Electronic Products and Markets

Discussion

Electronic Products and Markets - Which markets for Europe?

  • Current trends
  • Commodity vs. niche markets
  • Application domains
  • Differentiating factor

 

  • Current trends

Identified trends: cloud computing, mobile convergence, immediacy (IoT), smart systems everywhere, next generation wireless, security standards and energy efficiency. What will be the role of European industry in these near future developments? What is the role of fabless/IP providers/system design?

  • Commodity versus focus on niche markets

How will Europe capitalise on niche markets and ensure its presence when niche products become a commodity? Can Europe regain a share of commodity markets?

  • Application domains

What is the role of volume of production and the increasing costs of design?  And how to address bottlenecks? What is the European demand in advanced components and systems?  Which societal challenges will drive demand in Europe? Is there a role for public procurement? Does Europe need an application pull (to answer societal challenges) or technology centred (focusing on technology strengthening) strategy/roadmap?

  • Differentiating factor

Where does/can Europe make a difference? How can policies support growing and new markets benefiting/relying on electronic components and systems?

Since a large number of sectors are already there trying to cut their slice of market, the world of consumers are furnished with more options than ever. So in order to expand one's business to deal with bureaucracy it is extremely important to preserve and process data in the World Wide Web. Resources like Cloud Computing, online crowdsourcing and media content strategy services are here to stay. Now what the system providers and designers must do is to ensure reach to each and everyone online. Just as Mark Zucherburg decided to visit India to expand his network in the remote villages of India. The key is not the product, its accessibility. For example, in the vast domain of education needs to implement more and more online video tutorial packages instead of selling on-campus courses.
