The car of the future

Autonomous driving, alternative engine types, online communication, adaptive headlights, multiple design options for interior lighting, free-form displays – the car of tomorrow will set new standards in terms of functionality and aesthetics. With our futuristic concept car, we are venturing a look into the future and are pointing out the areas where our materials can be used.

New OLED plant up and running

Wall-sized displays at airports or train stations that provide sharp images from any viewing angle? Rollable displays for video walls, or flexible and bendable smartphones? A vision that can soon become reality thanks to OLED technology. To take part in these developments and to further strengthen our market position in the OLED materials business, we have commissioned a new OLED materials production plant.

Strong second quarter

"We again achieved everything we aimed for in the second quarter. That applies to both the Sigma-Aldrich integration and the development of new medicines. Strong demand for our products and dynamic market developments gave our Healthcare and Life Science businesses additional tailwinds. Since particularly in Healthcare our performance in the second quarter was so good, we have decided to lift our forecast for the full year."
Stefan Oschmann, CEO and Chairman of our Executive Board

The car of the future
How can we have less congested roads, fewer accidents, cleaner air, relaxed driving, and more free space in overcrowded cities and still remain mobile? The cars of tomorrow are to meet these expectations by using the possibilities of autonomous driving, alternative engine types and digital connectivity. Our high-tech materials are also being used to build the car of the future. That’s why we are focusing on the future of mobility at our “Displaying Futures” symposium. The theme of this year’s symposium is “Driving Forces”.
