 Traditionally, rechargeable batteries have been used as energy dense products and the other devices based on capacitors have been used as power dense products. There are more-power-dense versions of the favourite rechargeable batteries - lithium-ion with 70% or so of the rechargeable battery market in 2023. Unfortunately, power dense rechargeable batteries surrender a lot of energy density. It is therefore helpful that more and more energy dense supercapacitors and variants are becoming available, some even matching lead acid batteries and yet retaining excellent power density. This convergence of properties has led to the widespread combination of the two in parallel, particularly in power applications. Battery/supercapacitor combinations approach the performance of an ideal...

Baking Ingredients Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 - 2019
By - Transparency Market Research
The first evidence of baking dates back to the Babylonian era, and Man has come a long way since then. New products as well as techniques of baking have been developed. However, the main ingredients have remained more or less the same. Baking ingredients include baking powder, baking soda, flour, butter, eggs, yeasts, honey, fruits, nuts, and several flavor and color additives. Baked products come in a wide variety, and the consumption trends depend on the preference of the local population. General bakery products include biscuits, cookies, breads, cakes, pastries, pies, torts,...

Antiseptics and Disinfectants are broadly classified under the class of Anti-infective agents or germicides. Antiseptics are chemical compounds or antimicrobial agent that kills or inhibits the growth of microorganism when applied to a living tissue such as skin. While, disinfectants are the chemical compounds that prevents infection by killing of microorganisms, growing on inert objects such as knife, forceps etc. Antiseptics and Disinfectants form an essential part of infection control practices and aid in prevention of acquired infections. These chemicals are extensively...
Obesity Surgery Devices Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 - 2019
By - Transparency Market Research
Obesity can be defined as a medical condition where excess fat deposition leads to adverse health conditions. Obesity increases the chances of diseases related with heart, certain type of cancer, diabetes and osteoarthritis. Obesity has become one of the serious leading healthcare problems across the globe. It is mainly caused by increased fatty intake, reduced physical exercises and sometimes genetic inheritance. Physical exercise and diet management are the main components for the treatment of obesity whereas anti-obesity drugs are also available for fat reduction. However, sometimes...
