Integral innovation optimizes price willingness.

Welcome in the industry portal.

Our consultancy cluster “Industry” stands for the automotive industry and the sectors Transport, Communications, Chemicals and Investment goods.


How to get office equipment which would normally break down to operate self sufficiently? How to get cost leading Asian mega-trucks to create a quality offensive Made-in-Germany and how to develop new distribution areas by using a scaled distribution strategy? This and more in our industry portal.


Comprehensive Innovation optimizes willingness to pay.

In the past many of our colleagues concentrated on consultancy work which dealt with Production, Purchasing and Logistics. Nowadays, more and more frequently, we also come into contact with them when it is a question of Strategy or Marketing.


Many clients decide consistently for the THOMSEN GROUP International Strategy Consultants, in short TGISC®, which has stood for innovations for more than 30 years. Perhaps it is because we consistently contradict some of the opinions held among our consultancy peers. One example from the automotive industry: The market constantly demands new innovations for which the customer is no longer willing to pay. We regard this as fundamentally wrong. We have provided the proof repeatedly. Innovation is not only safeguarding the future of the company just like modern national economies, but also creates better prices. Provided innovation is understood on an integral basis and in practice is not implemented any less comprehensively. 

More on the automotive industry.

Precisely because the automotive ndustry, irrespective of whether it is a question of a manufacturer or a supplier, has to deal with excess capacity and frequently falling profits in a worldwide competition, achieving adequate prices is of special importance. The opinion of consultants is welcome that these prices are not achievable, backed by a comparison of household income with the price of never before more reliable, faster as well as safer vehicles. In the above comparison they can be bought for less and less money.


Admittedly, the critical question whether an entire industry failed to exploit its opportunities, is totally ignored. Why should legislation be required for an industry to take a leap in innovation, which consequently is hardly in the position to be involved in this discussion; this is the generally held opinion, previously, the easier way was selected. Until then, the products had been selling well.


Is it not much more attractive for a whole sector, if an innovation leader has a really contagious effect? Not to mention the attractiveness of the innovator with shareholders, employees and, above all, its customers.


Perhaps it will be you.


There is definitely great potential in the question of new driving concepts but perhaps the identification of unrecognized topics will achieve growth. We are looking forward to your call.

More about other industries.

Other industries such as machine and large plant manufacturers have other industry-specific topics to deal with. For us the sustainable changes of the sectors play just as important a role as those of the companies. The role of China, for example, cannot be reduced to global sourcing, but demands far-reaching answers, even in our central special field of Innovation and Market Strategy Solutions.

More about other industries (transport and traffic).

Other industries like machine- and plant unit engineering companies have other industry-specific issues to tackle. Though for us the long term change in the industries are just as big of an issue as those in society. China’s role, for example, can’t be diminished to global sourcing alone, but also requires wide ranging answers in our specialty of innovation and market strategy solutions. The keyword here is, for example, advancing and integrating green technologies, a topic currently especially being pushed in China.


Downplaying the potential of a technology leadership through states within the ASEAN region certainly doesn’t do reality justice. Especially in these newly emerging urban agglomerations and megacities, a result of the development of the global population, for example will primarily in these regions require innovative solutions in the transport and traffic sectors for example.


Those who have experienced the extensive use of public transportation in Asia know this requires a different logic in the solution itself. Implementing a telematic approach relies on end user acceptance. The acceptance rates will significantly differ worldwide. But forcing automation plans within these areas stands and falls with the acceptance of this technology innovation. 

The innowait system identifies potential, and especially acceptance, quite often eluding the typical clustering of user groups, thus baring the potential opportunities future innovations already hold today. But fundamental fields affecting purchasing decisions will also determine the future of transportation. In Germany, for example, trends are by now becoming foreseeable in this respect, revealing the rejection of compulsion of ownership – the increasing acceptance of car-sharing models is one of many indicators for this – directly impacting the traffic volumes to be managed.


This consumer rationality, however, is not in sight in the regions where the growth of population will be having the most dramatic impact. In fact, in these regions the newly emerging middle classes in these regions define themselves through ownership – your own car is definitely among the individual acquired rights considered desirable.


Or let’s take the long-term development of urban growth, pressuring rural areas to act. Where in cities young people are losing interest in private transport (and the automotive industry must be horrified), mobility can become a problem solver away from the cities, politically just as much as individually. TGISC® already pointed this out about two decades ago. Now public subsidies are being discussed in this field of topics.

More about chemistry.

The growth rate in the chemical industry will significantly decline. The global equilibrium in the industry will shift. The increasing pressure of competition by countries pushing into the market, such as China, put the industry in entry duress throughout Europe. Indicators clearly point at market consolidation. The volatility of the customer market permanently increases the challenge of making the right decision. More than ever, this mélange is then increasingly about focusing strategic core competencies than the widest possible distribution of risk by expanding business activities. These are equivalent to operative diversification, and consequently undermine the possibility to identify tangible, long-term potential opportunities. Situational process optimization isn’t a viable potential basis aimed at the future. Focused business concentration on a few growth fields requires identifying the individual FutureAssets®. The change in society as a whole shows where things are headed. Increasing environmental awareness is the forerunner for a sound field of activity with enormous potentials for demand. The worldwide demographic change requires new production materials. Keyword megacities. The increasing agglomeration of urban centers produces enormous emissions. Thus new materials will be required to e.g. also optimize noise control. At the same time this area of tension increasingly sees the challenge for health-enhancing materials. The worldwide ecologic change and the increasing scarcity of fossil fuel resources preserve areas of operation in the field of production of organic raw materials, for example biofuels, dynamics. In LiveResearch® the end consumers’ fundamental desires show fields of future growth. The day to day, lifestyle-driven aestheticizing of everyday worlds requires intelligent plastics to flexibly meet the high standards of digital natives in consumer electronics. In the future products made from organic chemicals will define our everyday life. Bendable displays made from polymers are only the beginning. But innovation with the innowait system is never the reduced search for technical feasibility but always for the innovation which will already fascinate today, thus work.
