The fingerprint sensor is fast, reliable, convenient, cost-effective and can be seamlessly integrated into different devices. As a result, it finds application in the consumer electronics, government and law enforcement, aerospace, healthcare, defense and military, and banking, financial services and insurance (BFSI), travel and immigration sectors across the globe.The increasing instances of security breaches in various industries are driving the sales of fingerprint sensors. These devices are employed to strengthen the authentication process and provide secure access control to numerous facilities and IT systems. Apart from this, these sensors are gaining widespread adoption in digitizing time and attendance systems in corporate and government organizations worldwide. Furthermore, due to the growing trend of automation, fingerprint sensors are extensively being integrated into smartphones, wearables and modern vehicles to launch engine operations and unlock phones, applications and door locks.

The European Union took a defiant tone on Wednesday as the standoff over resuming post-Brexit trade negotiations with the United Kingdom intensified, telling London that “you cannot have your cake and eat it too.” European Council President Charles Michel refused to bow to British insistence for the EU to fundamentally change its negotiating stance and cede more to U.K. demands. Michel said instead that if Britain wants vast access to the 27-member bloc's markets, it will equally have to keep its waters open to EU fishermen, something the U.K. government has said it doesn't want to do.

A lucky echidna puggle, or baby spiny anteater, that survived an attack by birds and fell from a tree is taking its first steps as zoo keepers in Australia hand-feed the young mammal. Members of the public brought the young echidna to the Taronga Zoo in Sydney last month after it fell 4 m (13 ft) from a tree onto their balcony, somehow escaping becoming supper for the winner of a clash between a raven and a magpie. "He was lost from his mum and the story is that some people were just sitting on their balcony one nice afternoon and they heard this thud and they looked down and they saw this little guy on the balcony," said Taronga Zoo Senior Keeper Sarah Male.

(Bloomberg) -- Iberdrola SA agreed to buy PNM Resources Inc. for $4.3 billion, pushing deeper into the U.S. power market as the Spanish utility strengthens its position as a global giant in an industry that’s being transformed.The deal is the company’s second in two months after Iberdrola bought Infigen Energy in Australia in September. It continues a strategy by Chief Executive Officer Ignacio Galan to grow beyond the Iberian peninsula and build a business with worldwide reach in power grids and renewables plants.Galan was among the first in the utility business to wind down coal plants and build renewables, taking advantage of a plunge in the cost of wind turbines and government incentives to slash emissions. That’s touched off a flurry of deals to reshape the electricity industry, drawing oil majors including Royal Dutch Shell Plc and Total SA to grab a part of a business once dominated by utilities.It also reflects increasing focus on the transition to cleaner energy in the U.S., driven by economics favoring wind and solar farms over coal -- despite President Donald Trump’s effort to water down environmental rules. In recent months, the renewables-focused company NextEra Energy Inc. became the world’s largest utility owner by market value and weighed an offer for power giant Duke Energy Corp.Global AmbitionGalan is seeking to bring Iberdrola into new markets in the most developed economies, firming up routes to build more green power projects in the coming years. He has seen the coronavirus-induced economic downturn as an opportunity to boost spending, enacting a 10 billion euro ($11.9 billion) investment plan.PNM provides power to about 790,000 homes and businesses in Texas and New Mexico and has 2.8 gigawatts of generation capacity, according to information on its website. Like many U.S. utilities, it’s been pushing to retire coal plants and adding renewable energy, moves in step an effort Iberdrola started pursuing almost two decades ago.Iberdrola posted positive financial results Wednesday with increases in net profit and earnings in the three months to September. The company saw a 52% rise in renewable investment in the first nine months of 2020 and has added 4.6 gigawatts of power capacity in the last 12 months.The deal to buy PNM is for $50.30 per PNM share, a 10% premium to yesterday’s closing price but also a 10% discount to the pre-Covid high earlier this year.An accord would also offer Iberdrola the chance to further expand beyond the territory of its New York-listed unit Avangrid Inc., which works in the northeastern U.S. Although the Madrid-based utility, one of the world’s leading producers of renewable energy, already operates across North America, its main business is around Avangrid.PNM will give Iberdrola 10 regulated electricity companies in six states -- New York, Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Mexico and Texas, according to the company.Iberdrola’s shares are up 19% this year, making it the second largest company in the benchmark Ibex-35 by market capitalization.PNM has received regulatory approval to more than triple its renewable-power capacity to 2 gigawatts by the end of 2022. It has set a goal to be 100% emissions free by 2040.The deal requires approval from a PNM shareholders meeting.(Updates with earnings in the seventh paragraph)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

Dublin, Oct. 21, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Specialty Fats & Oils Market by Type (Specialty Fats & Specialty Oils), Application (Chocolate & Confectionery, Bakery Product, Processed Food, Animal Nutrition, Dairy Product, and Infant Nutrition), Form (Dry & Liquid), & Region - Global Forecast to 2026" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering. Specialty fats & oils are the integral components in a wide range of products such as margarine, shortenings, dressings, confectionery products, baked goods, snack foods, infant formulas, and non-dairy creamers. Specialty fats & oils feature several important functionalities as a filling, coating, stabilizing as well as texturing, which play a pivotal role in various food processing. With the fluctuation in global cocoa production as well as variation in prices, over the past couple of years, there has been imbalance in the supply-demand graph. This one factor has led to the rise in demand for cocoa butter alternatives, which is one of the types of specialty fats. The Asia Pacific market is experiencing a surge in consumption rate for bakery as well as confectionery products, a rise in demand for functional food products, and a rise in awareness about the health benefits associated with the consumption of clean label food products among the consumers. By type, the specialty oils subtype is projected to account for the fastest market growth in the specialty fats and oils market during the forecast period. Specialty oils are oils with special dietary or functional properties and are used in supplements, special culinary applications, and cosmetics. All kinds of specialty oils, such as peanut, sunflower, soybean, rapeseed, and palm, find their applications in special applications such as cosmetics and pharmaceutically produced topical soft gels and liquid orals. In foods their key applications include frying oils, liquid butter alternatives, butter oil substitutes, filling fats, cake oils, salad oils, non-dairy creamers, and confectionery coatings, for which maintenance of their liquidity is necessary. By application, the chocolates and confectionery subtype is projected to be the fastest growing segment in the Specialty fats & oils market during the forecast period. The world is experiencing a steady rise in the demand for confectionaries, especially chocolates. However, according to the International Cocoa Organization (ICCO), there has been a deficit in the demand and supply of cocoa globally. In 2018-2019, the deficit accounted for 52 thousand tonnes, while in 2019-2020, it is estimated to go up to 80 thousand tonnes. Due to this, there is a rise in the need for substitutes Key Topics Covered: 1 Introduction 2 Research Methodology 3 Executive Summary 4 Premium Insights 5 Market Overview 6 Impact of COVID -19 on the Specialty Fats & Oils Market 7 Specialty Fats & Oils Market, by Type 8 Specialty Fats & Oils Market, by Application 9 Specialty Fats & Oils Market, by Form 10 Specialty Fats & Oils Market, by Functionality 11 Specialty Fats & Oils Market, by Region 12 Competitive Landscape 13 Company Evaluation Matrix & Company Profiles AAK ABApical Group Ltd.Bako WalesBunge LimitedCargill, IncorporatedFlorin AgFuji OilGolden Agri-Resources Ltd.

Student activists applied to a court Wednesday to revoke a state of emergency the government declared last week to try to rein in Thailand's growing protests. Demonstrations have continued daily in a movement that calls for Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha to step down, for a more democratic constitution and for reforms to the monarchy — a revered institution traditionally treated as sacrosanct in Thailand. Protesters were gathering Wednesday for an eighth straight day, even though many of their top leaders have been detained and the state of emergency bans public gatherings of more than four people.
