 New technologies continuously emerge that change the nature of work and human lifestyles in dramatic ways. We see Augmented Reality (AR), Wearable Technology, and more specifically Body Area Networks (BAN) as particularly life-changing solutions to many human problems. As with many new innovations, some of these are problems we do not even realize we have at present. 
   
 In 2014, approximately 864 million mobile phones will be AR-ready, and in excess of 100 million vehicles will come equipped with AR technologies of various types. We believe that there is enormous potential for AR applications in many fields including education, healthcare, industrial applications, and the automotive industry. 
   
 We see several factors converging to facilitate wearable technology...

Nanofibers Technologies Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth And Forecast, 2012 - 2018
By - Transparency Market Research
Description Nanofibers Technologies Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth Nanofibers belong to the market of nanotechnology. They are fibers with diameters less than 100 nanometers. Most nanofibers are produced by electrospinning which is the most conventional method of production. Spinning biocomponent fiber is another emerging technique of nanofiber production. Some other nanofiber production methods include melt spinning, template synthesis, electroblowing, self-assembly, and forcespinning.  Most often the material used in nanofibers production...
Nuclear Imaging Market - Global Industry Size, Market Share, Trends, Analysis And Forecasts 2012-2018
By - Transparency Market Research
Nuclear imaging process produces images by sensing radiation coming from different parts of the body after it is exposed to radioactive tracer material. The images produced can be recorded on computer or film. An expert physician studies these nuclear images and gives a diagnosis.  The radioactive tracers used in nuclear medicine are usually injected into a vein. However in some cases they may also be administered orally. Since these tracers are not dyes or drugs, and the amount of radiation a patient receives in a nuclear medicine imagining scan is very low, hence...
Hard Surface Flooring Market - Global Industry Size, Market Share, Trends, Analysis, And Forecasts 2012 - 2018
By - Transparency Market Research
Demand for hard surface flooring is expected to witness significant growth in the coming years as a result of the rebound in housing completions, residential improvements, and repair expenditures. The hard surface flooring market is benefiting from the recovery after recession in flooring remodeling and advancements in building construction spending. The residential market driven by the revolution in housing industry is one of the major factors driving this market. Gains of this market will also be supported by preference for hard surface floorings over carpets and rugs as this type...
