Chemicals

#

While the chemical industry is diversified in terms of product portfolios, ranging from commodity chemicals (e.g. Glycols, Aromatics, etc), semi-commodity (e.g. BCPP, Performance Chemicals, etc) to specialty chemicals (e.g. Elastomers, Agrichemicals, etc), with their corresponding market dynamics, there remains commonality in terms of the challenges faced by the industry.

iconTypical Challenges

#

Lack of structured mechanism to generate price offer guideline resulting in adhoc pricing

#

Leaving money on the table by not leveraging positive value differentiation and supplier pricing power

#

Not utilising systematic tactical negotiation to counter customer request for discount

#

Lost opportunity to capture value during significant shift in market price trends (or significant shift in key raw material price trends)

#

Under utilising insights from data (e.g. by using pricing science) to understand customer willingness to pay and further enhance deal price guidance

#

Misconception that there is little room to improve formula pricing, be it during negotiation or during execution of price formula

#

Non-structured management of contracts (e.g. enforcement of quantity terms, rebate, ceiling/floor prices, etc.)

#

Inability to connect the dots between pricing, supply chain and customer value propositions, resulting in lost margin opportunities
