  • How Will FRP Composites Shape the Future of Building Materials? Recorded: Jul 6 2017 51 mins
    Vinay Venkatesan, Senior Research Analyst, Frost & Sullivan and Mark Singleton, Startlink Systems Ltd.
    Strong growth in building and construction activity in North America is expected to drive demand for composites. The poor state of US infrastructure is creating opportunities for composites in highways and bridge applications. In Europe, steady recovery of construction activity, mainly in residential and commercial construction, provides several opportunities for use of fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) composites. The highest demand is likely to come from customers seeking alternatives with key properties of anti-corrosion, resistance to chemicals, light weight and longer life spans compared to traditional materials such as steel, concrete and aluminum. This briefing provides a broader understanding of regional growth trends for composites, their use in building and construction, supporting regulations, drivers and challenges. It also demonstrates opportunities wherein fiberglass composites can outperform conventional steel and concrete.
  • Digital Technologies are Transforming the Chemical Industry Recorded: May 31 2017 56 mins
    Dr. Brian Balmer, Industry Director, Chemicals & Materials
    Frost & Sullivan has identified eight key themes through which digital transformations are affecting the chemical industry. Investment in digital technologies is booming in all industries, and the chemical industry is no exception. Furthermore, since chemicals are the raw materials for all other industries, digital transformations in these industries will have a massive effect on their demand for chemicals. The opportunities presented to chemical companies by digital transformations are therefore many and complex, and consequently hard to navigate. For chemical companies to make the most of the opportunities presented by digital transformations, they must be aware of the range of these themes and also their interconnectedness.

  • Innovations Contributing to the Overall Growth of Smart Agriculture Technology Recorded: Mar 8 2017 61 mins
    Chris Shanahan, Global Director, Agriculture & Nutrition, Frost & Sullivan
    The global agriculture sector has encountered challenges with the lack of adequate food for the growing malnourished population, the continued radical decrease in the areas of global arable land, and a dearth of technology that supports increased productivity and reduced labor dependency. These challenges are being addressed by integrating farming with technologies that provide decision support systems, effective farm monitoring, crop management, improved farm household income and farm output, and an overall improvement in the efficiency of the agricultural system. Critical factors for successfully exploiting opportunities in the smart agriculture sector include providing a means to enable continuous monitoring, enabling real-time data collection, increasing automation of crop cultivation and livestock production systems, and effectively demonstrating increased farmer return on investment.
