 Wearable technology mainly concerns devices and apparel/textiles. Glasses, jewellery, headgear, belts, armwear, wristwear, legwear, footwear, skin patches, exoskeletons and e-textiles are involved and the device business is already large. As the wearable electronics business powers from over $14 billion in 2014 to over $70 billion in 2024, the dominant sector will remain the healthcare sector which merges medical, fitness and wellness. It has the largest number of big names such as Apple, Accenture, Adidas, Fujitsu, Nike, Philips, Reebock, Samsung, SAP and Roche behind the most promising new developments. 
   
 By the end of the coming decade, advanced informatics as wearable electronics will match that healthcare market, with Google Glass and the best e-wristbands being among the...

Bio-based & Low-VOC Paints Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 - 2019
By - Transparency Market Research
VOCs (volatile organic compounds) are substances such as formaldehyde which are used in paints to allow them to dry faster. These are highly toxic to humans and high levels of VOC in paints results in the release of toxic VOC fumes for a long period of time. Low VOC paints use water as a solvent instead of petroleum-based materials. Bio-based paints use raw materials derived from natural sources such as plants and natural minerals which include plant oils, plant dyes, essential oils, clay, beeswax, mineral dyes, and talcum among others. Bio-based and low-VOC paints embed low VOC...
Waterborne Adhesives Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends And Forecast, 2014 - 2020
By - Transparency Market Research
Waterborne adhesive are manufactured from natural polymers and soluble synthetic polymers. Natural polymers include starch, dextrins, casein, proteins, bones and hides. Soluble synthetic polymers include cellulose ethers, methyl cellulose, polyvinyl alcohol, polyvinylpyrrolidone and carboxy methylcellulose. These adhesives are supplied as formulated dry powders or as solution that are mixed with water just prior to application. The strength is attained when water is either evaporated or absorbed by substrate. As the polymers used in the waterborne adhesives are soluble they offer limited...
