Bioinformatics in Agrifood and Health

Coverage Areas: Agro Innovation More...

Planned Publication Date: September 2019

The availability and production of biological data continues to grow as next generation analyses become more cost effective. While bioinformatic solutions are not new to the biotech industry, they are often shrouded in the jargon of genomics and computer science while fundamentally changing the roles this data across the Agrifood and Health Ecosystem. This report clearly defines bioinformatics, explores the current landscape of available tools, differentiates developers, and lays of the future opportuntiies for these solutions.

Made in China 2025: Identifying China's Move up the Global Value Chain

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.

Bio-based Intermediate Chemicals Market Growth

Coverage Areas: Accelerating Materials Innovation More...

Planned Publication Date: September 2019

This report will assess growth projections of intermediate chemicals given different oil-price environments.

Partnership Opportunities in Polymer 3D Printing

Coverage Areas: Accelerating Materials Innovation More...

Planned Publication Date: September 2019

The polymer 3D printing space is becoming more fragmented with hundreds of start-ups, various materials, material form factors, and involvement of large corporations and service bureaus. What is the nature of the polymer 3D printing value chain? How is the partnership network evolving? And, what are the partnerships opportunities in the polymer 3D printing value chain?

The Digital Transformation of Industries

Coverage Areas: Digital Transformation

Planned Publication Date: September 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.

Analyzing Technical Barriers to Realizing the Hyperloop

Coverage Areas: The Future of Mobility

Planned Publication Date: September 2019

Hyperloop was first proposed as an alternative to high-speed rail or airplanes for long-distance travel in 2013. Since then, SpaceX's open call for designs has attracted dozens of startups and university groups. As the next Hyperloop Design competition approaches this summer, this report will detail the feasibility of various Hyperloop designs and identify key technical limitations.

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.

Plastic Recycling Technologies Cost Assessment

Coverage Areas: Accelerating Materials Innovation More...

Planned Publication Date: October 2019

This report will model the cost of various plastic recycling technologies in order to assess and compare their respective value propositions.
