OIL & GAS
With the growing global demand for energy, the oil & gas sector is seen as one of the fastest growing in the world, in both supply and demand.
Oil & Gas is a hub of investment opportunities driven by the challenges that the market still needs to face in the upstream (exploration), midstream (transformation of raw materials), downstream (logistics) sectors and oilfield services.
The international market has seen a rapid growth in demand and investments in exploration and production. Natural gas, as an example, has recently undergone a revolution due to the competitive production of unconventional gas reserves, with the use of new technologies.
Countries displaced by years from the competitive movement with low yields now see their economy jumpstart with exploration and drilling rigs and production units.
Considered an agile and ever-changing Market, oil & gas need consultants skilled in the constant search for investment opportunities and expertise in the supply chain industry.
Progress is tied to solid investments in infrastructure.
The worldwide demand for infrastructure raises the financial contributions in the industry for the highest levels of the global economy.
The deployment of modern and efficient transport systems, from roads, railways, airports and ports, through the investments in communications and energy, boost economic growth and attracts the interest of international investors.
Many governments provide incentive programs for private investment in public infrastructure. Countries in Latin America, such as Mexico, Colombia, Brazil and Chile have undergone positive changes in their laws and new regulations provide a high return on private investment. Together the four countries have become a major focus of infrastructure investment in the world and this market opening should address the main barriers to growth in these countries.
The success of investment in the sector depends on the vision, technical skills and government policy, linked to skilled consultants with leadership, project and knowledge of the financial return on concessions.
Agribusiness is effective and competitive. It is a prosperous, secure and highly profitable investment.
The market for agribusiness has extensive areas of operation, ranging from agricultural commodities to applied research in biotechnology. This gives the industry the level of a major investment in the world economy with high potential for expansion and opening of new markets.
Within this scenario, the Brazilian market has gained notoriety. Few countries in the world have reached a level of growth and profitability in international agribusiness trade as Brazil. The country is a world leader in the production and exporting of various products, and became internationally known as the granary of the world.
Agribusiness represents 20% of GDP (Brazilian domestic product) and in 2014 grain production is expected to reach 191 million tonnes, with a view to achieving 248 million in next decade. With these numbers, Brazil in 2030 will be responsible for the marketing of one third of the products consumed worldwide.
Opportunities for long-term investments in agribusiness grow more and more. Government studies show a promising scenario, with investment in new technologies tied to profitability.
Concerns about energy efficiency and the environment put renewable energy sources at the forefront of investments in the electricity sector.
Known as a strong growth industry of accelerated evolution, renewable energy sources of power generation give the world market high financial return.
There are many factors driving this market. However, the growing demand for infrastructure projects in various countries, such as in transportation and oil & gas, contribute to this expansion. Entrepreneurs from around the world seek the best opportunities in integrated solutions and investment in this market in clear rise.
Inside the world scenery, the biggest investments in renewable energy are concentrated in Europe, North America and Asia with China. However, Brazil, accompanied by the opening of the Latin American market, is gaining attention as a possible global energy generator. Good prospects in the Latin market make the scenario increasingly promising.
Qualified consultants analyze projects from the perspective of technical and financial viability, investment security and socio-environmental sustainability.
Forecasts point to an effective growth of the mining sector in the next 20 years. The ore consumption is increasing worldwide and driven by the demand for iron and steel products used in large projects, such as infrastructure.
The global mining market remains effectively expanding. Countries in a position to supply ore currently have come across with a mature market and rising prices, thanks to the global economy with emphasis on emerging countries.
The global growth in demand for minerals, combined with a tight supply of products, especially iron, forced a total investment in the sector with a significant increase in the price of minerals.
Although iron ore is present as the major product in the industry, investments exceed its deposits and this includes other metals that multiply the possibilities of mineral production and the diverse possibilities of economic drive.
This positive worldwide growth scenario brings prospects of a solid mining market, accompanied by stable or high prices of commodities, to meet the giant economies and those that are on the rise.
Even in high expansion, mining is a peculiar industry and it faces governmental requirements and limitations. Investments in this sector need to be made by experienced staff, knowledgeable in the political, business and industrial characteristics.
