Construction - Building Process

Build for a better future

Urbanization and demographic change lead to a very high demand for affordable housing and infrastructure. Construction productivity has trailed that of other manufacturing industries. The potentials for new technologies in construction are unlimited: industrialization, automation, standardization and digitization will be key.

Retail - Consumer buying Process

The New Era of Retail

There is no sector that is that intensively influenced by megatrends than retail. Social trends like "Attention Economy" or "Individualization" as well as all technological trends around digization drive a fundamental transformation process within the retail sector.
