Macro trends impacting Scania and our industry

Macro trends impacting Scania and our industry

Economic fluctuations

Economic cycles cause volatility, shifts in demand and currency fluctuations, and are affected by crisis. Scania can mitigate the effects of short-term fluctuations in demand and ensure long-term growth by increased flexibility and efficiency while building greater capacity.

Access to energy

More sustainable alternatives are emerging to replace fossil fuels in order to meet energy demands, such as renewable fuels, hybridisation and electrification. Scania aims to reduce CO2 emissions by 25 percent for our inbound traffic in Europe between 2010 and 2018.


Almost 60 percent of the global population will live in cities in 2030 (most in emerging markets). This creates demand for innovative and resource-efficient mobility solutions. Scania provides cities with efficient, high-capacity transport solutions with low environmental impact.


Connected vehicles are part of the next wave of innovation. With our leadership in this area, Scania is well positioned to provide intelligent mobility solutions. One example is remote diagnostics which enable greater customer profitability through quicker repairs.
