Significant Shift from Conventional Mechanical to Electrical System Boosts Drive Belt Market

Drive Belts are an essential part of an automobile, as they increase engine efficiency. Besides, it tasks in driving several peripherals in a car engine including water pump, power steering pump etc. it reduces the friction in the engine, and ensure better performance. However, factor like heat accumulation or continuous frictional force these drive belts may deteriorate with time. The major market trend that’s driving the drive belt segment in recent years is the gradual shift from the conventional mechanical system to the cutting – edge electrical systems. This has now enabled diagnostic capabilities as well as automation even with remote access. 

Industry experts are of the faith that completely automated assembly lines backed by artificial intelligence would boost the manufacturing of such drive belts. The key end-user sectors, including mining, agriculture etc. has also contributed to the growth of this market. Developing nations like Asia –Pacific and LAMEA are experiencing huge demand of these belts. Besides this, customers are who are now demanding original, yet cost effective product have something to be happy about as companies in these regions have started using advance machineries. There are two type of drive belts available in the market; flat belt and v belt. Out of the two the v belt has established a strong foothold and the market is expected to grow further. 

Furthermore, when it comes to periodic replacement and repair car owners today prefer v belt over the flat ones. Moreover, the v belts have a great future especially in the aged –car sector. Here, these belt drive the alternators as well as water pumps, which offer low – output. These belt are manufactured from durable rubber and are subjected to rigorous testing procedures to make sure the end –customer gets a great quality product. Eyeing the increasing market of drive belts Big Market Research has added a report titled “Global Drive Belt Industry 2015 Deep Market Research Report.” 

As per the report the drive belt market would observe great sales in regions such as China, Japan, Europe and United States. The market research report also list key market players like Gates, ContiTech AG, Goodyear, Dunlop, Mitsuboshi, Zijingang Rubber Belt, Veco Transmission, Megadyne, BEHA, Optibelt, Federal Mogul, Yuelong Rubber and more. Major market drivers, restraints and opportunities of the drive belt market are also analyzed in the report to help business owners make smarter business decisions, avoid business risks and position their product successfully.

Chitosan Gel is a cost-effective gel and has wide range of pharmaceutical applications

Chitosan is natural biodegradable polymer produced by deacetylation of chitin. It is a non-toxic, biodegradable and biocompatible natural polymer very abundantly natural polymer found in nature. It is considered as natural polymer since it is derived from naturally occurring sources, such as exoskeleton of insects, crustacean including crabs, shrinps, prawns, lobsters and cell walls of fungi such as aspergillus. The above factor has enabled the material chitosan to be used for a host of applications. However, the material chitosan suffers from setback since chitosan is soluble in acidic solutions, affecting the sorption efficiency and thereby restricting its chemical stability. So scientists have developed methods for preparing chitosan in gel form, the prominent of them being the dissolution of chitosan in acetic acid followed by filtering and refinement to obtain various sizes of chitosan gel. Moreover, aerogel conditioning of the chitosan enables preparation of porous solids with excellent specific surface.  Drying with supercritical CO2 further enables to preserve the volume of the spheres of gel.

Chitosan gels have widespread applications for protein/enzyme separation and purification in food and pharmaceutical industry. One of the recent applications of chitosan gel by a major pharmaceutical is the development of injectable and bio-fragmentable nasal packing stent. The stent is designed to reduce bleeding after operation and check adhesions in nasal structures used for patients patients who undergo endoscopic sinus surgery, which prove helpful for patients and surgeons alike. It promotes wound healing and possesses antibacterial property. Compared to other gels, chitosan is cost effective and can be easily regenerated. Many major pharm companies are developing of innovative applications of chitosan gels. 

There are many reports in the market which tracks the recent developments along with offering an insight into the market dynamics of chitosan gel industry. Recently, Big Market Research has added a report titled “Global Chitosan Gel Industry 2015 Deep Market Research Report”, which offers a detailed analysis of the key drivers and restraints, detailed segmentation and forecast along with strategies adopted by key market players to gain a foothold in the market.

Digital Radiography is Expected to Transform Dentistry

Digital Radiography is defined as a form of x-ray imaging, wherein digital detectors such as X-ray sensors are used instead of conventional photographic film or CR cassette to generate the digital image, which can then be stored onto a digital medium. The method of digital radiology imaging offers unique benefits over traditional ones owing to its ability to digitally transfer and produce high-resolution images using lesser radiation. The presentation and reproduction of image is very fast since it does away with the chemical processing which is done in traditional methods. After final stage of image generation, they are sent for storage to a digitized archive so that these images can be viewed at any computer workstation. 

Radiographic imaging has formed a cornerstone in diagnosis, effective documentation and proper treatment of patients by dentists. Developments for over a century have indicated that digital radiology is a global trend dramatically driving the rapid adoption of digital technology in dentistry. Digital radiography systems allow dentists and patients to instantly view of images on various devices such as PC, iPad, or operatory TV screen at a much higher resolution compared to other conventional film screens. Digital files can easily be shared with third parties such as insurance companies and since these images can be stored on an external hard drive resulting in enhanced manageability of the images.

Considering the diverse nature of dental practice, dentists and clinicians can chose from a vast range of digital radiography equipment and associated image managing software tools to suit their specific needs. Some of the prominent digital radiography systems include intraoral X-ray sensors, dental cone beam systems, phosphor plate X-ray systems and digital imaging software, amongst many others. The dentistry equipment market has also opened newer options in terms of diagnostics, patient education and treatment planning, which is expected to drive the global digital radiography industry. There are many reports in the market which tracks the market dynamics, recent developments and current and future market trends. Recently, Big Market Research has added a report titled “Global Digital Radiography Industry 2015 Deep Market Research Report”, which offers a comprehensive insight into the key drivers and restraints, dominant market trends, market segmentation and forecast along with market strategies adopted by key market players to grow in the market.
