The industrial clothes dryer market has a buyer power score of 3.1 out of 5, reflecting moderate buyer power. Low price volatility due to higher competition from rising imports has supported buyer negotiating power during the past three years, says IBISWorld analyst Kiera Outlaw. However, low availability of substitutes and high market share concentration have worked against buyer power during the period. Major vendors in this market include Alliance Laundry Systems, Pellerin Milnor Corporation and American Dryer Corporation.
Low price volatility during the past three years has allowed buyers to fulfill their industrial dryer needs comfortably, without fearing the risk of sudden price increases. Moreover, rising import penetration has helped maintain low price volatility, while also providing the market with cheaper alternatives. Thus, buyers have various industrial clothes dryer options to choose from, continues Outlaw. Buyers can also opt to rent or lease the equipment, as opposed to purchasing it outright due to the considerable financing arrangements that purchasing necessitates; however, the availability of substitute equipment is low. In fact, no alternative products on the market can replace the function of clothes dryers.
Other market characteristics have also worked against buyer power. Because of the need to secure financing when purchasing new industrial dryers, buyers are also exposed to high switching costs. High switching costs prevent buyers from easily maneuvering from one supplier to the next. Furthermore, due to some merger and acquisition activity, market share concentration has been rising, further hindering buyer power. Even though suppliers compete on price, price-based competition is mild and buyers may not realize significant cost savings when leveraging quotes, especially when strong brand-name recognition applies. With fewer suppliers, buyer power begins to weaken, forcing buyers to leverage other market characteristics that are working in their favor, such as low price volatility.

Stephen T. Greenberg, M.D., with offices in Woodbury, Southampton and Manhattan, is used to seeing an increase in business due to people making New Year’s Resolutions to get the body or face they have always wanted. “Surprisingly, our overall business is always up this time of the year, with surgical bookings increasing over 20% from the previous January,” confides Dr. Greenberg. “The reason is pretty simple – most patients want to have their surgery done during the winter months, so that they are healed and prepared for the summer. Patients can hide under baggy clothing and reveal themselves as the weather gets warmer. However, January is also a month of new beginnings and patients feel the pressure to finally do something good for themselves.”
“Plenty of patients are still coming in for a number of surgical procedures. Breast augmentations and liposuction remain two of the most requested operations. But we’re also seeing an influx of new patients who are opting for non-surgical procedures, such as Ulthera skin tightening to obtain a better, slimmer or younger look,” says Dr. Greenberg.
Dr. Greenberg has also opened a brand new, state-of-the-art office and spa at 160 Crossways Park Drive, Woodbury, NY. The luxury injection suites and spa offers the most technologically advanced injectibles and lasers. The spa also offers organic all natural spray tanning that is safe for your skin and can give you a summer glow during the harsh winter months.

Infinity Incentive Group knows that many people may want to take a vacation now that the weather is getting cooler. As fall rapidly approaches, now is the time to take an unforgettable trip with friends and family. However, before arriving at the desired destination, it is important to be prepared for the trip. Aside from packing essential clothes and toiletries, travelers will need to have a variety of other things in mind before jetting off on vacation. To have the best trip possible, be sure to follow these helpful tips.
1. Bank accounts: Before taking a trip, it is important for a traveler to contact his or her bank to ensure that they are aware of the traveler being outside of the country. Nowadays, banks keep a close eye on accounts to make sure that there is no questionable activity going on. If the company notices that there are things being purchased outside of the country, it will put up a red flag and they may shut down the account. By contacting the bank beforehand and letting them know that the vacationer will indeed be outside of the country, the account will not get shut down. Also look into any travel checking accounts that the bank may offer.
2. Medicine: When traveling anywhere, one needs to bring their medicine that they use on a daily basis. Something else that vacationers should take with them are some generic medicines as well. Good medicines to have on hand include generic antibiotics, painkillers, cold medicine and over-the-counter allergy medicine.
3. Vaccines: Infinity Incentive Group knows that it is imperative travelers get any necessary vaccines before leaving the country. A traveler can contact his or her doctor to make sure that they have the proper ones they need before they travel.
The Online Designer Clothing Sales industry has grown furiously for more than a decade as consumers increasingly shift toward shopping online. Every year, more than 100 million Americans purchase goods from the online retail marketplace, one of the fastest-growing sectors in the United States. A recent survey by Nielsen indicates that clothing, accessories and shoes are the second-most popular category of items (after books) that consumers consider purchasing online. Furthermore, as traditional (i.e. brick-and-mortar) retailers have entered the online realm to recapture sales that exclusively online retailers have claimed, industry revenue has continued to expand. IBISWorld estimates that industry revenue increased at an annualized rate over the five years to 2014, including an astronomical revenue boost in 2014.
According to IBISWorld Industry Analyst Will McKitterick, “The growth of this relatively new industry has coincided with the increasing ubiquity of internet access, particularly broadband.” The easier and more affordable it is for consumers to connect to the internet, the more accessible online retailers become, making consumers more likely to purchase from these stores. According to internet market research firm ComScore, consumers who use broadband connections are more likely to make online purchases than those who use dial-up internet connections because broadband provides better speeds, bandwidth and connection stability. Various industry sources also attribute rapid industry growth to firms’ emphasis on top-notch customer service. Successful customer satisfaction strategies have included free shipping for deliveries and returns, generous return policies and 24-hour customer service call centers.
The industry will continue expanding over the next five years, although an increasingly saturated market will result in relatively slower growth. “IBISWorld anticipates industry revenue will increase at an average annual rate over the five years to 2019,” says McKitterick. Many of the same factors that contributed to the industry’s ascent in previous years will carry forward into the next five years, including the rising acceptance of online shopping. Furthermore, rising consumer confidence, and thus consumer spending, will aid the industry’s long-term prospects.

This industry sells designer apparel, shoes and accessories online. Industry operators may offer a wide variety of brands or a single designer’s collections. Designer clothing carries the logo or name of a recognized designer, but the actual designer does not always create the clothing. Often, designer apparel is created under a licensing agreement with a manufacturing company.

Does your application call for a fixed cable or does it require the cable to twist, bend or flex during operation?
Continuous flex cable is needed when the cable is flexing in a linear motion, such as a festoon or cable track system. The individual conductors, in a continuous flex cable, are arranged in a helical-concentric-layered configuration with each layers conductor-lay opposite to the next.
Twist or Torsional flex cable is needed when the cable is twisting in a radial motion, similar to wringing out a wash cloth. The individual conductors are arranged in a helical-concentric-layered configuration with each layers conductor-lay matching the next.
Know your environmental requirements.
Is the environment dry or is there water, oil or cutting fluid present?
PVC Cable is a standard cable sheath material in the controls industry. Its lower relative cost and overall resistance to most chemicals makes it a popular choice.
PUR Cable is needed when the cable will be exposed to oils and cutting fluid. This makes it the standard choice for the milling, grinding or roll forming industries. PUR also offers exceptional wear resistance.
Electro-Magnetic Interference and Ground Potential Equalization. This is a very complicated and scientific subject; however, there are some basic rules of thumb that you can follow to keep you up and running:
1. Best practice is to maintain your cable shield between the device (encoder) and the control panel. That is assuming that you are sure that your machine is well grounded and Potential Equalization cables are in place. It is imperative to avoid potential shift/offset between the electrical cabinet and the encoder housing via the encoder cable shield.
2. If you are not sure about your grounding situation, its best to only connect your shield at the panel end.
Twisted Pairs – If your device is capable of outputting a differential signal and and your interface card is capable of receiving a differential signal; use it and do so using twisted pair cabling. The idea is to minimize or eliminate induced crosstalk along the transmission path.
We have what you need – TR Electronic stocks miles of various encoder cables as well as many different connectivity solutions for encoders and sensors.
Having been an encoder guy for 10 years now, I can certainly tell you that I have had my fair share of urgent “Line Down” requests for help. Many of these system failures are caused by faulty or improperly selected cables.
