Sandwich and Sub Store Franchises in the US Industry Market Research Report from IBISWorld Has Been Updated


New York, NY (PRWEB) February 11, 2015

The Sandwich and Sub Store Franchises industry has experienced consistent growth in line with the economic recovery. Industry revenue grew in 2011 as consumer confidence and spending rebounded from the recession, in part due to Subway’s success with the Five Dollar Footlong promotion. Franchisees managed to maintain that momentum during the following years by developing new menu options that capitalize on society’s increasing awareness of the health risks associated with a high-fat diet. As a result, the industry has been able to thrive, despite rapidly evolving consumer preferences for fast food, which have led to the stagnation and decline of other quick-service restaurants. During the five years to 2015, IBISWorld expects industry revenue to grow, including an increase this year.

Sandwich and sub store franchises exist within the quick-service restaurant sector, which has traditionally been dominated by fast-food giants, such as McDonald’s and Burger King. Nevertheless, these restaurants have been rocked in recent years by the rapidly evolving tastes of a new generation of consumers. According to IBISWorld Industry Analyst Will McKitterick, “millennials have turned increasingly to fast-casual restaurants to satisfy their hunger when dining out.” This means companies like Chipotle and Shake Shack have begun to usurp market share from some of the fast-food segment’s most important players, such as McDonald’s. Unlike other fast-food giants, most sandwich and sub store franchises have been able to thrive within this highly competitive environment by catering to consumers’ health and wellness concerns. For example, Subway is well known for its low-calorie menu options, which it spent a number of years developing. By advertising the healthful nature of their products, many sandwich franchises avoided the declines that the rest of the quick-service segment experienced during the period.

“In the coming years, industry operators will continue to face stiff external competition from members of the fast-casual food segment,” says McKitterick. In turn, many sandwich franchises will continue to expand their menu options to include a wider variety of healthy food options. For example, in 2010, Subway added breakfast items to their menu, and in 2011, it introduced Subway Cafes, which offer coffee, paninis, muffins and other pastries. Over the five years to 2020, these trends are expected to contribute to revenue growth.

Rising Average Age of Vehicles Drives the Global Market for Automotive Aftermarket Brake Friction Parts, According to a New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.

San Jose, California (PRWEB) January 30, 2015

Follow us on LinkedIn – The average life of vehicles on the road stands at a record high of 10 to 11 years. Key factors driving vehicle retention include engineering innovation, increase in useful life of vehicles, and changes in consumer wealth structure and financial choices. In the United States, consumer consumption, spending and income continue to remain flat. Greater than expected sluggishness in the labor market and lack of meaningful growth in wages and income are creating changes in consumer wealth and spending patterns. Recovery in asset prices and household wealth to pre-recession levels is seen as hugely unlikely. Another key reason for the relatively anemic recovery of consumer spending in the country is the wealth inequality which has been made even more disproportionate by the 2007-2009 economic recession. The recession punctured the over 8 trillion dollar overvalued housing bubble and crippled households across the country. The cumulative erosion in household wealth averaged to over US$ 15 trillion in the year 2010. In Europe, overindebted households represent a key bottleneck hindering consumer spending. With one in every 9 households in Europe unable to meet financial commitments including recurring expenses, spending on durable goods remains subdued. Against this backdrop, cars are being retained for longer.

The longer replacement cycle and the increase in the number of miles traveled per vehicle are creating opportunities in the aftermarket. Vehicle maintenance and component replacements are therefore receiving a boost. As the most critical safety system, brakes represent the most often replaced auto part. High replacement frequency of worn out brake components including rotors, brake pads, calipers and parts is spurring growth in the market. Stringent safety norms, growing consumer emphasis on personal safety, and focus on preventive maintenance, represent other major factors driving growth in the market. Healthy gains in automotive production in developing countries is also forecast to spur growth in the long-run, since more number of vehicles manufactured creates a parallel secondary market for auto parts including brake friction parts.

As stated by the new market research report on Automotive Aftermarket Brake Friction Parts, Europe represents the largest market worldwide. Asia-Pacific is forecast to emerge as the fastest growing market with a CAGR of 6.8% over the analysis period. Growth in the region is led by the surge in car ownership rates, and frequent wear and tear of the braking system due to heavy commuter traffic in crowded cities in densely populated countries such as India and China.    

Major players in the market include ABS Friction Inc., Advics Co. Ltd., Akebono Brake Industry Co. Ltd., Continental AG, Delphi Automotive PLC, Dongying Xinyi Automobile Fitting Co., Ltd., Federal-Mogul Corporation, Fras Le, Japan Brake Industrial Co. Ltd., Meritor Inc., Nan Hoang Traffic Instrument Co., Ltd., Nisshinbo Holdings Inc., Nisshinbo Brake Inc., TMD Friction Holding GmbH, Robert Bosch GmbH, and TRW Automotive, among others.

The research report titled “Automotive Aftermarket Brake Friction Parts: A Global Strategic Business Report” announced by Global Industry Analysts Inc., provides a comprehensive review of trends, growth drivers, restraints, market share, size and demand projections and forecasts. Major geographic regions covered include the US, Canada, Japan, Europe (France, Germany, Italy, UK, Spain, Russia, and Rest of Europe), Asia-Pacific (Australia, China, India, South Korea and Rest of Asia-Pacific), Latin America (Brazil, Mexico and Rest of Latin America) and Rest of World. Key segments analyzed in the report include Brake Pads and Brake Shoes. The report also offers coverage on mergers, acquisitions, product launches and other strategic industry activities of major global and regional players.

Interior Design Services Procurement Category Market Research Report from IBISWorld has Been Updated


Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) January 22, 2015

Interior design services have a buyer power score of 3.3 out of 5, indicating market conditions that are somewhat favorable for buyers. Low market share concentration, which has fueled competition among suppliers, combined with moderate product specialization and low supply chain risk has worked in favor of buyers. “With a wide selection of suppliers available, no vendor accounts for a substantial portion of market share, and buyers can pit suppliers against one another to obtain the best pricing,” says IBISWorld procurement analyst Kiera Outlaw. “Moreover, the large pool of available suppliers keeps product specialization at a moderate level, which also benefits buyers.” Finally, low supply chain risk ensures that buyers will not experience a shortage in supply or disrupted services.

Unfortunately for buyers, interior design service prices have been rising during the past three years. Strong price growth during the period largely resulted from increasing demand as the economy returned to growth and facilitated a surge in construction activity. “With the economy on the mend, corporate profit rose and the number of businesses increased, all of which contributed to strong demand for interior design services,” adds Outlaw. “In light of stronger demand, suppliers increased their prices, which has hurt buyer power.” Furthermore, the low availability of substitute services also undermines buyer power. Buyers can develop an in-house design team, but those employees can lack crucial knowledge of design services, such as adhering to building codes and regulations.

In spite of rising prices, price volatility has been low and is expected to remain low during the next three-year period. Low price volatility allows buyers to confidently secure their interior design services without fear of prices rising unexpectedly. However, prices are forecast to rise further in the next three years, and buyers are encouraged to secure their interior design services now rather than later.

Rising Popularity of Beach Culture and Water Sports Drives the Global Swimwear and Beachwear Market, According to a New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.

San Jose, California (PRWEB) November 17, 2014

Follow us on LinkedIn – The global swimwear and beachwear market is witnessing steady growth, driven by growing health consciousness, rising popularity of beach culture and water sports, increasing emphasis on active and healthy lifestyles, and continued innovations in swimsuit design and technology. Other factors driving demand in the market include growth of the beauty and spa industry, increasing life expectancy and the consequent increase in interest among the aged towards staying fit. Aging-but-active population in the US, Japan, and Europe as well as in emerging markets of Asia and Latin America, presents attractive opportunities for swimwear manufacturers.

Regional boundaries for fashion are fast blurring with increasing globalization where design trends have become more global than ever. Over the years, fashion, which was more concentrated on the element of style and innovation, is gradually changing its definition to the ‘comfort’ aspect. Increasing incorporation of the comfort element is attracting more consumers to swimwear. Women continue to be the larger buyer group in the global swimwear and beachwear market. They also constitute the highest spenders on expensive swimwear, while men continue to be price sensitive. The trend however, appears to be changing gradually, with men also beginning to show increased interest towards purchasing expensive swim and beachwear as the emphasis on aesthetics increases. Children’s swimwear category, on the other hand, represents the fastest growing segment within the global swimwear and beachwear market. High end designers, who earlier emphasized more on the women’s segment, have now realized the potential of this exceptionally growing market segment, and are designing swimwear for this category.

As stated by the new market research report on Swimwear and Beachwear, Brazil constitutes the largest market in terms of unit sales and the United States in terms of value sales. Asia-Pacific, driven largely by China, represents the market with the highest potential for future growth. China represents the fastest growing market for swimwear and beachwear, both in terms of value and volume. Growing acceptance of swimwear as fashion attire, increasing consumer disposable income, and growing influence of western culture, are some of the major factors spurring growth in the country.

Major players covered in the report include American Apparel Inc., Arena Italia S.p.A, Diana Sport, Wacoal Eveden Ltd., La Perla Group, NoZONE Clothing Limited, O’Neill Inc., PARAH S.p.A, Pentland Group Plc., Speedo International Ltd., Perry Ellis International Inc., Jantzen Apparel LLC, Quiksilver Inc., Seafolly, Seaspray Swimwear, Tefron Ltd., Swimwear Anywhere, Inc., TYR Sport Inc., and PVH Corp.

Children’s Fitness Center Franchises in the US Industry Market Research Report from IBISWorld Has Been Updated


(PRWEB) October 18, 2014

The Children’s Fitness Center Franchises industry has fared well over the past five years, as it recovered from the economic downturn. Rising per capita disposable income as well as growing awareness of the benefits from exercising regularly, especially in response to a rising childhood obesity rate, have driven demand over the period. However, steady external competition from afterschool programs, child athletic programs and child daycare programs has offset further growth in the industry.

IBISWorld Economic Analyst Sally Lerman says in the updated report, “programs such as Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move campaign and the National Football League’s Fuel Up to Play 60 program have driven awareness of the negative effects associated with childhood obesity.” Such awareness has resulted in parents being more active in finding fitness programs for their children, which has resulted in revenue growth for the industry. Because of this IBISWorld estimates that industry revenue will grow in 2014. Efforts to fight childhood obesity are expected to continue throughout the five years to 2019, acting as a key factor in this industry’s future growth. “During the past five years, households have increased discretionary expenditures, which includes children’s fitness classes,” Lerman says. Furthermore, with declining national unemployment, parents looked toward fitness alternatives for their children as fewer parents were at home to take care of their children and make sure they stay active. In response to the increase in demand, many franchises have expanded; although, prices have been kept low to compete with less expensive afterschool programs. As a result, the number of franchise units is expected to increase in the five years to 2014.

Over the next five years, rising per capita disposable income and lower unemployment levels will continue to drive up demand for franchises. Furthermore, more variety in classes and more classes per age group will further aid Children’s Fitness Center Franchises industry growth as establishments are forecast to increase over the next five years.

Precor®, a globally recognized fitness brand, is an example of a growing sector of non-traditional MSPs partnering with Exinda. “Precor has supplied over 28,000 networked exercise machines with state-of-the-art Preva software to more than 1,700 gyms worldwide,” said Will Ostrander, Senior Product Manager – Networked Fitness at Precor. “We chose to partner with Exinda to offer our operators a solution that optimizes the exerciser experience and is easy for us to deploy and manage. Our partnership with Exinda has enabled us to transform the exerciser experience and give fitness center operators a competitive advantage.”

The managed services market overall has grown tremendously in recent years, and Research and Markets expects it to reach $ 250 billion by 2018, at a CAGR of more than 12 percent. Yet with that growth, significant challenges are emerging as more MSPs enter the marketplace: Price and margin erosion, customer churn and rising operational costs.

Exinda’s solution for MSPs was architected to help these businesses be more competitive, add new sources of revenue, reduce churn and expand customer lifetime value. The solution enables MSPs to:


Quickly add new, differentiated services: MSP partners can augment existing remote infrastructure services with visibility, control and acceleration of client applications at user, group and site level. By providing 24×7 application performance monitoring and alerting, MSPs can differentiate themselves from competitors who typically offer basic availability monitoring only.

Improve end customer experience and satisfaction: Exinda’s intuitive monitoring, analytics and reporting enable MSPs to improve end-to-end quality of experience for clients and deliver new levels of service transparency. MSPs can easily show clients how network resources are being used across all applications, users, devices and locations.

Easily acquire, deploy and scale: Exinda’s flexible financing options, single-platform solution, and intuitive NOC management console make it easy for MSP partners to develop and launch new services, accelerating time to profitability for the business practice.

“We have seen tremendous success by providing clear business value to our MSP partners,” said Kevin Kirksey, General Manager of the MSP Business Unit at Exinda. “As this market evolves and MSPs continue to grapple with the challenges and opportunities presented by increasing competition and rising complexity in end customer networks, Exinda can help them continuously evolve and differentiate their IT service offerings.”

In addition to helping MSPs be more profitable, the Exinda solution also enables MSPs to provide end value added services to end customers. Exinda’s monitoring and management capabilities bring new levels of application reliability and user experience quality for end customers including:

Better user experience: Enhancing quality of experience for business applications like voice, video and collaboration

WAN performance improvement: Eliminating the perception of performance problems by removing unwanted traffic and accelerating strategic business applications

WAN cost containment: Control end customer WAN costs by dynamically allocating bandwidth to avoid costly burst rates charged by ISPs

Faster application roll out: Helping end customers deploy new applications without adding unnecessary, costly infrastructure

ISP service transparency: Keeping ISPs accountable by ensuring they are delivering the bandwidth levels they commit to
