Business review BASF Group

BASF significantly increased sales and earnings in 2011. The economic upturn of 2010 continued into 2011, although growth momentum slowed in the second half of the year due to uncertainty in the financial markets. Growing demand was accompanied by increasing raw material costs, which we were largely able to pass on to the market. Sales and earnings were negatively impacted by the months-long suspension of our oil production in Libya.

Compared with 2010, sales increased by 15.1% to €73,497 million. Income from operations improved by 10.6% and amounted to €8,586 million.
