Shining the Light on Industries

Here at Business Innovation Magazine, we are commencing a new section which we call Industry Illuminations.  Our objective with Industry Illuminations is to regularly select an industry of focus and to delve into and illuminate for our readers the types of innovations that are occurring within that particular industry.

The nature of innovation and the dynamism of trade in today’s era mean that business within any industry is less static than ever before. So as we become aware of further developments and changes in an industry, of new products and services brought to market, and of new business methods or novel processes devised and employed, we will add to our depth and breadth of coverage of our industries of focus. We will connect new articles to our relevant industry coverage.  Consequently, we envisage that Industry Illuminations will become an ever-expanding reference focal point that will grow over time in content and informational value, as well as in terms of the links that we develop to the industry sources of innovation and places of innovation deployment.

In a global marketplace, too, there are differences in regional perceptions within an industry. We aim to select a variety of regions around the world and explore a variety of country-specific or region-specific perspectives.   For example, some countries are natural suppliers of some products or services. For the same product or service, other countries are more natural buyers. This contributes to differences in regional perspectives of industries, also enriched by cultural preferences and requirements. Additionally, while some nations may seek innovation in one area, another nation, or the participants within it, may see advantage in placing their innovative efforts elsewhere.  These variations create a world-wide richness and vitality to the development of businesses, of commerce and of trade.

In our increasingly globalised world, the changing nature of economies and of trade over time contributes to a business environment of abundant dynamics, and perceptions can change over time.  We will seek to explore and elucidate in our Industry Illuminations section, all in the context of innovation, not just the different perceptions from a regional perspective but also the changing face of those perceptions as individuals and businesses eye opportunity, tap the resources at their disposal, and jostle for new competitive advantage in both domestic and international markets.

As a reader, no matter where you live, what your background or what industry you may participate in, we hope that you will enjoy our progressively-expanding informational exploration of innovation-focused Industry Illuminations as a section within our overall Business Innovation Magazine.  We also encourage and invite interaction between ourselves and industry participants within industries of innovation so that we can provide a progressively richer, more informed and increasingly valuable contribution to the communication of matters innovative to an ever-wider audience.
