“Demand was unusually strong in all three business areas in the first nine months of the year. Market segments with a clear sustainability profile, such as heat pumps, continued to perform well. It is also clear that changes in end consumer behaviour caused by the pandemic have had a positive impact on demand for products designed for home renovation and modernisation. An acute shortage of semiconductors worldwide also means a clear increase in levels of investment in semiconductor production, which benefits our element operations,” says Gerteric Lindquist, NIBE Group CEO.
“The recovery in the global economy so far this year has been surprising both in terms of strength and speed. Unfortunately, this pleasant yet unexpected development has resulted in severe disruption to deliveries, uncertain delivery notifications, component shortages on the part of our subsuppliers and considerable price rises. We have coped with this relatively successfully so far, which despite everything enabled strong volume growth. Due to the ongoing and considerable uncertainty related to subsuppliers contractors, however, the current quarter will also prove to be a challenging one for us. We will therefore continue to do our utmost to adapt to the prevailing situation by way of several different measures.”
“With our company philosophy and our strong product range, we are well positioned in a market that is increasingly influenced by the transition to a more sustainable and digitised society. The completed acquisitions and our focus on product development should further strengthen our position. Our internal work on efficiency along with our rigorous cost control also continue with unchanged focus.”
“Even though it’s difficult to make predictions in the current business climate, we are cautiously optimistic about 2021 as a whole thanks to our geographical spread, focus on sustainability, stable profitability and good financial preparedness for further offensive acquisitions,” says Lindquist.
