The global chemicals industry showed robust growth momentum in 2018. Will this continue, and how can chemicals companies take advantage of long-term structural changes in the industry? We'll discuss:
- An overview of key 2018 metrics, including shipments, revenue growth, and margins.
- Challenges global chemicals companies continue to face, including limited attractiveness of M&A as an inorganic growth tool, inefficient use of cash, and holding excess inventory.
- New developments likely to change the industry structure by 2030, making certain strategic chemicals segments command more market power than ever before.
Participants will review the current state of the global chemicals industry and look ahead at forces shaping the future of the industry.
With the vast opportunity offered by Industry 4.0, a Deloitte global survey explored how companies plan to invest in digital transformation, revealing several disconnects between strategy and actions.
