for Chemical R&D
Leverage data, analytics and technological capabilities to help chemical companies choose the right chemistry targets and de-risk the New Product Development process from regulatory pressureGet started
Product development strategy: Speed to market
Only one in three new chemical products launches successfully. Further, increasingly complex regulations combined with a need to get closer to customers when launching new performance products has put more pressure on the lab for multinational chemical companies. But ready access to comprehensive chemistry data and dynamic research trends helps significantly reduce that pressure and speed products to market.
