Market forces are driving the progress -
Life Science Innovation in Agriculture

ACATIS Value Conference (online), June 5th 2020, Dr. Lutz Krafft, Equity Partner ChemAdvice GmbH

Dr. Lutz Krafft is giving a lecture on development of agriculture and the impact of chemical and biotechnological innovations on productivity gain.



Despite of all yield increases, farmers get stuck in a difficult economic situation - caught between the oligopoly of global agronomical raw materials trade and global producers of fertilizers, pesticides and seeds. The market forces are driving the productivity progress with the result of lower prices and in some cases of inacceptable stress of the eco system.

Already today, innovations in genetics have a tremendous impact on global agriculture and will also in future fuel further productivity gains. Taking advantage of the crispr-technology, cheap genome sequencing, and metagenomics to utilize microbial diversity as well as artificial intelligence to analyze genetic information are seen as crucial drivers of innovation.

Implications of Corona Crisis on Global Chemical Supply Chains and New Demand Scenarios

Dr. Kai Pflug, Shanghai, Senior Expert - Chemicals Markets & China, ChemAdvice GmbH

Note: This paper is a progression of an article published in the magazine CHEManager in April 2020.


Covid-19 will likely have a substantial impact on many strategic and operational issues of chemical companies. In particular, global chemical supply chains will be reevaluated, with the goal of reducing the risk resulting from reliance on single, often distant suppliers. Furthermore, Covid-19 may lead to demand shifts that need to be incorporated into the product planning of chemical companies.

Dr. Volker Schlüter, Managing Partner ChemAdvice GmbH, and Stefan Treiber, Managing Director candidus Management Consulting, recommend to not only react to the current situation, but to think beyond it.

How chemical companies are now minimizing their supply chain risks and consequently taking advantage of market opportunities

Dr. Volker Schlüter, Managing Partner ChemAdvice GmbH


Currently, many companies in the chemical and life science industries are faced with special challenges due to the corona crisis. In addition to concerns about the health of their employees, the supply of the company with raw materials and intermediate products must be ensured. Furthermore, product sales projections on the demand side must also be reassessed. Therefore, it is now necessary to develop flexible action plans and to adapt to new business scenarios in an agile manner.
