Welcome to the November issue of ValueNotes Connect.

Today’s popular mega-trends are almost invariably linked to technology. Common buzz-words are artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, IoT, data, analytics, “smart” objects, the gig economy, electrification, digitization, and so on. Technology is of course, a major disrupter – but there are other non-tech trends that are definitely “mega”! Amongst these, one of the more neglected is urbanization – and more particularly, the need for urban infrastructure.

By 2050, two-thirds or more of the global population will live in cities. And by 2060, buildings sector floor area will double, adding more than 230 billion square metres in new construction, according to a report by the UN Environment and International Energy Agency. While this provides huge business opportunities, the possible impact on the environment could be catastrophic.

The building and construction sector contributes nearly 40% of energy-related CO2 emissions. Several countries around the world have pledged that all buildings (new and existing) will operate at net zero carbon by the middle of the century. With much of the world’s building stock in need of renovation, could the renovation market be the next big focus area for the construction industry?

Do have a look at the survey we conducted with dealers of tiles, sanitary ware and bathroom fittings – to gauge their sentiment about the future of the building product sector.

As always, we hope you enjoy reading our newsletter, and we look forward to your comments.

Best regards.
