Utilities and Services
Overall, Energy, Utilities and Services industries are very mature and often characterized by heavy capital investment, a strong technical basis and traditional processes, in addition to high R&D spending and patent and licensing management.
The industry leading companies, among the largest groups in the world, have a highly international scope and presence. Today’s Energy, Utilities and Services companies face intense market and competitive pressure combined with emphasis on growth through acquisitions and alliances. Companies are challenged with commodity price volatility, environmental regulations, government deregulation and asset privatization coupled with the rise of new players, who often have different styles of functioning compared to traditional companies.
