Sogefi: markets and competitive positioning
Sogefi is one of the top producers of suspension components, filters and air and cooling systems in terms of revenues. The group confirms its ranking as the number two operator in Europe and number one in the Mercosur area in suspension components and as one of the market leaders at global level for original equipment engine systems. It is one of the top operators in the premium segment of the aftermarket in Europe and in the Mercosur area.
In 2016 suspensions accounted for approximately 36% of total revenues, while filtration contributed 34% and air & cooling 30%. Total revenues from non-European markets reached 39.2% in 2016 thanks to growth in the markets of North America and Asia, which compensated for the weakness in the Mercosur area.
As far as the main clients are concerned, the GM, Ford, Renault/Nissan, FCA and PSA groups each contributed more than 10% of Sogefi's sales revenues, with GM posting a strong increase in 2016.
