In the IMF’s World Economic Outlook report, it stated that the pace of global activity, particularly in manufacturing, has weakened. Escalating trade and geopolitical tensions have created uncertainty about global trade and international cooperation, resulting in a lack of business confidence. Global GDP growth in 2019 is at 3.2%, down from 3.6% in 2018. In recognition of this downturn, Oerlikon initiated sales push and cost-saving programs in 2019, which helped the company sustain its 2019 performance at around the prior year’s level. The measures were implemented across the business and countries. They are intended to improve efficiency and reduce cost base, while ensuring that the company’s business is safeguarded for the medium to long term. Today, Oerlikon operates in 37 countries and places a stronger focus on business in China, Japan, South Korea, India, France, Germany, Russia and the United States, which together represent 71% of Group revenue.
