Building a Biomass Product Roadmap for Your Company
India is a country with a rich biodiversity – from the tiny microalgae all the way to massive banyan trees. Over 100 different crops are grown in the food and cash crop categories alone, with countless varieties of biomass being used for other diverse purposes – fuel, cosmetics, fragrances, health & wellness, religion and more.
All the above imply a significant potential for businesses keen on building biomass based value added product businesses.
The list of product possibilities within biomass is quite exciting.
While some of the product categories such as biofuels have been in the limelight for a while, many others –bioplastics, bio-based chemicals, bio-based waste water treatment, and the high-potential nutraceuticals market – are showing excellent growth without actually showing up on the radar!
With the Indian consumer becoming more aware and more eco-conscious, and with consumers in developed countries’ export markets even more so, and with many central and state governments increasingly concerned about environmental degradation, a range of bio-based products and solutions are set to become attractive business opportunities.
At the same time, there are challenges – in the form of lack of awareness, high costs for some products, and technology uncertainties for some others.
Given this combination of high future potential and diverse challenges, industries and businesses keen on investing in the Indian biomass products segment have the following questions: What should a business like ours with a keen interest in this segment do? How should we strategize their entry into this dynamic segment?
This is precisely where EAI’s division BioBiz, with its excellent understanding of the entire biomass market and its contours, can be of immense help to your company – to help you chart out an effective strategic biomass business roadmap for your company.
Given the nature of the sector, an effective strategy will differ significantly from one company to another. An effective strategy should not only build upon your tangible strengths and assets (physical plant and machinery, distribution, customer base…), but also intangible assets (your company’s vision, your company’s core competence areas within your operational value chain…).
Such a plan should also take into account the trends in the entire ecosystem of biomass in specific and sustainability in general – for instance, the growth of other forms of “clean energy” such as natural gas, competition from traditional bio-based products such as paper, and the effect of crude oil prices on the prospects of products such as renewable chemicals.
EAI’s BioBiz team can assist you in assimilating all of the above to provide your top management with a strategy that is optimized for your firm’s strengths, visions and aspirations.
