40 The PCB Magazine • November 2017 Smart Bandage Could Promote Better, Faster Healing Researchers from the University of Nebraska-Lin- coln, Harvard Medical School, and MIT have de- signed a smart bandage that could eventually heal chronic wounds or battlefield injuries with every fi- ber of its being. Additive Manufacturing—a Revolution in Production Engineering Additive manufacturing processes are the major topic for the future of production engineering. Ap- plications range from producing machine parts of metal through to 3D printing of concrete. Western EU IT Spending Highlights Interest in Next-Gen Technologies Across Vertical Markets According to a new study from IDC, IT spend in Western Europe will total $453.8 billion in 2017, a 2.7% increase compared with 2016. IT spending will continue to grow at a 2.0% five-year CAGR in 2021. Novel Circuit Design Boosts Wearable Thermoelectric Generators Using flexible conducting polymers and novel cir- cuitry patterns printed on paper, researchers have demonstrated proof-of-concept wearable thermo- electric generators that can harvest energy from body heat to power simple biosensors for measur- ing heart rate, respiration or other factors. Industrial Control and Factory Automation Market Worth $240B by 2023 The market is expected to be valued at $239.11 billion by 2023 from $155.26 billion in 2017, at a CAGR of 7.4% between 2017 and 2023. Electrodeposited Copper Foils Market Driven by Hybrid and Electric Vehicles The global electrodeposited copper foils market is estimated to be valued at $6.6 million by the end of the year 2017 and is poised to touch a value of $16 million by the end of the year 2025, registering a CAGR of 11.6% during the assess- ment period. Quantum Computers Demand New Encryption Data that is confidential today will no longer be secure when quantum computers arrive. Howev- er, researchers have a solution ready in advance— quantum cryptography. Automotive Telematics Systems Revenue to Reach $6.7 Billion Globally in 2023 Global revenue from automotive telematics sys- tems will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of nearly 17% to more than $6.7 billion by the end of 2023, according to new research from business information provider IHS Markit. 1.7 Million New Robots to Transform the World's Factories by 2020 By 2020 more than 1.7 million new industrial ro- bots will be installed in factories around the world. Today, the strongest growth in the robotics indus- try is in Asia—lead by China as the world´s num- ber one marketplace. ALCF Supercomputers Help Address LHC's Growing Computing Needs Particle collision experiments at CERN's Large Had- ron Collider (LHC)—the world's largest particle accelerator—will generate around 50 petabytes (50 million gigabytes) of data this year that must be processed and analyzed to aid in the facility's search for new physics discoveries.
