Case Studies

A Major Electronics Company in Asia Pacific

Assessment of Patent Landscape; Competitor Bench-marking; Evaluation of Partners

The Challenge

A key company in the Asia Pacific wanted to assess film technology for emerging electronics technology through patent landscape assessment, competitor intelligence and partner for collaboration.

Project Objectives

  • Patent landscape assessment/patent analysis
  • Competitor benchmarking
  • Evaluation of potential partners for collaboration
  • Technology trends

Our Approach and Work

Frost & Sullivan conducted interviews with organizations working on film technology for the electronics technology, firstly to understand the trends and positioning of the competitors in the market under evaluation. This section also suggested partners for the technology. A patent analysis was performed, organizations involved in similar technology being suggested as potential partners in developing a technological ecosystem.

Outcome and Business Impact

Frost & Sullivan delivered a detailed report describing technology/market trends, applications, competitor profile, and potential partners for collaboration for technology/product development.

One of the Emerging Economies

Assessment of National Innovation Ecosystem, Policy Formulation

The Challenge

One of the governmental agencies involved in national transformation programs identified that their nation was not in line with other emerging economies and was not scaling as per the existing roadmap.

Project Objectives

The governmental agency commisioned Frost & Sullivan to undertake a study of national importance wherein the consultant was expected to understand and evaluate the innovation roadmaps, plans, policies, programs, trends along with certain targeted nations. Post evaluation, Frost & Sullivan was supposed to assess and reformulate policies, revamp innovation ecosystem, design a mid-term strategic vision.

Our Approach and Work

  • Frost & Sullivan offered the client a list of top emerging economies in the proposal phase after preliminary analysis, with the objective of eventually conducting a comparative study of the National Innovation System.
  • Frost & Sullivan approached the project objective of national competitiveness assessment using the double diamond analysis to identify and evaluate best practices in innovation – research & development, commercialization.
  • Frost & Sullivan came up with an innovative entrepreneurial model, devised a new funding model, innovation ecosystem and planned development of new clusters.
  • Frost & Sullivan also assessed policies, programs, grants etc and suggested modifications in existing policies by identifying policy loopholes and evaluation against best practices.

Outcome and Business Impact

  • Economic upliftment resulting from suggested changes in the National Innovation System.
  • Identification of best practicves for research, development and commercialization.
  • Implementation of policies with suggested changes. These aim towards innovative entrepreneurship.
  • Identification of local talent pool towards successful launch of national transofrmation programs.

A Major European R&D Organization sought to identify opportunities for an in-house developed novel monolithic MEMS and IC integration platform

Business Opportunities for a Monolithic MEMS and IC Platform: Strategic Evaluation

The Challenge

The project also involved analyzing key global developments related to Pre & Post CMOS processes, Wafer-level integrations, through Silicon-Vias and 3D integration of ICs and MEMS.

Project Objectives

Identified key stakeholders who are involved or strategically interested in pursuing a monolithic integration of MEMS and IC processes.

Analyze global emerging technology trends related to hybrid and monolithic integration. Identify technology and market challenges as well as drivers for the new technology.

Our Approach and Work

  • Frost & Sullivan conducted primary research with industry experts, stakeholders, and leading researchers. A comprehensive patent and literature review was carried out to develop the study.
  • Frost & Sullivan also conducted SWOT and stakeholder analysis for the monolithic MEMS and IC platform.
  • The recommendations on the commercial viability of the platforms as well as possible commercial collaborators were highlighted.

Outcome and Business Impact

    • Frost & Sullivan team analyzed several CMOS and MEMS foundries on six different key metrics for partnership evaluation.
    • The novel technologies challenges and advantages were identified and were discussed with the stakeholders. An analysis was carried out which provided a clear set of recommendations based on the findings. A final report was delivered outlining the findings.
