Our areas of research include the following key industries, click on the link to learn more:
- Automotive & Electric Vehicles
Cost pressures, new competitors from other industries, new materials and technologies, and demographic trends are coming together to increase pressure on automotive manufacturers and their suppliers.
- Cement & Glass
The cement & glass industry follows the business cycle and the overall economic activity. The cement market is also regional in its nature, as transportation costs are high and the end user landscape is highly fragmented. The cement industry is a capital- and energy-intensive business that employs a relatively low intensity of labor. Capital allocation in the industry averages about $225 million per million tons of production capacity. With these levels of investments and highly cyclical demand, it is imperative to run operations efficiently, reliably, and economically throughout a
- Chemical & Materials
Recent economic and technology trends have had major impacts on the global chemicals industry. This applies to both the specialty chemicals and bulk chemicals sectors. The industry has also seen an increase in merger and acquisition activity in recent years, and this trend is likely to continue.
- CPG, Food & Beverage
Due to the essential nature of many of the products produced, the food & beverages industry is typically less affected by global economic conditions trends than many others, but is highly sensitive to government regulations that often determine how products are manufactured and where they can be sold. Regional demographic changes also often have a major impact on this industry.
- Electric Power & Smart Grid
Worldwide, the installed base of electric generating plants has a capacity of roughly 6,400 GW. Annual new construction is about 5 percent per year, or 320 GW. However the additions can be 'lumpy' depending on economics and energy policies. Older and generally smaller generating units are retired from service usually after a 40 year operating life (though this can be extended via further investment). The amount of generating capacity retired in a typical year can also vary greatly from year to year based on fuel prices, plant economics, and energy policies.
- Industry Concepts
ARC's Technology Concepts for Industry are enabling industrial organizations to improve operational performance and shareholder value.
- Life Sciences & Biotech
Globalization is leaving its mark on the pharmaceutical and biotech industries. While demand for medications is rising in emerging economies, cost pressures from healthcare payers in traditional markets are dampening drug makers economic prospects. The now ten-year absence of blockbuster drugs in the pipeline compounds this problem and this trend is not likely to change with current R&D processes.
