"In making investment and sales decisions, it is imperative that executives understand the context within which they will be operating," said Frost & Sullivan Industrial Automation and Process Control Global Vice President Sath Rao.  "Game changing trends exist in many areas — the U.S. shale boom is one example. Manufacturing competitiveness in the U.S. is likely to improve as a result of the shale gas revolution. The growth in this industry is expected to place downward pressure on natural gas prices, which will benefit the manufacturing and process industries even further, and have repercussions for industries globally."
