by Canada’s largest and most credible exchange. Having spent just under 10 years on the TSX Venture Exchange (whom we would like to thank for providing us the ideal forum on which we could attract the capital to finance our growth), we believe it is time for us to graduate to the TSX, the premier destination for publicly traded companies. This represents another step in management’s efforts to broaden our appeal to a larger shareholder base while at the same time raising the Company’s profile in the investment community. It underscores our long-term commitment to increasing investor awareness and generating shareholder value. As we continue to successfully execute our growth strategy, the graduation to the TSX should enhance the liquidity of our stock and enable us to continue building long-term shareholder value.”

Final approval of the listing is subject to the Company fulfilling all of the requirements of the TSX, including the completion of the Company’s public offering for which it has filed a preliminary prospectus on October 20, 2020. Upon, and subject to, receipt of final TSX approval, PyroGenesis’ common shares would be delisted from the TSXV and begin trading on the TSX under the symbol “PYR”.

Separately, the Company is pleased to announce the creation of a new Board position; Lead Independent Director. We are happy to announce that Mr. Robert Radin has agreed to be the Company’s first Lead Independent Director.

In an unrelated matter, the Company also announces today that it has granted stock options to acquire 200,000 common shares of the Company to Mr. Rodney Beveridge, Director, and 50,000 Common Shares to Ms. Rodayna Kafal, Director & Vice President, Investor Relations and Strategic Business Development. The stock options have an exercise price of $4.00 per common share and are exercisable over a period of five (5) years. The options are granted in accordance with the Company’s stock option plan.
