Biomimicry is the study of nature to discover underlying mechanisms that can be used to solve human problems. It has been shown to deliver solutions in a variety of niche, but meaningful, applications. Most biomimicry research is "bottom-up" - biological phenomenons are identified before looking for practical applications - but innovators in industry want to use a "top-down" approach that begins with a specific design problem or market need and finds a biomimetic technology to address it. In this report, we explore how companies interact with biomimicry and its applications in solving well-defined design challenges.Through this analysis, we found that most clients can trust that conventional technology scouting approaches will identify biomimicry-based solutions as they arrive, but there may be certain cases where clients should use biomimicry solution specialists to screen for ideas.
