Based on our analysis of our priority sectors, we have identified a number of high-potential opportunities for our regional bioeconomy.
The market pull from global industries seeking renewable raw materials, an existing composites business cluster and the suitability of our soilfor growing non-food crops together suggest our region could be an excellent home for future biomaterials industries.
Biosensors + Diagnostics
The increasing emphasis on personalised medicine as a solution to complex health conditions requires a step-change in the quantity and availability of biomedical diagnostic tests. Our region’s research and industrial strengths cut across both medical and agricultural applications.
Leading the nation for crop productivity and a focus on general cropping suggest our region’s agricultural base could easily be incentivised to adopt innovative biomass production and downstream processing methods.
