China lacks of cobalt ore resources, with the total proven reserves of cobalt approximating 80,000 tons, accounting for just 1% of global total, and the vast majority of proven resources are associated ore, whereas independent mineralized cobalt ore occupies only 4.7 % of the reserves in China. Known cobalt ores in China are mainly distributed in Gansu province which makes up 30.5% of China's cobalt reserves. China is a big consumer of cobalt, which is primarily utilized in downstream sectors to produce battery, hard alloy, magnetic materials and other products. In 2012, cobalt used in batteries takes up 67% of total consumption of cobalt in China, up 4 percentage points from a year earlier.

The "Global and China Cobalt Industry Report, 2013-2016" focuses on the analysis of operating conditions and cobalt business development of 4 global and 12 Chinese companies based on the analysis of global and China’s cobalt mineral resources, policies, market supply and demand, price and competitive pattern.

Teleradiology Market (X-ray, Ultrasound, CT, MRI and Nuclear Imaging) - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 – 2019: http://www.marketresearchreports.biz/analysis-details/teleradiology-technology-market-global-industry-analysis-size-share-growth-trends-and-forecast-2012-2018

Teleradiology refers to the electronic transmission of radiological images from one location to another in a digital format via internet technology. Image transfer is carried out from the primary acquisition site (sender’s end) to a secondary location (receiver’s end) for the purpose of either official diagnosis or consultation. Consistent developments in digital imaging technology coupled with fewer radiologists across the globe favor the growth and acceptance of teleradiology technologies and services. Also, in addition, increasing acceptance of internet technology and social media platforms will further augment the diffusion of teleradiology practices worldwide. Continuous upgradation of Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS) and Radiology Information Systems (RIS), has enhanced the overall teleradiology process (right from image capture, storage, processing and reporting).

This report encompasses a detailed study of various imaging modalities such as X-ray, ultrasound, Computed Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and nuclear imaging. X-ray teleradiology promises lucrative business opportunities owing to its increased awareness, increasing digitalization that aids in enhancing the teleradiology process and low costs as compared to other modalities. Ultrasound is one of the typical imaging technologies, most popular in diagnosing women’s ailments and is employed majorly to visualize and track development stages of the fetus during pregnancy. Ultrasound imaging technology is more advantageous than x-rays and MRI due to its minimal invasive nature coupled with lower exposure to radiation. Diffusion of CT scan imaging technology is increasing as it enables detailed visualization and diagnosis of abnormalities of the chest, abdomen, liver, pancreas and others. With the increasing number of healthcare institutions equipped with CT scanners, the feasibility and accessibility to radiologic interpretation is also increasing. MRI imaging technology involves high costs of equipment, and small to medium healthcare institutions cannot afford the installation and maintenance of MRI equipments. Owing to these factors, MRI teleradiology is still in its infancy stages. Similarly, the acceptance of nuclear imaging technology is still at a nascent stage due to high costs and lack of technical expertise. However, with the increasing government funding towards development of nuclear imaging technologies, there is a scope for increased acceptance of nuclear imaging teleradiology.

China SCR Denitration Catalyst Industry Report, 2013 – 2016: http://www.marketresearchreports.biz/analysis-details/china-scr-denitration-catalyst-industry-report-2013-2016

With the rapid development of China's economy and the escalation of industrialization level, the air pollution is getting worse. Nitrogen oxide emissions in China grew to 23.378 million tons in 2012, surpassing the United States to be the world's largest emitter of nitrogen oxide. Following desulfurization, flue gas denitration has become another priority for China.

Flue gas denitration policies are oriented for coal-fired power plants. By the end of 2012, China's power installed capacity had hit 1.14 billion kilowatts, 820 million kilowatts or 72% of which belonged to thermal power installed capacity. Thermal power generation consumes 1.6 billion tons of coal annually, which creates 9.95 million tons of nitrogen oxide, accounting for 43% of the total emissions of nitrogen oxide. In view of this, the government has forced the existing thermal power plants and the ones under construction to install denitration facilities.

In the mainstream denitration technology -- SCR Denitration, the crucial catalyst costs 40% of the entire cost of denitration renovation. By the end of 2012, the cumulative installed denitration capacity had reached 230 million kilowatts, only equivalent to 28% of the thermal power installed capacity. The denitration device gap amounts to 590 million kilowatts. In the next 2-3 years, the peak of denitration engineering construction will emerge, and the demand for SCR denitration catalyst will exceed the supply.

At the end of 2012, China’s SCR denitration catalyst capacity totaled 150,000 m3, whilst the domestic demand was only 97,000 m3. In 2013, the actual capacity of SCR denitration catalyst expanded to 200,000 m3, but the actual demand reached 251,000 m3 thanks to the denitration construction peak.
