Outlook for 2022
Kemira’s revenue in local currencies, excluding acquisitions and divestments, is expected to increase from 2021 (EUR 2,674.4 million).
Kemira’s operative EBITDA is expected to be within a +/- 5% range of the operative EBITDA in 2021 (EUR 425.5 million).
Assumptions behind outlook
There continues to be uncertainty related to COVID-19 and the inflationary environment. However, Kemira’s end-market demand in both segments is expected to grow following forecasted global economic growth. The outlook assumes the COVID-19 pandemic situation to remain under control and not having a significant impact on Kemira’s end-market demand. The outlook also assumes no major disruptions to Kemira’s manufacturing operations or further significant supply chain disruptions. Strong inflationary pressures are expected to continue, particularly in H1 2022.
