CHEMICALS

A DEEP TRANSFORMATION


The global chemical industry is experiencing deep transformation. Elements driving this are for example the emergence of new, low-cost energy and feedstock appearing in the marketplace and creating the imperative for regional realignments and changing the landscape of growth markets.

It is a time of disruption, but also of grand opportunity for companies in this industry to seize the moment and create long-term value.

Increasing commoditization of products and stronger regulation is putting pressure on margins and forcing organisations to explore new routes to safe-guard profitability. At the same time, major trends e.g. in nutrition, environmental sustainability and health are opening new possibilities for advanced applications and profitable sectors. Innovative business models need to be adopted to manage the resulting operational and commercial complexities.

It is a time of disruption, but also of grand opportunity for companies in this industry to seize the moment and create long-term value.
