 Graphene markets will grow from around $20 million in 2014 to more than $390 million in 2024 at the material level. The market will be split across many application sectors; each attracting a different type of graphene manufactured using different means. The market today remains dominated by research interest but the composition will change as other sectors such as energy storage and composites grow. The value chain will also transform as companies will move up the chain to offer intermediary products, capturing more value and cutting the time to market and uncertainty for end users. 
 Interest in graphene remains strong. Companies on the market multiply every year and academic investment continues to pour in. For example, the European Union has committed 1 billion Euros over...

Radiation Oncology Market - Global Industry Analysis, Market Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 - 2019
By - Transparency Market Research
Radiation oncology, also known as radiation therapy, is the medical use of ionizing radiation as a part of cancer treatment to control or kill malignant cells. It is sometimes abbreviated to XRT or DXT. Radiation therapy is useful in treating cancer localized in one area of the body and also in preventing resurgence of tumor after the removal of primary malignant cells. The precise treatment (curative, adjuvant, neoadjuvant) is based on a number of factors such as the patient’s health, the type of tumor, location of the tumor, and the stage of the tumor. Radiation oncology also...
Cytomegalovirus (CMV) Diagnostics Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends And Forecast, 2014 - 2020
By - Transparency Market Research
Cytomegalovirus belongs to the herpesviridae family and is a double-stranded DNA virus. This virus mainly causes asymptomatic infections or sometimes causes mild flu like symptoms; and later remains latent throughout life, which may reactivate. Thus, this virus can remain as a lifelong companion for some individuals and can be a silent killer for the others. Cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection is characterized by the development of such antibodies, which develop due to the infection of the virus that stays in an individual’s body throughout his life.  CMV diagnostics become...
