Worldwide Medical Ceramics Markets: 2013

NEW YORK, Jan. 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Worldwide Medical Ceramics Markets: 2013


NanoMarkets believes that medical ceramics represents a major opportunity in the medical materials market over the next few years. They have already established themselves in orthopedic and dental implants; providing a multitude of patients with problem free bone and tooth replacements. Increasingly, prostheses for hip replacement consist of metal ceramic composites. NanoMarkets also believes that bioceramics and their metal composites have a great potential to heal long segmental bone defects and that in the future, orthopedic implants will rely on scaffold-guided bone tissue.
The primary goal of this report is to identify the market opportunities in the medical ceramics sector over the next eight years. This report not only includes a granular forecast and analysis of the more established medical ceramics markets, but also gives a comprehensive analysis of medical nano-ceramics especially in terms of enhancing the healing properties of implantable materials.
This report discusses the commercial aspects of all the current trends in medical ceramics and the numerous applications in which they can be used. The report also profiles key suppliers and analyzes the complete supply chain for medical ceramics. For the firms covered we discuss their strategies and needs along with their strengths and weaknesses.

Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound...
With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...
