New NanoMarkets Report Projects Smart Windows Market to Exceed $750 million by 2019

According to a new study by the industry analyst firm NanoMarkets - "Smart Windows Markets: 2014-2021" -- revenues from smart windows will reach $766 million by 2019 and then ramp up to $1.1 billion by 2021.

Glen Allen, Virginia (April 8, 2014) -- According to a new study by the industry analyst firm NanoMarkets - "Smart Windows Markets: 2014-2021" -- revenues from smart windows will reach $766 million by 2019 and then ramp up to $1.1 billion by 2021. In addition, the related - but more mature - market for smart automotive mirrors will reach $1.4 billion in 2019.

About the report:

NanoMarkets has been providing coverage of the smart windows market for six years and this report brings together the latest data from NanoMarkets' ongoing forecasts in this sector. The report provides eight-year market forecasts in volume (square meters) and value ($ million) terms for electrochromic, photochromic, thermochromic, SPD and PDLC windows, along with projections for the smart auto mirror sector.

In these forecasts, breakouts are provided for automotive (cars and trucks), public transport, aerospace, residential construction and commercial construction for each of the key smart windows technologies. We also assess the latest product market strategies of the key suppliers of smart windows. Some of the companies discussed in this report include: 3M, Asahi Glass, BASF, Chromogenics, DuPont, Eastman Chemical/Solutia, GE, Gentex, Guardian Industries, Hitachi, NSG, Pleotint, PPG, Research Frontiers, Sage, Saint-Gobain, Scienstry, Southwall, Solvay, Suntek, SWITCH Materials, Toray, US e-Chromics, and View.

Findings from the report:

The smart windows sector will be dominated by active technologies over the next decade despite their higher cost. This is because of the ability of smart windows technologies to provide instantaneous response to user needs as natural light conditions change. Although passive smart windows technologies will continue to expand throughout the forecasting period covered by the report, NanoMarkets expects that they will never be much more than a niche.

The report also claims that SPD and electrochromic smart windows will find a growing role in the automotive sector. Although primarily found in luxury cars today, NanoMarkets expects these high-tech windows to be much more widely used in the coming decade. They are no longer just a "cool" design feature but can lead to a significant lowering of fuel costs through the reduction in the use of air conditioning. Consequently, NanoMarkets believes that sales of smart windows to the car, truck and public transport sectors will leap from around $23 million today to $185 million by 2019.

Meanwhile, the sales of smart windows for use in buildings will also leap primarily because of regulations in Europe and the US requiring the buildings to be zero net energy compliant towards. NanoMarkets believes that smart windows will turn out to be a critical enabling technology for zero net energy buildings not just because of their ability to reduce cooling bills but also they can be hybridized with photovoltaics layers which will enable them to generate energy, not just conserve it. NanoMarkets believes that as a result smart windows for residential construction will reach $117 million by 2019 and sales to commercial construction were $460 million by 2019.

Electrochromic smart windows (including glass and film) will reach $622 million by 2019 making electrochromics the largest segment of the entire smart windows business. NanoMarkets believes this may have much to do with the fact that this sector can boast significant investment by influential firms such as Corning, GE and Saint-Gobain, and Seagate. Alternatives to the electrochromic materials platform do not have the same level of clout behind them.

Eposeidon's Madbite Division Introduces New Knotted Vi-Blade Lures

Eposeidon once again adds innovation to an angler's fishing tackle arsenal with the Madbite™ M42 Knotted Vi-Blade Erratic Fluttering Action Metal Blade Bait.

Hempstead, NY, USA (April 8, 2014) -- "There's a whole lotta shakin' goin' on" with Eposeidon's ( new Madbite Knotted Vi-Blade lure.

Madbite's revolutionary Madbite M42 Knotted Vi-Blade Erratic Fluttering Action Metal Blade Bait sinks fast with an erratic fluttering action and produces hard pulsating vibrations when pulled through the water. This metal blade bait features 2 "knots" on each side of the bait that cause even more water disturbance when in motion.

"The side-bulges push a lot of water and create intense pressure waves, vortices, and eddy currents that are picked up by the lateral lines of hunting fish. Combined with the vibrating action on retrieve, it's a perfect lure for many conditions. It is a great tool for finding and catching fish when fishing deeper water," says bass-pro Kyle Brewer.

Madbite's Knotted Vi-Blade bait has multiple location options for tying on the line. The closer the knot is tied to the head -- the greater the wobble. When tied on farther back, the wobble tightens.

The Knotted Vi-Blade comes in 2 sizes, 1 ¾ inch/ 45 mm weighing ¼ ounce/ 7 grams fitted with dual #8 VMC treble hooks, and 2 1/8 inch/ 55mm weighing in at ½ ounce/ 15 grams with #6 VMC trebles.

Both sizes of this dynamic vibe bait are available in 3 color patterns, Redhead, Sandstone Red, and Lava Rock Red. All have ultra-sharp, VMC red treble hooks and a dressed tail treble hook. Eposeidon's Madbite Division includes hard baits, soft baits, frog, and metal lures.

The Journey for Mama's Babies, a Non-fiction Book by Melissa R. Pandolf Released Worldwide

Melissa Pandolf, author and mother of four adopted children takes readers through her personal journey of the complex adoption process. The Journey for Mama's babies is a story inspired by the process and unconditional love.

Patchogue, NY, USA (April 8, 2014) -- The Journey for Mama's Babies, enlightening, easy to read, and arrestingly honest, will captivate anyone who has ever navigated the intricacies of the adoption process or who cares about someone who has. Both inspiring and open-eyed, this tender, telling story of a family built across oceans, languages, and every imaginable obstacle will take hold of your heart, and make you hold your loved ones closer still. (

When Melissa Pandolf and her husband, Doug, began the adoption process, the hopeful mother-to-be had her sights set on quickly welcoming two beaming babies to make the Pandolf house a family home. However, after three years, four trips to Russia, one trip to Washington, DC, and two plane crashes that threatened to bring their dream down around them, she came to realize that a bigger destiny awaited them on the other side of the world. As the adoptive parents of four Russian siblings, the young Long Island couple learned the true meaning of family, and what it means to go the extra mile to give your children what they need.

Beginning with the first meeting with an adoption agency, The Journey for Mama's Babies chronicles the Pandolfs' three-year odyssey to bring their babies home. From her naïve initial assumptions about the process to her ultimate hard-won savvy and resolve, Pandolf shares every key aspect of the experience, including the unexpected depression that can be companion to this emotionally wrenching process. With clear-eyed candor, the author recounts the ups and downs, the unexpected twists, and the backward loops that frequently punctuated their mission.

"Finding the time to write about this amazing journey is an accomplishment in and of itself, but being able to produce a book that my children can read and re-read, and digest their journey at their own pace, of how they became "Mama's Babies", is by far the most proudest accomplishment of my life. I love my children fiercely and this book is just one way that I demonstrate my love for them," says the author.

Being able to share the great lengths adoptive parents will go to in order to build their family through adoption, and also give non-adoptive families another angle to view adoption from, has been a blessing in disguise. I find that my readers are thankful for opening their eyes to a world that is full of assumptions."

"Melissa has captured the complexity and the passion of the adoption process in this story. Her honest and ability to share even the most difficult aspects of the adoption process will help other families get through!" says Charlotte Torti MSW, LMSW, Senior Social Worker, Wide Horizons For Children.

The Journey for Mama's Babies, by Melissa R. Pandolf, 194 pages in paperback, ISBN-10: 0615865429, ISBN-13: 978-0615865423, is published by Harpan Publishing (November 26, 2013). It is available through major on-line booksellers and select book stores.

T5 Data Centers™ Leases Third Stand-Alone Data Center Within T5@Dallas Wholesale Data Center Campus

Booming North Texas Data Center Demand Leads to Construction of Additional Capacity.

Dallas, TX, USA (April 8, 2014) -- T5 Data Centers™, innovators in providing state-of-the-art, customizable and highly reliable computing support environments for any enterprise, today announced that three of the four independent data centers housed in its T5@Dallas facility have already been leased, indicating the high demand for reliable, robust data centers in the Dallas market. To meet data center demand, T5 has commenced interior build-out of the 70,000 square-foot Texas4 facility within the T5@Dallas wholesale data center campus.
