Opportunities in our business landscape


The world evolves at a rapid pace, making it more important than ever for the Volvo Group to have an informed understanding of our global operating environment. As part of our business and sustainability strategies, we continually analyze megatrends and regional variations to assess their impact on our Group and to seek new business development opportunities. 

From our perspective, the most significant trends driving our work to sustainably meet transport and infrastructure needs today and tomorrow are:

  1. Demographic growth and urbanization
  2. Climate change
  3. Resource scarcity
  4. Safety and security
  5. Competition for skills.
