"There are a number of megatrends that have the potential to revolutionize our lives, from smart homes to electric vehicles," says Frost & Sullivan Principal Industry Analyst, Dr. Brian Balmer.

"2010 has seen chemical companies continue to strive for market position, not through strength in a particular product group, but by building expertise in meeting end-user needs. This change emphasizes the importance of the chemical industry in enabling key trends further downstream. However, understanding the link between these downstream needs and the demand for chemical innovation can be difficult," said Balmer.
