General market condition and demand

SSAB has operated in tough market environments as many industries such as the mining and construction machinery have been stagnant or in decline. Heavy transportation has been one of the best developing segments over the past year.

Customer demand for lighter and more sustainable products is driving increased use of high-strength steel. SSAB steels offer the possibility to build lighter products with a longer lifecycle in a way that reduces component wear and lowers fuel consumption, increases lifting performance, and enables higher payloads. Market share of high-strength steel is increasing in all markets, although, the penetration rate in emerging markets is considerably lower than in mature markets.

SSAB’s Strengths
  • World’s widest product portfolio
  • Close collaboration and joint projects with customers result in more fast-paced development and increased competitiveness
  • Well-known and highly-respected product brands
  • Long-standing customer relations
  • Competitive lead-times and service on a global scale
  • Steel service centers and own stocks in about 160 locations in 50 countries
  • Combination of expertise in developing steels, design and know-how on application areas.
