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...

Proppants Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2012 - 2018
By - Transparency Market Research
Hydraulic fracturing is the process of generating fractures in a rock solid surface using pressurized fracture fluids, and proppants keep this fracture open while drilling for oil. This process is crucial in the extraction of liquids and gas, which cannot be easily extracted through normal drilling methods. The extraction is usually conducted in low permeable reservoirs of oil and natural gas. A proppant is one of the integral fluids after water that helps in the process of fracturing and makes it easier to extract oil and natural gas from permeable reservoirs. The market is...
