If the year 2020 were to be summarized for the chemical industry in a single word, that word would be “disruption,” and in a good way. There’s no doubt that the pandemic has thrown back our lives by a year, but amid this chaos, some companies have also surged, like the makers of disinfectants and diagnostic reagents. But many others—primarily those exposed to automotive, refining,
and construction end-markets—struggled. However, whether gearing up to meet sudden spikes in demand or struggling to survive, in both cases, the pandemic raised everyone’s awareness of the fundamental importance of technology in the chemical industry.
In 2021, the focus is thus on modifying structures and processes of their digitalized workflow by connecting across their front, middle, and back offices so that information flows easily between each. The connected chemical companies are also adopting emerging technologies such as robotic automation, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and natural language processing at great length. After all, these technologies eventually give its stakeholders access to all appropriate information for decision-making, planning, and support. At the same time, many regulatory bodies are now doubling down on proper environmental, social, and governance (ESG) strategies. Strong ESG practices are becoming an essential prerequisite for employee recruitment, brand enhancement, and investor funding in this sector as well. This is pushing many chemical companies to take a digitalized approach while adhering to their ESG strategies. Incorporating digital ESG tools, in this backdrop, is proving to be a competitive advantage for many businesses.
