the company’s global healthcare unit. “We have a corporate relationship with Microsoft in terms of some of their cloud com

“We want more than double our business in China in the medium term,” said Wyant. “Our expectations are high for so
me reasons. One of which is the emerging middle class, so there are more opportunities for food safety.”
Ecolab, a $15 billion company in a $125 billion market, has a market share of around 11-12 percent globally.
“We see enormous opportunities here in China along with the underlying economic a
nd societal trends, such as the emerging of the middle class, water scarcity issues and the aging population, an
d our business is in line with the government’s commitment toward a more healthy and beautiful China. The ma
rket is huge and we are a good fit and well-placed to grasp the opportunities here,” said Wyant.
According to her, the company has to focus to succeed in China.
“It’s a massive country. It’s rife with opportunities, and it’s got a very aggressive and vibrant customer set, but als
o a competitive set. That’s why we say we really focus on three big opportunity areas where we think we bring a
dvantages that match China’s economic opportunities and its vision for society,” she added.
