Key Market Trends

Growing Safety Measures Across Industries to Drive the Market Growth

  • Various industries across the world like oil and gas, mining are witnessing an increase in the production of materials owing to the greater consumption of resources across the world.
  • However, behind the scenes of such booming growth of the industry, is difficult and dangerous work. Ever-higher quotas, productivity, and profits are prioritized over employee safety. Oil rig injuries are often due to three factors, the fast-paced nature of the oil business, improperly trained workers and a lack of proper safety equipment in case of fire. When these elements are combined, they can create a condition for accidents, which is driving the market forward.
  • Crosspoint temperature method is one of the methods for the determination of susceptibility of the coal samples. A thermostat is used in this method to control the temperature of the furnace, usually, a linear heating rate is maintained, which if not maintained can lead to furnace damage or a fire incident, this is a major factor driving the market.
