$KMB stated that Latin America economic recovery would be a key driver for category growth. $KMB has big businesses in Brazil and Argentina and a recovery there could solve a lot of profit growth issues. In places like China and Russia, $KMB has strong category volume growth and it also sees penetration opportunities in many markets worldwide.

$KMB said growth rates in many categories have slowed and it is expecting category growth rates of roughly 2%. In the current competitive environment, it is tough to get price increases.
