Broker Servicing Rankings

Brokers represent a critical channel for insurers to distribute products, particularly in the commercial lines space, where policies are complex. It is therefore essential for insurers to understand the needs and perceptions of brokers in order to adapt to and build strong relationships. Easy and convenient access to product offerings and services is a key, as is the provision of added support and guidance.

Broker

Best in Class by Service

Brokers are increasingly looking online to cater for smaller risks, and they also expect claims services and the speed of response to queries to be quicker and more efficient than ever. Keeping up with the way brokers look to trade is critical to maintaining and enhancing insurer-broker relationships, which will ultimately help build better customer outcomes.
Insurers optimizing and developing their online channel are often given recognition by brokers – namely Aviva, AXA, Allianz with the insurer being largely favoured for its e-trading capabilities and the support of clients online. Therefore, providing brokers with multi-channel and multi-device access should be a focal point for insurers going forward.

Gas Insulated Switchgear Market, Update 2016 – Global Market Size, Competitive Landscape, Key Country Analysis and Forecasts to 2020

Global Gas Insulated Switchgear Market Expected to Reach $8.61 Billion by 2020

The global gas insulated switchgear (GIS) market is expected to show steady growth in the future and reach $8.61 billion in 2020 from $5.23 billion in 2015. In the emerging economies of Asia-Pacific and the Middle East, extensive power plant capacity additions, economic growth, and the need to improve access to electricity are driving grid expansion and the GIS market. In developed economies like North America and Europe, the need to upgrade the existing aging transmission network is also driving the GIS market. Globally countries are establishing cross-border networks and renewable installations to have a secure and reliable power which is driving the GIS market, especially in the high voltage segment.

Smaller Footprint and Higher Reliability to Drive the GIS Market

The major factors driving the growth of the global GIS market are increasing urbanization and growing space constraints near load centers. Land cost is very high in the densely populated urban regions where new substation or capacity addition is very difficult. Therefore, utilities prefer GIS which can be fitted into an existing building or underground, consuming much less space than Air Insulated Switchgear (AIS), without disturbing the aesthetics of the region.

Another major factor is the high reliability which provides easy operation and maintenance as all components are enclosed in a single gastight compartment. Globally utilities focus on increasing the reliability of T&D networks which drives the GIS market. Moreover, the world’s rising electricity demand is leading to increased investment in the expansion of T&D networks. In the future, GIS manufacturing companies are expected to bring smaller and more efficient switchgear into the market. Due to growing environmental concerns about sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) gas, manufacturers introduced models which will extensively curb the leakage of SF6 into the atmosphere. In future SF6 is expected to be replaced by gases with very low global warming potential (GWP) and pilot projects are underway.

نتيجة بحث الصور عن ‪Packaging Industry‬‏

The majority of organizations intend to expand in the current market and focus on new product development over the next six months

According to the report’s survey results, the top three priorities over the next six months are expansion in the current market, new product development, and improving operational efficiency, as highlighted by 66%, 51%, and 48% of respondents respectively. Some of the crucial factors such as the growing population, emerging middle class, and the rising demand for both safe food and clean water are likely to intensify the current market expansion within the packaging industry.

Moreover, the growing consumer demand for convenient and portable packaging motivates manufacturers to focus on new product development designs, and water-resistant and eco-friendly properties, which will accelerate the growth of innovative products over the next six months. Evidencing the new product development trend, in September 2016, James Cropper, the premium paper, and packaging products manufacturer based in the UK, developed sustainable molded paper packaging product as an alternative to plastic packaging. The company expects to gain additional revenue by expanding its business in different packaging categories within the country. Furthermore, in October 2016, AR Metallizing, based in Belgium, launched a new SilberBoard packaging solution, a compostable packaging alternative of metallized PET board packaging.

Furthermore, improving operational efficiency is also one of the important priorities for packaging industries as organizations attempting to reduce costs and boost profitability.
