Sodium Chlorite is a white and odorless powder that is used to produce chlorine dioxide. This chlorine dioxide mainly finds application in textiles, bleaching, and pulp along with water purification. One of the main property of chlorine dioxide is its destruction capability of specific pathogenic bacteria while at the same time being useful for intestinal bacteria.
Enzymes are protein molecules which are produced by all living creatures which acts as a catalyst increasing the pace of chemical reactions quickly and efficiently without changing their own chemical structure. These protein molecules when used for processing and manufacturing in industries, is termed as industrial enzymes.
Immersion oil is commonly referred to as pellucid oils having specific optional and viscosity features suitable for microscopy. Refractive index of immersion oil is closer as compared to that of glass and does not refract the light focused on to the item being examined. Hence, light beam is completely focused on to the object which is examined opposed to the beams of light scattering through air.
Defoamers, also known as antifoaming agents are chemicals that obstructs foam to develop during various industrial processes. They possess surface active properties and do not dissolve in a foaming medium. Key characteristic of a defoamer is that they have low viscosity, spreads quickly in a foaming surface and show low affinity for air-liquid surfaces.
Growing power and cement industries is the major factor driving the market growth. However, rising demand for petcoke from steel and aluminum industries is another factor propelling the market demand over the forecast period. The other vital advantage that pet coke carries is its high calorific value as compared to natural gas and coal. It is regarded as being more cost competitive than natural gas and coal. Approval by regulatory agencies such as EPA and CRS to use petcoke in various industrial applications is projected to drive the market over the coming years due to its non-toxic nature.
Organic acids market is projected to reach US$ 28.56 Bn by 2026 with 6.2% CAGR during the forecast period from 2018 to 2026. In 2017, Asia Pacific held the largest value and volume share in the global organic acids market and is projected to be the fastest growing region between 2018 and 2026.
Automotive coatings are employed to coat automobile surfaces and demonstrate the innovative technologies which are proficient in manufacturing sturdy surfaces, maximizing overall vehicle efficiency while meeting environmental regulations. Automotive OEM coatings improve the overall appearance and durability of a vehicle and helps in protecting it from extreme temperatures, UV radiation and foreign particles.
Airlaid Papers are categorized as “nonwoven fabric” which resemble material same as textile and is made from pulp (fluff). These are very soft, bulky and porous with greater absorption capacity than normal tissues papers. Some common applications of air laid papers are feminine hygiene, disposable diapers, industrial wipes, napkins and personal care products such as wet wipes among others.
Aerospace coating is an excellent performing coating material which resists temperature fluctuation, tackles air instability or imbalance in air pressure, and provides protection from chemical attacks such as from cleaning chemicals, fuel and hydraulic fluid. It also provides protection from corrosion or humid conditions.
Isostearic acid consumption has gradually increased in the market due to increasing automotive and industrial activities driving demand for it. On the basis of applications, global isostearic acid market is segmented into Personal Care, Chemical Esters, Lubricant & Greases and others. Lubricant & Greases market accounted for larger share of global isostearic acid market.
Kinesiology tapes are elastic cotton strips that are utilized to treat sports injuries and other disease-related physical disorders. These tapes have elasticity and thickness identical to human skin and aid in the treatment of a vast range of sports injuries, musculoskeletal injuries and other inflammatory disorders such as Achilles tendonitis. Kinesiology tapes are preferred by healthcare practitioners as well as by athletes to treat musculoskeletal injuries. These tapes are available in different forms in the market and further research in this field has resulted in innovative products, which reduce the application time.
Hypothyroidism as a syndrome was first recognized in the 1870s and its treatment with animal extracted thyroid was achieved in 1890s. Since 1927, synthetic thyroid hormone replacement therapy has been available, and in the recent years, there has been a minor shift in treatment away from levothyroxine.
The global market for latex caulk was valued at US$ 285.3 Mn in 2017 and expected to reach US$ 424.6 Mn by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 4.6% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2026. Asia Pacific accounted for the dominant share in 2017 and expected to retain its position throughout the forecast period.
