In this edition, we take a look at how digital transformation is reinventing the chemical industry.
Welcome to the latest edition of REACTION Magazine. It’s been a really strong start to the year in most places within the industry with earnings growth strong in the US, Europe and China. While there are some headwinds in thelatter — as we move into the second half of the year — due to a slowdown in the automotive and construction segments and delayed decision making while we wait for the outcome of the People’s Congress in September, the overall sentiment in the global industry remains positive — despite the seemingly never-ending geopolitical turbulence around the world.
In this edition, we take a look at howdigital transformation is reinventing the chemical industry, look at theimplications deriving from human rights reporting and explore what changes to trade and customs practices mean for maintaining an optimal strategy.
As ever, our global chemicals and performance technologies team remains active in the industry and it was great to see so many of you a tour recent chemicals road show in the US and at our 4th Annual European Chemicals Conference in Dusseldorf.
