Wellness Tourism Worldwide (WTW), a leading wellness tourism research, education and consulting business, is pleased to announce the release of “Wellness Travel: Shaping America’s Health & Economy.”

Wellness Travel Shaping America's Health & Economy

Los Angeles, CA, USA (August 28, 2014) — Wellness Tourism Worldwide (WTW), a leading wellness tourism research, education and consulting business, is pleased to announce the release of “Wellness Travel: Shaping America’s Health & Economy.”

Quoted below in italics is an excerpt from “Wellness Travel: Shaping America’s Health & Economy” outlining who should be involved and why*:

• Medical professionals & wellness practitioners who understand the value of vacations in promoting mental health, physical activity and social engagement
• Parks and recreation professionals and outdoor outfitters who value nature’s solution to a sedentary and urbanized lifestyle

• Environmental organizations that understand that people’s health is tied to the environment in which they live and recreate
• All people who care about work/life balance, quality of life and well-being

Defining wellness has been a challenge to advocates, academics and businesses but even more formidable has been facilitating higher levels of individual, social and national well-being.

Wellness Travel in America: Shaping Health, Businesses & Economy provides unprecedented data on wellness travel in the United States, examining a broad spectrum of stakeholders and confluences between sectors affecting both population and economic health. A culmination of U.S. consumer survey data and extensive research across multiple industries, the report can be used to understand how wellness travel can play a significant role in disease prevention, workplace wellness, vacation policy development, tourism development and destination marketing.

Over 60 tables and figures are contained in this comprehensive 90-page document. The report includes an extensive review of wellness trends, workplace policies, and proprietary data collection and analysis of US consumers interested in healthy travel resulting in a data-driven profile marketers can use to promote their brand.

Epidemic levels of stress, obesity, sleep problems and lack of balance between home and work are drivers to the surging interest in wellness, affecting the way businesses operate. While wellness has garnered attention over the last several years, there has been very little discussion regarding what wellness travel means to U.S. consumers, businesses and the travel industry.

Concepts such as wellness vacations, healthy hotels, and business related wellness perks are on the rise as organizations seek to contain healthcare costs and drive volume and profits.

This report can be used to:

• Better integrate wellness concepts in leisure travel and business
• Gain understanding of wellness travel consumers, their interests, perceptions and needs as well as motivations, decisions and preferences in order to
• Better conceptualize wellness tourism as away to mitigate health, social and environmental problems related to an urbanized, industrialized world
• Improve, innovate and create travel products and services to positively impact health, happiness, productivity and ultimately strengthen America’s economy
• Promote healthy lifestyle vacation travel as an engine for economic growth, personal enrichment and better work/life balance

Wellness Tourism Worldwide Founder & CEO, Camille Hoheb, remarked, “Wellness tourism cuts across multiple sectors to stimulate entrepreneurship, innovation and a more comprehensive approach to population health and financial stability.” Adding, “Wellness Tourism Worldwide is constantly seeking ways to help others achieve their professional success and personal wellness goals and we believe this Wellness Travel: Shaping America’s Health & Economy, provides ample recommendations to do just that.”

New NanoMarkets Report Projects Smart Lighting Chips Markets to Reach Over $1.0 Billion by 2019

Based on the broad acceptance of the Internet-of-Things (IoT), of which smart lighting is a part, NanoMarkets has considerably upgraded its long-term forecasts for smart lighting compared with a previous report we issued in 2013.

NanoMarkets

Glen Allen, Virginia (June 24, 2014) — The market for LED drivers, MCUs, sensors and other chips used in smart lighting will grow from around $67 million in 2014 to $1.05 billion in 2019. This is according to a new report from industry analyst firm NanoMarkets titled, “The Markets for Smart Lighting Drivers, Controllers and Sensor Chips – 2014.” Based on the broad acceptance of the Internet-of-Things (IoT), of which smart lighting is a part, NanoMarkets has considerably upgraded its long-term forecasts for smart lighting compared with a previous report we issued in 2013.

For more details about the report: http://www.nanomarkets.net/market_reports/report/the-markets-for-smart-lighting-drivers-controllers-and-sensor-chips-2014.

The firm recently issued two separate reports on smart lighting markets in a two volume series. See http://www.nanomarkets.net/market_reports/report/smart-lighting-markets-2014-v1-v2 for details.

About the report:

The report, “The Markets for Smart Lighting Drivers, Controllers and Sensor Chips – 2014,” provides insight into the market opportunities available to the semiconductor industry as the result of the current boom in smart lighting, which itself is part of the transition to an IoT. Smart lighting provides users high levels of energy efficiency, color tuning (mood enhancement) capabilities and/or visible light communications.

The report contains detailed eight-year market projections of seven major smart lighting chip types in both revenue and volume terms. Additional breakouts are provided by (1) the part of the lighting system in which the chips are used and (2) the technology generation of the system itself and (3) the type of building, vehicle or location in which the smart lighting systems will be used.

Firms mentioned in the report include: Acuity Brands, ARM, Atmel, Broadcom, California Eastern Labs, Casio, Cavet, Cypress Semiconductor, Daintree Networks, Digi, Dresden elektronik, Eastfield, Easylite, Echoflex, Energy Automation Systems, EnOcean, Fifth Light, FlexiPanel, Freescale, Leviton, IBSEN, Infineon, Intel, Leedarson, Libellium, Lumenergi, Lumetric, Lutron, Luxim, Marvell, Masco, Microchip Technology, MK Electric, MMB Research, Nivis, NXP, OLEDCOMM, Omnio, Osram, Panasonic, Philips, Radiocrafts, Radios Inc., Renesas, RF Monolithics, Schneider Electric, Sena, Sharp, Siemens, Silicon Labs, STMicroelectronics, Supreme Architecture, Sylvania, Telegesis, Texas Instruments, Universal Lighting, and Zonoff.

From the report:

The LED lighting market is expected to expand rapidly and much of the next-generation of LED lighting being deployed will be “smart.” We are seeing a growing interest in smart lighting by the chipmakers as part of their refocusing on Internet-of-Things opportunities. New types of intelligent LED drivers with embedded sensors and MCUs are expected to emerge as a result. Sales of LED drivers for smart lighting systems are expected to reach $525 million by 2019.

Despite such growth, LED driver chips for energy efficient lighting will commoditize quickly. It will become increasingly hard to make the case for smart lighting on just efficiency grounds anymore. As a result, NanoMarkets believes that chipmakers will then turn their attention to color-tunable lighting for improved mood, health and job performance. Here there is still considerable opportunity to designing innovative chips enabling cool-to-warm adjustment and the ability to cycle through a range of colors. Chips consumed by color tuning smart lighting systems will reach almost $260 million by 2019. Future light tuning chips for lighting systems will also be built around a new generation of LED microarrays.

Standards development for smart lighting-related wireless networking has accelerated in the past year. Important new developments in this area include the evolution of Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) to control lighting using QR codes and the emergence of a Google protocol for smart lighting networking that incorporates Ipv6. Meanwhile, ZigBee light bulbs getting cheaper thanks to recent “smart lamp” introductions from GE and possibly others. By 2019, the revenues generated by smart lighting sensors are expected to exceed $220 million.

About NanoMarkets:

NanoMarkets tracks and analyzes emerging market opportunities in solid-state lighting, energy, electronics and other markets created by developments in advanced materials. The firm is a recognized leader in industry analysis and forecasts of this kind and has been covering the smart lighting space for more than four years.
