The major segments in the polysulfide construction sealant market are application and end-use industry.

In terms of application, the market can be segmented into joint sealants, glazing sealants, and others. Joint sealants are expected to hold a major share of the market due to their wide use in various construction applications such as building and infrastructure projects.

In terms of end-use industry, the market can be segmented into residential, non-residential, and infrastructure. Residential and non-residential are expected to hold a major share of the market due to the increasing construction activities in these sectors. Infrastructure is also expected to grow at a significant rate due to the increasing number of infrastructure projects worldwide.

It is worth noting that this is a general market overview and the performance of the segments may vary depending on the region and the specific product used. Additionally, the market is subject to change due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on the construction industry.

The polysulfide construction sealant market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America, and Middle East & Africa.

Asia Pacific is expected to dominate the market due to the growing construction industry in the region. The increasing number of infrastructure projects, such as airports, highways, and bridges, in countries such as China, India, and Japan, is driving the market in the region. The growing population in the region, coupled with increasing urbanization, is also expected to boost the market.

North America and Europe are also expected to hold significant shares of the market due to the presence of well-established construction industries in the regions. The market in these regions is driven by the increasing number of renovation and retrofit activities in the residential and non-residential sectors.

It is worth noting that this is a general market overview, and the dominance of a region may vary depending on the specific product used. Additionally, the market is subject to change due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on the construction industry.

The major driving factors for the polysulfide construction sealant market include:

  1. Increasing construction activities: The growing population and urbanization are leading to an increase in the number of construction projects, such as buildings, bridges, and infrastructure, which is driving the demand for polysulfide construction sealants.
  2. High performance and durability: Polysulfide construction sealants are known for their excellent resistance to weathering, chemicals, and temperature changes, which makes them a popular choice for sealing joints and gaps in construction projects.
  3. Government regulations and initiatives: Government regulations and initiatives to promote energy efficiency and reduce carbon emissions in the construction industry are driving the demand for polysulfide construction sealants that have low environmental impact.
  4. Technological advancements: The development of new polysulfide compounds and application methods, such as spray and injection systems, has improved the performance and efficiency of polysulfide construction sealants.
  5. Growing demand for sustainable products: The increasing awareness of the environmental impact of construction materials is driving the demand for polysulfide construction sealants that are made from renewable raw materials and have low emissions.

The major risks for the polysulfide construction sealant market include:

  1. Volatility in raw material prices: The prices of raw materials used to make polysulfide construction sealants, such as rubber, plastic, and chemicals, can be volatile, which can lead to fluctuations in the price of the final product, making it less attractive to customers.
  2. Stringent regulations: Polysulfide construction sealants are subject to strict regulations regarding their emissions, which can make it difficult for companies to comply with these regulations and increase the cost of production.
  3. Substitution by alternative materials: Polysulfide construction sealants face competition from alternative materials, such as silicone and polyurethane sealants, which may be more cost-effective or have better performance characteristics.
  4. Economic downturns: Economic downturns can lead to a decline in construction activities, which can negatively impact the demand for polysulfide construction sealants.
  5. Limited awareness and lack of knowledge about the product: Some customers may not be aware of the benefits of polysulfide construction sealants, or may not have enough knowledge about the product, which can limit the growth of the market.

India gets its 1st GPS based train tracking on Google Maps
September 25th, 2015 by Brad Micklin

New Delhi,September 25: RailYatri.in, a technology start-up focused on train travellers, has launched country’s 1st GPS train tracking platform, ‘RailRadar GPS’, to track and display the real time movement of nation-wide trains on a Google map. With this release, the award-winning train travel app has taken the 1st concrete step towards the longstanding train tracking challenge using smart location technology implementation like never before. RailYatri’s ‘RailRadar GPS’ enables users to track running trains on a Google map along with its on-time/delay status.

This is the 1st ever deployment of a true crowd-sourced location tracking. The previous attempts by the government to install GPS on trains as part of the SIMRAN project failed due to the high project costs. Real time train tracking continued to be a challenge despite crores spent on the pilot project which was scrapped after being launched on about 40 premium trains.

‘RailRadar GPS’ uses location generated by a passenger’s smartphone, the solution requires zero capital expenditure in terms of GPS hardware costs. ‘RailRadar GPS’ determines the train location by analysing the pattern of locations transmitted by the smartphone travellers sitting on the train, similar to how Google Maps determines the traffic on the road when you are using any road transport like a car or a bus,

India gets its 1st GPS based train tracking on Google Maps-2

With hundreds of smartphones on each train nowadays, RailYatri’s RailRadar GPS has been designed to scale up to track every train in the country on a 24×7 basis, though for now the company  has published around 100+ trains in the pilot phase.

 

Manish Rathi, CEO and co-founder, RailYatri.in adds, “Train location is one of the most sought after information by train travellers and the smartphone technology now allows us to answer that with an accuracy and cost not possible a few years back. The crowd sourced model uses mathematical modelling to confirm the train and its location. The technology reduces human errors, while available 24×7 under all weather conditions, irrespective of fog or visibility issues. All it requires is 1 smartphone RailYatri traveler on each train.”

To use RailRadar GPS, travelers simply have to visit www.railyatri.in and track the train on the map.

RailRadar GPS shows trains running tracking data neatly displayed on a Google Map. The map also indicates the on-current time status of trains. Trains running on time have Green indicators, while those running late are marked red. On the top right, there’s a display that shows the number of trains tracked at that point of time, and percentage of trains that are on schedule and delayed.Users can click the train name from the map or search by train number and RailRadar GPS shows the exact location of the train in terms of latitude and longitude.
