Semcon

Semcon

Semcon is an international technology firm that offers a unique combination of digital and physical solutions transforming its customer’s products, services and systems. New products, production units and aftermarket solutions are developed using the latest technology within digitalisation, and with a focus on sustainability. The operations are divided into two business areas: Engineering & Digital Services and Product Information. Customers are found on a global level, mainly in the life science, manufacturing, automotive, telecom and energy industries. Semcon offers both specialist competences and managed services, with offices in seven different countries.

Semcon operates in markets with significant trends that provide opportunities for growth. In the automotive industry, the main trends are sustainability, with focus on electrification, and autonomous driving, which includes other safety and communication technologies. In the industrial sector, the main trend is Industry 4.0, including connectivity, flexibility and efficiency. The life science sector is exposed to trends such as a growing global middle class and an aging population. In recent years, Semcon has started to move away from the dependence on automotive services and it is putting a greater focus on digital services.

Semcon is largely dependent on investment activities in its sectors, such as automotive, industry and life science, which can experience extensive drawdowns in recessions. In addition, Semcon needs to attract and retain qualified employees to sustain its operations. There is a growing shortage of engineers in Sweden, which could lead to higher salaries and difficulties employing and retaining staff as prospective employees have greater bargaining power.
