The topic of risk management and the role of digitalization were the focal points of the current CHEMonitor survey, which was concluded a week before the accident at BASF on October 17. For the German chemicals industry, insufficient data security, geopolitical crises and a lack of information about market changes represent the largest potential risk. At the same time, site conditions in Germany are rated more positively than ever. The site factor of digitalization only performs moderately well, however. The study results show a dramatically increased signifiance of digitalization in the German chemical industry.
The study will be provided in German only.
