European chemical companies adapt to changing times

Although the industry across Europe has recovered from the worst of the downturn, challenges remain, including high feedstock and energy costs, regulatory mandates, overcapacity and increased competition from the US and Asia. For many European chemical companies, continued success will depend on a carefully calibrated set of strategies that involve innovation, geographical expansion into overseas markets, and a rigorous focus on cost, efficiency and ongoing innovation.


Is your chemical company operating effectively?

Has your company ever missed a good opportunity because you could not respond fast enough? Have analysts been challenging your performance or cost structures? Do you know what your customers value and are you clear on how effectively you provide this? Considering these and other questions can help chemical companies determine whether they are operating effectively.
