The economy has been hit hard by COVID-19. In order to survive and grow, industries and companies need to rethink their business models. Many companies from the ‘old economy’ will disappear, while others will grow faster than ever before. Digitisation will play a decisive role in these changes. Companies that use technology will recover faster after a crisis or recession. They have enormous resilient power. Trendforce.one provides the knowledge and inspiration needed to turn challenging times into success stories.

What can you expect from us?

Startups and organisations

The organisation of the future is an ecosystem. It relies on innovations from specialists outside the organisation and perhaps even from outside the country's borders. Startups, innovative companies and scientists all contribute to your innovation. You will receive proposals from startups, innovative organisations and universities that you can learn from and partner with. 

Cases studies and experiments

We also analyse case studies of and experiments by organisations. These provide insight into how one deals with innovation, new technology, a recession or the impact of the current crisis. We can learn from the successes and failures of others. This lowers unnecessary costs and results in a higher change rate.

Scientists, specialists, trendwatchers, futurists and leaders from all over the world share their forecasts and analyses about the future. We list them for you and provide explanations and context, transforming the information into insights that offer direction and guidance.

Analyses and forecasts

You will receive a periodic overview of digital innovations and business models in your sector that might be of interest, but we also look at other industries. Digital business models provide guidance during a crisis or recession. In addition, organisations without a digital business model have no right of existence in the future.

Business models and innovations

We analyse many trends within your sector or area of expertise. We study developments in construction robots, artificial intelligence, blockchain, smart cities and many other trends. These insights enable you to make the right decisions and help you enter into valuable partnerships.

Trends with impact

We gather, analyse and interpret current (inter)national statistics. We continuously conduct international research into important issues currently at play, such as the economy, innovation, transformation and the role of technology.

Statistics

A subscription gives you access to up-to-date information about developments in the construction sector. You will receive recent statistics, analyses, forecasts, current technology trends, case studies, experiments and new business models.

You will receive information about current trends in the construction sector. The topics will be determined on a monthly basis, so that you’ll receive the most recent knowledge and inspiration

Important trends in construction

Construction robots
Slowly but surely, even the construction industry will see the implementation of robotic systems. Think bricklaying robots, autonomous construction vehicles, drones mapping building sites, and 3D-printers creating entire structures. Yes, these high-tech machines will eventually replace many human construction workers. This will minimise the number of accidents, prevent injuries and make human workers more efficient.
Digital twins
Wouldn't it be incredible if you could create virtual ‘what if’ scenarios for buildings before investing cold, hard resources? Digital twins – digital replicas of physical structures – can be used to run simulations before building actual structures. You can also use a digital twin for receiving sensor data from its real-world counterpart to gain valuable insights and predict challenges.
Augmented construction workers
In challenging and often dangerous conditions, exoskeletons help workers move heavy objects, perform overhead tasks, and prevent accidents or injuries. Augmenting construction workers can also be done by kitting them out with VR/AR headsets for added assistance or training purposes. Fitting construction workers with sensor tech and connecting them to smart platforms makes their work safer and more efficient.
Virtual and augmented reality
Augmented and virtual reality technologies promise new ways to design and build, and enable faster construction, improved project efficiency, and increased safety. AR/VR helps reduce design errors and eliminate wasteful changes. AR revolutionises BIM visualisation by clearly presenting data and enabling virtual collaboration. AR-headsets let you ‘see through walls’ and project virtual information into your line of sight.
Blockchain
Construction projects often involve many contractors, subcontractors, and numerous regulations and building codes, which can lead to complex challenges. Blockchain technology can be used to automate these contractual processes by creating smart contracts that are visible to all stakeholders. Like a well-oiled machine, it will eliminate disputes, speed up project delivery, and free up valuable resources.
Advanced materials
Imagine the possibilities if a structure could heal itself like our skin does after a cut? Actually, this is no longer science fiction. Self-healing materials containing special bacteria that react with concrete and limestone are already used to repair cracks and other damage in buildings. This revolutionary technique, along with bioconstruction, promises incredible opportunities for the future of construction.
Smart cities and buildings
Cities across the world are rapidly becoming smarter, leveraging wireless technologies to connect and improve infrastructure, efficiency, convenience, and quality of life for their residents. There’s various ways in which residents engage with their cities’ smart ecosystems – via their smartphones, connected cars, or smart home systems. This enables improved energy distribution, decreased traffic congestion, and streamlined trash collection.
Artificial intelligence
AI has found a growing number of applications in construction over the years. Besides autonomous machinery, it’s also used for planning and surveying, in safety and maintenance, and in the monitoring and analysing of structures. AI enables fully connected construction sites, where sensor-generated big data ensures increasing levels of efficiency and safety, and enables prediction and prevention of injuries.
Ethics
In many ways, people are no longer separate from technology. It is, therefore, important to keep an eye on the moral side of technological developments, consider the implications for the world of tomorrow, and ensure we take important ethical considerations into account. We need to determine our boundaries and voice our opinions about how people and machines should work together.
3D & 4D printing
3D and 4D printing technology enables the use of advanced and sustainable materials, making building more efficient while producing less waste. Conventional construction methods are mostly restricted to square and rectangular shapes, but 3D printing enables buildings of any type of shape. 4D printing also uses sophisticated materials that can be programmed to prompt a 3D-printed structure to shape-shift.

Een crisis of recessie raakt veel sectoren en bedrijven. Tegelijkertijd ontstaan er veel kansen. Veel nu succesvolle bedrijven zoals Netflix, AirBNB, FedEx, Disney, Microsoft en zelfs Apple zijn opgericht in moeilijke tijden. Bedrijven als Lego en Ralph Lauren hebben zichzelf tijdens de laatste crisis opnieuw uitgevonden. Ze kozen voor nieuwe markten, andere businessmodellen en digitalisering. Amazon en Tesla gebruiken de huidige crisis om nog verder te groeien. Vele bedrijven zullen deze crisis ten onder gaan, omdat ze onvoldoende geïnformeerd en geïnspireerd zijn.
