Chapters follow a first, second, and third base format: 1. Business Insight (understanding the industry), 2. Growth Insight (understanding opportunity), and 3.

What are Mega Trends and Micro Booms?

Time frames for Mega Trends are from the current year to 15 years out.

Micro Booms: Contributing to these Mega Trends are many smaller but equally compelling trends that are defined in time frames of 1 year and can offer immediate opportunities for companies that know how to identify and capitalize on them. The Frost & Sullivan IPC team is highlighting these Micro Booms and the opportunities they present.
