Driving Agile and Resilient Supply Chain and Manufacturing Operations through Digital Transformation

Vote of Thanks Ajit Kulkarni, Vice President Presales - Asia Pacific, AVEVA


The Indian chemicals industry is a dynamic and growing sector, adding around 7% to India's GDP and contributes around 15% to manufacturing output. The sector is expected to reach US $304 billion by 2025, fuelled by the rising demand from various end-use sectors such as pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, FMCG, automobiles, textiles, paints, and plastics.

India's demographic driven growth can potentially take the chemicals sector to US $800 million – US $1 trillion by 2040. However, the sector also faces numerous significant challenges, which could prove to be a stumbling block in achieving these impressive projections. These blocks can be overcome, to a certain extent, by encouraging Indian chemical companies to deploy Industry 4.0 and digital transformation in a comprehensive and 360 degree manner.

Leveraging data analytics and artificial intelligence (AI) can enable data-driven decision making in the chemical industry. This includes predictive maintenance, production optimization, and supply chain management, leading to improved productivity and profitability. Also, integrating automation systems and IoT (Internet of Things) devices can lead to increased efficiency, reduced costs, and improved safety in chemical manufacturing. Encouraging companies to invest in these technologies can help accelerate the digital transformation process. Moreover, a suitable collaboration between chemical companies and technology providers can accelerate digital transformation across all divisions within the chemical manufacturing ecosystem.

Join the panel discussion to find out how to implement these initiatives with agility and achieve sustainable growth by accelerating the adoption of Industry 4.0 and digital transformation.
