 All electric vehicles have at least one traction motor, so the market for electric vehicle traction motors is one of the largest markets for electric vehicle parts and a primary determinant of the performance and affordability of a given vehicle. Indeed, IDTechEx Research find that in 2013 44.6 million electric motors will be needed for vehicles, rising to 147.7 million in 2023. 
   
 Today, the motors that propel electric vehicles on land, through water and in the air are mainly brushless because brushed commutator motors are on the way out. Most of the number and the value of those brushless traction motors lies in permanent magnet synchronous ones, notably Brushless DC ""BLDC"", a form with trapezoidal waveform, and Permanent Magnet AC ""PMAC"", a type with a sinusoidal...

According to Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, airline industry liberates approximately 2% of global anthropogenic CO2 emissions. The aviation industry has invested significant amounts in improving their engine designs and fuel efficiency. Yet despite of these improvements in mechanism, emissions are still growing in the aviation industry. The aviation fuel accounts for a major share of the operating costs for an airline company. Fluctuations in the crude oil prices impact the profit margins of this industry. Renewable aviation fuel is an innovative solution to reduce carbon...
Renewable Chemicals - Global Industry Analysis, Market Share, Size, Growth, Trends, and Forecast, 2012 - 2018

Renewable chemicals are used for enhancing the use of renewable resources rather than fossil fuels. Renewable chemicals include all the chemicals which are produced from renewable feedstock such as microorganisms, biomass (plant, animal, and marine), and agricultural raw materials. Strict government regulations, environmental concerns and awareness among people are enhancing the use of bio-based products produced from biomass sources, which in turn is expanding the market for renewable chemicals. The renewable chemicals market is expanding primarily due to the strict...
Hand Hygiene Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2014 - 2020
By - Transparency Market Research
Hand hygiene is the act of keeping one's hands clean with water, soap, or other related substance to remove soil, dirt and microorganisms. There are high importance of hand hygiene for health of individual and community. It is relevant in all establishments such as home, workplace and schools however the significance of hand hygiene is far above the ground in hospitals or other healthcare related setup. Hand washing helps to prevent many airborne diseases such as measles, influenza, tuberculosis and chickenpox. At the same time high protection against diseases transmitted...
