Electrification is key to mobility and to making people’s lives more sustainable. New and revolutionary technologies are driving the biggest transformation the automotive industry has seen in the last hundred years. The car of the future will be primarily electric, as well as connected to its environment and self-driving, in addition to other new types of drive.

The market for e-mobility will continue to grow unabated in the coming years. According to the German government’s National Development Plan, there will be around 2 to 3 million electric vehicles in Germany alone by 2025. To achieve the EU’s goal of climate neutrality by 2050, experts say at least 30 million zero- emission vehicles will need to be on EU roads by 2030, with three million public charging stations and up to 1,000 hydrogen refueling stations.

But what does this radical upheaval mean for you? Does an increased production volume also present you with new challenges time and again? Henkel will be pleased to develop individual automation solutions for you according to your requirements. Are you also wondering how you can make your production processes more efficient? As process experts, we ensure perfect interaction between our dispensing technology and the sealing system selected from our product portfolio.
