The chemical industry
– a growth industry in transition

Exploiting potential in the chemical industry – with specialists from Hays.

In recent years, companies in the chemical industry have recorded considerable regional and global growth. The forecasts for the future, however, are less certain. Geopolitical developments, innovative technologies and more demanding customer requirements are just some of the factors that shed light on the changing business world of the future. One of the most important challenges for the chemical industry is digitisation. But the development of new business potential (e.g. in emerging markets) and the ability to use innovation to pursue business goals are also among the tasks that specialists, experts and managers in the chemical industry expect. Hays has the talent that companies need to address their internal and external transformations.

Digitisation and Industry 4.0 in the chemical industry

Products and technologies that originate in the chemical industry are often the driving force for numerous other industries. For both end customers and for companies in other sectors, the chemical industry provides innovative solutions that lead to better products and increased competitiveness in global business. Throughout Europe, chemicals are by far the industry with the largest turnover, but even this typical example of a process-oriented industry is confronted with the need for digitisation and the implementation of Industry 4.0.

The innovative solutions that are emerging from these two areas open up considerable new opportunities for companies in the chemical industry. They do, however, also present challenges. New possibilities in production and logistics, increased demands on sustainability and social responsibility, but also a shift to individualised solutions and the development of new markets are among the changes that the chemical industry will have to cope with in the coming years. The chemical industry, like many other industries, will have to rethink its business models. And this calls for the integration and promotion of new talent as well as exceptional expertise. And that's just what you'll get with Hays. Find out more about what we can offer you and benefit from our experience!
