2016: Look Ahead - Colour & Materials

Progressive technologies in 2016 will focus on innovations that have embedded functionality to enhance performance. This is further emphasised by initiatives that are pooling their knowledge to develop new technologies and responsible manufacturing practices.

A key example is Launch – a collaborative enterprise started this year, involving major global brands and innovators including Nasa and Nike. This cross- pollination of industries and commercial collective thinking will produce effective technologies and resourceful solutions to manufacturing issues. This area is definitely one to watch in 2016.
