Our Businesses Overview


In the beginning of 2013 Clariant adjusted its reporting segments and grouped its businesses into four Business Areas.

The strategic focus comprised two aspects: concentration on markets where outlook and growth are strong, and competitively positioned businesses with significant pricing power. This brought together similar end markets and growth drivers, yielding a clear, transparent, and efficient structure facilitating optimal service for our customers.

The four Business Areas: Care Chemicals, Catalysis, Natural Resources and Plastics & Coatings are all contributors to our attainment of the financial targets for 2015.

On the way to creating a sustainably profitable company, Clariant has met all the key milestones in 2014.
