Review the
corporate strategy of AB Electrolux:  found here:

As the social and demographic trends continue to
evolve so do the opportunities afforded to Electrolux. The most significant
demographic shift globally is the growing middle class in Asia, which includes
families with incomes between US $6,000 and US $30,000. It is estimated that by
2030 there will be 3 billion more people in the global middle class than there
were in 2013. (Ernst & Young, 2013)

Correlated with rising incomes worldwide, home-ownership has also increased at a substantial rate giving rise to increased
demand for consumer durables such as refrigerators, washing machines, and
dishwashers. (Electrolux, 2013)
