The current trends in the chemical industry

As Germany's third largest industry, the chemical industry is one of the most important employers. The key challenges in this area currently include digitisation, sustainability and the circular economy. Digitisation in particular is changing research and development, production and business models in this industry as well. This was reflected in the "industry portrait" from the German Chemical Industry Association (VCI) in August 2022.

The German chemical industry is currently expanding digital production processes and focussing on using resources more efficiently to ensure its growth potential. Many innovations in the areas of medical applications (genome editing), industrial biotechnology, individualised medicine and lightweight automotive construction can be expected by 2030. Electromobility, the digitisation of agricultural processes and waste-to-chemicals plants for manufacturing chemicals and biofuels from previously non-recyclable waste products will also be of special interest.

These are the challenges that the chemical industry has to deal with

In the future, digitised processes will drive the automation of work processes in industrial chemistry. However, they also carry risks. The continuous development of personnel is crucial to successfully deal with the related risks and challenges of Chemistry 4.0. This requires extensively trained chemical laboratory technicians, quality assurance managers and experts in the safeguarding of pharmaceutical supplies who have the appropriate qualifications.

You will find these skilled workers together with our recruiters, who are specialised in the field of chemistry and know this market inside and out.

Jobs in the chemical industry

The chemical industry is in a state of change. Traditional chemistry jobs are disappearing and being replaced by new ones. Digitisation is also an integral part of the chemical sector, and the demand for engineers, IT specialists and scientists is increasing.

To ensure that your company meets this challenge and contributes to sustainable development, environmental protection and energy efficiency with qualified skilled workers, we will support you in your projects with specialist personnel.
