Market environment and competitive position

Metso is well positioned in all of our customer industries globally.

Our customers’ and their customers’ needs derive from certain global trends – urbanization of communities, a circular economy, digitalization, an ever-increasing need for minerals, and the growing demand for oil and gas. We need raw materials to maintain our modern way of living. Many types of materials and waste can also be reused after the appropriate processing. Developing energy-efficient and cost-effective processes for refining different waste streams is a big business opportunity, as the global risk of material scarcity is continuously increasing.

Mining companies today are faced with declining ore grades and more complex ore bodies, as well as increasing environmental and safety requirements. In the quest for capital efficiency, continuous performance improvement has become the biggest challenge in the industry.

To accommodate growing populations, more houses, parks and roads, among others, are needed. Many aggregates producers are now studying the possibility of producing crushed sand, as natural sand deposits located near growth centers are being depleted and environmental regulations are becoming stricter.

Paper mills, power plants and oil refineries have countless needs for valves. As they evolve to stay competitive and to respond to new emissions regulations, they are constantly seeking ways to make their processes more reliable and efficient.

Products and services

We provide our customers with world-leading products and services built on technological excellence, experience and the highest safety standards.

In mining, we offer equipment, services, spare and wear parts and process knowledge for the whole value chain of mining, from the mine to the finished products of mineral concentrates or mineral pellets. Large-scale project deliveries are typical for the mining industry.

In aggregates, we supply our customers with energy-efficient mobile and stationary rock crushing plants, screens, feeders and conveyors, as well as expert and maintenance services. Metso’s services and spare and wear parts ensure high-quality end products and secure continuous production.

Our customers

We serve a variety of customers in different industries, all processing raw materials.

In mines and mineral processing plants, both global and regional miners trust our mining solutions and pumps to process minerals efficiently and safely. Ultimately these minerals are utilized in countless everyday applications, e.g. lithium in mobile phones and copper in electric cars .

In quarries, our deep process know-how and our technology and strong service capabilities are used for the production of high-quality aggregates and manufactured sand. The end products are then used in, for example, construction and road building.

Scrap yards, automotive manufacturers, and other household or industrial waste processing facilities use our efficient solutions to take care of shearing, baling, briquetting, shredding and pre-shredding of virtually every type of scrap. Recycled material can be used, for example, to produce alternative fuels.

In petrochemical plants and in pulp and paper mills, our valves, equipment and services provide reliability and maximum performance in controlling the flow of pulp and other liquid media and fluids.
