The electric vehicle (EV) revolution is rapidly gaining momentum, with the number of EVs on the roads expected to skyrocket over the next 15 years. According to a joint report from Eurelectric and Ernst & Young, 130 million EVs will hit Europe’s roads by 2035
We expect the potential in commercial and industrial solar in Africa to be significant, with the World Bank estimating a required cumulative investment of $90bn by 2030 for solar mini grids for Africa, making it a significant opportunity for investors to support the development of renewable energy while generating attractive returns.
We can see Space Tech investment surpassing $7.5bn this year, despite the downturn across many other sectors in the market and the global space industry is expected to reach $1.4tn by 2030, and these current levels of investment will have to persist and accelerate to reach that goal.
Concrete is the second most used material in the world after water, and it is responsible for producing around 8% of global greenhouse gas emissions, making it the world’s third-largest carbon dioxide emitter. This has led to an urgent need to decarbonize the concrete industry in order to meet the UN’s net zero. Our latest blog explains why we think the race towards a greener $300bn concrete market is already underway, with investment in the industry expected to grow at double-digit rates.
Investment returns can suffer due to currency devaluations and inflation, but some sectors can still generate value. In Egypt, we evaluated key factors that drive resilience in this macro environment and identified non-bank lending and payment sectors as key winners that could see $500m in transaction value in 2023.
Fashion as a whole accounts for 10% of CO2 emission, with an astounding 65% of the 30+ billion fashion items produced ending up in landfills, either due to overproduction or users discarding them. This is where AI can have a substantial impact, from eliminating overproduction to optimising inventory management.
Our ability to expand energy storage capacity is one of the most pressing issues that will determine whether this defining ‘transitional’ decade is a success. Annual investment worldwide into promising energy storage companies is currently running at only $9bn in 2022. As the crucial nature of this market becomes more and more clear to investors, there needs to be an exponential increase in investment.
AI will become one of the biggest enablers of a truly sustainable fashion industry. This viewpoint is based on how AI transcends all the segments of the fashion value chain (downstream, midstream and upstream) and the amount of inefficiencies (and resulting emissions) it can eliminate. AI spending in retail is expected to be a $19 billion market by 2027, up from an estimated $7.3bn today (approx. 3x increase in absolute amount).
Smart flexible grids were initially anticipated to save up to £40bn in the UK alone over the next three decades. We believe these savings are likely to be several times this number given the improvements seen over the last few years.
Over the next 5 years, we expect $10bn of investment in circularity as the resale market opportunity grows to $218bn by 2026.
EV charging software looks set to eventually become a $50bn+ market, helping drive the global economy even faster toward net zero
The deep freeze in tech is upon us with the markets seeing significant decline since November 2021. We are at a level last seen in 2020, as if 2021 never happened. Before the downturn, the strongest growth companies faced unprecedented choice in the types of investors they could attract due to a growth in the size of private capital amongst different investor types, looking for growth deals.
Africa is on track to be the world’s largest education market by the end of the decade, creating challenges as well as unprecedented opportunities for those working to deliver the technology needed to reach the continent’s youth.
Aggregators play a key, and rapidly growing role in unlocking this potential by connecting smallholder farmers and offering platforms that give them access to efficient markets.
