Product Synopsis

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... Read More

  • Concentrated Photovoltaic (PV) and Solar Photovoltaic Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 - 2019

    By - Transparency

    Solar photovoltaic is a technology that converts solar energy into useful energy forms by absorbing solar photon (particles of light that operate as individual units of energy). Photovoltaic cell is also known as solar cell. Solar cell is an electrical device that translates light energy into electric energy or electricity using photovoltaic effect. Solar cell is a type of photoelectric cell which on exposure to light can produce and support an electric current without any external voltage source. However, it requires an external load for power consumption. Solar PV modules...

  • Lip Cancer Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends And Forecast, 2014 - 2020

    By - Transparency

    Lip cancer is a type of oral cancer that begins in the squamous cells, lining the lips and the oral cavity. Symptoms of lip cancer include soreness, lumps or pale colored ulcers in the mouth that are usually painless at first but may become painful with disease progression. On early diagnosis, this type of cancer can be cured either by surgery and/or radiation therapy. In cases of advanced stages, chemotherapy and targeted therapies may also be used. Emergency treatment is recommended in cases where cancer has spread and is known to interfere with the function of a vital organ. Factors...
