  • Digitisation is changing the shape of the industry value chain, and chemical distributors are in a potentially precarious position. They will need to develop new digital skills to retain current customers, find new customers and develop new business models, all of which will be improved by an early adoption of digital techniques.
  • Customers of the chemical distributors will expect to move to a digital relationship, and will expect distributors to have the same cost reduction focus they themselves have. The cost to serve is set to fall, and only those that are able to develop similar cost-saving strategies will survive.
