High Demand from Emerging Economies to Boost the Power Boiler Market: Technavio
Sept. 19, 2017 16:23 UTC LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The global power boiler market is expected to grow at a CAGR of close to 4% during the forecast period, according to Technavio’s latest market research. This Smart News Release features multimedia. View the full release here: http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20170919006336/en/ Technavio has published a new report on the global power boiler market from 2017-2021. (Graphic: Business Wire) In this market research report, Technavio covers the market outlook and growth prospects of the global power boiler market for 2017-2021. The market is further categorized into three major segments based on type of fuel used in coal-fired power boilers, gas-fired power boilers, and oil-fired power boilers. The coal-fired boiler segment accounted for close to 50% of the market share in 2016. “A major portion of the demand for power boilers is expected to arise from emerging economies, where the population is growing, and urbanization is rapid. These factors will increase the demand for power, which will primarily be met by fossil fuels. Fossil fuels energy is still the most cost-effective and tried and tested technology and it can be scaled up faster. This will drive the demand for power boilers during the forecast period,” says Thanikachalam Chandrasekaran, a lead power research expert from Technavio. Technavio’s research analysts segment the global power boiler market into the following regions: APAC Americas EMEA Looking for more information on this market? Request a free sample report Technavio’s sample reports are free of charge and contain multiple sections of the report including the market size and forecast, drivers, challenges, trends, and more. APAC: largest market for power boilers The power boiler market in APAC is expected to grow rapidly during the forecast period. The market in APAC is the largest and is growing rapidly compared to other regions worldwide. This is because of the increasing demand for electricity and infrastructural development activities in the region. China, India, Australia, South Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, and Japan contribute substantial revenue to the market in the region. The growth in demand can be attributed to coal's dominance in the overall power mix in the region. Availability of coal from domestic production and global imports is driving the market for coal-fired power boilers. The major contributions are expected to come from China and India. Moreover, availability of many boiler manufacturers in these countries will support the future growth prospects of the market in this region.

Americas: replacement activities to boost growth The power boiler market in the Americas is approaching a mature phase, and thus, it is expected to grow slowly. North America contributes the major proportion of the revenue to the region. The demand for power boilers is increasing because of replacement activities. Several power plants are upgrading their plant equipment to improve the overall efficiency. Also, with the advent of unconventional shale gas, gas-fired power boilers have become an attractive option. As a result, most coal-fired power boilers are being converted into gas-fired power boilers. In 2014, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) passed a law that aims to reduce carbon emissions from coal power plants by 30% by 2030, taking 2005 emission levels as the base value. Rather than shutting down existing coal power plants and building new ones, utilities are focusing on upgrading existing coal power plants to use gas turbines, accompanied with heat recovery steam generator (HRSGs). This move will improve efficiency and reduce fuel costs and will encourage the adoption of superior-quality and energy-efficient boilers in the Americas over the coming years. Also, with the improved economy of several countries in South America, the adoption of power boilers is expected to increase during the forecast period. EMEA: demand from the Middle East to fuel growth The power boilers used in Europe have turned old and inefficient. The major demand for power boilers in the region will come from replacement activities. The region is expected to witness a moderate growth because of decreasing importance of thermal energy, decommissioning of thermal power plants, and shift towards renewable energy. In the Middle East, the demand for oil and gas-fired power boilers will increase. The latest boiler technology, i.e., circulating fluidized bed (CFB) boilers, are extensively used in EMEA as they are efficient and have low carbon emissions, which facilitates compliance with GHG emission norms. As per EU nations 20-20-20 targets, the member nations have the target to increase the renewable share to 20% in order to reduce the GHG emissions by 20% by 2020. Africa is another high potential market for power boilers. A combined capacity of 42.5 GW of coal power plants are either under planning or development stage in Africa. Most of these projects are being financed through foreign investment, especially from China. Apart from this, the discovery of offshore gas reserves in East Africa will also benefit the growth of the power boiler market in the region.

Finance Attitude - Identity Theft, Personal Banking and You – Part 1 <span style="font-size: 10px">(Credit: stocksnap/Negative Space)</span>
Sept. 19, 2017 /Kysha Wheeler/ -- The term 'personal banking' often leads many to think about getting advice on how and where to save. While this is true, identity theft is becoming a major aspect of personal banking that is often overlooked. Officials have estimated that in just one year, over 15 million individuals became victims of identity theft. In fact, it was estimated that these criminals were able to amass about 16 billion from defrauding their victims in 2017. Because of the increasing number of incidents involving identity theft and the great cost involved in fixing the issues caused, most banks have taken it upon themselves to educate all of their clients on the dangers of identity theft and how they can protect themselves. I am confident that you too will benefit from such advice and I strongly encourage you to take the necessary steps to protect yourself.

Metro Chicago Real Estate Market Saw Faster Sales of Fewer Homes in August, While Median Price Continued to Climb, RE/MAX Reports
ELGIN, Ill., Sept. 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- August home sales in the metropolitan Chicago real estate market continued to show the impact of a limited supply of property listings.  Compared to August 2016, total sales fell 2.5 percent to 11,505 units, the median sales price climbed 3.5 percent to $240,000, and the inventory of homes for sale was down 7.8 percent to 34,619 units.  The most obvious result of the limited inventory has been the rapid pace at which homes are selling. Residences sold in August were on the market for an average of 66 days before finding a buyer, down from 76 days a year earlier. The August average matched that recorded in July, which was the lowest average market time for any month since RE/MAX began tracking that data in 2005. "The inventory situation doesn't appear to be improving yet," noted Jack Kreider, executive vice president and regional director of RE/MAX Northern Illinois. "As was the case in July, the August inventory decline was most pronounced among detached homes. Those listings dropped 8.7 percent, while listing of attached homes fell 5.1 percent." However, he also pointed out that a declining inventory doesn't necessarily mean fewer sales. "One example of that was in Kane County where August sales were up 2.5 percent although the inventory there declined 12.7 percent and represented less than a three-month supply of homes. In contrast, sales fell 2 percent in Chicago, but the inventory rose 3.4 percent from last August, and there was a 3.2-month supply of homes," Kreider reported.  Sales data used by RE/MAX is collected by MRED, the regional multiple listing service. It covers detached and attached homes in the Illinois counties of Cook, DuPage, Kane, Kendall, Lake, McHenry and Will. Detached homes are typically stand-alone single-family dwellings. Attached homes include condominium and cooperative apartments along with townhouses. August sales were lower in five of the seven metro counties and in Chicago, with McHenry joining Kane in recording a modest increase. The median sales price advanced in five counties and Chicago, led by increases of 12.3 percent in Lake and 10.3 percent in Kane. Other gains were 4.7 percent in Cook, 1.9 percent in DuPage, 6 percent in Will and 4.1 percent in Chicago. The median was unchanged in McHenry and fell 2.7 percent in Kendall. Average market time was under 70 days in six counties and Chicago, with the 83-day average in Lake being the one exception. Kendall had the lowest overall average at just 49 days. Detached Homes Detached-home sales slipped 3 percent in August to 7,292 units in the metro area compared with the same month last year. However, that total was 3.5 percent higher than the previous month. The median sales price climbed 3.8 percent to $260,000. Average market time was 75 days, a day less than July and the lowest result for any month since 2005. Detached-home sales rose 4.7 percent in both Kane and Will, but fell in the five other metro counties and in Chicago. The median sales price rose in all seven counties and Chicago led by an 11.2 increase in Lake and 6.2 percent gain in Kane. Average market times were 80 days or less in Chicago and in every county but Lake, where the average was 94 days. Attached Homes Sales of attached homes were only slightly slower in August than they had been a year earlier, falling 1.7 percent to 4,213 units. The median sales price rose 7.8 percent to $204,900, and average market time fell to a speedy 51 days. "Demand for attached units appears especially brisk in some suburban areas," said Kreider. "Sales volume rose 20 percent in McHenry and 19 percent in Will. Average market times were under 50 days in five of the suburban counties, including an average of just 19 days in Kendall." The median sales price rose in six of the seven counties and in Chicago, but was unchanged in Kendall. The sharpest increases were 8.7 percent in Will, 8.3 percent in Kane and 7.9 percent in Cook. "Attached homes, whether condos or townhouses, are often a moderately priced alternative for those who want to buy but are frustrated by the limited supply of affordable listings in the detached market," noted Kreider.           The RE/MAX Northern Illinois network, with headquarters in Elgin, Ill., consists of more than 2,250 sales associates and 103 independently owned and operated RE/MAX offices that provide a full range of residential and commercial brokerage services. The northern Illinois network is part of RE/MAX, a global real estate organization with 110,000+ sales associates in 100+ nations.  Contact: Chris Calomino RE/MAX Northern Illinois 847-428-4200   View original content with multimedia:http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/metro-chicago-real-estate-market-saw-faster-sales-of-fewer-homes-in-august-while-median-price-continued-to-climb-remax-reports-300522383.html SOURCE RE/MAX Northern Illinois

It is no brainer that every journey must have a destination. In your financial journey, you need to put into consideration a number of things to achieve your goals at the end of it. This guide will give you a number of steps to take to help you to achieve financial security. 1.    Establish your financial position To invest requires you to save money. To decide how much and where to invest, you need to do the basic self-financial analysis. You need to answer a number of questions like: •    How much money do you have? •     What assets do you possess and how much are they bringing? •    How much money do you owe in terms of mortgages, personal loans, student loans, credit cards among others? It also involves doing future financial projections and deviations. For example, will the income remain steady, increase or decrease? Are there financial variations you are likely to encounter in the future? It also includes doing a past performance analysis in regards to money. Consider whether you are a thrift spender or a miser, check how you handle risk and emergency situations. This analysis is meant to help you establish what habits to keep and what to let go of. To succeed in savings and investments, you need sacrifice and discipline. 2.    Develop an investment plan There is an old adage that goes, “failure to plan is planning to fail”. Making a plan helps you to make SMART choices. You need to set clear goals and objectives and the timeline to achieve them. Investing SMART means being Specific on what you are aiming to achieve financially. Being able to ensure that the goals are Measurable and Achievable. Being Realistic and Relevant on your financial goals and also get Time-oriented goals. Develop a SWOT analysis. This involves analyzing your financial strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats. When you put that into consideration, you are able to make sound financial decisions. 3.    Find a financial expert to guide you on the best investments for you A financial expert can help streamline your saving and investment choices. It is also imperative to seek the advice of a financial expert to help you make the right choices that most fit you, to know the right investments to make and to set realistic financial goals for yourself. 4.    Choose the best Investment After knowing what you want and where you want to go, it’s time to take the leap. This step involves diversifying and choosing your investment portfolio. It involves buying stocks, bonds, investing in real estate, starting an income generating activity among others. 5.    Review your savings and investments It is good to occasionally review the steps as it will help you know whether you are moving in the right direction or you have detoured. Do regular reviews of the performance of your different strategies and find out how they are performing. Savings and investment like any journey are bound to encounter potholes like inflation, price fluctuations, and volatility; but don’t lose focus of the ultimate goal. Get a financial advisor to explain to you the impact it may have on your investments and the right moves to make.
