Detergent sales and margins have shown strong growth over the past decade, following the premiumization in detergents, with the personal wash and dishwashing segments promising much further growth. The high-margin discretionary portfolio was under pressure in FY21 – resulting in less than the usual 12% adjusted EPS growth) – and is expected to face significant pressure in FY12 as well (albeit lower than the previous year). Nevertheless, the trajectory of premiumization in the medium term is clear. Additionally, the GSKCH business synergies will play a major role in resuming strong earnings growth going forward
