Global Gasification Market 2015-2019

Gasification is a thermochemical process that converts hydrocarbons such as coal, petroleum, petcoke, natural gas, and biomass into simple molecules, primarily resulting in a mixture called syngas (carbon monoxide and hydrogen) by means of partial oxidation with air, oxygen, or steam. The key advantage of gasification is its ability to perform in various designs having a reduced environmental footprint as compared to combustion technologies. There are several gasifier designs and operating conditions. The most vital component of the gasification process is the gasifier, a vessel in which the feedstock reacts with air or oxygen at high temperatures. The carbon monoxide and hydrogen ratio depends on the hydrogen and carbon content of the feedstock and the type of gasifier. TechNavio's ana......

Transformer Market in India 2015-2019

A transformer is a device that transfers electrical energy from one circuit to another circuit, operating on the principle of electromagnetic induction. A basic transformer consists of a core that creates a path for magnetic flux, a primary coil that receives current from an AC source, a secondary coil that receives current from the primary winding and transfers it to the load, and finally, an enclosure that protects the transformers from dirt, moisture, and other damage. Transformers are basically of two types: power and distribution transformers. Power transformers are used for stepping up or stepping down the electric current voltage from generators. Distribution transformers are used for changing electric current voltage at various transmission stations and sub-stations. TechNavio's......

Solar PV Market in Asia 2015-2019

PV is a method of generating electricity through the conversion of solar radiation using semiconductors that exhibit the PV effect. PV power generation uses solar panels composed of several solar cells containing a PV material. Materials presently used for PV include mono-c-Si, poly-c-Si, a-Si, CdTe, and copper indium gallium selenide/sulfide. The conventional way of power generation through fossil fuels is continuously depleting and also causes environmental damage. Therefore, eco-friendly renewable methods of power generation such as PV have become popular over the last decade. PV power is generated by the mono-c-Si method, which is the most efficient and least expensive approach. PV power is a good option because its source, solar energy, is free, and even the maintenance cost is neglig......

Global Hydraulic Fracturing Market 2015-2019

Hydraulic fracturing or hydraulic fracking is a technique of well stimulation in which a fluid at a high pressure (typically water mixed with sand and chemicals) is injected into an oil well to create minor fractures in the deep rock foundations to allow natural gas, petroleum, and brine to move toward the well from deep reserves. The technique of fracturing is commonly applied to wells for shale gas and oil recovery. Such stimulation is usually carried out once during the productive life of the well and helps in the extraction of fluids (gas and oil), thereby increasing the productivity of the well. The hydraulic fracturing technique used as field production declines with time. TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global Hydraulic Fracturing market to grow at a CAGR of 12.5 percent over t......
