Key Trends in the Chemical Industry Value Chain

1

Solving the Digital Dilemma

Competition is causing leaders to embrace digital technology. Across the integrated supply chain, automation and digital technologies already contribute to efficiency; now entire business processes require a re-think. A holistic approach led by executives with the skills to work across functional boundaries and integrate data along the entire value chain will enable agile companies to compete.

2

Sustainability

It’s time to embrace sustainability as a way of being. Consumer pressure and increasing legislation leave the industry with no other option. Whether its responding to climate change, air pollution or calls for a circular economy, a sustainable approach has become a condition for remaining in business. Handling the consequent complexity requires leaders with values that go beyond the bottom line.

3

Innovation

The chemical industry needs leaders who can inspire, understand trends and disruptive change, and who are not afraid to fail. Fast, open innovation through collaboration, novel processes, and AI are just some of the elements that will redefine the future for chemical companies and downstream processors.
