Agriculture & Agribusiness

Agriculture is being rapidly modernized in Asia. Governments, regulators, and increasingly urbanized, sophisticated populations are demanding higher quality, safer, more traceable food.

Protein consumption is growing rapidly in China, India and other Asian countries, leading to pressure for more efficient agriculture and agribusiness, with substantially higher yields. Western farming and husbandry techniques are being applied to a much greater extent. BDA has assisted clients in sectors ranging from hog production and feed in China, Vietnam and the US, to seeds, animal health, fertilizers, and agchem across Asia.

BDA understands the drivers and supply chain dynamics in these increasingly globalized, enterprise scale food industries. BDA is working on multiple projects in the sector. BDA has worked for international feed and animal production companies, and for multinational trading, fertilizer, chemical and animal health players, such as:

    Automotive

    The increasingly global environment of the automotive industry drives participants to pursue strategic opportunities far beyond their traditional home markets.

    Consolidation, global platforms, the rise of Asian OEMs as global players, and the relentless drive for cost reduction create unique challenges for automotive suppliers, who must find solutions which encompass supply chain and markets across both Asia and the West. Western companies seek to supply Asian OEMs and Asian markets, while Asian suppliers strive to access global markets and technology in order to support their traditional customers and expand internationally.

    BDA has worked for major Tier 1 and Tier 2 automotive suppliers from North America, Europe and Asia on a wide range of strategic projects and corporate finance transactions, such as:

                With the growth of manufacturing in Asia leading to increased traffic between the US, Western Europe and Asia, the Asian transportation and logistics sectors has entered a stage of rapid growth, with modernization and globalization as the next steps.

                Global manufacturers in Asia are now facing stronger competition from both Western and local competitors, necessitating cost-efficient delivery of raw materials to themselves, as well efficient delivery of finished products to consumers.
