Seismic Survey Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Trends, Analysis, Growth and Forecast 2014 - 2020
By - Transparency Market Research
Increasing exploration activities owing to the efforts of oil and gas companies to locate new oil and gas reserves is expected to drive the global seismic survey market during the forecast period. Oil and gas companies use seismic surveys to map and interpret potential petroleum reserves.  Petroleum geologists and geophysicists estimate the size and location of the underground oil and gas reserves. Seismic survey is the primary tool of exploration companies. A seismic survey is conducted by creating a shock wave on the surface of the ground along a predetermined path using an...
Thin Film Photovoltaics Market - Global Industry Size, Market Share, Trends, Analysis And Forecasts 2012 - 2018
By - Transparency Market Research
Thin film photovoltaics are solar cells manufactured by placing one or more thin layers of photovoltaic material on a substrate. The thickness of such a layer varies widely ranging from few nanometers to a few micrometers. There are two leading manufactured solar photovoltaic (PV) technologies in commercial use today; crystalline silicon PV and thin-film PV.  There are various ways to manufacture a photovoltaic cell depending on which it is classified as follows : Amorphous silicon and other thin film silicon Cadmium telluride Copper indium gallium...
Offshore Air Handling Units - Global Industry Analysis, Market size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2014 - 2020
By - Transparency Market Research
An air handler, or air handling unit (often abbreviated to AHU), is a device used to regulate and circulate air as part of a heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC) system. An air handler is usually a large metal box containing a blower, heating or cooling elements, filter racks or chambers, sound attenuators, and dampers. Air handlers usually connect to a ductwork ventilation system that distributes the conditioned air through the offshore unit and returns it to the AHU. Sometimes AHUs discharge (supply) and admit (return) air directly to and from the space served...
