How will the chemical industry embrace “Industry 4.0”?
While we are not in the midst of a revolution for the chemical industry, the term “Industry 4.0,” refers to creating a digital manufacturing enterprise (DME). DME is popularizing digital tools. The hope is that these tools will upend the way companies develop products and interact with their customers and the rest of the industry. What does it mean for your organization?
The path forward
The chemical industry is entering a phase where every chemical company should likely decide what they want to be. They can be:
- Material manufacturers: This will not be an even playing field, as there will be the natural owners (with feedstock, asset, and balance sheet advantages) and differentiated commodities companies, both of which will present challenges to the new incumbents.
- Solutions providers: These companies will change their approach to focus more on market needs, but this category could also include companies from the digital space.
Companies should assess where they stand today on the chemical multiverse map to arrive at an understanding of the needed strategic changes they can make to put themselves on the path to lasting success.
