Soaring Demand Drives Landscape Lighting Market Growth During the Forecast Period, 2018 to 2028

Fact.MR has announced the addition of the Landscape Lighting Market Forecast, Trend Analysis & Competition Tracking - Global Market Insights 2018 to 2028"report to their offering.

Rockville, MD -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/02/2019 -- The development of energy-efficient and economic LEDs lighting products has broaden the application of the LED lights including the outdoors also. Due to advancements in landscape lighting technology, (such as the use of chip-on-board technology) landscape lighting are being adopted significantly. Moreover, the day and night monitoring of the outside environment is done with the help of the landscape lighting. The landscape lighting market is expected to have a significant growth during the forecast period owing to the promising application of landscape lighting inside the house and in roadways also. The modern landscape lighting is expected to encourage people to switch from conventional lighting solutions to LED landscape lighting solutions due to the advanced features of the landscape lighting market. In addition, the arrival of efficient and smart technologies, such as daylight sensors and control systems (for the remote monitoring of smart street lights) provide a rise in potential opportunities for the landscape lighting market.

24 Apr 2019 to 24 Apr 2019

This Engineering/ Technical Event is organised by IES Aerospace Engineering Technical Committee (AETC).

Speaker: Associate Professor Dr. Liu Erjia, School of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering, College of Engineering, Nanyang Technological University (NTU)

Cold spray is attracting increasing interest as a coating, repair and additive manufacturing process across a large number of industry sectors. Recent advances in equipment, coupled with novel approaches to the manufacturing and metallurgy of the materials employed in cold spray are encouraging the development of load bearing applications for AI, Fe, Ni and Ti alloy components.

Coatings and surface engineering: addressing the needs of industry

Water repellence; lightning conduction; increased abrasion resistance all properties which can be imparted to a material through the use of coatings and surface engineering.


The complex castings made of difficult-to-weld alloys used in aircraft structures can easily suffer superficial damage, either during their production as a result of casting defects or mismachining, or during service as a result of wear and corrosion.

Alongside surface engineering for repairs, the aerospace sector also needs durable anti-icing and anti-fouling coatings, improved bulk materials for aircraft leading edges, thermally resistant coatings and advanced composite materials for aircraft pipelines.

Construction & Built Environment

The construction industry is always seeking improved ways to repel moisture, limit the impact of fouling and preserve dimensional stability, appearance and insulation performance.

The specific objective of Module 1 on Piling & Foundations is to familiarize participants with piling methods adopted in Singapore and the region and how to supervise the installation of piles. The sub-topic on foundations will provide participants with knowledge on various types of foundations and their construction and supervision.

Underground and related structures are of great significance to the local construction industry. Many structures have to be built below ground and their design and construction are of importance to those in the civil engineering profession.Resident Engineers and Resident Technical Officers need to be familiar with the construction and supervision of underground and associated structures, as such foundations, basements, tunnels and earth-retaining structures.

This course covers topics rarely covered to any great extent at undergraduate level. The emphasis is on hand-based methods. They can be used directly for design or for the checking of computer-based designs. However, rather than just providing an alternate design method of equal difficulty to conventional procedures, it will be found that many problems can be tackled surprisingly easily using these powerful methods. The methods are an aid to understanding. Many worked examples are presented showing how the various methods can be used. The emphasis is on the use of the methods for practical problem solving, so little theory is presented. Appropriate reference will also be made to SS EN 1992 series on Design of Concrete Structures

This particular module will discuss the background of this Court of Appeal case and its direct impact on site supervisors as well as their employers. The course will also provide participants with an up-to-date essential knowledge of Singapores laws on negligence and the common law duty of RTO & RE (as well as engineers and other technical professional s) which are relevant to the engineering building construction (ECB) industries and are faced by or connected with ECB projects.

This course aims to highlight the key environmental concerns relating to air and water pollution from construction sites. The scope of the course will cover sources and activities on worksites that generate pollution, as well as the impact of this pollution on our environment. Regulations, management and control measures to address these pollution concerns will also be discussed.

he success of a development project depends largely on the effectiveness of the project manager and the-project team members who are involved in the project. Being a key member of the project team, it is important for the engineer to acquire the knowledge and skills of project management, so that they will be able to work closely with the project manager and contribute positively to the success of the projects.To achieve good quality construction works, it is important for the engineer to be able to manage the design process and supervise the construction work on site effectively. This course will also cover the effective management of design process by the engineers and effective supervision of construction works by the engineers and RTOs.This course will also cover the risk assessment and safety management of construction works, to provide a safe environment for all personnel working on site.In addition, this course will also touch on the skill sets required for managing projects overseas, particularly in China.
