Moving Forward In Automotive

Driving Advancements in Automotive

The automotive market is changing rapidly to keep pace with consumer expectations for more sustainable and innovative vehicles that deliver the critical requirements of safety, efficiency, performance and connectivity. In the search for more sustainable options, the industry continues to advance the technologies for next-generation, low-emission internal combustion engines (ICE) as well as electric and hybrid vehicles (EVs/HEVs). In the search for innovative features, AI, sensor technology and 5G connectivity are making autonomous driving a reality.

Just as the automotive industry has broadened its focus from traditional ICE vehicles to EVs, HEVs, autonomous vehicles, and beyond, our focus has broadened as well. The vehicles of tomorrow will require more versatile and dynamic advanced materials that enable these next-generation systems. With our experience and technical expertise, we are uniquely positioned to meet those needs.
