Industrial Clustering in Developing Regions

Clustering is not new and understanding the recent history of cluster development in developing regions provides useful insights. China has not been included in this review as the it is seen as a unique scenario, a one-party state in control of over 1 billion people, exercising absolute power. Without dwelling on or expressing any opinion of the politics involved, it is clearly an unusual case, creating a unique set of circumstances, probably never to be repeated in the foreseeable future. Instead, regions in Malaysia, The Philippines and South America have been considered.

Internet of Things (IoT)

IoT is not new. It is simply the evolution of electronics hardware and software that has been with us for more than 50 years and is the integration of sensors, wireless and wired connectivity and of course, the internet. Linking with big data analytics, cloud services and advances in computing power, IoT creates a “neural network”. The advances in system on chip designs, miniaturisation of electronics, growing capability of microprocessors and memory devices and the reduction in power consumption have all contributed to the evolution of electronics. Add in the imagination of people, entrepreneurs, and big corporates alike to find more and more applications, many of which have not been thought of yet. Others have, and have revolutionised industries, customer experience and efficiencies.

Information Technology-enabled Services (ITES)

ITES (Information Technology Enabled Services) is a catch-all term covering for the services which have emerged as a result of IT, such as remote services, teleworking, data warehousing, application development and business process outsourcing etc. The boundaries are becoming more blurred as time goes by and more “things” become connected to the internet. For example, in automotive, many new vehicles are highly connected, reporting telematics back to manufacturers and dealers, updating software, adjusting routes based on real time traffic flows, and can be considered as part of the ITeS world.

Power Generation

Energy & Power is produced from a wide range of sources. Oil and gas combined still make up the largest energy source, accounting for over 50% of all energy produced in 2015 according to the World Energy Resources 2016 report of the World Energy Council (World Energy Council, 2016). In the time since, despite the increased interest and investment (ongoing) in green energies, the growth in energy demands means little has changed, although huge investment is needed to maintain the status quo. The World Energy Council proposed three scenarios in September 2019 for how power generation is likely to develop by 2040.

Power Storage

Energy storage is an important sub-industry of the Energy & Power sector. Energy can be stored either short-term or long-term, depending on the technology used. Storage size ranges from small battery-based products for consumers to large grid-based hydro storage, which provides around 99% of all energy storage. Grid-based storage helps to balance the grid by storing surplus energy and providing power quickly when there is a sudden surge in demand. The sub-industry is undergoing much innovation, both in domestic scale storage and grid scale storage, driven by the changes in energy consumption.

Power Transmission

In the past, power transmission and distribution were unidirectional: it flowed from power plants to sub-stations and then to the consumer. Today the situation is very different where distributed energy resources (DERs) are on the increase, driven by a desire to adapt green, renewable energies such as wind and solar.

Quantum Dot Nano

Quantum Dots (QDs) are semiconductor nanocrystals that have unique optical and electronic properties, intermediate between those of bulk semiconductors and discrete atoms or molecules. These optoelectronic properties are easily tuneable through controlling the QDs size, shape, composition and structure (for instance solid or hollow). The most apparent property is its fluorescence, where the nanocrystals can emit unique colours based upon the size of the particles.
