Carbon Nanotubes: Technologies and Global Markets
The primary objective of this report is threefold:
- Assess the current state-of-the-art in Carbon Nanotubes (CNTs) production and technical applications understanding
- Identify the current players seeking to exploit their unique properties
- Evaluate actual or impending markets in terms of the technical readiness of CNTs and the projected market revenues.
Drug-device Combinations: The Global Market
This report discusses key markets for drug device combination products. It provides descriptions of technologies and products, a review of the status of R&D initiatives and a forecast of the market through 2014. Company profiles and a patent analysis are provided as well. Example product categories that are covered include drug-eluting stents (DES), drug-eluting beads (DEB), antimicrobial catheters, antibiotic-loaded bone cements, glass ionomer cements, bone graft substitutes, antibacterial releasing dental restorative materials, biologic wound care products such as collagen-based dressings as therapeutic agents for wound healing, drug device combination products for ocular applications, photodynamic therapy, and other important niches.

Antennas for Systems and Devices: Technologies and Global Markets
This report tries to make sense of the exceptionally fragmented antenna market. Prima facie, it would not be wrong to assume that the antenna market should display a level of homogeneity found in the markets of other wireless communication components such as basebands, modems, and radio frequency (RF) front ends. Such an expectation is way off the mark. What dictates the dynamics of antenna markets is the end application. It is not uncommon to notice entire antenna supply chains built closely around the interest of end-application users, rather than being heavily focused on interactions with other value adders in the telecommunications domains.
For this reason, this report considers the end-application sector as the primary classification criterion. To render the maximum level of granularity to the study, the report has identified 10 end-application categories, which are further subdivided into antenna technologies, antenna materials, and geographical regions.
On the whole, BCC Research forecasts that the future of antennas will continue to be driven by that of its end applications. However, commonalities as mentioned above will lead to the adoption of smarter technologies in antenna synthesis and operations. The market is thus likely to witness antennas that are lighter, smaller, power efficient and, most importantly, intelligent.
