 Piezoelectric energy harvesters generate electricity depending on the amount of force used in compressing or deforming the material, the amount and type of deformation of the material's crystal structure and the speed or frequency of compressions or vibrations to the material. There are more than 200 appropriate materials which need careful selection for the particular application. 
   
 This report is the first to assess the progress, applications, players, challenges and forecasts of piezoelectric energy harvesters. Many companies are developing piezoelectric energy harvesters to power consumer electronics, sensors and much more. Already the huge success for this type of energy harvester is in creating the electrical arcs in cigarette lighters, but the future for this...

Real Time Location System (RTLS) Market - Global Industry Size, Share, Trends, Analysis And Forecasts 2012 - 2018
By - Transparency Market Research
Real time location systems allow a user to identify and track the location of objects in real time by attaching a simple tag or badge to the object. The user can receive the signal from this badge to track the exact position of the object. RTLS integrates with a system that provides passive or active information of location. Real time systems help companies to arrange their assets effectively. This machinery is specially used in various warehouses or logistics companies to track the exact position of automobiles. In 2011, the RTLS market was reported to be about USD 256...
Pediatric Vaccines Market - Global Industry Analysis, Market Size, Market Share And Forecasts, 2012 - 2018
