Industry Trends: What to Address and What to Look Out For

If you’re in the Chemical and Process Manufacturing business, you’re all too familiar with the barrage of bottlenecks and price fluctuations. Still, understanding these challenges is the key to overcoming them; it’s how we arrived at The Most Important Chemical Industry Issues & Pricing Strategies for 2022.

Supply Chain Instability

Bottlenecks from global conflict, shutdowns and shortages are compressing margins. Some of the added costs are passed on to customers, but manufacturers are being forced to revisit their product mix.

Raw Material Shortage

Feedstock shortages are driving up costs and limiting manufacturers’ ability to produce at full capacity. Filling orders is taking longer and creating a backlog of demand.

Rising Costs and Inflation

The soaring cost of energy and materials isn’t just making shipping and production more expensive; it’s also worsening global inflation and increasing the cost of labor.

Labor Shortages

There was already a labor shortage and skills gap in manufacturing before the pandemic, and it continues in greater numbers. Manufacturers are struggling to keep operations churning without fully staffed floors.
