Global strength


Since the streamlining towards commercial vehicles was initiated more than ten years ago, the Volvo Group has significantly strengthened its positions outside the traditionally big markets of Western Europe and North America. Positions have been moved forward by acquisitions in primarily Asia and expansion of the distribution and service networks in for instance Eastern Europe and South America. In the year 2000, markets outside of Western Europe and North America accounted for 16% of Group sales. In 2013 that share had grown to 45%.
