m2m, 3d printing and augmented reality: promising hi-tech sectors with room to grow
If the film \"graduate\" was filmed today, a young Benjamin would most likely receive his advice. Braddock: \"I want to say three words to you: M2M, 3D printing, and augmented reality. There is a bright future in these areas. Think about it. Will you think about it? \"These disruptive technologies have attracted considerable attention recently, but they are still in the early stages of development, there is the potential to grow into a major industry like plastic at the time of the graduates release 46 years ago or the Internet in the 1990 s. Each of these technologies can be used by private and companies in many industries, one of the many reasons why their potential market size is estimated to be billions or even higher. 3D printing: for example, it may be $8 for 3D printing. 4 billion-in- According to Lux Research, the revenue market in 2025 grew from $0. 777 billion in 2012 to most applications in the automotive, medical and aerospace industries. In the long run, it may reshape the manufacturing ecosystem. In the short term, it will have the greatest impact on manufacturing products that are made in small batches, require high customization and are more costly Tolerance, Lux reports. The 3D printer uses liquid or powder materials and other chemicals to print the product by repeatedly depositing thin layers of material bonded together layer by layer. It has applications in aerospace, automotive, medical and consumer products and many other industries. The technology first appeared in 1988, but in the past year or so, the 3D system has only entered the mainstream (NYSE:DDD)and Stratasys (NASDAQ:SSYS) Began selling their products to consumers, as both stocks have attracted considerable attention from the media and investors. On February, The ExOne IPO further promoted the ExOne IPOEnthusiasm (NASDAQ:XONE) In February, it rose 47% on the first day of trading. In media reports, CEO Kent Rockwell explained that the difference between ExOne and its competitors is that its product uses a wider range of materials to print the product. These materials provide production capacity for ExOne printers Grade objects and castings of stainless steel, bronze, glass, silica sand and ceramics. ExOne focuses primarily on printers from large industrial companies with huge capital spending budgets such as aerospace, automotive, heavy equipment and liquid and gas transfer. The company produces four different types of 3D printers at prices ranging from about $100,000 to $1. One piece 4 million It also sells supplies and related products needed for 3D printing, as well as services, training and technical support. In a recent report on the 3D system, J. P. Morgan analyst Paul Coster wrote that 3D Systems, the group\'s leader, sold about 1,000 professional systems in 2011. Coster quoted Wohlers 2011 as reporting that 3D systems account for more than 15% of the industry -- Extensive unit sales in 2010. He predicts that the industry will grow at a compound annual growth rate of 20% (CAGR) By 2015, the compound growth rate of 15% fell to 2015 He expects the 3D system to follow ( Defined to a large extent)the market. Coster, however, thinks the current share price of $45 is a bit high because it represents a multiple of $41. He estimated earnings per share to be three times that of $2013. Or what he calls a \"peak multiple \". \"So he estimates the stock will end at 2013 in a low of $38. 50. Organza Holdings sthat heralds organza Holdings(ONVO), a three- While 3D bio-printing technology is still losing money, the company focuses on 3D bio-printing technology. During the three-month period ended March 31, 2013, the company lost $16 million in sales of $215,000. Over the past six months, the stock has climbed 100% from $2. 13 to $4. 41. M2M: Machine-To- Michael warkley, a technical analyst, described the machine --to-Machine (M2M) The market, or the \"internet of things\", serves as a design for incorporating network connectivity into various machines, devices, and assets, as well as subsequent use and monetization of data collected from these assets. To put it more simply, M2M involves the creation of communication networks using wireless technology and applications in construction, power grids, homes, manufacturing, medical markets, and many other areas. Woolley wrote many practical ways that M2M technology can improve efficiency. In buildings, for example, M2M can integrate safety, maintenance, electrical and water systems for better management. In the home, M2M technology allows consumers to effectively control and optimize the use of electrical, electrical and water systems. In healthcare, the technology can monitor whether patients are wearing implantable monitoring devices, no matter where they are. M2M: it is difficult to understand that the M2M market is diverse, decentralized and relatively immature, as the goal of the Internet of Things is a variety of machines and devices in various markets, according to emarley. Therefore, it is difficult for investors to understand this. In addition, analyst forecasts for economic growth have also declined. However, Canaccord reported that over time, industry trends \"should release strong M2M growth in the coming years, thus accelerating the growth of connected devices in the second half of the decade \". Or, let\'s say you have a factory with many different production machines running around the clock. When any mechanical system starts to fail or needs maintenance, m2M technology can not only provide service notification to service technicians, but also provide the exact nature and location of the problem. Potassium bicarbonate thinks some M2M- Focused companies offer attractive long term for investors Long-term investment opportunities such as Sierra Wireless (NASDAQ:SWIR), Telit (TCM.

In short, this is the only thing in the industry-in-one, plug-and- Play the cellular gateway designed to greatly simplify the M2M deployment. This is a pure speculative game with great risks and potential wealth. The augmented reality industry is another relatively new area, which is receiving considerable attention. The Juniper study estimates augmented reality (AR) Apps typically need to scan images with their smartphones to access multimedia content, generating nearly $0. 3 billion in revenue in 2013, with paid downloads accounting for the majority of their revenue. This is an increase from $82 million in 2012. Augmented reality has been greatly promoted by Google. NASDAQ:GOOG) The new project Glass, announced in 2010, will allow users to wear smart glasses, basically a smartphone worn like glasses, activating prompts through voice commands. To see how the device is running, simply search for \"Google glass\" on youtube \". com. Other companies with AR technology include Qualcomm. (NASDAQ:QCOM)and Nokia Corp. (NYSE:NOK) At present, smaller AR projects have been launched in the market. Even big companies recognize the great potential of AR. Apple, Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) Patent for video phone headset and Microsoft(NASDAQ:MSFT) The design of augmented reality lenses is being explored for facial recognition applications by police and military agencies. Developers are developing potential applications for sporting events, concerts, games, gambling, and educational and medical programs. One of the rapid rise in augmented reality software is the unlimited augmented reality company. (Infinity AR)(ALSO) The company is known for its platform to connect Google\'s Android glasses to an iPad or iPhone, but the company is more than that. It recently released a video showing some of the extraordinary applications that the company offers, including advanced facial, emotional, and image recognition using Infinity AR\'s augmented reality digital eye mask. More than 1 person watched the video. There were 4 million times in the first week alone. With the restructuring of the management team, including the CEO of the helm, enong Landenberg, and morbury Hogg, one of the directors, the transaction price was less than 50 cents. It is considered to be a speculative stock with great risk and great potential for return. It is important for investors to understand disruptive technologies. Therefore, it is important to understand augmented reality before Google Glass is released or as Mr. Braddock suggested, \"think about it. Will you think about it? \"Disclosure: I do not have a position in any of the stocks mentioned, nor do I have a plan to start any position in the next 72 hours.
