“The return of inflation to oil-based feedstock started already last year and has recently accelerated. While we currently do not expect further dramatic upward movements in 2017, we also do not anticipate short-term easing of the situation assuming no significant changes to the global geopolitical status quo.”

The company says it will work diligently on cost containment and productivity initiatives to mitigate the cost impact of future potential raw material inflation.
