Synthetic Paper Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2012 - 2018
By - Transparency Market Research
Synthetic paper is manufactured by using synthetic resins which are derived from petroleum products. It has characteristics similar to regular paper made from wood pulp but in appearance it looks like plastic films. Mostly, it is in opaque or white color which has printing and processing capabilities. Usually, synthetic paper is made up of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) or biaxially oriented polypropylene (BOPP) and few amounts of polystyrene and polyvinyl chloride (PVC). These materials are used for giving better printability and a matt surface. HDPE is widely used and PP is...

Orthopedic Bone Cement and Casting Materials Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 - 2019
By - Transparency Market Research
Bone cement have been used widely in supporting artificial joints for more than half a century. Bone cement provides elasticity by filling the space between prosthesis and the bone. The necessity of bone cement is supported by the fact that the human hip is acted on 10-12 times by the body weight and therefore the forces acting on hips should be absorbed by the bone cement to ensure safety of artificial implants. An orthopedic cast is a shell made from plaster, encasing a limb to hold a broken bone in place until total recovery is made. It immobilizes the fractured bone in...
