What are the current trends in the chemical industry?

As the third largest industry in Germany, chemistry offers numerous job opportunities. Among the current key challenges in this area are sustainability, the circular economy and digitalisation; the latter one will have a particularly great impact on research & development, production and different business models. This is one of the results of the study on Chemistry 4.0 by the German chemical industry association (VCI) and the consulting company Deloitte from September 2017.

The chemical industry in Germany is currently expanding digital production processes and focussing on using resources more efficiently to ensure its growth potential. Until 2030, many innovations in the areas of medical applications (genome editing), industrial biotechnology, individualised medicine and lightweight automotive construction are to be expected. Furthermore, electromobility, the digitalisation of agricultural processes and waste-to-chemicals plants producing chemicals and biofuels from non-recyclable waste products will be of special interest. Which impact will these developments have on the labour market of the chemical industry?

These are the challenges the chemical industry has to master

The chemistry sector accounts for one quarter of the entire energy consumption in the processing industry. With the new EU energy efficiency directive, new saving goals related to absolute energy consumption have been introduced. At the same time, the costs for ensuring compliance with environmental and technical requirements when developing and manufacturing chemical products are rising.

However, since limiting or reducing production would lead to a drop in sales, digital processes are used to automate work procedures. However, this also entails risks. To successfully face the related risks and the challenges of Chemistry 4.0, the continuous development of staff is crucial. Comprehensively qualified chemical laboratory assistants, quality assurance managers and experts for ensuring the proper distribution of medicinal products who already possess the required skills are thus sought-after. Now all you need to do is find and recruit these experts – we would be happy to support you with this!
