Our transformed and diverse portfolio of businesses is strategically aligned to emerging geographies and end-markets where megatrends are driving global growth and higher, less volatile earnings. Across the Company’s portfolio, integration, diversification and leading technology are enabling Dow to capture growth synergies and deliver higher earnings.
Solutions At Work
- Strategically aligned with key end-markets and megatrends
- Driving growth synergies across divisions, particularly Performance Materials and Performance Plastics
- Expanding presence in emerging geographies to capture growth
In the past several years, we have taken steps to strengthen and diversify our portfolio and build leadership positions in attractive, high-growth segments. Since 2009, we have reduced our volatility by divesting single-digit margin businesses, generating $8 billion in revenue. During the same period, we acquired businesses with specialty products that offer differentiation and higher margins, most notably Rohm and Haas.
Historical Volatility in EBITDA
Our participation at different steps in the value chain enables us to benefit from both material and technical integration and helps drive synergy across operating segments. As a result, we have a portfolio that can mitigate risk while capturing value on multiple fronts.
Strategically Integrated for Profitable Growth
Dow’s broad geographic footprint enables us to capture advantage in rapidly growing areas of the world. We operate 197 manufacturing sites in 36 countries and are selling to customers in 160 countries. Our proximity to our customers gives us the ability to react quickly, innovate and take advantage of opportunities wherever they may be.
