The power and water segment accounts for 15%, the food industry 15%, and the pharmaceutical industry 15%. These segments stand for 75% of our business, and are normally not too exposed to market volatility. Further, Lennart Evrell commented: -The growth factors of Munters are quality and productivity development, the general development and globalisation of the service industry. More increasingly we are experiencing a demand for improved indoor climate and energy consumption related to air conditioning. The environmental issues are becoming more and more important to Munters' growth. Munters had a good year 2000 with strong growth in all product areas in region Europe and Americas, and experienced a good demand in region Asia.
