The major competitors of ThyssenKrupp

To get to know ThyssenKrupp better, it is also important to know its main competitors in the market. We therefore propose that you discover the adversaries it faces in various segments.


First of all, we will of course follow the global steel group ArcelorMittal which is based in Luxembourg. It is currently the world's largest steel producer with over 96 million tonnes produced each year. The group also ranks 156th in the Fortune Global 500 list of the world's largest companies. The ArcelorMittal group was created by Mittal Steel Corporation's takeover of Arcelor in 2006, which was financed by large international loans. Currently, the group employs over 198,517 people, almost half of whom are in Europe.

US Steel

Another serious competitor to ThyssenKrupp is the United States Steel Corporation, an American steel producer that also has a large presence in Central Europe. The group was founded in 1901 by JP Morgan and Elbert H Gary and was formed from the merger of the Federal Steel Company and the Carnegie steel mills.


In the lift segment, we find the competitor Kone, a Finnish company specialised in this field as well as in escalators and automatic doors. This company currently has more than 55,000 employees in more than 60 different countries.

Otis Elevator Company

Also in this segment is the American lift company Otis, which is the world leader in this segment and the number two manufacturer of escalators under the name Escalator. The group was founded in 1853 and was acquired by United Technologies in 1976. It will become independent again in April 2020 with the merger of Raytheon and United Technologies.


Finally, the last competitor of ThyssenKrupp to be known is the Swiss industrial group Schindler. This group was founded in Switzerland in 1874 and is currently the world leader in the escalator and moving walkway segment as well as the world's number two in the lift sector. It has rapidly expanded internationally and is currently present in around 100 countries. It also employs around 60,000 people, mainly in Europe.

The major partners of ThyssenKrupp

The ThyssenKrupp group has also based its expansion strategy on establishing strategic partnerships with several other companies of different sizes. Here's more about the major recent alliances between ThyssenKrupp and other entities that may influence its share price on the stock market.

De Nora

During 2013, ThyssenKrupp announced the rapid creation of a joint venture with the Italian company De Nora in the field of electrolysis processes by merging their construction, purchasing and engineering activities for electrolysis factories.

Tata Steel

In 2017 Tata Steel announced that it had initiated serious discussions for the establishment of strategic partnerships, mainly with ThyssenKrupp, aimed at creating a joint venture for its steel assets in Great Britain.

Airbus Group

Also in 2017, the German industrial conglomerate ThyssenKrupp announced the acquisition of all the shares held by the Airbus Group in their joint venture Atlas Elektronik. The latter specializes in manufacturing equipment for military boats and army submarines.

The factors in favour of a rise in the ThyssenKrupp share price:

First of all, the ThyssenKrupp group benefits from an undeniable advantage from a geographical point of view since it has a strong international presence. The company operates in over 80 different countries around the world. In total and through the various subsidiaries of the group, over 150,000 people work for the company.

ThyssenKrupp’s expansion strategy is based on large and frequent company takeovers in these countries. Thanks to this strategy, the group now owns no less than 720 companies, which allows it to have many sources of income.

Although the ThyssenKrupp Company’s headquarters remain based in Germany, the group outsources its production a lot. To date, the vast majority of the company's 2,200 production sites are located in countries other than Germany, as is a large part of its offices and service bases. This allows ThyssenKrupp to better control its costs and make significant savings.

ThyssenKrupp also relies heavily on its innovation strategy to generate additional revenue and maintain or even gain market shares. It invests a great deal in research and development and employs over 3,000 engineers, technicians and scientists who work in the company's 85 development centres.

Finally, the ThyssenKrupp group can also count on its wide range of very varied products in order to meet all the needs of its customers and limit the risk factors linked to a single type of product or service.

The factors in favour of a drop in the ThyssenKrupp share price:

As you saw above, the ThyssenKrupp group benefits from countless advantages to enable its future growth and guarantee interesting incomes, which should boost the growth of its share on the stock market. But the company doesn't just have qualities so you should also know its weaknesses before you start trading in its share. Here is a summary of its main weaknesses.

First of all, the ThyssenKrupp Company has suffered some litigation in recent years which has of course had a negative impact on its brand image and on its sales. This particularly involves legal proceedings, some of which are still pending and which significantly threaten the company's profit margins.

Finally, the last and not the least drawback refers to the group's financial results, which tend to show a slight decline in recent years. This factor obviously has a negative impact on investor morale.
