Forecast International Foresees Continuing Growth in Global Defense Market

FI’s Military Markets group highlights the factors behind the modest deceleration, while noting that the short- and medium-term military investment climate remains stout.

NEWTOWN, Conn. (PRWEB) January 22, 2020
As 2018 turned to 2019, growth in the global defense environment moderated slightly, according to a new white paper from Forecast International.
The Global Defense Spending Annual Snapshot produced by Forecast’s International’s Military Markets group highlights the factors behind the modest deceleration, while noting that the short- and medium-term military investment climate remains stout.
Buoyed by strong markets in the Asia-Pacific and Middle East, plus continuing investment growth among European NATO members seeking to recapitalize capabilities following decades of defense cuts, the broader global environment appears sturdy enough to withstand short-term economic hiccups.
“Despite a few dips in dollar-adjusted spending among large defense-spending nations, the overall market continues to reflect growth,” says senior analyst Dan Darling. “Whether in Europe, the U.S., Russia or the countries of East and South Asia, the trend shows nations putting more money into resourcing their militaries and investing in future technologies and/or asymmetric capabilities.”
Robust military modernization programs in China and Russia, plus competition in the spheres of cyber, electronic and information warfare, space, intelligence-gathering, and unmanned capabilities, will drive forward investment by the premier defense-spending nations. There is also a push for greater local industrial participation and capability in many traditional arms-importing nations such as Australia, India, Saudi Arabia and Turkey, which in turn calls for more internal expenditure.Meanwhile, improving force readiness and rectifying maintenance issues serve as drivers for the Pentagon as it oversees the world’s largest defense budget.
The latest white paper is an amalgamation of Forecast International’s International Military Markets regional analyses library, providing a glimpse at some of the analysis and rationales behind its spending projections.

Press Release – updated: Jan 14, 2020 19:00 EST

Prevalence of diseases such as diabetes, high cholesterol level, blood pressure along with high consumption of junk food has influenced product consumption lately. However, as kombucha contains some amount of alcohol, regulatory bodies including the U.S FDA have directed customers to take precautionary measures while using it for the first time.
Incidentally, consumers have also narrated numerous side effects like stomach upset, toxic reaction, metabolic acidosis and allergic reactions following product consumption, incidents that may restrain the growth of the kombucha industry.
The flavored segment of the kombucha market is anticipated to exceed USD 1.5 billion valuations by 2025. The original taste of kombucha, being effervescent, slightly sweet and tart, has attracted added consumer preference to flavored products. Speculating increasing demand, manufacturers have started to bring new flavors of kombucha to the table.
For instance, in 2019, Health-Ade Kombucha, an American manufacturer announced the launch of six new flavored products including cherry, tropical punch, grapefruit, passion fruit-tangerine, peach-mango and strawberry-lemonade. Along with offering good taste, these products provide added health benefits owing to key characteristics like organic nature, low sugar content and being gluten-free and vegan.
Speaking on the regional landscape, the North American kombucha market is expected to witness prominent growth at a 15.5% CAGR rate during the forecast period. Rising health awareness among Latin American countries including Argentina and Brazil is projected to offer lucrative opportunities for industry expansion.
Regular consumption of kombucha by professional athletics and dancers owes to its numerous benefits in helping with arthritis pains, common aches, and muscle strains, fueling product demand. Moreover, to address health issues like obesity, many health and fitness clubs are being developed in North America.

Growth of Cheese Powder Market Forecast at 7%+ CAGR Up to 2025: Global Market Insights, Inc.

Cheese powder market value is anticipated to cross USD $775 million by 2025, on account of the increasing consumption of flavored snacks, along with new product launches in the flavor industry.
Press Release – updated: Jan 10, 2020 01:00 EST

SELBYVILLE, Del., January 10, 2020 (Newswire.com) – The global cheese powder market’s research studies types of products (Cheddar, Blends, Mozzarella, Swiss, Blue, Asiago, Parmesan, Gouda, Feta, Romano), their applications (flavor industry, savory snacks, dips/dressings/dry mix/sauces, biscuits and other baked products, ready-to-eat, confectionery, imitation and processed cheese, cream and pet and baby food), regional outlook, price trends, growth potential, competitive market share and provides forecasts for 2019-2025. Global Market Insights, Inc. forecasts more than a 7% CAGR for the worldwide cheese powder industry up to 2025.
The changing trend towards “away-from-home snacking food,” on the grounds of a high sedentary lifestyle, will foster growth in the global market for cheese powder over the forecast period. These binging snacks include flavored snacks or cheese dips and drippings, amidst which the Gen Z population is more likely to opt for the cheese-based snacks.
Request a sample of this research report at https://www.gminsights.com/request-sample/detail/1332
A major reason for the accelerating cheese powder business dynamics during 2019-2025 is the deployment of umpteen dairy flavors and dressings across the bakeries and snack sectors. This has established new avenues for industry players such as Aarkey Food Products, Kerry Inc., ADM, and others. In this regard, companies active in the cheese powder industry are putting efforts to build up a strong portfolio by developing and introducing new products across the market.
The worldwide cheese powder industry is segmented into multiple cheese types, seeing high demands for exotic cheese flavors over the years. The predominance of Parmesan and Gouda cheese has added a spark to the exotic cheese demand, promoting the cheese powder market share.
Parmesan, Blue and Swiss cheese products have an extremely granular texture and can impart a stronger cheese flavor in baking dough. The benefits of texture and flavor should support a stronger growth for these product segments.
The low-fat and high-fat variants of cheese powder market products will act as a major push-pull factor for overall growth. Enabling suppliers to attract the health-conscious demo graph, these help them in gaining a wider and bigger consumer base.

Foreclosure Forecast for 2020

With the calendar turning to 2020, there’s no better time to learn more about the foreclosure market with an eye toward understanding what it may bring over the next 12 months
Press Release – updated: Dec 6, 2019 10:00 EST

MIAMI, December 6, 2019 (Newswire.com) – The following is an analysis of the 2019 foreclosure market and a 2020 forecast from BankForeclosuresSale.com​.
​​While there is no way of predicting the future, especially when it comes to the real estate market, past trends provide an inside look at what to expect in the near term.
According to ATTOM Data Solutions, Q3 2019 foreclosure activity decreased 19% from 2018. This marks the lowest level since Q2 2005.
The company noted a total of 143,105 U.S. properties with foreclosure filings in the third quarter. 
Todd Teta, CPO at ATTOM Data Solutions, added the following in the company’s U.S. Foreclosure Market Report:
“Foreclosure activity continues to decline across the country, which is a good sign that the housing market and the broader economy remain strong – and that the lending excesses that helped bring down the economy during the Great Recession remain a memory.”
There is no denying the impact of these numbers on the housing market and economy as a whole, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t another side of the story.
Some states have experienced an increase in foreclosure rates in 2019, thus, giving them cause for concern as the calendar flips to the new year. 
These States Saw an Increase 
Even with foreclosure rates dropping as a whole, some states were not as lucky. For example, these states saw an increase in the third quarter of 2019:
Montana: 33%
Georgia: 32%
Washington: 16%
Louisiana: 15%
Michigan: 12%
Furthermore, many large metropolitan statistical areas throughout the country experienced foreclosure rate growth during the third quarter:
Atlanta, GA: 37%
Columbus, OH: 27%
San Antonio, TX: 24%
Portland, OR: 22%
Tucson, AZ: 21%
What Will 2020 Bring?
If 2019 is any indication, the first quarter of 2020 will show another decrease in the nation’s foreclosure rate. 
However, much the same as in 2019, some states and cities will suffer more than others.
According to Simon Campbell of BankForeclosuresSale.com – an online service that helps consumers find foreclosed homes for up to 60 percent below market value – there will be opportunities across the country to invest in foreclosures.
“Even when foreclosure rates dip – which is a good thing on many fronts – there are still opportunities for those interested in investing. In 2020, there will remain cities and states that have more available properties than others. For example, it makes sense to believe that New Jersey, Illinois, and Florida will continue to have some of the highest foreclosure rates in the country.”
Just the same, some cities never seem to escape a foreclosure rate increase, and that trend should remain in the new year.
“Last year, Atlantic City, New Jersey, and Rockford, Illinois, had some of the highest foreclosure rates in the country,” Campbell added. “We don’t yet know how these areas will perform in 2020, but I’d guess that you’ll see these three cities in a similar position during Q1 and possibly beyond.”
Anyone interested in bank-owned properties can find great foreclosure listings at bankforeclosuressale.com.
