Bosch is investing EUR 500 million (USD 680.5 million) per year in industrial networking and sees 2014 revenue in the upper end of the expected growth range. The investment corresponds to more than 10% of the group's annual revenue. In addition, the company raised the revenue forecast for 2014. Full-year revenue is expected to grow at a rate in the upper end of the 3% to 5% range predicted in the spring. In 2013, revenue increased only 3.1% to EUR 46.1 billion, as the strong euro and the weak performance in the Industrial Technology unit weighed on the result.
