Baden-Württemberg environmental

Client

Landesagentur Umwelttechnik BW (UTBW)

Year

2023


Our mission

Baden-Württemberg is an export state –this includes innovative products and technical solutions for climate and environmental protection. The demand for such products and solutions is increas-ing worldwide. The State Agency for Environmental Technology BW (UTBW) provides targeted support to companies based in Baden-Württenberg with the internationalisation and export of environmental technology and resource-efficient solutions.

What are the biggest sales opportunities? How can Baden-Württemberg as a location and its existing competencies gain visibility worldwide? To examine these questions in depth, the UTBW commissioned Prognos to create specific sector profiles and to conduct a comprehensive analysis of the sales opportunities for the environmental technology industry.

The results

The project results show the importance and dynamics of international GreenTech markets for domestic companies. The top 10 markets include both nearby European countries and promising non-European countries. The most important export destination for companies from Baden-Württemberg continues to be the USA, while China is losing importance as a sales market.

For each lead market, the results were prepared in descriptive market profiles. These can be requested on the UTBW website:

How we proceed

Prognos is supporting the UTBW by collecting up-to-date, comprehensive, and dedicated market information. On the one hand, this includes comprehensive market data for the global, environ-mental technology industry and, on the other hand, concrete sector profiles for various leading markets in environmental technology. As part of this process, Prognos' own envigos model will be used and in-depth interviews with industry representatives in Baden-Württemberg will be con-ducted.
