After premiumization in Detergents led to strong growth in detergent sales and margins in the last decade, the Personal Wash and Dishwashing segments show considerable promise going forward. The high-margin Discretionary portfolio was under pressure in FY21 – resulting in lower than the usual 12% adjusted EPS growth) – and is expected to face significant pressure in FY22 as well (albeit less than in the previous year). Nevertheless, the trajectory of premiumization over the medium term is evident. Additionally, synergies from the GSKCH business would play a big role in the resumption of strong earnings growth going forward
