Corporate Strategic Intelligence: BASF

BASF is the world’s largest chemical company, with about 70% of its businesses currently maintaining top-three market positions. Its diverse portfolio is almost evenly split between commodities and specialties. BASF’s success so far largely relies on its operational efficiency and cost advantage, stemming from its dominant scale and integrated value chain called Verbund structure. It has also constantly worked to reduce its exposure to cyclical commodities by shifting its product mix toward higher-value specialty solutions. In recent years, BASF has undertaken an overall careful corporate strategy on both in-house innovation and technology scouting. This indeed helps the firm steadily adjust its portfolio while keeping a healthy cash flow during volatile market conditions, but has resulted in its overall moderate innovation performance relative to its major rivals, which leaves the big company vulnerable to increased competition and market swings. BASF needs a more flexible and efficient business model to balance its portfolio between commodities and specialties in order to sustain its future growth.

Advancements at the Seabed – The Future of Subsea Production in the Low Oil Price Era

Subsea production systems contribute roughly 10% of the global oil production with the vision of a subsea factory often described as the next big disruption in the offshore industry. In this report, we analyse the impact of low oil prices on subsea systems post 2014 and their feasibility in the modern era. Furthermore, we address the question whether the novel concept of subsea factories will indeed be realized based off the progress made by startups in the subsea space.

Key Low-Carbon Fuel Companies and Developments in 2017

The low-carbon fuels industry has matured and been fairly set in its ways for several decades. However, the introduction of new conversion technologies is bringing the industry to the cusp of a tipping point set to alter the future landscape as new processes target the production of low-carbon fuels. While first-generation biofuels will remain the pillars of the industry, a stronger focus and regulatory shift from sheer volumes and blending mandates towards carbon-centric policies will enable the emergence of a new generation of low-carbon fuels offering better performance and a lower carbon profile. There are seven major categories of low-carbon fuels – biodiesel, bio-CNG/LNG, bio-electricity, drop-in fuels, ethanol, gasoline/diesel, and renewable hydrogen. In this report, we use the Lux Innovation Grid (LIG) to assess companies in our database within each category. We also highlight key technology developers to watch for in the next two years.
