The Smart Lighting Market Market was valued at USD 16. 2 billion in 2020 and is expected to reach USD 74. 30 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 29. 30% over the forecast period 2021 - 2026. With the increase in sustainable green building initiatives, owing to environmental concerns and penetration of technology in day to day life, there is rise in the growth of adoption rate.New York, March 05, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reportlinker.com announces the release of the report "Smart Lighting Market - Growth, Trends, COVID-19 Impact, and Forecasts (2021 - 2026)" - https://www.reportlinker.com/p06030477/?utm_source=GNW Green buildings are the buildings which majorly focus on efficiency, effective lifecycle, and performance of the buildings. The rising trend of integrating the technology with the lighting system is gaining momentum.- The development of smart buildings and increase in government initiatives for smart city projects are boosting the adoption of smart lighting, thereby impacting the market’s growth positively. For instance, the Chinese government has begun to adopt and implement various smart city initiatives. There is a robust financial and institutional support from the central and local government for making smart city initiative. The country aims to encourage 100 new smart cities from 2016 to 2020 to lead the country’s urban planning and development. Over 1,000 smart city pilot projects, across the world, are ready for and are under construction, and China is home to about 500 of them, covering small and big cities.- The increasing adoption and decreasing cost of LEDs are driving the market. The high luminous efficacy, reduced energy use, greater lifespan, and decreasing average selling price (ASP) of the LED lighting products compel the consumers to switch to LED technology. As smart lighting is expected to be the future of lighting, various companies, such as Philips, Magiclight, and Xiaom are investing in the technology to reduce the producing cost.- Higher cost of installation is restraining the market to grow. The initial cost required to integrate or replace the lighting system into industrial facilities is a costly affair, especially for small and medium industries. The preference traditionally has been given to compact fluorescent lamps (CFL), LFL, and HIDs as certain end-users prefer the use of traditional lighting sources over new and emerging LEDs, as they have a lower initial cost.- Amidst the outbreak of COVID-19, the market is witnessing halting of production and disruption in the supply chain, leading to weakened growth of industrial output and the decline of light-manufacturing output across significant manufacturing hubs.??Many lighting events were canceled and postponed across the globe due to the COVID-19 outbreak.?Key Market TrendsIndoor Segment is Expected to Witness a Significant Growth through LED penetration- The indoor application has seen significant growth in the smart lighting market and is estimated to have substantial growth over the forecast period. The indoor use of smart lighting includes residential, commercial, and industrial uses. The high adoption of connected lighting systems for residential and commercial purposes resulted in a significant share for indoor application.- The increasing growth in the use of LED lamps inside building premises for lighting provides enormous opportunities for smart lighting-based applications by using the functions of high-speed wireless data communication and indoor lighting infrastructure, which is very cost-effective to be widely utilized across smart buildings.- The power consumption of lights is expected to account for nearly 40% of the total energy consumption of cities. As an important part of smart cites, smart lighting has advantages in terms of access point number in the Internet of Things. The governments are also actively supporting the construction of smart cities. The changing lifestyle and increasing disposal income of people are boosting the demand for interior lighting, especially in hotels, restaurants, and office buildings. The availability of LEDs in various shapes, colors, and brightness is an opening way for new lighting designs.- Since buildings can consume up to one-third of the global energy, they offer one of the most significant opportunities for emission reduction activities. Organizations, like The Capital Group and Philips, are collaborating for seeking to drive primary goals for indoor smart lights after achieving considerable success in replacing all outdoor lights with LED smart lightings by 2025.- Moreover, the growing adoption of smart LEDs in offices is driving the commercial segment in a cost-effective manner, where installing an energy management system is costly, harnessing the intelligence in every LED fixture unit can create smart, and tunable endpoints.Asia-Pacific Witnessed to Hold the Fastest Growing Market- In recent years, the Asia-Pacific region saw significant growth in the smart lighting market, and over the forecast period, it is expected to have the highest growth. Creating and developing smart infrastructure in the region, scaled establishment of smart lighting framework over the private and commercial sectors, and increasing investments by the government on public infrastructure are increasing the growth of the market in the region.- GSMA estimates that China may account for approximately 4.1 billion IoT connections, which is almost one-third of the global IoT connections, by 2025. Smart lighting systems are expected to be the biggest beneficiary of the trend, during the forecast period. Technology giants in the country, like Tencent, Baidu, JD, and Alibaba, are introducing their smart system solutions. Majority of the Chinese market share is distributed among these giants. These domestic brands are trendy and are expected to drive the market growth.- The Indian housing industry is one of the quickest growing sectors of India. Smart City Mission for 100 cities in the country is driving the market for smart lightings. With a new initiative undertaken in Chandigarh, India plans to convert 3,800 street lights into sensor-based intelligent lighting system, under the Smart City Mission. Initiatives like these, taken by other states as well, could drive the market growth during the forecast period.- The Indian government has launched UJALA program, with a target to distribute 770 million LEDs by March 2019. This program aims to rectify the high cost of electrification and the increased emissions from inefficient lighting in the country, amidst the backdrop of electricity demand witnessing a five-fold increase, over the years.Competitive LandscapeThe smart lighting market is highly competitive and consists of several major players. In terms of market share, few of the major players currently dominate the market. However, with smart lightings, many of the companies are increasing their market presence by securing new contracts and acquiring other companies. Key players are Koninklijke Philips NV, Cree Inc., Eaton Corporation, etc. Recent developments in the market are -- May 2019 - Signify and Silicon Labs announced collaboration on an extension of the Friends of Hue program, enabling ecosystem partners to develop smart light switches for Philips Hue systems. Silicon Labs is offering the Zigbee cluster libraries, software tools, reference application, and technical expertise to help participating companies certified by the Friends of Hue program quickly design and produce light switch products guaranteed to work flawlessly with the Philips Hue smart lighting system.- May 2019 - Eaton Corporation introduced an advanced connected lighting platform designed to drive efficient, effective decision-making for building operations called “Trellix”.

Le parcours gonflable du Parc Octopus de Desbiens sera ni plus ni moins l’un des trois plus grand au Canada, selon l’entrepreneur Evens Pelletier. Ce dernier a investi avec Jean Simard 1,5 M$ afin d’ouvrir dès cet été le nouveau parc récréotouristique qui se situera à Desbiens. Ce dernier travaille sur ce projet depuis plus de deux ans, après avoir essayé un parcours gonflable semblable à la plage de Pohénégamook au Bas-Saint-Laurent. Deux autres parcs semblables se situent à Montréal. Joignant l’utile à l’agréable, il s’est associé l’an dernier avec Jean Simard, qui possédait le terrain et qui avait déjà l’intention d’ouvrir un camping. Or, l’emplacement, situé sur la rivière Métabetchouane et le long de la route 169 est jugé idéal pour le futur centre récréotouristique. « On est situés sur les grands axes de tous les gros attraits touristiques de la région. Le jeu d’eau sera visible directement du pont, donc il va capter l’attention. Le parc est quant à lui accessible par le lac Saint-Jean et par la Véloroute », fait valoir Evens Pelletier. En plus du jeu aquatique, il sera également possible de louer des équipements nautiques comme des planches à rames et des kayaks. Hébergement Le site prévoit une trentaine de terrains de camping trois services, dont quelques-uns sans services pour des tentes. Des unités locatives totalisant 20 chambres seront également construites. Si la demande est forte, le nombre de terrains et de chalets pourrait être augmenté. « On vise surtout la location à court terme. Par exemple, quelqu’un peut arriver avec son bateau et accoster au parc, rester quelques jours, voire une semaine et profiter du secteur. On prévoit aussi mettre en place un service de restauration », ajoute Evens Pelletier. L’ouverture est prévue entre le 15 et le 20 juin. Le site entend opérer au moins jusqu’à la fête du Travail en septembre. Quant à la création d’emploi, Evens Pelletier prévoit qu’une quinzaine de personnes seront embauchées comme sauveteurs, préposés à l’accueil, à l’entretien et pour la comptabilité. Prix du bois, pas un frein La hausse du prix et une possible pénurie de bois ne font pas craindre les deux entrepreneurs, qui prévoient entamer la construction du site dès la mi-avril. « Les quais sont construits depuis novembre. Ils sont entreposés, il reste juste à les embarquer. Les chalets, ce n’est pas si mal, la plupart des matériaux sont déjà achetés. Dans certains cas, il y a 15 % d’augmentation de prix en raison de la rareté de matériel. Mais on est capables de l’absorber », a conclu Evens Pelletier. Julien B.

The veterinary endoscopy market was valued at approximately USD 185 million in 2020 and is expected to witness a revenue of USD 258 million in 2026, with a CAGR of 5. 5% over the forecast period.New York, March 05, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reportlinker.com announces the release of the report "Veterinary Endoscopy Market - Growth, Trends, COVID-19 Impact, and Forecasts (2021 - 2026)" - https://www.reportlinker.com/p06030476/?utm_source=GNW The COVID-19 pandemic has a significant impact on the studied market. As per the data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), cats, dogs, and a few other types of animals are at potential risk of acquiring coronavirus. The virus was recently detected in minks in multiple farms in the Netherlands. Several studies are still underway to understand the connection between animals and the human transmission of SARS-CoV2-Virus. In April 2020, the CDC and the United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) National Veterinary Services Laboratories (NVSL) confirmed the cases of two pet cats that were infected by COVID-19. These were the first pets in the United States to test positive for the disease. Also, pet adoptions increased during the pandemic. Several animal shelters, non-profit rescue organizations, private breeders, and pet stores observed increased consumer demand. Foster Inc., a non-profit organization, claimed to register a more than 1,000% increase in foster applications during the lockdown period in New York, which was the epicenter of COVID-19 cases in the United States. Thus, in view of the aforementioned factors, the veterinary endoscopy market is expected to have a short-term negative impact, primarily due to the reduced veterinary visits in 2020.The growing burden of the gastrointestinal diseases such as diarrhea, coccidiosis, melena, indigestion, and bowel obstruction in animals is expected to boost the growth of the market over the forecast period.The rising pet adoption has also significantly impacted the increasing demand for endoscopy across the world. As per the American Pet Products Association’s 2019-2020 National Pet Owners Survey, an estimate of 1.6 million US households owns horses. Besides, dogs and cat ownership held the highest number in the country. As a result, pet healthcare expenditure has increased. The adoption rate of insurance policies related to animals has also contributed majorly to the veterinary endoscopy market.In addition, there is a huge technological advancement in endoscopic devices, which are helping veterinarians to diagnose various gastrointestinal diseases in animals. Thus, the rise in prevalence and technological advancement expected to propel the growth of the market over the forecast period.Key Market TrendsFlexible Endoscopes is Expected to Witness Significant Growth Over the Forecast PeriodThe Flexible endoscopes are mostly used for upper gastrointestinal (GI) endoscopy, colonoscopy, bronchoscopy, rhinoscopy, and tracheoscopy. These endoscopes can be manually rotated in various directions to allow for better access and maneuverability, which makes it easy to view the inside of the stomach and the bowel.Esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) and colonoscopies are performed primarily with a flexible endoscope as opposed to a rigid endoscope. The most common flexible endoscopic procedures performed both in specialty and general practices are upper and lower GI endoscopy, for direct examination and biopsy of selected areas of the GI tract. When the endoscopic image is displayed on a video monitor, the endoscopist can work more comfortably and share information during a procedure.The early diagnoses of gastrointestinal disorders in the companion animals are found to be beneficial, owing to the increasing number of animals with varied symptom patterns that require a biopsy of the GI tract in identifying the underlying condition. Additionally, a standard endoscope for upper and lower GI endoscopy used in dogs and cats should comprise at least 100cm of length and possess a distal tip with almost a 180-degree upward deflection, along with features such as water flushing, air insufflation, and suction capabilities.The flexible endoscopes require regular repairs to prevent damage. Companies such as STERIS have experience in Endo-i Veterinary Endoscope repairs, which is one of the significant investments for veterinary practices. Owing to the aforementioned factors, the studied market is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period.North America Holds the Major Share and is Expected to Dominate the Market Over the Forecast PeriodThe major factors driving the veterinary endoscopy market’s growth include an increase in adoption of companion animals, increasing prevalence of diseases such as zoonosis, availability of advanced veterinary healthcare infrastructure available in the region, and presence of key market players leading to developments in veterinary endoscopes. According to the United States Department of Agriculture’s National Agricultural Statistics Service, in the United States, there were around 94.4 million cattle and calves in 2020, as compared to 94.8 million cattle and calves in 2019. Also, the growing pet population along with increasing spending on pet care is fueling the market’s growth. For instance, according to the 2019-2020 National Pet Owners Survey conducted by the American Pet Products Association (APPA), around 85 million families or 67% of US households own a pet, an increase from 56% of US households in 1988. Also, during 2019-20, around 63.4 million US households owned a dog.In addition to that, as per the American Pet Products Association Inc., in 2020, it was estimated that around USD 99 billion was spent on pets in the United States, up from USD 95.7 billion in 2019. Hence, owing to the aforementioned factors, the studied market is expected to witness significant growth in North America over the forecast period.Competitive LandscapeThe market studied is moderately competitive and enjoys the presence of global players. The key players of the studied market comprise Biovision Veterinary Endoscopy LLC, Eickemeyer Veterinary Equipment, Olympus Corporation, Steris Plc, and Hill-Rom Holdings, Inc. With the increasing advancements in the technology for veterinary applications, many small to medium-sized entrepreneurs are making their entry into the studied market over the years. The major players are also involved in strategic alliances such as acquisitions and collaborations to secure the position in the global market.Reasons to Purchase this report:- The market estimate (ME) sheet in Excel format- 3 months of analyst supportRead the full report: https://www.reportlinker.com/p06030476/?utm_source=GNWAbout ReportlinkerReportLinker is an award-winning market research solution.

Results from an online survey indicate widespread unhappiness over the decision to hold a provincial election prior to mass vaccination in Newfoundland and Labrador, as well as overwhelming disapproval of Elections NL's handling of the entire process. Following the election's postponement due to last month's COVID-19 outbreak and a return to Alert Level 5, CBC's Vote Compass asked voters five questions to gauge their sentiments on the unprecedented pandemic election. Half of the 841 people surveyed said they strongly agreed the entire process should have waited until most people had been vaccinated. Another 18 per cent chose "somewhat agree," with the two categories combined representing 68 per cent of respondents. Liberal Leader Andrew Furey has stood by his decision to call the winter election, a move heavily criticized throughout the campaign, even prior to the outbreak, by opposition parties. That partisanship was reflected in the survey: when results are broken down along party lines, only 11 per cent of Liberal voters strongly agree the election should have waited, compared with 77 per cent of Progressive Conservatives and 63 per cent of NDP voters. Sixty-one per cent of all people surveyed thought adults over the age of 65 should have been vaccinated prior to heading to the polls. Updates to the province's widescale vaccine rollout have only come in the last week, as supply problems have dogged the entire country's ability to receive shipments since the start of 2021. Satisfaction with Elections NL, headed by chief electoral officer Bruce Chaulk, was low among survey respondents.(Paul Daly/The Canadian Press) Elections NL disapproval, integrity concerns The majority of people surveyed also weren't happy with how the entire election has proceeded — a process still underway, as Elections NL says it could be April before the results are known. Ninety-two per cent of PC voters, 80 per cent of NDP and 47 per cent of Liberals said in the survey they either disapproved or strongly disapproved of Elections NL's management thus far. Carrying out the election hit the rocks as COVID-19 cases surged in the week preceding the Feb. 13 election day, with Elections NL staff resigning en masse out of pandemic fears or because they were in self-isolation. Alongside that, confusion ensued as to whether chief electoral officer Bruce Chaulk or the chief medical officer of health had the authority to delay in-person voting. It was only after the confirmation that the contagious B117 variant was driving the outbreak and the entire province was moved into Alert Level 5 — on the evening before election day — that Chaulk announced the entire election would be held by mail-in ballot. The mailing process has since been dogged by extensions, adjustments and concerns, such as a lack of translation of ballots into Indigenous languages. The survey indicates mixed results for how people felt about the election's integrity. Fifty-six per cent of respondents overall felt either "not confident at all" or "not very confident" in its integrity. But breaking down respondents by party suggests distinct partisanship: 75 per cent of Liberals surveyed were either "very" or "somewhat" confident in the election, compared with 22 per cent of PCs and 30 per cent of NDP voters. That pattern leans into the three main party's leadership stances. While Furey has said the Liberals will accept the election's outcome as legitimate, PC Leader Ches Crosbie has said a legal challenge to results is "almost inevitable." NDP Leader Allison Coffin has voiced concerns about voters disenfranchised through the process. The election is on track for a record-low turnout of 51 per cent, if all mailed ballots are returned by the Mar. 12 deadline. Online polls don't have the same margin of error as traditional polls do, but Vox Pop Labs, the company that ran the survey, said a comparative sample of 841 people would have a margin of error of plus or minus 3.4 per cent, 19 times out of 20. The survey was conducted between Feb. 24 and March 2. Read more from CBC Newfoundland and Labrador

Les citoyens de Saint-Gédéon auront leur centre multifonctionnel dans l’Église Saint-Antoine-de-Padoue en 2023, a annoncé le maire Émile Hudon. Les travaux, évalués à 1,8 M$ débuteront à l’hiver 2022 pour la modernisation et l’agrandissement du bâtiment construit en 1897. La Grandmontoise pourra accueillir jusqu’à 300 personnes assises et permettra la tenue d’une foule d’activités, comme des festivals, du théâtre d’été, des cours, des formations, des réceptions et des réunions. Une nouvelle section d’une superficie de 2423 pi² sera annexée à la partie nord de l’édifice, pour y accueillir une cuisine, un bar, les toilettes, des accès indépendants ainsi que des espaces de rangement. Quant aux messes, elles continueront d’être données dans la sacristie, avec une capacité de 20 à 25 personnes. Une remise à neuf de la plomberie, du système de chauffage et de l’électricité, de même que l’intégration d’un système de climatisation et ventilation, est prévue. La municipalité entend également préserver et mettre en valeur l’architecture et le patrimoine de l’église, soit l’enveloppe extérieure, le clocher, la fresque murale, les vitraux et l’orgue. Bâtiment en santé Si la municipalité a pu aller de l’avant dans ce projet, c’est notamment en raison de la bonne santé du bâtiment. Un scénario de démolition aurait coûté au moins 600 000 $ à la municipalité et n’aurait pas été admissible aux subventions. « On a fait faire un bilan de l’église et celle-ci est en parfaite santé. On a fait vérifier par une firme spécialisée si elle contenait de l’amiante, mais il n’y en avait pas. On constate que la Fabrique a toujours bien entretenu ce bâtiment. La population était prête à la reprendre et on ne voulait pas qu’elle tombe dans l’oubli comme dans d’autres municipalités », explique le maire Émile Hudon, qui étudie le projet depuis 2017. Le conseil ira en règlement d’emprunt pour obtenir 725 000 $ afin de financer le projet et les intérêts. Des pourparlers sont en cours afin d’obtenir 900 000 $ du Conseil du patrimoine religieux du Québec. Une campagne de sociofinancement avec un objectif de 225 000 $ sera également lancée prochainement. Vocation touristique Selon le maire, le projet contribuera à alimenter la vocation touristique de la municipalité. « Nous n’avions pas encore de salle de cette envergure à Saint-Gédéon. Avec la vocation touristique de la municipalité, l’été, ce serait fantastique si on avait, par exemple, un théâtre d’été et des spectacles pour attirer les touristes et les inciter à rester plus longtemps », conclut-il.
