Construction Project Management Services Procurement Category Market Research Report from IBISWorld Has Been Updated


Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 18, 2014

Construction project management services have a buyer power score of 2.7 out of 5. According to IBISWorld analyst Sean Windle, this score indicates that neither buyers nor suppliers command an overwhelming amount of leverage when it comes to negotiating the purchase of construction management and related services.

Because each construction project is different and presents unique challenges, construction project management is a service requiring a significant degree of specialization. Suppliers must not only have experience performing design, contracting and management work in the buyer’s area of development, but they must also be familiar with applicable local, state and federal regulations, continues Windle. Market suppliers include AECOM, Bechtel Corporation and CH2M Hill Inc. Furthermore, suppliers must be able to use their experience and knowledge to best meet the buyer’s specific budget and time constraints, a factor that limits buyer power. High switching costs also diminish buyer power. Once a project is off the ground, the cost of switching suppliers can be incredibly expensive because any new vendor will have to go through the same extensive vetting process and be brought up to speed with the standing of the project.

Increasing demand following the recession has also caused price growth to accelerate in recent years, which has reduced buyer power. For example, after growing lethargically in 2011, nonresidential construction activity surged 12.7% in 2012 and is anticipated to increase strongly in 2014.

Despite these factors, some market characteristics help lift buyer power as well, such as an increasing number of suppliers entering the marketplace. Despite the moderate degree of market share concentration and the presence of large-scale suppliers with significant market share, high demand and strong profit margins have spurred more suppliers to enter the market. This trend has given buyers an increasing number of suppliers from which to choose. Furthermore, the federal government, which is a major source of demand and revenue for suppliers in this market, is defined by steady and reliable funding, which aids buyer power.

Stringent Quality, Performance, and Environmental Standards Drive the Global Pigments and Dyes Market, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.

San Jose, California (PRWEB) July 09, 2014

Follow us on LinkedIn Pigments are colored or fluorescent particulate organic and inorganic solids, usually insoluble and unaffected both physically and chemically by the vehicle or substrate in which they are used. Organic pigments have higher brightness and tinting strength and are capable of replacing inorganic pigments. Commercial types of pigments include dry powder pigments, flushed colors, presscakes, pigment concentrates, fluid dispersions, surface treated pigments and resin bonds. Dyes are coloring pigments with brilliant shades that impart color to the substrate in solution form.

Surging demand for pigments in key end-use markets such as paints and coatings, plastics, paper, and printing inks, among others, represent the primary driver for the strong evolution of the market over the past few years. The construction industry, which uses pigments in paints and varnishes and in construction materials in the form of roof tiles, paving stones, etc., also represents an important growth indicator for the pigments market. Future growth of the market will be driven by increasing applications of pigments in cosmetics, ceramics, and glass manufacturing for providing modern colors, gloss and special visual effects as well as innovative packaging. Demand for pigments in the printing ink segment is expected to grow significantly supported by increased printed packaging across F&B, pharmaceutical, and consumer health industries as well as the increased use of color printers.

New, high quality, high performance and innovative pigments that offer additional properties such as UV, corrosion resistance, anti-bacterial and self-cleaning are poised to benefit market prospects in the near term. Widespread adoption of natural, organic and eco-friendly dyes that overcome the drawbacks of traditional dyes such as toxicity, environmental hazards and high energy consumption is also expected to bode well for the dyes market. Increasing prominence of luminescent pigments and fluorescent dyes in security applications such as tamper-evident seals for pharmaceutical and other products; and in brand protection applications where they are used to print proprietary invisible security prints on product labels, credit cards, and licenses, are expected to expand market opportunities in the next few years.

As stated by the new market research report on Pigments and Dyes, Asia-Pacific represents the largest and the fastest growing market worldwide with a CAGR of 8.3% over the analysis period. Steadily growing economies, rapid industrialization, elimination of quotas on textile industry, thriving end-use industries, and a paradigm shift in production to low-cost Asian countries represent important growth drivers in the region. China, Taiwan and Korea possess stronghold in disperse dyes, while India leads in the production of reactive dyes worldwide.

Key players covered in the report include ALTANA AG, BASF SE, Cathay Pigments, Inc., Clariant International Limited, DIC Corporation, Sun Chemical Corporation, Dainichiseika Color & Chemicals Mfg. Co., Ltd., E.I. du Pont de Nemours and Company, Ferro Corp., Heubach GmbH, Huntsman International, LLC, Ishihara Corporation, Kemira Oyj, Kronos Worldwide, Inc., Lanxess AG, Merck KGAA, Silberline Manufacturing Co., Inc., The Shepherd Color Company, Toyo Ink SC Holdings Co., Ltd., and Tronox, Inc., among others.
