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)

The Market Opportunity for Emerging Displays

Coverage Areas: Accelerating Materials Innovation More...

Planned Publication Date: Q3 2019

Flexible displays have been an emerging opportunity for over a decade, but have yet to achieve significant traction. In this report, we'll explore the state of the flexible displays market, how the technology's challenges can be overcome to enable widespread adoption, and how clients should participate in the flexible displays value chain.

China's Public, Private, People Approach to Innovation

Coverage Areas: Accelerating Materials Innovation More...

Planned Publication Date: Q3 2019

In recent years China is continuously challenging the West for the top spot on the global innovation leader board. With a face-paced innovation process that is counter intuitive to the traditional stage-gate approach developed and deployed in the West, China is quickly transforming itself into a global innovation leader - shedding its dated copycat stereotype and quickly transforming into the copied. At the root of this success is the fast changing socio-economic trends coupled with access to cutting edge technologies. In a unique public-private-people partnership, the government, private sector, and the masses together are enabling the country in bringing new innovations into the market at lighting speed.

The Status of Non-metal and Non-polymer 3D Printing

Coverage Areas: Accelerating Materials Innovation More...

Planned Publication Date: Q3 2019

This report aims to define the 3D printing technology landscape for non-metal and non-polymer materials. It answers the following questions: Who are the key players developing other materials in the 3D printing space? What are their technological readiness levels? What does the technology development roadmap look like?

How 3D Printing Software Will Accelerate the Development of 3D Printing

Coverage Areas: Accelerating Materials Innovation More...

Planned Publication Date: Q4 2019

In the last few years, synergies between the design software space and 3D printing have become increasingly apparent. For example, generative design software takes advantage of 3D printing’s ability to expand manufacturability and vastly enlarges the explorable design candidate space. 3D printing simulation software models the stress profile of a part, and therefore predicts part failure before physically printing it. Within the 3D printing community, we are seeing a trend of 3D printing companies developing and strengthening their software components. Several major examples include Desktop Metal’s software for generative design, Markforged’s cloud-based software for part print optimization, and Arevo’s computer-aided design (CAD) and FEA-based software for 3D printing design and simulation. In this report, we review the most relevant 3D printing software technologies and argue that the formation of a 3D printing software thread (design, simulation, manufacturing, as well as workflow management and data security) with data control through the whole process will be crucial for 3D printing at industrial scale. We expect to see more 3D printing companies either develop their own software strategies or to partner with large software companies in the near future.

Ubiquitous Sensing

This report will take a look at the region's energy startup ecosystem and identify the key players leading the cause and the unique sets of challenges they face. As the future global center of energy demand, it remains critical to understand the region to find key opportunities to enter the market with a higher success rate.

Decarbonizing the Industrial Sector: Carbon Capture

Coverage Areas: Owning the Energy Transition

Planned Publication Date: Q4 2019

In our recently-published "Decarbonizing the Industrial Sector" report, we introduced carbon capture as a key technology that will allow multiple industrial sectors to decarbonize their operations by capturing CO₂ emissions from point-sources. In this report, we will look at the cost of carbon capture using multiple configurations, as well as the regulatory framework support needed to support the adoption of carbon capture in the industrial sector.
