We are delivering towards our “Winning together: 15 by 20” strategy by creating a fit-for-purpose organization for a focused Paints and Coatings company, contributing to the achievement of our 2020 guidance.

For the remainder of 2018, we expect positive developments for Decorative Paints and Performance Coatings, excluding Marine and Protective Coatings where market conditions are still challenging. Demand trends differ per region and segment.

Raw material inflation is projected to continue for the remainder of 2018, although at a slower rate than during the start of the year. Robust pricing initiatives and cost saving programs are in place to mitigate the current challenges.

Please refer to our website for more information on our ambitions and the strategic focus areas.
