Coverage Areas: Owning the Energy Transition

Planned Publication Date: July 2019

The interest in crude-to-chemicals has rapidly grown in recent years with multiple integrated oil companies moving further into the downstream value chain. This report offers a landscape for the process, answering three questions: The various technologies C2C comprises of, the chemicals that can be produced, and the economics associated with the process.

New business models emerge in the agrichemical industry

Coverage Areas: Agro Innovation More...

Planned Publication Date: July 2019

Digital transformation is occurring across commercial industries and a similar transformation is emerging in the agrichemical sector. Currently 90% of growers receive inputs directly from agrichemical manufacturer/distributors that apply traditional business to business (B2B) models, but digital transformation provides the opportunity to relieve pain points from the B2B model; for example, enabling product performance comparisons, decreasing transaction speed, and enabling data driven product selection and recommendation. We will walk through the current market trends and landscape of this digital transformation, discuss emerging E-commerce business models, and provide insight regarding the digital future of the agrichemical industry.

The Digital Transformation of Industries

Coverage Areas: Digital Transformation

Planned Publication Date: July 2019

The digital transformation provides a launching point for digital-native companies to establish themselves in the physical industries. Incumbents need to anticipate how this change will impact their industry and act on the threats that they face. We create a framework for understanding the digital transformation of an industry, which identifies six core outcomes that digital transformation achieves in any application: uncover invisible insights, predict the future, optimize, upskill humans, make information accessible, and automate. We also discuss how digital use cases, tools, and outcomes are typically lateral across industries, and thus how learnings from one industry can translate to another.

Decarbonizing the Industrial Sector

Coverage Areas: Owning the Energy Transition

Planned Publication Date: July 2019

The industrial sector is responsible for 21% of global CO2 emissions and will be the hardest to decarbonize due to its intrinsic need for carbon feedstock and high thermal requirements needs for process operations. However, the industry is coming under increasing pressure to innovate and adopt low-carbon solutions. In this report, we will examine the various technology options available for the industry to decarbonize its operations, and assess the opportunities and challenges that present exist for each technology option.

Asia's Future City

Coverage Areas: Digital Transformation More...

Planned Publication Date: July 2019

Asia's rising urbanization presents numerous opportunities for bleeding edge technology deployment. However, at the same time, lack of traditional infrastructure and a variety of problems from traffic congestion and pollution, will only be amplified as droves of people migrate into cities. While most nations plan to address the immediate needs, several have futuristic aspirations for developing digital societies in a future city. In this report, we analyze the key technologies that will address the demands of Asia's future city as well as highlight the key innovators developing them domestically.
