Chemical companies are increasingly looking at digital transformation through operations improvement and business growth


The global chemicals industry has been experiencing four major trends during the current volatile global environment to sustain profitability:

  • Adopting Industry 4.0
  • Managing transitions and deriving value from M&A and capacity consolidations.
  • Achieving and sustaining cost leadership through increased focus on driving high performance across the value chain - improving operational efficiency, optimizing on cost, asset utilization and reliability.
  • Doing business with customer relevance in the new age digital platforms and achieving sustainability goals.

Industry 4.0 for Manufacturing – The transformational play is in the area of improving the productivity of chemical plants by various smart manufacturing techniques:

  • Predictive Asset Management – Maximize asset utilization and minimize unplanned downtime
  • Process Management and Control – Minimize product variability and improve quality
  • Safety Management – Monitor assets and processes on a continuous and real-time basis

Industry 4.0 for Digital Supply Chain – Companies are thriving for complete traceability & transparency across procurement and supply chain management through the digital supply chain.

  • Insights-driven decision-making through analytics is helping making supply chain smarter and cost effective.
  • Automation initiatives in SmartBots and RPA are driving out costs across the sourcing and procurement cycle.

Digital Workforce – Digital Workforce platform with API enabled communication to effectively manage the company’s talent pool, which will become increasingly critical for success in global and just-in-time economies.

Customer Experience – From new revenue models by forward integrating into customer’s operations using the chemicals or using data services to augment existing revenues or enabling advanced analytics for selecting of materials, chemical companies are moving to digitalize the material selection experience.

Digital R&D Platform – Innovation platform on cloud built on open source technologies, powered by big-data, AI/ML that will enable partners (vendors, academia, customer, consumers, regulators, etc.) to participate and contribute to R&D. Blockchain enabled IP and patent management will be the key with a real-time mechanism that will improve faster time to market and improve working capital allocation.
