Roblon A/S Can Miss Bright Opportunity According to BAC Company Report18 Jan 2012 • by Natalie Aster
LONDON – Crisis aftermath and debt problems in the Euro zone have a great influence on Roblon AS: the company expects modern/minor growth in the coming year despite its stable performance. As Roblon generates 96% of its revenues from exports, it should seek most profitable markets to penetrate. For now the enterprise is focused on European, Middle East and African regions, having lesser presence in North America and Asia. However, Asian LED industry indicators should be a weighty argument to expand there. On the one hand, the region displays extremely intense competition. On the other hand, its numbers are very appealing.
Asia-Pacific region leads global lighting market, supplying 33.7% of total output. Western Europe, Middle East and Africa together take 26.8%, which is less. At the moment worldwide market is estimated to be USD 85 B, which leaves USD 28.6 B for Asia-Pacific. It is quite a significant number indicating market players’ profits that will further increase. Lighting market is estimated to reach USD 159 B in 2020, and LED part will also be increasing.
By 2012 the overall LED market is expected to make up USD 10.3 B of total lighting market. In 2013 LED will have annual output of over USD 33 B, in 2016 the growth will slow down, bringing USD 57.6 B in output. So by 2020 LED market is going to make USD 94 B, which is, however, about 60% of total lighting market. Comparing to current 12.1% it is a substantial growth in just nine years, and most of it will be brought by Asia-Pacific.
Despite debt problems in Europe, Roblon performs well. October 2011 showed revenue and net income reach DKK 124.6 M and DKK 16.9 M respectively. Profit margin increased to 14% from 11% in April 2011. Annual results are also satisfying: revenue and net income grew by 11% and 17.4% respectively.
Founded in 1954 and headquartered in Frederikshavn (Denmark), Roblon AS designs, develops, manufactures and distributes products from its two business units: industrial and lighting. Industrial unit engages in production of fibre cable, offshore and TWM (machinery for twisting, winding, and rope manufacturing). Lighting unit produces lighting solutions based on fibre optic and LED technology.
