- Mobility market: market outperformance of 4.8 points
Global automotive production fell by 4.5% in the first quarter in a still difficult context with tensions over electronic components, the Russian-Ukrainian crisis and health restrictions in China. DELFINGEN outperformed the market by 4.8 points and by 13.8 points excluding the geographical mix effect of its sales. The decline in automotive production is particularly marked in Europe (-18%), where the group generates 53% of its sales, with the temporary shutdown of many carmaker plants, notably in Germany.
At the end of March 2022, revenues at constant scope of consolidation were up slightly by 0.3% (+3.5% on a reported basis). The effect of exchange rates at the end of March was positive by €2.7 million, mainly due to the parity (€/$).

- Industrial Market:
Industrial Market sales were up 2.7% at constant exchange rates and consolidation scope (-6.6% on a reported basis), with a negative impact (-13.7%) of the change in consolidation scope following the sale of the "Technical straps and belts" activity in June 2021.
The effect of exchange rates at the end of March 2022 is favorable by €0.7 million.
Uncertainty is weighing on the markets with multiple factors such as the situation in Ukraine and supply chain disruptions.
According to S&P Global Mobility (formerly IHS Markit) estimates published in April 2022, global automotive production should reach 80.6 million units, up 4% compared to 2021.
DELFINGEN remains very cautious about market expectations, however, given its strategic positioning in the protection of vehicle electrical wiring, its leadership and its global presence, DELFINGEN expects to outperform the market by 2 to 3 points.
DELFINGEN is adapting to these extreme economic conditions while at the same time seizing the growth opportunities linked to the market transformation towards cleaner and more responsible mobility.
