After a turbulent first half, a period marked by successive increases in the prices of raw materials, Redelease has revised its growth forecasts. Currently, the company – one of the leading distributors of specialty chemicals in Brazil, with strong presence in the composites market – estimates that its annual sales volume should report an 8% growth, in contrast to the 12% estimated in January.

For Roberto Iacovella, CEO of Redelease, the result below expectations has two main causes. “The prices of the products we distribute are undergoing a rising cycle worldwide, and we are facing difficulties to fully pass on the increases. In addition, the composites market has not been having the same performance as last year”.

The Brazilian Composite Materials Association (ABMACO) announced in August that the country should process 211,000 tons of the material, which is 3.2% higher than in 2010.
