Review the corporate strategy of AB Electrolux:  found here: http://group.electrolux.com/en/category/about/

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)
