About DSM Engineering Materials- Creating better, more sustainable materials

DSM Engineering Materials is a world leader in high-performance and increasingly sustainable thermoplastics used in automotive, electrical & electronics, building & construction, medical, food packaging and consumer goods (to name but a few). Our materials enable lighter, stronger and more durable products - which in turn makes people’s lives safer, more convenient and healthier – and all while helping to tackle carbon emissions.

Perhaps the greatest trend driving our markets is the move towards mobility and connectivity - on the road, in the home and office, and on the street. We’re seeing new standards in design and usability coupled with our planet’s pressing need to cut energy use and avoid waste through circular design thinking.

Take ‘thinovation’ - the trend for creating smaller, lighter, greener and safer working parts in electronic devices. Today, our materials create components like the tiny connectors that give mobile phones their incredible functionality
