The WSN business is set to become a multibillion dollar activity but only if there is major progress with standards and technology. This techno-marketing report scopes over 140 manufacturers and developers and looks closely at the impediments to rollout and how to overcome them. For example, today's power sources often stand in way of the desired 20 year life so the report looks closely at how energy harvesting can help and profiles 40 relevant power source manufacturers. Ten year WSN forecasts are made based on the very latest information.   Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) - self organising, self healing networks of small "nodes" - have huge potential across industrial, military and many other sectors. While appreciable sales have new been established, major progress depends...

Proton Therapy Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends And Forecast, 2013 - 2019
By - Transparency Market Research
Proton therapy is an advanced form of radiation therapy especially for cancer patients with significant advantages over conventional radiation therapy in terms of efficacy and unwanted side effects. In proton therapy a beam of protons is irradiated to diseased tissue with the help of a particle accelerator. These protons cause damage to targeted cells by interfering with their genetic functions. Protons, due to their large mass do not scatter side and are more precisely localized to targeted tissue allowing significantly less damage to adjacent cells.  According to The...
