Current Industry PE: Investors are more pessimistic on the industry, considering it's trading at a PE ratio of 7.5x which is lower than its 3-year average PE of 13.9x. Given that earnings are expected to decline by 2.5%, the lower than average PE seems justified.

Past Earnings Growth: The earnings for companies in the Materials industry have grown 30% per year over the last three years, and revenues for these companies have grown 8.1% per year. This means that more sales are being generated by these companies overall, and subsequently their profits are increasing too.
