Environmental Health & Safety Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Trends, Analysis, Growth And Forecast, 2013 - 2019
By - Transparency Market Research
Environmental, Health, and Safety guidelines (EHS) are used by companies which believe in having safe working environments for their employees. EHS consist of Occupational Health & Safety, Environmental Regulations (including Air, Water, and Waste management), and Community Health & Safety. These guidelines were first established in 1985 by the chemical industry in response to two major disasters at Seveso, Italy and Bhopal, India.  The chief driver for the EHS industry is the accentuated need for work-related safety in the wake of several hazardous incidents such as...

Enzymes Market - Global Industry Size, Market Share, Trends, Analysis And Forecasts, 2012 - 2018
By - Transparency Market Research
An enzyme is a protein molecule that is a biological catalyst with three characteristics - firstly, to increase the rate of a reaction, secondly to act specifically with only one reactant (called a substrate) to produce products and the third and the most remarkable characteristic is that enzymes are regulated from a state of low activity to high activity and vice versa. Being specific in nature, enzymes are required to operate under certain substrate concentrations, chemical environment and temperatures. The global market for enzymes will reach $8.5 billion in 2015....
