  • Vertebral Compression Fracture Devices Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends And Forecast, 2013 - 2019

    By - Transparency

    Vertebral compression fracture (VCF), a spinal disorder is caused due to the compression of vertebrae because of trauma, osteoporosis, primary tumors or infections; resulting in spinal deformity, disability, and acute or chronic pain. Such fractures may be mild or severe in nature and most often occur in the thoracic and lumbar parts of the spinal cord. The non-surgical procedures for treating pain caused in VCF include bed rest, pain medication, back bracing, and physiotherapy. Modern VCF treatment options such as minimally invasive surgical procedures which involve injecting of cementing...

  • Food and Beverage Metal Cans Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 - 2019

    By - Transparency

    In the early 1990’s, the metal can manufacturing industry experienced a huge leap in demand for its products due to three major reasons: rising costs of existing materials used in the packaging industry, major improvements in metal can manufacture along with slight cost reductions and the end of the cold war which opened up new and emerging markets in the Asia-Pacific region. Add to this the fact that metal cans could be easily recycled and re-used in an in-expensive manner by simply melting the waste. Metal can manufacturing thus became an industry within an industry and started...
