Rubber and Plastics continues to be a growing industry
The rubber and plastics sector continues to be a growing industry full of innovation and forward-thinking people. With Industry 4.0 now becoming mainstream, those attributes will be even more important in the coming years. With climate change and resource depletion being hot topics around the world, renewably sourced polymers are starting to look increasingly appealing. The benefits of plastic are undeniable. The material is inexpensive, lightweight, and easy to make. Those qualities have led to a boom in the production of plastics over the past half century, and this trend will carry on as plastic production continues to increase over the next decade. With the nature of the world’s global economy, understanding how to get an edge in today’s connected world is more important than ever. Efficiency is still a top priority, especially given the global nature of the competitive landscape, customer price sensitivity, and ever-shrinking timelines for new product introduction. If you’re serious about tightening up business and operations efficiencies, now is the time to connect your enterprise and examine your processes—from the shop floor, all the way up to the top floor.
