August 23, 2018 | State of the Market Report

In May 2017, we published “Chemicals and Materials: Seven Market and Technology Trends for 2017 and Beyond,” summarizing seven significant chemicals and materials trends that Lux analysts saw shaping and being shaped by innovation in the industry. A year later, we are taking another strategic snapshot of the industry. We’ve highlighted four market trends (two updated from 2017, two new) and three technology trends (two updated from 2017, one new) that will have a major commercial impact on the industry. These seven trends are summarized in the next two slides, which are followed by more detailed descriptions of each individual trend.
