Earnings from operations before interest and taxes (EBIT) rose to some 5.3 billion euros in 2017. This equates to an EBIT margin from operations of 6.8 percent. Mobility Solutions, the business sector that generates by far the most sales (61 percent of total sales) grew 7.8 percent, and thus three times faster than global automotive production. Its sales came to 47.4 billion euros. In Asia Pacific (including Africa), Bosch reported double-digit growth in sales. There, the company’s revenues grew 14 percent to 23.6 billion euros.
