ALPLA as a regional economic player
Over the past four years, ALPLA has experienced growth in particular in Asia and in the region Africa, Middle East and Turkey (AMET). The Americas have remained stable or have experienced a slight downturn. Growth was relatively strong in Central and Eastern Europe in the reporting period. Even so, we do not see this region as being a decisive growth market any more in the future as we have already achieved a high degree of market saturation here. We anticipate strong growth of more than 10 per cent per annum in Asia and the AMET region.
