Frost & Sullivan: 4-D Printing to Usher in Age of Low-Labor, Fast-Paced Product Manufacturing

— The aerospace, defense, automotive and healthcare industries will lead in the adoption of this technology

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Aug. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Four-dimensional (4-D) printing develops materials that alter their properties and behaviors based on external stimuli such as changes in temperature. This advanced technology is poised to have a disruptive effect in multiple industries. In the near future, 4-D printing will revolutionize the business landscape by printing objects ranging from human organs to parts used in the aerospace and automotive sectors.

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan, Advances in 4-D Printing, expects the aerospace, defense, automotive and healthcare industries to be the first to adopt 4-D printing technology after its commercialization. Other industries will follow suit as the technology matures.

For complimentary access to more information on this research, please visit: http://bit.ly/1z2zgxs.

“4-D printing, an extension of three-dimensional printing, is superior to conventional manufacturing techniques in terms of performance, efficiency and quality, and can create new products with increased capabilities,” noted Technical Insights Research Analyst Jithendranath Rabindranath. “Unlike conventional manufacturing techniques, it facilitates self-assembly of materials required to manufacture parts and products, thereby speeding up the process and reducing the need for labor.”

Much work remains for market participants, as 4-D printing technology is in an early stage of development. Rapid prototyping technology has not yet been widely tested for large-scale applications and physical object manufacturing, and thus the validity of 4-D printing technology for such implementation scenarios has not been clearly demonstrated.

As with any new technology, the initial implementation cost of 4-D printing is an adoption hurdle. In cases where companies are willing to make this investment, product prices tend to be high in order to recover costs incurred and maintain profitability levels in the face of modest production volumes.

“After a few years of mass commercialization, the cost of employing 4-D printing technology will decrease, prompting several companies across a wide range of industries to integrate this technology into their manufacturing systems,” stated Rabindranath. “Uptake will also strengthen due to the positive funding environment, which encourages confederations, research laboratories, universities, startups and big market participants especially in North America to invest in R&D.”

Biocompatible Protective Coatings Widen Application Scope in Medical Devices, Finds Frost & Sullivan

— Blended products that include therapeutic coatings of different materials are making waves in the industry

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Aug. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Innovations will surge in the protective coatings industry by 2020, giving rise to a range of improved biocompatible and durable coatings that enable implant devices for use in orthopedic, orthodontic and cardiac applications. The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) are creating new standards for upcoming industry trends in protective coatings, further encouraging patent developments.

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan, Innovations in Protective Coatings for Medical Devices, finds that increasing biocompatibility is a major driver for implant coatings. Successful implant coatings enhance biocompatibility and promote healing processes by minimizing tissue rejection and better anchoring implants to the targeted area.

For complimentary access to more information on this research, please visit: http://bit.ly/1sl6idw.

Passivation – accomplished by coating implant material with polymer layers – is an upcoming area of research in coatings for biomedical applications. Passivation techniques have been successfully used in development of coatings and biomaterials to manufacture the most biocompatible implants.

“This is particularly important in cases of load-bearing implants with need for mechanical strength,” said Technical Insights Research Analyst Sanchari Chatterjee. “Developing specialized coatings and techniques that prevent aggressive cell growth and aid the production of desirable endothelial cells rather than smooth muscle cells will also be crucial.”

However, protective coatings require sophisticated raw materials that incur high costs. For instance, low availability of titanium, coupled with demand from industries such as aerospace, industrial and recreation make it an expensive resource.

Developing novel coating materials has been a trend in the industry for the last two years.  For example, use of spider silk, which is hypoallergenic, biodegradable and usable as coating for implants or as a drug carrier in pharmaceutics, is being researched as a coating for silicone implants.

In the meantime, combination products such as therapeutic coatings of different materials are creating a stir in the industry. Coatings that use solutions as surface treatments too are gaining momentum. For instance, bone implant surfaces enriched with biomolecules can accelerate the bone healing process.

“Research institutes have joined forces with industry players to evaluate a wide variety of biomolecules such as growth factors, bioactive proteins, enzymes and non-viral genes,” added Technical Insights Research Analyst Vivek Ninkileri. “As is evident, stakeholder initiatives, especially collaboration among research institutes, academia and medical device manufacturers will play a major role in the advancement of protective coating technologies.”

Innovations in Protective Coatings for Medical Devices, a part of the Technical Insights (http://www.technicalinsights.frost.com) subscription, analyses key innovations in protective coatings for medical devices to distinguish the chief developments and challenges in the market. Opportunity strategy evaluation, technology roadmap, impact analysis, and R&D development strategies are also discussed.

Frost & Sullivan: Need for Platform Availability and Combat Readiness Strengthens Global Military Systems Support-in-Service Market

— Joint ventures with local suppliers will allow international participants to capitalise on growing markets

LONDON, Aug. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Owing to tight budgets, the Ministries of Defence (MoDs) in various countries are looking to bring down the cost of operations and maintenance without compromising on the availability of their key capabilities. This shift in focus from large-scale platform procurement to on-going systems support is driving the global military systems support-in-service market.

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan, Global Military Systems Support-in-Service Market Assessment, finds that the market earned revenues of $16.36 billion in 2013 and estimates this to reach $21.10 billion in 2022. The study covers support-in-service for air, ground and sea systems.

MoDs are looking to engage service providers that are willing to break down scheduled heavy maintenance into on-going systems support, thus enabling 24/7 platform availability while reducing the burden of holding a large inventory of spares. With this rising need for more efficient, cost-effective maintenance procedures, performance-based contracts are gaining prominence.

“The advent of data-driven, IT-infrastructure-guided maintenance programs that continuously monitor military platforms has added momentum to the implementation of performance-based logistic processes,” said Frost & Sullivan Aerospace and Defence Research Analyst Arun Kumar Sampathkumar. “In 2013, the Department of Defence in the US alone invested over $80 million in performance-based maintenance contracts.”

While performance-based contracts for support-in-service programs are beneficial, negotiating feasible platform-availability terms with customers is the biggest challenge faced by service providers. Military maintenance infrastructure, platform fleet size, service-provider capability, and supply-chain mechanics are all crucial factors that must be taken into account.

In addition, these contracts cover only the short term, as shrinking military budgets restrict MoDs from issuing long-term performance based contracts. The slowdown in international military operations is also decreasing platform utilisation, in turn, affecting market revenues.

One way to maximise opportunities is to partner with key platform providers. This implies taking the responsibility of providing systems support or becoming a ‘manufacturer-endorsed systems support provider.’ Recent platform procurement contracts already indicate that the trend of combining platform and service procurement is gathering pace.

“Finally, those service providers looking to expand into emerging markets can collaborate with local service providers to lower capital investment on maintenance infrastructure and establish a strong presence in those regions,” suggested Sampathkumar. “Partnering with local suppliers is also welcomed by governments that are otherwise conservative in choosing international service providers for military support.”

Frost & Sullivan: Heavy Maintenance Segment Dominates the Military Support in Service Market

LONDON, July 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — The heavy maintenance segment has the highest potential for revenue generation among military support in services, as the defence sector is evolving into a support in service (SIS) oriented market. Expensive cost of new combat platforms purchase, along with budget pressures, is compelling the defence sector to extend the lifecycles of military platforms far beyond the original average of 30 years. This translates to substantial revenues for military SIS providers.

Additionally, as older platforms require heavier, more intensive, and expensive maintenance, most original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) will experience higher revenues from maintenance and retrofit contracts.

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan, Global Military Support in Service Platforms Market Assessment, finds that the market earned revenues of $50.73 billion in 2013 and estimates this to reach $63.58 billion by 2022, at a compound annual growth rate of 2.5 percent. North America is likely to be the biggest military SIS platforms market globally. However, it is the Asia-Pacific market that is likely to register the highest compound annual growth rate. The study covers 5 main SIS activity segments: line maintenance, heavy maintenance, spare parts, modernisation/upgrades, and training.

The SIS market remains relatively unaffected by the downturn, mainly because the complexity of combat platforms compels the use of permanent support.

Innovations such as additive manufacturing are supporting the SIS market by enabling deployed, frontline units to print required parts on site from available materials such as aluminium, plastic, titanium and steel. This has revolutionised access to necessary parts for potential life-saving military equipment by allowing spares to be produced on the spot instead of having to be shipped.

“Acknowledging the rising sophistication of weaponry and tightening budgets, defence contractors are expected to provide SIS packages as a part of the main contract for the supply of modern combat platforms,” said Frost & Sullivan Aerospace & Defence Industry Analyst Dominik Kimla, PhD. “They will also be seeking to enter into partnerships with local military SIS providers by setting up joint-ventures and strategic partnerships due to the growing role of local companies.”

This collaborative approach is in line with the industrialisation policy of governments, aimed at enhancing national capabilities through technology transfers and local partnerships.

“Defence suppliers must demonstrate the ways in which outsourcing of SIS can lead to reduced operational costs in the next five to seven years,” noted Kimla. “This is critical, as Ministries of Defence are looking for methods to reduce costs and simultaneously improve the readiness of their forces.”

Overall, the market will continue to grow despite the cutbacks in the defence sector, as governments all over the world are attempting to streamline their spending and outsource SIS activities to private companies.
