2012 Instrumentation and Sensors Research Review
- Analyses of each bulk acoustic wave technology type, its current market status, examines its impact on future markets and technologies play in wireless communication and industrial, military and safety monitoring as well as instrumentation.
- Information about technological processes that have been made toward bridging the terahertz gap and assessing the commercial potential of THz radiation devices over the next five to 10 years.
- Information about pharmacy automation markets by inpatient and outpatient pharmacy settings, and by product type. Each segment is further extrapolated to provide detailed information of current and emerging products, current market estimates and market forecasts, and competitive analyses.
Instruments and sensors are the eyes, ears and backbone of technology industries. In this review we focus on three techniques and two applications—but truthfully all our reports have elements that are based on progress made in this research category. In particular, Terahertz technology has become portable enough to potentially be a game changer for a broad spectrum of markets.
The modern luxury car has upwards of 100 sensors and electronic service modules, but this will likely increase seem old fashioned if the “driverless car” becomes a reality.
This 2012 Instrumentation and Sensors Research Review provides a sampling of the type of quantitative market information, analysis and guidance that has been aiding business decision making since BCC was founded in 1971.
