http://www.reportlinker.com/p01957791/Worldwide-Medical-Ceramics-Markets-2013.html#utm_source=prnewswire&utm_medium=pr&utm_campaign=Ceramic_Manufacturing

SUMMARY

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.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world.
