Innovation disrupting markets
Sustainability targets, whether from consumer demand or pressure from governments, mean companies cannot operate ‘business as usual’ and need to factor in more than just profit and loss.
Innovation in the chemical and energy industries over the last 50 years has been significant and the speed of new technologies disrupting existing markets is increasing. From changed demand dynamics in the energy markets due to electrification of vehicles, large scale batteries and green hydrogen to fully new markets developing around recycled plastics, innovations continuously open up new opportunities.
Markets being shaped by legislation
Legislation is fundamentally shaping the chemical and energy markets and driving change. Each legislation incentivised behaviour alterations with intended and sometimes unintended changes to market dynamics and fundamentals. For example, recovery programs in the wake of COVID-19, will drive a change in market conditions by incentivising a green recovery. With that new opportunities for investments will arise, but further regulations and environmental standards will also increase the risk of non-compliance.
How users benefit
Navigating this transition to cleaner materials requires greater understanding of new sustainable technologies and price drivers. Understanding what technologies will thrive and what impact they will have on supply/demand dynamics as industries shift to sustainable models will provide greater opportunities for investment and growth. Tracking legislation and translating its effect on market developments and supply/demand fundamentals will be imperative to be able to plan effectively.
