 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...

Fluorspar Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends And Forecast, 2013 - 2019
By - Transparency Market Research
Fluorspar is the commercial name for the mineral fluorite (calcium fluoride CaF2). Commercially fluorspar is graded according to quality and attributes into acid grade, ceramic grade and metallurgical grade. It generally develops well formed cubic crystals exhibiting a wide range of colors. The end use is determined by the grade of the fluorspar. Almost two thirds of the world’s production of fluorspar is used for the manufacturing of hydrofluoric acid (HF). Hydrofluoric acid is used as a feedstock for the manufacturing of fluorine containing compounds like fluoropolymers and...
