Research & Development
Innovative ideas lead to trend-setting technologies.
Innovations and a systematic alignment to specialty chemicals play a key role in our drive to be the best-in-class specialty chemicals company. In view of this, we have taken an important step to pave the way for the future: In 2016, we restructured our innovation portfolio to focus on six growth fields, which are assigned to our growth engines in highly attractive markets with above-average growth rates.
The aim is to generate more than € 1 billion in additional sales in these areas by 2025. The six growth fields focus on highly attractive markets which Evonik can optimally serve with new products and solutions based on its core competencies. The six growth fields are:
Sustainable Nutrition: Establishing additional products and services for sustainable nutrition of livestock and people
