Automotive and transportation

Reimagining personal transport and urban mobility to underpin convergence

  • While technology is central to the driverless cars of the future, automotive companies are looking at other partners
  • Consumer products companies will help reinvent the in-car experience
  • Financial services to guide on new purchasing/fleet/leasing models, especially as more people forgo owning a personal vehicle
  • Industrials will build the new cars of the future

Consumer products and retail

Customers looking for bundled services and products to propel consumer facing companies

  • As the car becomes an extension of the home, consumers will want the same experience
  • Automated factories to replace off shoring across many CP subsectors
  • Wearable technology to increase as connectivity and data analytics advance
  • The emerging wellness industry to bind consumer healthcare and life sciences companies

Industrials

Rapid advances in robotics to evolve manufacturing and production across all sectors

  • Advanced manufacturing to replace humans across, automotive, consumer and resources sectors
  • Reshoring will change the nature of supply chains
  • Technology and industrials to merge further into a single super sector
  • New power sources needed to accelerate localised autonomous robotic processes

Financial services

New leasing models across all sectors to drive FS convergence

  • As companies move to new ways of acquiring services (tangible to intangible – software as a service, manufacturing as a service etc) FS companies will need to offer new types of funding models
  • Automotive and consumer services will be transformed as companies try to engage with consumers based on repeated and constantly updating service offerings, which may involve new financial contract structuring

Healthcare

The nascent wellness industry looks set to transform healthcare

  • Life sciences is the obvious convergence sector for health care, but the burgeoning wellness industry is aligning them both with consumer products and financial services
  • Technology tie-ups have the ability to drive efficiencies through the healthcare sector, from patient tracking, through combinations with multiple health and life science collaborators, to billing and reimbursements

Life Sciences

Life sciences convergence driven by patient demands for total healthcare

  • As patients demand more bespoke healthcare, life sciences companies will combine with consumer products and tech to provide the data required for such treatments
  • Life sciences will also increasingly converge with the healthcare sector, as the increasing cost of drugs and treatments meets resistance form payer groups.

Media and entertainment

Consumer demands for anywhere, anytime access compels content producers to look at combinations

  • The natural affinity between media and entertainment, technology and telecommunications is now an everyday reality, as consumer demands drive the industry
  • Media & entertainment companies will increasingly look to the automotive sector for opportunities, as the connected and driverless car enables more time for content consumption when travelling

Mining and metals

The resources sub-sectors will increasingly look at convergence opportunities as IR4.0 revolutionises the use of power

  • Each industrial revolution has been enabled by and accelerated, changing patterns of power generation, storage, and consumption
  • IR4.0 will have a keen focus on clean, smart and localised power sources
  • Companies across the renewables sector will increasingly collaborate to reinvent their operations and business models for this new power environment

Oil and Gas

The resources sub-sectors will increasingly look at convergence opportunities as IR4.0 revolutionises the use of power

  • Each industrial revolution has been enabled by and accelerated, changing patterns of power generation, storage, and consumption
  • IR4.0 will have a keen focus on clean, smart and localised power sources
  • Companies across the renewables sector will increasingly collaborate to reinvent their operations and business models for this new power environment

Power and utilities

The resources sub-sectors will increasingly look at convergence opportunities as IR4.0 revolutionises the use of power

  • Each industrial revolution has been enabled by and accelerated, changing patterns of power generation, storage, and consumption
  • IR4.0 will have a keen focus on clean, smart and localised power sources
  • Companies across the renewables sector will increasingly collaborate to reinvent their operations and business models for this new power environment

Real estate, hospitality and construction

Traditional considerations such as potential earnings yield and valuation must now be considered alongside a range of other factors from connectivity to health and wellbeing.

  • The whole value chain in RHC will be reinvented as changing customer demands increase the need for higher quality and more agility - from initial planning and construction to sale and rental operators
  • Connectivity is accelerating the adoption of smart-building technologies. New buildings will incorporate the latest technologies, such as voice-controlled utilities, environmentally friendly heating and light, and integration with new forms of transport infrastructure
  • Advances in behavioural sciences are also helping reimagine work and home environments. Wellbeing will be critical in constructing new physical environments, with the focus on tenants rather than owners

Technology

Technology may be at the heart of other sectors convergence plans, but tech companies themselves looking outwards for growth opportunities

  • Technology companies have a very keen eye on the consumer when they look at convergence
  • Automotive, consumer products, media and entertainment and telecom are all at the mercy of rapidly changing consumer preferences and demands
  • Technology companies can see opportunities for combining their ability to understand and interpret changing behaviours with the need of these companies to pivot and react quickly

Telecommunications

As the world becomes even more connected, telecom companies will have myriad opportunities to drive growth across all sectors

  • Always connected is the new requirement, both for people and machines
  • IR4.0, the internet of things, 5g connectivity and the ability to provide a signal everywhere, puts telecoms companies at the heart of many emerging technologies, products and services
  • While technology will be the main sector partner for telecoms, they will look to leverage technology to drive their own growth, especially in automotive and consumer
