Cover Markets Germany 1/15 | © Robbie Shone/plainpicture/Aurora Photos The statistics for the first half of 2014 deliver remarkable insights into the focuses of our clients from all over the world.
Sixty-two percent of the renewable energy projects we supported came from Asian countries; the remainder came from Europe. The majority of projects in mechanical and electronic technologies also came from Asia (68 percent), followed by Europe. Conversely, 38 percent of the projects in the chemical industry were pursued by clients from the Americas and 62 percent by Europeans. We observed the greatest diversity in the service industries, where 60 percent of the projects came from Europe, 20 percent from the Americas, 15 percent from Asia, and 5 percent from Africa.
Most investment projects came from China and the United States; however, the United Kingdom, France, Japan, and Taiwan also played an important role. Many new contacts came from Israel and India.
Our clients were particularly interested in investing in the federal states of North Rhine-Westphalia, Berlin, Bavaria, and Hessen. The largest number of projects was registered in the ICT/business services industry, followed by transportation, mechanical engineering, and health care. Electronics and nanotechnology, energy storage, energy efficiency, and environmental technologies were also popular with our clients.
