2. Too much focus on emerging markets has shifted the focus from its established markets and led to market share losses to competitors

3. Henkel brands have focussed more on product technology and tried to sell developed products rather than sell needed products


1. Industry reports suggest interest in eco friendly products is likely to increase thus giving Persil to leverage one of its strength especially in Europe
2.Introduction of new line of products for its existing products like Persil-gel along with Persil can increase sales


1.The slump in growth of world economy especially Europe

2. The rise in fuel cost especially due to war like conditions in Africa is a cause of rise in costs
