Market position

In 2019, the Industrial Trucks & Services segment achieved a 14.2 per cent share of the global market based on unit sales (2018: 14.1 per cent) and is thus still the second-largest manufacturer of industrial trucks. It significantly expanded its position as market leader in Europe thanks to a smaller decline in orders than the market as a whole. At the same time, the KION Group is a leading global producer of electric forklift and warehouse trucks. In China, it is still the leading foreign manufacturer in terms of revenue and number three overall. The KION Group is also among the leading providers in Brazil and India.

The Supply Chain Solutions segment (Dematic) is the biggest provider in the global market for warehouse automation in terms of revenue. This is supported by data from 2018 gathered by Interact Analysis, which also puts Dematic as the leading vendor in the fast-growing AGV and AMR segment.
