Product Development Strategy: Speed to Market

Only one in three new chemical products launches successfully. The growing complexity of regulation in combination with a need to get closer to customers when launching new performance products has created more pressure in the lab for multinational chemical companies. Access to comprehensive chemistry data and dynamic research trends helps reduce that pressure and speed products to market.
