Research Scope and Focus Areas
- The South East Asian economy is projected to grow at an annual rate of about % per year between 2013 and 2017 according to the Organization for Economic Development and Co-operation (OECD). To foster the economic growth several countries aim to integrate themselves into a single market and production base, calling themselves the Southeast Asian Nations Economic Community (ASEAN), scheduled for December 31, 2015. However, this integration is proving to be difficult due to differing levels of economic growth amongst them. The establishment of ASEAN could boost inter-regional trade and growth.
- Unfortunately, the region is beset with dysfunctional political situations between nations, and sovereignty of mightier nations over their smaller counterparts has led to some strife.
- Despite this, South East Asia is expected to move increasingly towards being a demand driver for the global stage. This is due to an increased projected purchasing power. This in turn is expected to boost the R&D (Research & Development) activities and promote innovation.
- This research service, “Innovations in Emerging Economies-South East Asia” aims at identifying and analyzing the innovations within the region for their local and global impact.
- The report highlights innovations in industries including:
- Automation & Electronics
- Information & Communications Technology
- Chemicals and Materials
- Energy and Environment
India is a research and development (R&D) hub for various major companies dealing with advanced computing and electronics. The emergence of technology startups is a positive sign for development of technologies that has global i
The innovation in the ICT domain is transforming the business and governance processes in the Southeast Asian region. Innovations are driving emergence of new concepts such as e-governance, e-commerce, e-banking and digital education, smart cities, m-health so on.
With several startups setting up in this region to target the innumerable opportunities in this emerging market, Southeast Asia is likely to reach new horizons in the near future especially in domains such as Big Data, Cloud Computing, Wireless technology.
Southeast Asia is a significant provider of fossil fuel products including oil, gas and coal. As these industries are the key pillars of the regional economy, the shift to a renewable energy economy is expected to be gradual. However, several countries such as Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia have set up strong regulatory policies to encourage the growth of the renewable energy industry.
The lesser developed countries in Southeast Asia such as Vietnam, Cambodia and Myanmar are instead focusing on providing its people with access to clean water and electricity, especially since a majority of its citizens are located in rural areas.
Considering the fact that costs, operating as well as raw materials, are cheaper in SEA, product-based innovations in the chemical industry must penetrate the commodity chemicals market. Product-based innovations need to focus on parsimony, especially relating to capital costs. Technologies creating value from waste streams or enhancing product yield show most promise.
Currently innovations in the chemicals industry draw inspiration from developed economies. This is because the system in place in developed economies pushes commercially viable innovations towards standardization.
There is a huge low- to middle income population in South East Asia, requiring access to cheaper medical devices, drugs and healthcare services. By and large, innovations in healthcare are aimed at providing low-cost solutions rather than developing cutting-edge technologies.
Innovations in healthcare have been observed to increasingly leverage mobile communications and internet connectivity, manifesting as mobile health, telemedicine and remote patient monitoring. These innovations help in delivering healthcare to places with poor access to healthcare facilities.
Owing to cheap labor, a large workforce, available funding and good infrastructure, business models such as low-cost manufacturing and service-based healthcare innovations are popular in South East Asia.
The South East Asian region has high acceptance and interest towards next generation manufacturing and electronic technologies such as 3D printing, 4D printing and wearable electronics.
