The demand for Wärtsilä’s services and solutions in the coming twelve months is expected to be in line with the comparative period of the previous year. Demand by business area is anticipated to be as follows:
- Solid in Wärtsilä Marine Business. Wärtsilä's demand outlook for both services and equipment is supported by an extensive product mix and broad segment coverage, which limits the impact of a slower than anticipated marine market recovery.
- Solid in Wärtsilä Energy Business. The global shift towards renewable energy sources and increasing electricity demand in the emerging markets support the need for distributed and flexible power capacity. However, geopolitical risks and global uncertainty continue to affect customers’ appetite for investments. The services market outlook is supported by growth opportunities in selected regions and segments and by good order book development.
Wärtsilä’s current order book for 2019 deliveries is EUR 3,287 million (2,951). Deliveries are expected to be concentrated towards the latter part of the year.
