Industry outlook

The US defence budget environment looks promising for Avon as it increases army troop numbers, while order activity has picked up closer to home. Avon is increasingly focused on higher price sophisticated mask systems. Meanwhile, the supportive dairy market environment has allowed the positive growth trends in the division to continue globally. With the group’s recent years’ investments also set to drive further growth over the coming years, we maintain our view that Avon has the market position, product portfolio and strategic ambition to further accelerate its growth through organic and inorganic means.
