India said Tuesday that it will approve the use of all coronavirus vaccines that have been given an emergency nod by the World Health Organization or regulators in the United States, Europe, Britain or Japan. India’s Health Ministry said the decision was aimed at hastening the use of shots made in other countries and expanding the “basket of vaccines” available for domestic use. India had earlier given the nod to the AstraZeneca vaccine made by Serum Institute of India and another one made by the Indian company Bharat Biotech.
Sterling rose for a second day against the dollar and the euro on Tuesday, as analysts said Britain's vaccination drive had not been derailed by its curbing of the use of AstraZeneca's COVID-19 vaccine. The pound lost 1% against the dollar last week as Britain advised alternatives to the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine to vaccinate under-30s. Britain has largely depended on the AstraZeneca vaccine so far to immunize more than half of its population.

(Bloomberg) -- China ordered 34 internet corporations Tuesday to rectify their anti-competitive practices within the next month, signaling that Beijing’s scrutiny of its most powerful firms hasn’t ended with the conclusion of a probe into Alibaba Group Holding Ltd.Shares in Tencent Holdings Ltd. and Meituan extended losses after the State Administration for Market Regulation issued a stern statement emphasizing it will continue to eradicate abuses of information and market dominance among other violations. Also summoned to an ad-hoc meeting with the watchdog on Tuesday were industry leaders including TikTok owner ByteDance Ltd., search giant Baidu Inc. and JD.com Inc.Regulators warned internet companies to “heed Alibaba’s example,” reaffirming their intent to abolish forced exclusivity among other practices. The meeting -- organized jointly with the cyberspace and tax regulators -- came days after Beijing wrapped up a four-month probe into Alibaba by slapping a record $2.8 billion fine on the e-commerce giant for abuse of market dominance.The penalty was less severe than many feared and lifted a cloud of uncertainty hanging over founder Jack Ma’s internet empire. It also came after the Chinese central bank ordered an overhaul of his Ant Group Co. fintech titan.Alibaba’s shares have gained 7% since the start of the week, but its fellow Chinese internet giants have gyrated while investors digest the rapid-fire announcements and concerns grow that Beijing’s scrutiny will extend beyond Alibaba. On Tuesday, Tencent gave up early gains to finish down slightly while Meituan, video service Kuaishou Technology and JD all slid more than 3% in Hong Kong.“The base line of policies cannot the crossed, the red line of laws cannot be touched,” the market watchdog said in the statement on Tuesday.The investigation into Alibaba was one of the opening salvos in a campaign seemingly designed to curb the power of China’s internet leaders, which kicked off after Ma infamously rebuked “pawn shop” lenders, regulators who don’t get the internet, and the “old men” of the global banking community. Those comments set in motion an unprecedented regulatory offensive, including scuttling Ant’s $35 billion initial public offering.The 34 firms summoned Tuesday must now undergo complete rectification after conducting internal checks and inspections over the next month, and make a pledge to society to obey rules and laws, the antitrust watchdog said in its statement. Regulators will organize follow-up inspections and companies that continue to engage in abuses like forced exclusivity -- a practice that “flagrantly trampled and destroyed” market order -- will be dealt with severely.The regulator also highlighted abuses like acquisitions that squeeze out smaller rivals and burning through cash to grab market share in community group buying, currently the hottest e-commerce arena in China. Firms also need to address issues like counterfeiting, data leaks and tax evasion, according to the statement.“This is positive because the SAMR is giving the platforms one month to review their practices, rather than dish out fines and penalties without warning,” Bloomberg Intelligence senior analyst Vey-Sern Ling said. “They are using Alibaba as an example to deter misbehavior from the rest of the industry players. If these companies toe the line, industry competition can become healthier. ”(Updates with share action from the fifth paragraph)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.

Dublin, April 13, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Structured Cabling Global Market Report 2021: COVID-19 Impact and Recovery" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering. Structured Cabling Global Market Report 2021: COVID-19 Impact and Recovery provides the strategists, marketers and senior management with the critical information they need to assess the global structured cabling market. The global structured cabling market is expected to grow from $11 billion in 2020 to $11.9 billion in 2021 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.1%. The growth is mainly due to the companies rearranging their operations and recovering from the COVID-19 impact, which had earlier led to restrictive containment measures involving social distancing, remote working, and the closure of commercial activities that resulted in operational challenges. The market is expected to reach $16.5 billion in 2025 at a CAGR of 8.4%.The structured cabling market consists of sales of structured cabling products by entities (organizations, sole traders, and partnerships) that are engaged in manufacturing structured cabling systems of cabling and associated hardware. Structured cabling is defined as building or campus cabling infrastructure such as telecommunication cabling or ethernet cabling, a properly designed and installed structure cabling provides the infrastructure that delivers the flexibility to make changes to the cabling system, maximize system availability, delivers predictable performance.The main types of structured cabling are fiber optic cables and copper cables. A fiber optic cable is a medium that contains one or more optical fibers through which high-speed data is transmitted. Copper cable is a physical cable medium made of copper through which data is transmitted. The structured cabling is used by IT & telecommunication, residential & commercial, government & education, and transportation industries for applications in local area network (LAN) and data centers.North America was the largest region in the structured cabling market in 2020. Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing region during the forecast period. The regions covered in this report are Asia-Pacific, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, North America, South America, Middle East, and Africa.The fluctuating copper prices acted as a major restraint for the growth of the structured cables market. Network cables are manufactured with copper either in solid or stranded wires. Copper prices rapidly change due to the demand for scrap and the rate of production in the fields like construction, technology, or electrical manufacturing, and increase the operational and capital expenditure. According to Goldman Sachs, the 12-month forecast for copper is estimated to be $9,500 per metric ton and the Wall Street expects the higher average price for the next two years with the estimated copper pricing averaging around $8,625 in 2021 and expected to be $9,175 in 2022. Therefore, the fluctuating copper price has a negative impact on the structured cabling market.In October 2019, Legrand, a France-based company specializing in electrical and digital building infrastructures, acquired Connectrac for an undisclosed amount. The acquisition of Connectrac allows Legrand the ability to reach additional market segments as well as a platform to expand the ecosystem in commercial interiors. Connectrac is a US-based company engaged in manufacturing and selling connectivity solutions for interior spaces. The company's products provide connections to telecom, power and AV via unique, floor-based wireway systems and accessories.The increasing demand for high-speed connectivity is likely to contribute to the growth of the structured cabling market. Structured cabling includes a set of cables and hardware that makes the telecommunication infrastructure and helps in transferring video, voice, and data signals from one point to another through a communication network in an enterprise. High-speed connectivity requires connected devices and cables for a smooth and high-speed network connection. The companies operating in the structured cabling market are continuously focusing on developing new products to empower enterprises digitally and to generate higher revenues for the company. Hence, the launch of innovative solutions is gaining immense popularity in the structured cabling market.
