Annual Report 2019
The Future of Living and Building
No matter where in the world buildings are being constructed, quality requirements are rising. More emphasis is being placed on efficient construction methods, sustainability and high-tech construction materials. Every construction project offers an opportunity for improving the quality and sustainability of the buildings that surround us – and that is as true for new buildings as it is for maintenance of existing structures. In recent years, WACKER has consistently geared its product portfolio toward these trends, making it an important partner for the global construction industry. The products we supply for construction and housing applications alone generate €1.7 billion – roughly 35 percent of Group sales.
Building on Sustainability – with Silicones and Polymers
The complexity of the task makes climate protection an ambitious mission. WACKER’s innovative construction chemicals contribute to more sustainable buildings and homes.
Real Shelters from Desert Heat
Whether townhouse or apartment, what Dubai’s buildings must withstand is the weather. It’s the heat and humidity of its 40 °C-plus summers that builders first have in mind in this metropolitan area.
Building Taller, Faster and More Sustainably
When in Singapore, look to the skies: Residents typically live in one of this country’s high-rise buildings of 30 floors or more.
Mortar for Millions
India is set to surpass China as the world’s most populous country by 2027. The fact that the housing market is facing huge demand poses challenges for construction companies and urban planners.
