 The industry shakeout in CIGS PV has been brutal.  In 2010 there were more than 25 companies with plans for over 1 GW of capacity, but to date only Solar Frontier has achieved the goal.  As the shakeout continued, there were even questions whether any new capacity would be added beyond the approximately 3 GW that was in place as the CIGS sector faced extreme price pressure from falling silicon based PV. Nonetheless, NanoMarkets believes that while multiple start-ups have either been liquidated or acquired, the remaining few large CIGS players are poised to add significant capacity.  
 
 This report will analyze the opportunities that are emerging for CIGS in this very new phase of the solar industry.  The report takes a detailed look into the technical...

Multi-Infarct Dementia (MID) Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2014 - 2020
By - Transparency Market Research
Multi-infarct dementia (MID) is one of the common causes of memory loss among elderly people as a result of reduced blood flow to parts of the brain. The primary reason for multi-infarct dementia is a series of minor strokes resulting in disruption of blood flow leading towards the brain. Since this medical condition arises due to problematic vessels, it is also known as vascular dementia (VaD). Multi-infarct dementia commonly affects people of age group 55 to 75 years. According to the National Institutes of Health, multi-infarct dementia is the second leading form of dementia,...
