3D Printing - The genesis of a new realm of possibility in manufacturing and supply chain
3D Printing is a powerful technology that some are describing as revolutionary. Whilst many industrial manufacturers have been slow to adopt the technology, the number of companies adapting their manufacturing process and supply chains is expected to increase as the materials that can be used in 3D printing expand and the speed of printing improves: there are already reports of US research labs creating 3D printers that work at speeds of 5-6 times that of existing commercial 3D printers. This industry guide from Ipsos Business Consulting looks at the potential developments in industrial manufacturing with a spotlight on China, India and the ASEAN countries.
Indonesia's Aquaculture Industry - Key Sectors for Future Growth
The main growth driver for Indonesia's fisheries is the fact that key commodities such as fish and shrimp continue to enjoy strong demand domestically and abroad respectively. The main domestic factor is the fact that the archipelago nation of more than 250 million people is a major consumer of fish. Fish consumption per capita was estimated at 33.76 kg / year in 2014. Thanks to wide coastline and warm tropical climate, Indonesia has become one of the top 4 nations in fishery production.

As the world’s 14th most populated country, Vietnam and its 94 million people are increasing their livestock consumption as they experience higher income and population growth. Despite the relatively stable growing trend of livestock production over the past few years, meat output has not managed to keep up with the current consumption demand. This paper provides commentary on the growth and trajectory of Vietnam’s meat industry, as well as a close look at the market gap for businesses seeking successful investment in Vietnam’s meat sector.
Indonesia’s developing used car market is gradually becoming more structured due to the greater availability of flexible financing terms, standardized and authorized dealership channels and better transparency of information.

Opportunities and Challenges in China’s 3D Printing Market
Adoption of 3D printing in China is taking place at a much slower rate than previously expected, despite its potential to drive innovation across a range of industries from education and healthcare to creative design and engineering. Ipsos Business Consulting research reveals hype surrounding the technology as a key limiting factor. Outlandish claims about the uses of 3D printing are creating confusion in the market which is in turn stalling its development. However, opportunities exist for agile companies who are able to dispel such myths by effectively communicating and marketing the technology’s practical applications. Concerted efforts by both government and the private sector to bridge the knowledge gap will be essential to ensure long-term growth.
Trends in China’s Automotive Component Manufacturing Industry
China's automotive components sector is set to achieve annual growth of 20 per cent for the next five years driven by demand for new cars and a growing secondary market. The aftermarket segment will become the main outlet for automotive parts as the average age of vehicles on the road continues to rise and the current total car population has already surpassed 100 million. The counterfeit auto parts market, already the world's largest with a current value of about US$40bn, will only increase as the overall market grows.
Territorial oil disputes, rising fuel prices, nuclear disasters and choking smog levels have brought energy issues sharply into focus in recent years. Opinion polls have highlighted the concerns from all countries about the safety, affordability and sustainable supply of energy. This paper from Ipsos Business Consulting considers the energy challenges facing ASEAN countries up to the end of this decade and how they will shape the region in subsequent years. As the ASEAN economies continue to grow, so too will consumption rates of energy and hence, fossil fuels. This could create further strains on overloaded grids and further pollution in the skies and waterways. Ipsos will consider some the technologies and trends that could help to avert this disastrous scenario.
