This positive sales trend was based on good growth in the industrial business as well as on business with end consumers in Europe and America. In contrast, sales in Asia remained below the level of the previous year as a result of weakening demand from the electronics industry.

The EBIT of the tesa Group was reduced to € 146 million (previous year: € 149 million). The EBIT return on sales reached 17.0% (previous year: 17.2%).
