World Economic Background

•World economy saw a humble growth rate of x % in 2013.
•Japan finally managed to tackle its 10-year long deflation.
•The economic situation in Europe started to look better with the GDP* scene showing signs of improvement.

Emerging market companies are expected to pose a threat to multi-nationals, representing a major shift in the global competitive landscape.
Economists concur that the end of euro zone recession, US recovery, and an economic slowdown in China were the key drivers of a comforting economy in ‘14.
Among the BRIC nations, Brazil and Russia were expected to grow by 3 and x %, respectively, while India and China posed x % and x % in 2014.

Latest Technological Advancements in Chemistry

Agro Chemicals
Catalyst AgTech developed a customizable, patented technology with a "self-destruction" mechanism for use in persistent pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides.

Green Chemistry
Focus is shifting toward using renewable feedstocks. Some examples would be surfactants, polyols, ethene, and propene.

Specialty Chemicals
A compelling new technology called Micro-reaction has enabled the miniaturization and development of micro-structured reactors, mixers, and other microprocess components.

Nanotechnology has many diverse applications, starting from supplying drugs to specific cells, repairing tissues, and producing lighter, more efficient plastics for aerospace, construction, and vehicles.

Auto and aerospace designers are adopting strong, durable plastics that weigh much lesser than traditional materials and help save energy. Boeing is using lightweight carbon-plastic composites for its new 787 Dreamliner to reduce weight and save energy.

In 2012, chemical companies invested $57 billion in research and development (R&D) to support new innovation.
