LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The adoption of technology by farmers has developed new challenges for agriculture chemicals manufacturers. As for the agrichemical supply chain, the industry is still struggling with synchronizing the entire work process and meeting the ever-growing demands for the chemicals cost-effectively.
Infiniti Research recently assessed the agriculture chemicals market and notes there are two major problems faced by the manufacturers of agrichemicals, one being disruptions in the supply chain and the other is changes in customer needs. Infiniti also found that end-to-end services is an important area which needs focused planning by the players in the agrichemical market.
Industry experts believe that by switching to digitization and investing in Industrial Internet of Things (IIOT) technology, the fallbacks of the agrichemical supply chain can easily be countered.
“IIOT and predictive analytics facilitate better redressal of supply chain woes. As predictive analytics makes use of machine learning to decipher patterns in the unstructured data, it becomes easier for market players to respond to changing demands from the customers in an automated manner,” says Infiniti Research.

Agrichemical companies can gain better ROI by aligning business and digital strategies as digitalization can help in decreasing production costs and increasing yields leading to sustainable growth.
Currently a majority of manufacturers are using digital technology on the front end alone, however, to gain long-term results, experts recommend the use of digital technology in strengthening the back-end mechanism as well. The supply chain is the major back-end mechanism which needs to be highly agile to deal with the fluctuating demands from the customers’ end. A digitally-enabled supply chain is sure to leverage the changing market dynamics to the company’s advantage.
