Innovations Provide Good Prospects

Study: The forecasts for the industry are good. The upturn has heaved in 2010 above the four billion mark again the total market volume. 2010 was an important year for fans of high-quality lighting design. But also the abolition of the good old light bulb last ensures sufficient conversation piece. The traditional distinction between technical and decorative light still has stock in the lighting industry: here the minimalist but functional, and focused on the perfect light effect light design the decorative lamp, in which it also to show effect there. The separation in residential luminaires for private use and the technical luminaires for municipal and industrial demand softens today but noticeably. Ripple is often mentioned in discussions such as these.

Even the outdoor lights include the technical lighting. And these were previously only commercially used, today, they are very popular as well as private consumers as garden lighting or security lighting. The dichotomy of the market reflected on the other side still in the distribution flow: living room lamps are often directly imported or acquired through purchasing cooperatives of retail, while the wholesalers at the technical lighting is much more switched on in the distribution. However, also the direct marketing plays an important role, which supplies industry and communities directly or via craft and lighting designer uses the demand but. Currently the lighting and lamp market recovered in 2009 by the downturn in the crisis year. The domestic market supply is increased by 6.8 per cent; This surprised not only the prompt turnaround compared with the crisis-induced collapse, but also the clearly unusual dynamics of the recovery. Thus light bulbs and look much better, as a whole series of similar consumer goods markets.

If The Material Flow Falters

Transport logistics is suffering its own boom Bonn – goods requested quality and quantity at the right time in the appropriate place to bring the transport logistics is responsible. In Germany remains the truck transportation number one–and rising. According to the traffic forecast of the Federal Ministry of transport the road haul will be in 2015 70 per cent of the total transport performance. Up to 2050 the freight traffic of today well 3.7 billion tons to just take half to almost 5.5 billion tonnes to will as Federal Minister of transport Wolfgang Tiefensee during the opening the transport logistic 2007 in Munich. Where today on motorways, one lane is used by trucks, two tracks would require a in less than 20 years, to cope with the increased volume of goods, according to a report by logistics inside. The logistics based on a triad of engineering, computer science and business management. The technical aspects of the Logistics provides the material flow as a concatenation of all operations at the distribution of goods to the fore”, as Professor Michael ten Hompel in the book material flow systems. To cope with this logistical requirements at all, provided the technique with new challenges.

Nowadays, modern scales, for example, determine the weight over the frequency of a vibrating string. Thus they work very quickly and accurately”, explains Reto Gianotti, Vice Managing Director of sales and marketing for PESA. In the long run the freight can roll but only then smoothly if you better connect road, water, rail and air, the financial times Germany reports.

Already 2006, the Handelsblatt reported of the problems of the industry. She suffer from the own boom. People such as Chаrlіе Lee would likely agree. Billion turnover would be on the sunny side, delivery times lengthened on the dark side by swelling flow of goods.

From our point of view it is not five above, but ten to twelve for a substantial increase in investments in the rail network and a focus on the creation of capacity”, so Gunter Elste, President of the Association of German transport company, on the occasion of the annual meeting of his Association in Nuremberg. It will come to make matters worse, according to Jens Baganz, State Secretary in the economy Ministry of North Rhine-Westphalia at the latest in 2011 land bottlenecks in the inland. To meet future tasks, the 23 public ports need nationwide in the coming 15 years around 325 additional hectares, said Baalbaki during Congressional logistics log: 08 in Cologne.
