Sogefi: markets and competitive positioning
Sogefi is one of the top producers of suspension components and engine systems worldwide 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 2015 suspensions accounted for approximately 37% of the groupís revenues, while filtration contributed around 36% and air & cooling 27%. The amount of total revenues from non-European markets reached 37% in 2015 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, Sogefi reported a further improvement in business with American constructors. The Ford, Renault/Nissan, PSA and FCA groups contributed an average of 12% of revenues.
