Management Discussion
  • •Net Sales—Net sales in 2020 were $2,510, a decrease of 10% compared with $2,804 in 2019. Overall, COVID-19’s global impact on demand across various industries and markets in 2020 was the main driver of the decrease in net sales. Pricing negatively impacted sales by $182 due largely due to raw material decreases contractually passed through to customers across many of our businesses, as well as unfavorable product mix and continued competitive market conditions in our base epoxy resins and specialty epoxy resins businesses. Volume negatively impacted sales by $70 primarily related to volume decreases in our North American and Latin America forest products resins businesses and our North American formaldehyde business driven by COVID-19’s negative impact on global demand. These decreases were partially offset by volume increases in our specialty epoxy business driven by strong global demand in wind energy. Foreign exchange translation negatively impacted net sales by $42 due to the weakening of the Brazilian real and the Chinese Yuan against the U.S. dollar in 2020 compared to 2019, partially offset by the overall strengthening of the euro against the U.S. dollar in 2020 compared to 2019.
