ROYAL DSM, a company in the health, nutrition and materials business, aims for its sustainable and innovative solutions to support the key trends shaping the future of China.
The Dutch company sees its state-of-the-art material products and solutions to help the four trends — economic prosperity, innovation, sustainability and vitality — that are key to China’s future, Roeland Polet, president of engineering plastics at DSM, said.
DSM is showing its connected car solutions which integrate all parts of the vehicle under the hood and inside the passenger compartment at the four-day 32nd International Exhibition on Plastics and Rubber Industries which ends tomorrow in Shanghai.
China now leads in developing electric vehicles worldwide, said Tamim Sidiki, global marketing director of electronics at DSM, adding that there will be convergence of cars and electronics in the future.
“You can see that now the automobile and electronics industries are converging. The car of the future will basically be a smartphone, as a lot of electronics will be integrated into cars,” said Sidiki, “Chinese and Silicon Valley companies are driving this global trend. And to make this happen, we need good materials and the right materials.”
DSM will also respond to the evolving needs of environmentally-conscious Chinese consumers by developing green and sustainable products.
