Industry outlook

In 9M21, Kendrion reported organic revenue growth of 19% and EBITDA growth of 34% (margin 12.7%), with both Automotive and Industrial in recovery. Kendrion seems to be coping relatively well with the current challenging market conditions (supply chain constraints and volatile order patterns in automotive). Kendrion’s targets for 2025 are for organic revenue growth of at least 5% on average per year and an EBITDA margin of at least 15%. Kendrion increasingly focuses on software and electronics development and strengthened its position via the acquisition of 3T in the Netherlands (adding 2.5% to revenues).
