CHEMICALS & MATERIALS
Research & Advisory
The high costs of feedstock and labour. Shifts in global supply chains. Digital disruption Changing regulatory compliances. These are just a few of the issues faced by the global Chemicals industry.
But with these growing challenges come numerous opportunities. The Asian region, for example, is highly appealing and interesting because of high-consuming and fast-growing economies. In preparing for the future, chemical companies worldwide are wasting no time crafting their regional positioning strategies.
While established chemical companies strategise to maintain operations in their traditional saturated markets, they’re also exploring growth opportunities in expanding economies. At the same time, emerging companies strategise to manage rapid growth, and build mature processes while fine-tuning systems.
Notable emerging business models in the global chemical industry include:
- Companies starting to adopt strategic agility
- Companies start competing as entire ecosystems
- Companies becoming more customer-centric
- Companies pushing towards operational excellence and business process automation

Smart materials, autonomous vehicles
Smart materials react to changes in external stimulus such as stress, temperature, moisture, pH, magnetic & electric field, light, pressure etc. Increasing technological advancements have resulted in increased use of developed materials rather than conventional materials such as polymers, metal, and glass. Increasing number of end user applications for the smart materials suggest an upward trend in the smart materials market. This paper evaluates different industries from the perspective of potential opportunity and application areas for smart materials.Read more
Electric vehicle, Sensors
The electric vehicle (EV) revolution is picking up the pace, with countries like the UK and France mandating deadlines to phase out petrol and diesel engine cars. This tremendous shift in the mobility industry is also a massive opportunity for companies in chemicals & materials industry. This paper examines the opportunities for chemicals & materials companies across different dimensions such as: battery raw materials, cathode & anode active materials, cooling fluids / thermal management system, polymers, etc.Read more
