Market trends and Kendrion products
Sustainability is at the core of many of the company’s products and innovations. Kendrion exploits the specific expertise and experience available within the company as a means of increasing safety and substantially reducing emissions and fuel consumption. Kendrion is inspired by the desire to secure a sustainable and ‘green’ environment for generations to come.
Kendrion currently estimates, on the basis of an internal product classification, that at least 20% of the Industrial products and at least 40% of the Automotive products contribute to energy savings or lower emissions for our customers or end users.
The megatrends can be interpreted in terms of a number of subtrends. The scarcity of natural resources and climate change, for example, are resulting in the transition to more sustainable energy sources. Urbanisation and the rapid growth of the population are leading to increased mobility needs for both people, energy and goods. Areas in which many people congregate are governed by increasingly stringent, building and transport system safety and environmental requirements. Population growth – and in some regions the ageing population – are accompanied by increasing healthcare requirements. These are accompanied by the trend towards continually smaller, lighter and faster products. The product portfolios of Kendrion’s business units are tailored to these current trends.
