Case study on “sustainable chemistry”

Using our innovation analytics software platform, we investigated companies, markets, technologies, and experts in the area of “Sustainable Chemistry”. We identified a relatively large number of recent VC investments, as well as substantial public R&D funding.

In terms of patents, China is a powerhouse.
Here is a short summary of what we found:

  • Relatively large number of recent VC investments.
  • Substantial public R&D funding of SMEs in sustainable chemistry.
  • Strong increase in Scientific Publications, starting in late 2013.
  • Only moderate coverage of the topic in Industry and Technology News.
  • China is a powerhouse in sustainable chemistry patents
