New applications, efficient processes, plant expansions

Research for the world of tomorrow

How will the world look in five, ten, twenty years? What kind of products will future generations need? Global teams of innovators at Bayer MaterialScience are seeking answers to these questions, developing new applications for materials and thus shaping the future. At the same time, the company is constantly working to improve its production processes and investing to upgrade its global production facilities, which are the backbone for innovative products.

Innovation & Investment
A finger on the pulse: Bayer experts examine a plastic film for the black panel effect in cars.

Innovation is extremely important at Bayer MaterialScience – in keeping with the Group mission “Bayer: Science For A Better Life.” About 900 Bayer MaterialScience employees around the world are active in research and development.

In order to continually innovate, we keep an ear to the market to learn what customers and consumers want and need – today, tomorrow and beyond. We are also open to inspiration and ideas from outside the company, and implement them in close collaboration with customers, other industry sectors and academia.

But the best research and development efforts are worthless without efficient production processes and state-of-the-art production plants.  Bayer MaterialScience invests systematically in their improvement, maintenance and expansion.
