 There are a number of technologies that may be deployed that all provide the ability for devices to "discover" one another, although over different distances ranging from centimeters (Near Field Communications), to meters (Bluetooth), to 10s of meters (Wi-Fi). They also all provide the ability for the devices to communicate directly with one another without a centralized network. Some of these use direct communication as their primary mode of communication e.g. NFC or RFID. Others are more traditional networks which provide direct communication ability as an adjunct to their primary network functions e.g. LTE-Direct or Wi-Fi Direct. 
   
 Most of the short-term drivers for proximity-based services will be mobile advertising and social networking, especially friend-finder...

Capnography Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 - 2019
By - Transparency Market Research
Capnography is the measurement of exhaled carbon dioxide concentration in the breath of a patient. It plays an important role in identifying respiratory and basic circulatory distress and impairment by enabling information about CO2 production, perfusion, alveolar ventilation and respiratory pattern. It is based on the principle of carbon dioxide’s ability to absorb infra-red radiation. Due to its rapid assessment ability and accuracy, capnography has become an indispensable part of operating room, emergency room, intensive care unit and delivery room in most hospitals...
Industrial Solvents Market - Global Industry Analysis, Market Size, Share, Trends, Analysis, Growth, and Forecast, 2012 - 2018

A solvent is a substance which when dissolved with a solute forms a solution. Usually, solvents are liquids but they can also be in the form of solids and gases. They are used for various purposes such as in dry cleaning, nail enamels, paint thinners, detergents, and perfumes among other applications. Industrial solvents are mainly used in pharmaceuticals and in the paints and coating industry.  The global market for industrial solvents is mature and has reached its saturation point in North America and Europe, so it is expected to grow at an average rate in these...
