Reportlinker Adds Chromium - Global Market Trends
Date:12/1/2009

NEW YORK, Dec. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Chromium - Global Market Trends

http://www.reportlinker.com/p0164494/Chromium---Global-Market-Trends.html

Worldwide demand for chromium is primarily influenced by stainless steel, while growth in aerospace and industrial gas turbine markets is also important for growth of chromium metal. Environmental constraints and rapid development of alternatives are issues throttling the chromium industry. Acute scarcity of chrome is a looming prospect. Chromium picolinate, one of the safest forms and the most bioavailable source of chromium, is used for weight loss, as it aids in maintaining healthy blood cholesterol levels, body composition and healthy blood glucose levels.

These and other market data and trends are presented in "Chromium: Global Market Trends" by BizAcumen, Inc. Our reports are designed to be most comprehensive in geographic coverage and vertical market analyses.
