Shaping New Horizons

The concept of interaction among organizational, political, economic, environmental, and technological systems and the resulting synergy has resulted in a new way to support business growth. This phenomenon is being depicted under the term Innovation Ecosystems. Based on the intensity of innovations in the various innovation belts or regions for each technology cluster, the United States, Germany and South Korea have been chosen for analysis of technology developments across areas of
a) healthcare
b) chemicals-materials-food
c) clean and green environment, and
d) sustainable energy.

Research Objective and Scope

The objective of this research is to present analyses of national innovation indicators for a selected innovation belt/region/countries for identified technology areas. Based on the analyses, insights on where each of the selected innovation belt/region/countries will be by the year 2020 for each technology area will be articulated. The research scope covers the healthcare, chemicals, materials and foods, clean and green environment, and sustainable energy clusters. Further cluster coverage is as listed below.

Key Findings

Healthcare Life Sciences and Medical Devices
• An even major progression and synergy with related disciplines is expected for 2020. A life sciences and bioengineering revolution has been recognized from the advent of nanotechnologies, especially nanobiotechnologies involving nanofluidics approaches. By 2020, a massive integration of nanobiosensing devices is expected into the life sciences and bioengineering technology clusters. This technology implies significant advances toward personalized diagnostics and therapeutic.
• Extended capabilities of interventional radiology and cardiology and the shift toward minimally invasive surgeries have increased the demand for hybrid operating theatres. Interventional imaging modalities are also driving the development of supporting clinical applications software, enabling novel capabilities.

Chemicals Materials and Foods
• Increasing concerns about fuel emissions and promotion of low-carbon economy has resulted in the adoption of lightweight composites in aerospace applications and automotive applications.
• Research focus on the development of lightweight multimaterials and biocomposites is expected to find widespread adoption in the next three years.
• The use of nanocoatings and superhydrophobic coatings for enhanced functionalities and extended lifespan of substrates will help in reducing raw material use and result in cost savings and energy savings.

Clean and Green Technologies
• Waste minimization and waste upcycling is the main theme of all the countries in this segment. It is expected that technologies such as pyrolysis, waste gasification, anaerobic digestion, and so on will be adopted at large scale for producing energy from wastes by 2015.
• For desalination, the USA has made some significant development in the membrane desalination sector. Implementation of carbon fiber, graphene membranes, aquaporins, and so on can be considered as the technologies for the sustainable future. Also, technologies such as capacitive deionization and solar desalination are gaining importance all across the globe. It is expected that by 2015 to 2016 mass-scale adoption of efficient desalination technologies will occur.

Sustainable Energy
• Nowadays, a growing number of federal governments and organizations have begun to consider sustainable energy and industries related to its production, distribution and services as opportunities rather than regulations. Many believe that the trend will continue such that it is of paramount importance to prepare for the “green race” immediately. The governments of the United States of America, Germany, and South Korea are not exceptions. They have recently been intensifying efforts toward promoting economic growth via supporting sustainable energy sectors.
• Sustainable energy growth in terms of R&D efforts as well as technologies commercialization is expected to gain momentum as a result of several government incentives and schemes.
• As for grid energy management, all the three countries are encouraging its implementation. The current level of adoption is the highest in the USA, followed by Korea and Germany. However, Germany is more advanced than Korea in terms of grid energy management know-how.
