Market position

In 2021, the Industrial Trucks & Services segment had a 12.8 percent share of the global market based on order intake measured by the number of units (2020: 12.1 percent). The rise is primarily attributable to the healthy growth recorded across all product segments in the APAC region. Measured in terms of units sold in 2021, KION continues to be the number one in the European market for industrial trucks. In China, it is still the leading non-domestic manufacturer and number three overall in terms of revenue.

The Supply Chain Solutions segment (Dematic) was the biggest provider in the global market for warehouse automation in terms of revenue in 2020. This is supported by data from 2021 gathered by Interact Analysis. Global market share was 9.6 percent. Studies by Interact Analysis in 2020 also ranked Dematic as the leading vendor in the fast-growing AGV and AMR segment and in the automation of micro-fulfillment centers. Broken down by customer sector, Dematic has achieved particularly strong market share in the general merchandise, grocery, and apparel sectors.
