Automation will Propel Industrial Growth
The Chemical industry is the most diverse industry. Verticaly chemicals have been categorised into three sub-segments, viz. Basic, Specialty and Knowledge. The Basic segment comprises of inorganic & organic chemicals, where the focus on automation is to drive volumes, cost reduction and environmental compliance. The Specialty segment comprises of dyes & pigments, paints, adhesives, additives, lubricants etc. In this the level of automation is currently low, and is driven by quality and reliability.
