January 10, 2019

With the increasing pressure caused by new entrants in the market, lack of innovation, and diminishing opportunities to differentiate against competitors, the chemical companies are on the verge of disruption. Thus, chemical companies are realizing that, in order to address the next wave of opportunity and enter new markets, they will have to shift from a historic “operations-driven” focus to more agile service-driven businesses. But the question major players in the chemical industry come across is, how to gain a competitive advantage? Well, this is where a marketing strategy comes into play. A robust marketing strategy is a marketing plan that helps businesses keep tabs on target market segments, analyze their target customer, forecast demand-supply shifts, track emerging market trends, regional market developments, and provide insights on the potential impact of changing factors on business segments for gaining a competitive advantage in the market. So, let’s find out how Infiniti’s marketing strategy solution helped a chemical company gain a competitive advantage in the market.
