Wärtsilä's prospects for 2020 reinstated

Wärtsilä expects the near-term demand in the marine and energy markets to improve from current levels. However, visibility remains limited, and the prevailing market conditions make the outlook uncertain.

Based on its current order book, Wärtsilä expects net sales for 2020 to decline by approximately 10% (EUR 5,170 million in 2019). Profitability is expected to continue to be burdened by the effects of COVID-19 and, while service demand is anticipated to improve, the seasonal pick-up is unlikely to be as strong as in previous years.

Wärtsilä's prospects

The markets in which Wärtsilä operates are being affected by the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and the measures taken to contain the global pandemic. This will materially impact the demand for Wärtsilä’s solutions and services, as well as the company’s financial performance in 2020. The full financial impact cannot be quantified at this time, as it will depend on the duration and severity of the measures taken to contain the virus spread, and the pace of the eventual market recovery in different geographies. Consequently, Wärtsilä withdrew its market outlook for 2020 on 31 March 2020 pending an improvement in visibility.

The demand for Wärtsilä’s services and solutions in the coming 12 months is expected to be somewhat below that of the previous 12 months. Demand by business area is anticipated to be as follows:

  • Soft in Wärtsilä Marine Business, as low vessel contracting is expected to affect equipment ordering activity.
  • Soft in Wärtsilä Energy Business. While some recovery in equipment order intake is anticipated, market conditions remain challenging.
  • Wärtsilä’s current order book for 2020 deliveries is EUR 3,571 million (3,696), comprised mainly of equipment deliveries.


2019

This is the prospects statement from the Stock Exchange Release published on October 25th, 2019.

The demand for Wärtsilä’s services and solutions in the coming 12 months is expected to be somewhat below that of the previous 12 months. Demand by business area is anticipated to be as follows:

  • Soft in Wärtsilä Marine Business, due to lower vessel contracting volumes and a decline in the demand for scrubber solutions from last year’s exceptionally high level. Activity in the marine services market is expected to be stable.
  • Weak in Wärtsilä Energy Business (downgraded from soft). Market conditions in the energy industry are challenging, as the rapidly changing energy landscape is creating uncertainty among customers. The geopolitical and economic environment is further slowing decision-making. The demand for energy services is expected to be stable.        

Wärtsilä’s current order book for 2019 deliveries is EUR 1,708 million (1,364), comprised mainly of equipment deliveries. The comparable operating result for the full year 2019 is expected to be approximately EUR 100 million lower than in the previous year (EUR 577 million in 2018).

Wärtsilä's prospects

The demand for Wärtsilä’s services and solutions in the coming 12 months is expected to be somewhat below that of the previous 12 months (previously in-line). Demand by business area is anticipated to be as follows:

  • Soft in Wärtsilä Marine Business. The demand outlook has been downgraded from solid, due to lower vessel contracting volumes and an anticipated decline in the demand for scrubber solutions from last year’s exceptionally high level. Activity in the marine services market is expected to continue.
  • Soft in Wärtsilä Energy Business. The demand outlook has been downgraded from solid, as market conditions in the energy industry remain challenging, with geopolitical risks and economic uncertainty affecting customers’ appetite for investments. The demand for energy services remains healthy.

Wärtsilä’s current order book for 2019 deliveries is EUR 2,613 million (2,336). Deliveries are expected to be concentrated to the last quarter of the year.

Wärtsilä's prospects

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.
