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.

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. 

Decarbonizing the Industrial Sector: Power-to-Chemicals

Coverage Areas: Accelerating Materials Innovation More...

Planned Publication Date: July 2019

In our recently-published "Decarbonizing the Industrial Sector" report, we introduced electrochemical conversion as a key technology that will allow the chemical industry to decarbonize its operations by replacing fossil-based feedstock with low-carbon alternatives produced from renewable electricity. In this report, we will look at the cost of electrifying key industrial processes, including but not limited to methanol production and ammonia synthesis, as well as the regulatory framework support needed to support the adoption of electrochemical technologies in the industrial sector.

Industrial Power Symbiosis: Finding Cost-Effective Cases for On-Site Power Generation

Coverage Areas: Future Grid More...

Planned Publication Date: August 2019

When and how will industrial customers of electricity find it most cost-effective to source their own electricity from on-site generators? This report will match power generation technologies with the industries that can benefit from their use and secondary benefits, such as heat and hydrogen production.

Partnership Opportunities in Polymer 3D Printing

Coverage Areas: Accelerating Materials Innovation More...

Planned Publication Date: Q3 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?

Net Zero Energy Buildings and their impact on the grid

Coverage Areas: Future Grid More...

Planned Publication Date: Q3 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.

Genomics in agriculture

Coverage Areas: Agro Innovation More...

Planned Publication Date: Q3 2019

Big data in agriculture was initially synonymous with "precision agriculture," however the rise of genomics and other informatics tools are fundamentally changing the roles DNA and data play in agriculture. (This report will be the first of a "Genomics in X" series, building on the "Power of DNA" report/webinar)
