Electronic Materials: The Emerging Solutions

Coverage Areas: Accelerating Materials Innovation More...

Planned Publication Date: September 2019

Demand for 5G electronics and the emergence of the internet of things have created new demand for materials that offer higher performance but are cheap enough to enable rollout of millions of new devices. This report will identify new materials technologies in polymers for electronics and thermal management, as well as the technology developers behind these efforts, and pick winners for commercialization.

Net Zero Energy Buildings and their impact on the grid

Coverage Areas: Future Grid More...

Planned Publication Date: September 2019

Net zero energy buildings (NZEBs) are designed to generate as much energy as they consume and be as energy-efficient as possible. The increased availability of a variety of distributed energy resources in commercial and residential buildings is supporting the growth in deployments of NZEBs. This report looks to quantify the market for NZEBs, analyze the impact that these buildings have on the power grid, and provide a forecast of the future of energy in the built environment.

Bioinformatics in Agrifood and Health

Coverage Areas: Accelerating Materials Innovation More...

Planned Publication Date: September 2019

Made in China 2025 is the most important government policy set to transform China into a global innovation leader in the next five years. In this report, we analyze the ten key industry sectors highlighted in this policy by identifying the specific technologies that China will be developing domestically, the funding that will support it, and the key companies where the core competencies of these technologies are embedded.

Decarbonizing the Industrial Sector

Coverage Areas: Owning the Energy Transition

Planned Publication Date: September 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 key industrial sectors to decarbonize their operations, and assess the opportunities and challenges that exist for sector.

Demystifying holography, light fields and other 3D depth reach technologies for immersive experiences.

Coverage Areas: Digital Transformation More...

Planned Publication Date: September 2019

As AR technologies continue to see adoption, limitations of use cases become apparent as well. Light aberrations, lack of depth perception, and vergence-accommodation stress are inherently present in current AR headsets based on various waveguides. The next generation of immersive technologies will be built on holographic image constructions and can be personalized either via worn headsets or through 3D displays that don’t require a headset and enable accessibility for multiple viewers at once. This report will detail how holography delivers natural depth perception, what’s required in terms of hardware and software development, and what applications and market opportunities are ahead for unobstructed immersive experiences.

Point-of-care Diagnostics 2.0: Beyond the Clinic

Coverage Areas: Digital Health and Wellness More...

Planned Publication Date: September 2019

Point-of-care diagnostics (POCDs) have been essential tools in the rapid detection of biomarkers and analytes, which facilitates better disease diagnosis, monitoring, and management. However, with some exceptions like the pregnancy test kit and glucose test strips, first-generation POCDs have traditionally been reliant on biomarkers that require specialized conditions and trained personnel to handle. First-generation POCDs also offer limited utility in the information they provide, and more follow-up tests are often needed to get more in-depth, actionable information. A new generation of POCDs is emerging that not only enhances what existing POCDs can do, but also offers new diagnostic modalities that are minimally invasive or non-invasive. In addition, POCD 2.0 increasingly allow the layperson to run tests at the convenience of his/her homes and get a rapid assessment, allowing follow-up steps to be taken to address any deviations. This report will assess the maturity of POCD 2.0 and how these diagnostics are playing a role not just in the clinic and in at-home-use for patients, but also among healthy consumers, offering predictive analytics that ensure consumers stay on a healthy path.
