Following the stock market listing in May 2006, Arkema has been carrying out an in-depth transformation, with a broad evolution of its business portfolio through many acquisitions and divestments, the rebalancing of its geographic exposure, and by investing in innovation for global trends in sustainable development.

Arkema has built a unique set of expertise in materials, putting together capabilities in terms of bonding, substituting traditional materials by lightweight or bio-based alternatives, or coatings.

With a leading industrial and commercial presence, Arkema operates in 55 countries with 21,100 employees worldwide, 3 R&D hubs and 151 industrial sites.

In 2020, Arkema is entering a new phase of its transformation and will reinforce its expertise now structured into three coherent and complementary segments - Adhesive Solutions, Advanced Materials, and Coating Solutions.

These three segments represent the Specialty Materials platform on which Arkema has built its long-term strategy and which accounted for some 92% of Group sales in 2023.

Beyond this platform, the Group has also set up an Intermediates segment with well-positioned, competitive and more cyclical activities, whose part in Arkema’s portfolio will be progressively reduced through differentiated strategies across businesses.

On the strength of this strategic repositioning and its more robust profile, Arkema unveiled a new phase in its evolution at the Capital Markets Day in September 2023, which will focus primarily on organic growth. This new phase is reflected in ambitious financial targets for 2028, underpinned by strict financial discipline.
