 This report identifies the opportunities for encapsulation and substrate materials and systems in the emerging building-integrated PV (BIPV) market.  NanoMarkets believes that the BIPV sector will be the fastest growing part of the solar industry in the next decade, but that demand patterns for encapsulation and substrate materials from this sector will be different from the traditional PV industry. 
   
 Even though glass will be the most widely used material for both encapsulation and substrates in the BIPV sector, special coatings may be required as the result of the use of novel absorber materials in BIPV.  In addition, NanoMarkets believes that in the emerging BIPV market there will be a considerable trend toward flexible PV because of its ability to offer...

Fluorspar Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends And Forecast, 2013 - 2019
By - Transparency Market Research
Fluorspar is the commercial name for the mineral fluorite (calcium fluoride CaF2). Commercially fluorspar is graded according to quality and attributes into acid grade, ceramic grade and metallurgical grade. It generally develops well formed cubic crystals exhibiting a wide range of colors. The end use is determined by the grade of the fluorspar. Almost two thirds of the world’s production of fluorspar is used for the manufacturing of hydrofluoric acid (HF). Hydrofluoric acid is used as a feedstock for the manufacturing of fluorine containing compounds like fluoropolymers and...
Yield Monitoring Devices and Services Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2014 - 2020
By - Transparency Market Research
Yield monitoring refers to monitoring several factors such as pesticides, effect of weather, soil properties, and fertilizers required for crop (yield) production. Yield monitoring is a part of precise agriculture which is a farming management concept for measuring, observing and responding to variations in the land and subsequently the yield/harvest. In order to implement proper management of crops that are sensitive to the location (climate and soil composition) and require precise farming, the farmers deploy yield monitoring techniques. Yield monitoring devices and services...
