The interaction of new technologies, demographic trends and the opening up of global markets are changing the way innovation affects economic value creation. Nanotechnology and alternative energies are key drivers of innovation that are creating new growth areas which span different industries. This has prompted the analysts to screen a wide range of sectors worldwide for innovative business models, to identify major trends and to examine which companies offer suitable longer-term opportunities for investors.
Innovation is both a component and a driver of economic growth. Most of the innovations that promote this growth and create new business opportunities focus on technologies which, in turn, generate other technologies. The recent acceleration of economic growth in the new emerging countries and in Europe illustrate the impact that technological innovation has on the economy's growth rate. Innovation-based investment opportunities are now more numerous than ever.
