Visual Capitalist Explores the Material World

Published

on

VC Elements is a brand new channel brought to you by Visual Capitalist which uses data-driven visuals to bridge the gap between the global trends shaping our future and the raw materials powering them.

In particular, we’ll be unearthing the following trends: Markets, Energy, Technology, Urbanization, Electrification.

The channel will look at the untapped potential of the material world, specifically looking at:

Investment.
We’ll shine a light on the investment opportunities surrounding this space.
Dependency.
Everything we own is either grown or mined. Raw materials are at the core of our day to day lives, but how many of us actually know where these everyday objects come from?
Scarcity.
Natural resources are the backbone of the industrial economy, but the current rate of consumption is putting increased pressure on them.
Efficiency.
The world will need to invest $240 billion over the next five years to meet growing metals demand alone. We will create educational content, examining the latest sustainable technologies, and the raw materials powering them.

What content can I expect?

Below are some of the pieces recently published on the channel covering topics including markets, technology, energy and urbanization.

The world’s population is set to reach 8 billion people this year. As we hit this milestone, many questions about the knock-on effects linger:

  • Do we have enough food and energy resources for growing populations?
  • What transport and living infrastructure is needed in growing regions, and how will further urbanization affect our planet?
  • When could global population growth stop, and what effects would this change in trend have?

These questions only scratch the surface of the changing world at 8 billion people and the effects of these changes.
