Sika limits its dependence on particular markets and customers through targeted diversification based on various aspects. On one hand geographic diversification in construction is of great significance, since construction business tends to be locally oriented, and markets in distant global regions in part demonstrate contrary development.

On the other hand diversification among customers – no single customer yields more than 1.5% of Sika sales – in the Construction as well as the Industry Division also has a stabilizing effect on business. In order to cushion economic fluctuations as far as possible, Sika is in addition active in its core areas – Construction and Industry – not only in new developments business but also in the largely cycle-independent repair and maintenance business.
