Call for Partners: Study on Composites in Buildings and Infrastructure
In November 2016, AZL in cooperation with AVK will start a Joint Market and Technology Study on “New Potentials for Composite Technologies in Buildings and Infrastructure”. Companies along the value chain of the composites as well as buildings & infrastructure market are invited to join.
Buildings & Infrastructure are – comparable with the transportation sector – markets with enormous potential for lightweight materials and related technologies. Moreover, they will continue to grow. The new construction of existing Buildings & Infrastructure components but also the rehabilitation and renovation of them will play a decisive role.
Within a Joint Market and Technology Study, the AZL will identify new potentials for composite technologies in Buildings & Infrastructure. Drawing on technical expertise, but also a well-grounded knowledge of market specific information, AZL is determining where and with which products, materials and production technologies new business opportunities will open. Therefore, AZL is creating and rating new scenarios for high potential applications and will provide necessary information to support product and service development of participating companies.
The 6-months study is designed as a joint study involving players along the value chain. This approach allows participants to benefit from the knowledge of all study partners and experts who are involved into the project. Study participants will be a direct part of the study and will be able to influence the progress according to their specific demands.
In two prioritization workshops, AZL together with the study partners determine the key segments as well as ten technologies/applications with the highest market potential which will be investigated in detail. The study will comprise application analyses of 12 market segments, investigation of 100 applications, technology analyses of 25 highlight components and 10 detailed business cases. Besides requirement analyses for materials and production technologies, new concepts for efficient profitable production technologies are developed including cost engineering analysis.
This approach has been successfully implemented within a branch independent joint study with 34 participating international companies along the entire value chain. As a result from this first study, AZL set up its actual Partnership Network, various joint and bilateral development projects on the identified challenges as well as topic-related industrial workgroups with regularly semiannual meetings.
The Buildings & Infrastructure study is open for all companies along the value chain of the composites as well as buildings & infrastructure market. AZL and AVK partner companies can participate at a reduced fee.
