Batteries today are omnipresent today that they are invisible to us. Running in cars, digital cameras, drones, bulbs, mechanical tools, inverters, ships, trains, airplanes, windmills and even in satellites. The basic science behind the battery is chemical energy converting to electrical energy containing three main components: Anode, Cathode, and Electrolyte. The revolution in the battery over the years are through several stages of chemical combinations and implementations. Starting from Voltaic Pile to Daniell Cell, then from Lead-Acid to Nickel Cadmium battery, further evolving to Alkaline Battery, Nickel-Metal Hydride (NiMH) and then finally to Lithium-ion battery.

DODGED THE DIGITAL DILEMMA
The shift from analog to digital technology has given a new lease of life for NDT applications in the industrial radiography market, thus, broadening the scope beyond traditional applications. Digital X-ray systems are proliferating with increased acceptance across all industry verticals, including highly regulated and traditionally conservative aerospace and automotive industries. The most significant contributing factor for this paradigm shift to digital X-ray systems is the cost-saving, which is 5-6 times more (in both computed and direct radiography) when compared to film-based systems.

The lobal semiconductor industry is one of the mature as well as promising industries and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.5% from 2016 to 2024. Supported by the growth in electronic industry and upcoming innovative products is majorly driving the market growth. 2016 has seen a mixed growth; however, a consistent growth is expected in the year 2017. Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) replacing nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS) is one of the best examples this industry has seen and the size of the chips are further expected to decrease in the coming years.
