Strategy at Each Business Division
As a global producer of silicones, WACKER SILICONES intends to continue increasing its share of high-margin specialties to generate profitable growth. WACKER POLYMERS is pursuing growth by concentrating on the trend toward value-added construction materials and actively promoting related industry standards (transformation). Using the advantages offered by VAE dispersions and dispersible powders, the division aims to replace conventional technologies (substitution) and tap new application areas. WACKER BIOSOLUTIONS is focused on expanding its biotechnology activities, with an emphasis on biologics and bio-ingredients, including foods and nutritional supplements. By 2030, sales at WACKER BIOSOLUTIONS are expected to grow by around €1 billion.
In polysilicon, the focus is on increasing the volume we provide to semiconductor-sector customers and on supporting solar-sector growth with particularly high-quality product for the manufacture of highly efficient monocrystalline solar cells (known as “n-type mono”). WACKER is among the leading manufacturers in both these application areas owing to its high product quality. In addition, our goal is to further cut production costs and bolster the output of existing manufacturing plants as well as to reduce energy and raw-material consumption.
