 Transparent Conductors in Thin Film and Organic Photovoltaics – 2012” is the latest report from NanoMarkets in our ongoing coverage of materials and markets in the photovoltaics sector. In this report, NanoMarkets examines the changing opportunities for different kinds of transparent conductors in the TFPV and organic PV industry.  This report considers how transparent conductors will find markets and help create value for suppliers of leading edge PV technologies under the changed circumstances that PV faces today in which government subsidies are under threat and there are huge pressures to reduce TFPV costs to make it competitive with c-Si PV and with other sources of energy in general.  Taking into account the new dynamics of the TFPV and OPV industry, this report...

Parking Sensors Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 - 2019
By - Transparency Market Research
Parking a vehicle in the tight urban spaces can be quite problematic at times specially in overcrowded areas. In such situation, parking sensor assist in parking vehicle safely. Parking sensors are type of proximity sensors that are able to identify presence of nearby object without any physical contact. Parking sensors for street vehicles alert the car driver to the obstructions while parking the vehicle. Parking sensors operate under the temperature range of -30 degree Celsius to +80 degree Celsius. However, the functioning and accuracy of these sensors can be affected by heavy snowfall...
