In this section you can find more information on Valmet's five business lines: Services, Flow Control, Automation Systems, Pulp and Energy and Paper. The business lines' key figures, market overviews and growth drivers are presented in detail.
At Valmet, Services, Flow Control and Automation Systems are considered to be “stable” businesses, as they represent rather stable and slightly growing markets that are driven by the size of the installed base and mill operating rates. Currently, the increasing consumption of board, tissue and pulp in particular, as well as demand for bioenergy, are boosting production growth, which is creating new demand for Valmet’s services and automation.
Pulp and Energy and Paper business, such as board, paper and tissue machines, pulp mills, and biomass power boilers are referred to as “capital” businesses. They are driven by new investments in machinery and mills, which makes these businesses more cyclical and volatile compared to the more stable services and automation businesses.
