  24. Capacity vs. Demand in Europe Position of PEGAS Supply vs. Demand proportion creates healthy market competition • The annual capacity increase in the European spunmelt nonwoven market between 2003 – 2007 was approx. by 72k tonnes • In 2007, 49k tonnes were added in Europe. In 2008 and 2009 capacity is expected to increase on average by 39k tonnes • End market is growing by 5-6% p.a. (by 28-30k tonnes in spunbond hygiene demand), the difference is as usual balanced by less than 100% utilization of capacities and European exports Structure of Capacity Increase is favourable for PEGAS • 50% of new capacities to be added in 2008-2009 represent unattested technologies • 37% of new capacities to be added in 2008-2009 represent new entrants into the industry • Structure of new capacities to be added in 2008- 2009 is highly advantageous for PEGAS and represents new market opportunities for growth
