Dow will focus on financial discipline as it invests for long-term growth. A key focus of its strategy is “integration and diversification” which it will achieve through geographic balance in Europe, Asia Pacific and Latin America, offsetting the continued weakness in North America. Dow will also continue to strengthen its position in several key industries through its market-facing business model.

 

The company states that it will strategically grow its position in basic plastics and chemicals through joint ventures.

 

Dow will continue to implement its strategy to improve long-term earnings growth and earnings consistency. It states that while it believes macroeconomic conditions are expected to remain healthy, volatility in feedstock and energy costs adds uncertainty to the outlook. Dow will retain its financial discipline while increasing its investment in targeted growth opportunities, principally in its performance businesses and in emerging geographies.

 

Dow Chemical will integrate its acquired Rohm and Haas business into the newly formed ‘Advanced Materials Division’ and will be headed by Pierre Brondeau.

 

With annual sales of $54bn (2010), Dow has approximately 50,000 employees and 180 manufacturing sites in 37 countries.
