Consolidation in our supplier, manufacturer andcustomer baseas well as in our
competitive environment will continue. Size will become a critical success factor in the
future. Consequently, we need to grow our businesses.
We expect the shift of growth from mature to emerging markets to continue. As a result,
we need to expand our already strong footprint in these markets over the coming years.
We anticipate highly dynamic market evolution, and faster decision-making by suppliers,
customers andcompetitors. In addition, further digitalization will lead to changes in our
market environment. We therefore need to continue simplifying our processes and
increasing our operational excellence.
