DuPont Innovation Addressing Major Global Market Trends
Date:5/28/2009

ons that meet customer and market needs, while providing value for our shareholders and society," Kullman added, noting that global population growth is the common denominator driving demand. According to the United Nations, the world's human population has grown from about 2.5 billion in the mid-20th century to more than 6.5 billion today, with projections rising to an estimated 9 billion people by mid-21st century.

Increasing Food Productivity. To accommodate the rising demand for food and dietary protein by the world's population between now and 2025, global food production will need to double on virtually the same amount of land currently in production, Kullman said.

DuPont, one of the largest producers of soybean and corn seed in the world, is using biotechnology to develop insect-resistant varieties and hybrids to improve productivity, quality and yield and to accelerate breeding and rate of genetic gain. "We expect at least $2 billion in incremental sales to be generated over the next five years, with more to come after that," Kullman said.

Decreasing Dependence on Fossil Fuels. As economies modernize in emerging markets, Kullman said DuPont is anticipating increased demand for renewable energy sources by developing products and technologies for photovoltaics -- with sales expected over $1 billion by 2012 -- and advanced biofuels, like biobutanol and cellulosic ethanol. DuPont is also focused on developing more energy-efficient products, including a new generation of DuPont(TM) Tyvek(R) materials with improved performance in weatherization and energy efficiency.

Protecting Lives. "The company's safety expertise and highly differentiated product offerings position it well to service the basic need for people to feel safe and secure at work and at home," Kullman said. "We're working on next-generation DuPont(TM) Kevlar(R) and Nomex(R) products for military, life
