Building upon the McKinsey report, Disruptive Technologies: Advances that will transform life, business, and the global economy, this presentation will focus on four disruptive technologies relevant to chemicals/advanced materials:

Additive manufacturing (also known as 3D printing)
Advanced materials, e.g., carbon nanotubes and graphene
Next-generation genomics
Shale oil & gas exploration and recovery.

Their disruptive potential is assessed along three dimensions:

Market growth: How explosive could it be?
Technology: Are new applications required? To what extent could these technologies replace existing technologies?
Business models/value chains: Could the current value chains (from building blocks to intermediates and formulations to end-users) change dramatically based on these technologies?

Learn the critical issues related to these industry game-changers. Moderated by Sam Samdani, the panelists are Chris Krampitz, Strategy Manager, Digital Manufacturing Technologies, UL (Underwriters Laboratories), and Miguel Mireles, business development, chemicals and materials, Grace Matthews.
