Four decades ago, the role of chemicals and materials in the auto industry was fundamentally reshaped as the global oil crisis spurred the need for lighter-weight and lower-cost components. Today, new converging trends, including shared mobility and autonomous and electric vehicles, could even more profoundly affect how, and of what, vehicles are made. We'll discuss:
- Shared mobility – new materials demands and business models.
- Autonomous vehicles – rethinking a century-old design.
- Electric vehicles – dramatic changes under the hood.
- Approaching the future of mobility through an advanced materials system lens.
Participants will gain insights about the challenges and opportunities that the new mobility ecosystem could create for chemicals and specialty materials companies.
