Covid-19 Impact and Future Scenario For Medical Ceramics - Research, Future Analysis
The global spread of COVID-19 has led to the complete suspension of elective surgeries, especially in the most affected countries. Some regions witnessed a 70% reduction in the number of patients seeking aesthetic treatments from January 2020 onwards. Moreover, several dental events have been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  For instance, KRAKDENT 2020, the largest dental show in Poland and an event that attracts over 15,000 visitors worldwide has been rescheduled. The CEO of Straumann Group announced that the COVID-19 outbreak was expected to reduce sales in the Asia Pacific in FY 2020 by at least USD 31 million. Additionally, DENTSPLY Sirona recently predicted that its sales in the Chinese, South Korean, Taiwanese, and Japanese markets would fall by a cumulative USD 60–70 million in FY 2020.   Medical implants are artificial devices that are used to replace damaged or missing biological parts. Implants help deliver medication, monitor body functions, and provide support to organs and tissues in different applications (such as dental, orthopedic, and cardiovascular).   The medical implants market is driven by the growing healthcare needs of the senior population, advancements in medical technologies, and the rising incidence of chronic diseases, such as osteoarthritis, cardiovascular diseases, neuropathic diseases, and congenital disorders, among others.  The significant growth in the geriatric population is expected to result in an increased demand for joint reconstruction, cardiovascular surgeries, and dental replacement procedures and an increase in the prevalence of hearing loss. These factors are, in turn, expected to support the growth of the hearing, orthopedic, and dental implants market.  For More Information Download PDF Brochure @ https://www.marketsandmarkets.com/pdfdownloadNew.asp?id=237425129 Medical ceramics are key components in the manufacturing of various implantable devices, such as orthopedic implants (artificial hips, knee, shoulder, wrists, fracture fixation, and bone grafts), cardiovascular implants (heart valves, pacemakers, catheters, grafts, and stents), dental implants (enamels, fillings, prosthetics, and orthodontics), and hearing implants (cochlear implants).  Considering the growing demand for implantable devices in different segments (such as cardiovascular, dental, and orthopedics), the uptake of medical ceramics is expected to increase in the coming years.  These products have to be implanted inside the human body; they need to be biocompatible and comply with the ISO biocompatibility testing standards. However, it is difficult to anticipate the biocompatibility till the later stages of clinical trials, making companies and investors apprehensive of investing in this market.  Also, regulatory procedures are complicated, restrictive, and depend on the composition of ceramics and their future applications, making the approval process for medical ceramic products cumbersome, expensive, and time-consuming. These factors are expected to hinder the growth of the medical ceramics market to a certain extent.  The World Economic Forum estimates these emerging economies to account for around one-third of the global healthcare expenditure by 2020. The rising geriatric population in these countries will lead to increased demand for medical facilities and devices, which is likely to propel the growth of the medical ceramics market. Moreover, growth in these markets can primarily be attributed to the low prices of dental treatments in these countries compared to developed economies and their infrastructural development.   Additionally, medical device manufacturers are also setting up their facilities in the Asia Pacific, the Middle East, and Latin America. In recent years, key players such as Baxter International, Becton Dickinson, BIOTRONIK, Hoya Surgical Optics, Life Technologies, Medtronic, Siemens Medical Instruments, and AB SCIEX have set up their manufacturing and RD facilities in Singapore.  The lack of a skilled workforce and proper techniques to repair further highlight the issue of reparability. Medical ceramics have a long lifespan but are not recyclable. Due to the long lifespan and various mechanical and optical properties of medical ceramics, the different composites used in various end-use applications face recyclability and reparability. This is one of the major challenges hampering the growth of the medical ceramics market.  The medical ceramics market in Asia Pacific, particularly in China, Japan, and India, is expected to witness high growth in the coming five years. The medical ceramics market in the APAC is estimated to grow rapidly during the forecast period, considering the development of the region's healthcare sector. The major consumers of medical ceramics in the APAC are China, South Korea, and Japan.

Significant Impact of COVID-19 on PPE Kits in Healthcare Industry
COVID-19 Impact on PPE Kits in Healthcare Industry Personal protective equipment is commonly referred to as "PPE." PPE is a worn equipment which helps to minimize exposure to hazards from the workplace illnesses and injuries. These injuries may result from contact with radiological, physical, chemical, mechanical, electrical, mechanical, or other workplace hazards. PPE includes the items such as safety glasses, gloves and shoes, earplugs or muffs, respirators, or coveralls, hard hats, and full body cover suits. Choosing the right PPE helps to reduce the exposure to hazards and is essential to laboratory safety. SHORTAGE OF PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT ENDANGERING HEALTH WORKERS WORLDWIDE The World Health Organization has warned that extreme and mounting disruption to the worldwide delivery of personal protective equipment (PPE) – resulting from growing demand, panic buying, hoarding, and misuse – is placing lives at chance from the brand new coronavirus and different infectious diseases. Healthcare employees rely upon private shielding systems to shield themselves from being infected. However, shortages are leaving doctors, nurses, and different frontline employees dangerously ill-prepared to take care of COVID-19 sufferers,. Industry and governments have to act speedily to reinforce delivery, ease export regulations, and positioned measures in vicinity to prevent hypothesis and hoarding. “We can’t prevent COVID-19 without defensive medical examiners first” stated WHO Director-General Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus. IMPACT OF COVID-19 ON PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT The current coronavirus disease outbreak (COVID-19) has spread worldwide. All COVID-19-affected countries throughout the world are taking containment measures and doing their utmost to combat the disease in order to prevent it from spreading further and to limit death. In the early discovery of cases, contact tracing, and treatment of patients, the public health workforce and healthcare workers in clinical settings play a critical role. In order to combat any infectious disease in a crisis, healthcare practitioners and public health workers must have access to personal protective equipment (PPE) and utilize it consistently and correctly. As the COVID-19 pandemic spreads across the globe, the demand for personal protective equipment has skyrocketed. Many nations, including India, have experienced a temporary scarcity of PPE due to the pandemic's rapid spread. The absence of personal protective equipment (PPE) has harmed the morale of healthcare workers (HCWs) and other frontline troops fighting the coronavirus epidemic, which has afflicted over 22,000 health workers in 56 nations. Some have succumbed to it in countries all over the world, including India (WHO).. Moreover, an increase in the potentially infectious patients seeking testing and care accelerates the COVID-19 pandemic all over the world. Spread of COVID infection all over the world is generating the demand for PPE kits such has like face masks, gloves, goggles, air-purifying respirators, respirators face shields, and gowns among health care employees. As a result of shortage in all kinds of PPE, developed high demand across the globe. For instance · United Nations Children's Fund plays an important role in the delivery of PPE. The fund shipped more than 653.4 million items of PPE in 140 countries. CONCLUSION The spread of the novel coronavirus has triggered significant market damage across the world. Most businesses have stopped immediately, and the effect of the pandemic has been on all industries. The towns were closed down, and social distancing has become a modern norm. Government along with the private sector can play a vital role in reviving the sector. The government is providing financing assistance for needs arising from COVID-19; the private sector can take care of large investments and expertise required in developing countries. Apart from this, strong engagement with governments and local stakeholders will continue to contribute significantly to the development of the sector. In the starting days of pandemic, drastically boots the demand of personal protective equipment all over the globe. The use of personal protective equipment “specially medical masks” has become more popular in the world and also other PPE such has gloves, face shields, gowns, googles and other items have experienced rise in the demand among essential workers and frontline health care employees. Companies are making the strategic action to increase the supply to meet the demand of personal protective equipment in the market. Government has also introduced many polices and initiatives which would help manufactures to maintain in stable growth in current dynamic situation.
The Importance of Animal Treatment - Research News
The growth of the animal treatment market can be attributed to increasing government initiatives, which ensure maximum preventive healthcare for animals. A majority of the developed economies have norms that impel owners to have pet insurance.  On the basis of animal type, the animal treatment market is segmented into dogs, cats, pigs, poultry, cattle, and horses. The poultry segment will receive maximum veterinary care in the coming years. Earlier, the health of poultry was neglected to a greater extent. Chickens having underlying conditions were discarded without providing any veterinary treatment. However, with various animal cruelty acts in place, the mortality rate in poultry has decreased.   Based on the type of treatment, the animal treatment market is segmented into no medicalization, basic medicalization, and veterinary care. There has been a considerable decline in the percentage of animals receiving no medicalization, due to the rising awareness regarding the availability of reimbursement for veterinary services. As a result, owners have started prioritizing the health of their companion animals.   The number of dogs and cats receiving vaccination and treatment in these countries has increased. This trend is projected to continue until the end of 2024. Furthermore, in the case of livestock, animal welfare authorities have assigned diligent veterinarians for farms to assure maximum preventive healthcare.  For More Information, Download the PDF Brochure @ https://www.marketsandmarkets.com/pdfdownloadNew.asp?id=180479252  Key market players The leading players in the animal treatment market are Zoetis (US), Merck (US), Boehringer Ingelheim (Germany), Elanco (US), Ceva (France), Phibro Animal Health Corporation (US), Abaxis (US), Virbac SA (France), IDEXX Laboratories, Inc.

High Healthcare Expenditure To Drive The Growth Of The Operating Room Management Market
The pandemic has led to a temporary ban on elective surgeries across the globe, which resulted in cancellations of elective surgeries worldwide. According to a report published by researchers of CovidSurg Collaborative, around 28 million surgeries were canceled across the globe during 12 weeks of peak disruption during the COVID-19 pandemic.   To handle the increased surgical volumes, hospitals are increasing OR hours and focusing on better utilization of OR. The COVID-19 will positively impact the ORM software market. It will increase the adoption rate of ORM software as most hospitals will now focus on increasing capacity by using technology to improve efficiency.  The overall cost of healthcare delivery has grown significantly over the last few decades, mainly due to increasing health insurance premiums, the rising demand for quality healthcare services, the rising geriatric population, and the increasing incidence of chronic disorders.  Another important factor attributing to rising healthcare costs is the high dependency on traditional and outdated methods such as paper-based patient records, which leads to an increase in readmission rates, medical errors, and administration costs.  Different governments and healthcare systems worldwide are now focusing on controlling rising healthcare costs by minimizing patient readmissions, medical errors, and administration costs with the effective utilization of various healthcare IT solutions. Operating rooms or ORs account for 40% of the total hospital expenses and constitute ~70% of the total revenue generated.   For More Information Download PDF Brochure @ https://www.marketsandmarkets.com/pdfdownloadNew.asp?id=175407912 The adoption of ORM solutions has been particularly affected by its high installation and maintenance costs. ORM software, when once installed, also requires to be regularly updated as per the user’s requirement and software enhancements, thereby presenting recurring expenditure. Additionally, the maintenance of high-end IT-enabled systems typically costs more than the software itself.  The annual maintenance cost is estimated to be 20-25% of the initial cost of the software licenses. Subsequently, it can be expected that the high costs incurred from the purchase, installation, maintenance, and upgrade of ORM software and solutions may negatively affect their overall adoption among end-users, thus restraining market growth to a certain extent.  Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa (BRICS) are among the fastest-growing economies in the world. According to the World Economic Forum, these emerging economies will account for around one-third of the global healthcare expenditure by 2020. More than half of the world’s population resides in India and China, owing to which these countries are home to a large patient base. The increasing burden of cancer, improvements in healthcare infrastructure, a less-stringent regulatory environment, and growing medical tourism are encouraging players in the operating room management market to increase their presence in emerging countries. Owing to the expansion of the patient population base, the number of hospitals and surgical centers is also expected to increase in emerging countries in the coming years. Also, currently, governments in these countries are undertaking initiatives to expand and modernize their respective healthcare infrastructures.  The number of independent health care providers has been decreasing as most healthcare providers are turning to mergers, acquisitions, and partnerships and are functioning under a health system rather than operating independently. On a 15-year basis, the percentage of hospitals functioning under a health system has increased from approximately 50% to approximately 65%. Today, over 70% of hospitals are operating as part of a health system rather than independently.  Data management communication solutions accounted for the largest share of the operating room management market in 2019 owing to the benefits such as easy sharing of patient status in perioperative care phases, tracking of the schedule compliance, and sharing of the media and information related to cases within different operating rooms or external hospital departments.  The high growth of this segment can primarily be attributed to advantages such as scalable data storage, scalable computing power, machine-learning capabilities, and faster data transfer between organizations of cloud platforms.
How to Find the Right Commercial Cleaning for Your Business
An image is worth more than one thousand words. The image of your business in the locality has a tremendous impact on the number of customers you get. Therefore, it is of utmost importance to give your business the best possible image. What better start than getting it sparkling clean? Keeping a clean commercial building is vital in providing your business with a powerful image. While keeping your commercial building clean is a time-consuming activity, several options are available for busy business owners to continue their focus on business management. Since there are so many options, this article will help you choose the best team of commercial cleaning in Brisbane. What should you consider when selecting a commercial cleaning company? Selecting a commercial cleaning company to take care of the cleaning of your commercial building should by no means be underestimated. Most commercial cleaning companies work with lock-in contracts that protect them from you stopping their services, no matter how bad their quality can be! Therefore, make sure to search for the different options in your area and look at their ratings, reputation, quality of service, staff training, and responsiveness. In this article, you will learn how to analyse these aspects of the business and other primary factors to consider. 1) Thoroughness. A thorough cleaning is essential if you want to bring the image of your business to the next level. If a commercial cleaning company does the cleaning just on the surface or where the eyes can see, it might seem ok at first, but as soon as you move a piece of furniture or adjust an office, the lack of proper cleaning will be evident. Also, nowadays is more important than ever before to be thorough with the disinfection of surfaces to control the spread of bacteria or viruses. To review the thoroughness of a commercial cleaning company, it is worth paying a one-off cleaning at first. Then, even though the cost is higher when compared to a regular cleaning program, you can see the quality of their work with your own eyes. 2) Training. A professional team of commercial cleaning is not just a group of people full of cleaning products. Experience and training are essential for a cleaning team to provide thorough cleaning services. Experienced crews are well aware of the correct use of different cleaning products, their dose, and their correct application on surfaces. How can you tell if the team is trained to do commercial cleaning? If you can get a one-off cleaning from the company, keep a close eye on how they perform the job. Do they follow a checklist or a systematic way of cleaning? It doesn't mean that they will be carrying a paper checklist with them, but you will see them following the same patterns on every room of the building and using the same products and tools for the same materials. You will be able to see that their way of working is different from janitorial services that take care of everyday jobs only. A genuine service of commercial cleaning in Brisbane will easily stand out to you. For example, they will always clean before disinfecting, as stated on the Safe Work Australia site. 3) Flexibility. Don't let the cleaning of your commercial building control your schedule. It is essential to know that the company is reliable regarding their schedules and that they are flexible enough to adapt to your business needs. When contacting a commercial cleaning company, make sure to discuss your regular cleaning schedule in advance. You don't want to pay a one-off cleaning to realise later that the company's plan doesn't match your needs. 4) Check what is included. What you expect from commercial cleaning and what you might get can vary a lot. Therefore, it is crucial for you to share with the company what your expectations are and to inquire about what cleaning tasks they offer. For instance, do they include the washing of tea towels, emptying and cleaning trash bins, and cleaning appliances in their service? Commercial cleaning is not just cleaning windows, mopping, and vacuuming. A complete set of cleaning tasks is what you want to improve the image of your business. 5) Review the contract! As stated initially, many commercial cleaning businesses work based on lock-in contracts that you cannot get away from afterwards. It is highly recommended to stay away from these types of contracts that can make your commercial cleaning a constant nightmare. Instead, do your best to find the prices of a frequent cleaning service that allows you to stop anytime you want to adapt to your needs and expectations. Usually, a commercial cleaning company that has no lock-in contracts provide better quality on their cleaning services. That is the only means they have to keep their clients with their services. Time to search! It might take you some time to find the right commercial cleaning company for your business. Remember that you want a professional team that provides a high-quality service while keeping competitive prices, but above all, you want a company you can trust. Brisbane Clean from the A&R Commercial Cleaning group provides just that. No lock-in contracts, high quality in their work, and friendly service that you can trust.

How Impacted COVID-19 on U.S. Shale Gas in Chemical Industry ?
Impact of COVID-19 on U.S. Shale Gas in Chemical Industry INTRODUCTION Shale gas and shale oil are defined as natural gas & oil from shale formations. Shale is a type of sedimentary rock that is made up of very small clay particles and is highly porous in nature. It is formed in deep ocean water, lagoons, wetlands, and swamps where the water is still enough for extremely fine clay and silt particles to settle to the bottom. Since shale is a porous formation, it serves as both a source and a reservoir for unconventional hydrocarbons. The extraction of oil and gas from a shale formation involves mechanical stimulation. One such technique for stimulation is hydraulic fracturing or fracking. In the fracking process, cracks in and below the Earth's surface are opened and widened by injecting water, chemicals, and sand at high pressure. The combination of horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracking has made it possible to access vast quantities of shale gas that were previously uneconomical to generate. Natural gas output from shale deposits has given the United States natural gas industry a new lease on life. The demand for safe access to energy sources is growing globally. Shale oil and gas have played an important role in meeting global energy demand during the energy revolution and are expected to continue to do so for decades as society transitions to lower-carbon energy sources. The rapid growth of shale oil and gas contributes to increased supply stability and lower commodity prices. According to the United States Energy Information Administration (EIA), in the year 2011, the country’s estimated available natural gas resources totaled 2,552 trillion cubic feet (Tcf). Natural gas from shale deposits, which was once considered to be uneconomical, accounted for 827 Tcf of this resource total. In the year 2020, U.S. dry shale gas production was about 26 trillion cubic feet (Tcf), and equal to about 78% of total U.S. dry natural gas production. IMPACT OF COVID-19 ON U.S. SHALE INDUSTRY Shale oil and gas exploration have, in particular, given the US oil and gas industry new dimensions of development. It has also fueled significant investment in associated infrastructure for gathering, storing, and delivering hydrocarbons to both domestic and foreign markets. In less than a decade, the US shale industry turned the global energy landscape upside down and re-established the US as the global energy leader. The onset of a global pandemic and subsequent drop in oil prices, on the other hand, has taken the momentum out of the shale boom. Due to a sudden drop in demand, the shale industry has immediately self-corrected. Many oil and gas players succumbed to the economic shock resulted from the CoVID-19 and filed for bankruptcy. Chesapeake Energy, a shale leader and once second-largest gas producer in the United States, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in late June. According to the United States Energy Information Administration (EIA), the crude-oil output from seven major shale formations in the United states fell by around 56,000 barrels per day (BPD) in August 2020 to just under 7.5 million BPD, which would be the lowest level in two years. The shale industry is closely looped in with the oil and gas industry. The recent downfall of the oil and gas industry during the pandemic has had a severe impact on shale output. Post pandemic, the shale industry peaked, but the industry as a whole lost money. Since 2010, the US shale industry has produced USD 300 billion in net negative free cash flows, damaged more than USD 450 billion in invested capital, and seen more than 190 bankruptcies. With the advent of the coronavirus, the future for shale producers has become even bleaker, with a new bankruptcy filing occurring every week or so in the last few months. The pandemic's effects will be felt far beyond the US shale industry. Despite accounting for less than 10% of global oil and gas output, US shale oil extraction activity accounts for 40% of global shale oil extraction activity and accounts for nearly 100% of the growth in US midstream and export-oriented refining and petrochemical sectors over the last decade. STRATEGIC INITIATIVES DURING COVID-19 · Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) agreed on a continuation of March production levels for the month of April, with the exception of Russia and Kazakhstan, which will be authorized to increase production by 130,000 and 20,000 barrels per day, respectively, at their most recent meeting · Saudi Arabia has also agreed to extend its one-million-barrel-per-day voluntary cut for the month of April. · Companies such as Chevron, Shell, Schlumberger, and others have taken initiatives to safeguard their workforce in the ongoing pandemic situation. CONCLUSION On Conclusion, the pandemic has placed the shale industry in a delicate spot as major players are forced to cut down the output. The potential energy landscape in the United States and around the world is highly complex, and its drivers are interconnected. In the not-too-distant future, a wave of consolidation in the US shale industry could be triggered by the poor financial position of many firms and the weak economic outlook. The continuous demand for a ban on fracking, coupled with the effect of COVID, has cracked the shale industry severely. Although, the historic evidence indicates that the shale producers operate more economically. In comparison to 2019, producers in the Permian Basin are saving roughly 20% on good costs.
How Impacted COVID-19 on Intelligent Vending Machines in Semiconductors & Electronics Industry ?
Impact of COVID-19 on Intelligent Vending Machines in Semiconductors and Electronics Industry The pandemic begins with its epicenter in China in 2019 and has been continuously spreading by then to all over the globe, so far 216 countries and territories have been affected with COVID-19. The COVID-19 cases reaching to various countries which have strong dominance in the worldwide market and have adversely affected the economic growth globally. The spread of coronavirus has led to severe disruption such as global recession, many organizations are being forced to take stringent actions as lying of their employees and staffs, small and medium business is being shut down, and manufacturing & production facilities are being put on hold for a longer period. However, apart from this, the demand for food and beverages witnessed huge growth but this has increased the shortage of supply chain due to the panic buying from the populations.

Real World Evidence Are Used To Monitor The Post Market Safety and Adverse Events of Drugs
The emergence of this pandemic has posed severe financial constraints on pharma-biopharma companies in several countries. In this regard, RWE solutions have proven to be very helpful, as they allow industrial and academic researchers to monitor patients using digitally connected platforms while helping to organize and evaluate clinical data for regulatory submissions. The uncertainty brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically shifted how and when patients decide to seek medical care. In addition, shifts in healthcare coverage and provision during the pandemic have changed the discovery and reporting of certain outcomes in data and the treated population. This means that disease trends may lead to incorrect interpretations when RWD and RWE are not framed in the context of the pandemic and long-term COVID-19 disease, therapy, and lifestyle changes.   RWE is set to become the most influential emerging technology to help in the fight against the COVID-19 outbreak, according to the latest poll on GlobalData’s Pharmaceutical Technology website. In this poll, which was completed by 935 of its readers in April 2021, more than one-third of the respondents indicated that RWE would have the greatest impact on the management of COVID-19.  Even though emerging technologies, such as telemedicine, have existed for decades, most of healthcare systems rely heavily on in-person interactions between patients and clinicians. Nevertheless, the current requirement for social distancing measures is swiftly pushing the primary care provision toward remote care. Telemedicine and virtual care may also prompt a greater adoption of technologies such as wearables and digital therapeutics, thus accelerating digitalization in the healthcare space and boosting the importance of RWE and AI.  Download PDF Brochure @ https://www.marketsandmarkets.com/pdfdownloadNew.asp?id=76173991 The utilization of RWE in infectious disease control is not a new concept. During the Ebola outbreak in 2014, forecasters successfully used Global Epidemic and Mobility (GLEaM) simulations that combined real-world data on populations and their mobility with rigorous stochastic models of disease transmission to predict the global spread of the disease.  In countries with strict data privacy laws, the implications of contact-tracing apps on individual privacy are considered a major associated concern. While cryptographers are currently working on improving tracing apps to address the issue, tracking apps can only be effective when they are used by a significant proportion of the population. Therefore, it is critical that the functionality and safety of these applications are considered acceptable by the majority of the population.  Through the analysis of the data generated from various networks, healthcare organizations can benefit from sensible information, resulting in real-time disease monitoring and control. However, as the use of technology as a means to produce more and more data to drive insights and foresight increases, the ability to automate and analyze that data becomes a necessity. Accelerated digitalization in the healthcare space has revealed gaps in infrastructure, workforce, and digital education that ultimately need to be bridged.   Real World Evidence Solutions Market Dynamics Without intelligent analytics, RWE alone will not be able to produce meaningful and actionable results. Previously, the healthcare industry did not have the ability to gather RWE at the speed and scale needed to address urgent public health crises. However, this scenario has changed due to the pandemic. Advances in analytics and access to broad and diverse real-world data sets have made it possible to rapidly analyze data as it is captured to better understand how pandemics like COVID-19 are unfolding.  The pre-approved use of RWE in efficacy decisions is being carried out currently, and there is potential for it to be used more broadly, such as in oncology, rare diseases, and pediatric conditions when randomized controlled clinical trials are impossible or unethical to conduct. In parallel, legislators are recognizing the value of RWE. In the US, the 21st Century Cures Act, passed in December 2016, has established public-private partnerships to collect data and improve the understanding of diseases.
