Outlook 2021

For the business year 2021, EMS is expecting further economic recovery worldwide. The state stimulus programmes and low interest rates will come into their full effect and provide support for consumer spending and investment activities worldwide. Continuing instability, bottlenecks and price increases in global supply chains must, however, still be expected. The shortage of semi-conductors in the automotive industry will continue.

EMS will continue to follow its successful strategy of speciality products in the main area of High Performance Polymers. Customer demand for innovative products, solutions achieving weight savings and lower CO2 emissions as well as cost reduction through metal replacement, is continually growing. This allows EMS to develop new business and further strengthen market positions. Innovative development expertise in close cooperation with customers enables EMS to quickly recognise market developments and to adapt flexibly to them.

Based on a comprehensive number of new and innovative customer projects, EMS is confident to further expand business in the next years. In order to satisfy this increasing market demand in future, EMS will invest in additional capacity increases. Over the next five years, EMS will invest more than CHF 300 million in expansion of the production site at Domat/Ems (Canton Grisons, Switzerland).

For 2021, EMS continues to expect higher net sales and a higher net operating income (EBIT) than in the previous year.
