Forecast 2018

For the business year 2018, EMS is expecting positive development of the global economy. The globally improved tax environment will support the economy. First signs of an overheated economy can be noticed however, and inflation expectations are rising.

EMS is confident with regard to development of its own business. The successful strategy of worldwide growth with specialty products in the area of high-performance polymers will be continued. Focus will be put on continually exploiting market potential with new, innovative products and applications as well as on further strengthening market positions. Continually rising raw material prices will make sales price increases unavoidable. EMS is establishing efficiency programmes in preparation for a possible change in the economy.

For 2018, EMS again expects net sales and net operating income (EBIT) slightly above previous year.
