The Nutrition & Care segment produces specialty chemicals, principally for use in consumer goods for daily needs, and in animal nutrition and healthcare products. The long-term development of this segment's business is driven by socio-economic trends: Global population growth and the rise of an affluent middle class in the emerging markets are increasing consumption of animal protein such as meat, eggs, milk and fish, leading to higher demand for better quality day-to-day consumer goods such as personal care products and cosmetics. Moreover, as a result of demographic change the proportion of older people in the developed markets will rise in the long term, leading to higher demand for cosmetics, wellness an healthcare products.
