Commodity and innovation

In an increasingly globalized sector, chemical companies face a dual challenge: maximize the efficiency with which they produce established commodity products, while at the same time developing new and often personalized propositions for the next generation of customers.  Digital transformation in chemicals becomes critical in meeting both these challenges.

New business opportunities demand new business practices


The future of the chemical industry is materializing. Companies must meet the ongoing demand for commoditized bulk products. In parallel, they are developing new value-added propositions, often with innovative service elements, and often in specialist target markets.

The pressure to drive down costs across the supply and distribution chain and improve efficiency in the chemical industry in unrelenting, but in the chemical industry, for both established and innovative product lines, there can be no compromise in meeting the highest standards of compliance and environmental responsibility.

The digital impact on the chemical industry is direct and far-reaching.
