A double digit growth rate above 10% in Western Europe and above 20% in Eastern Europe
is expected for 2013, though this growth rate will decrease by 2017. While the growth rate
is higher in the Eastern region, sales are much higher in the more mature Western Europe

experienced healthy growth in those countries, reaching a double digit figure in billions
of Euros.
