Global megatrends drive our sustainability

Urbanization drives KONE’s business

The direction and shape of our industry is driven by two megatrends: urbanization and technological disruption.


The world’s cities are constantly growing. They attract billions of people and by 2050 more than two in every three people on the planet will live in urban areas. Estimates tell us that around 200,000 people move into cities across the globe each and every day, the same as 140 people every minute. It is by understanding urbanization and focusing on improvements for people that we can create better buildings, better cities and a better world.

Technological disruption

Rapid technological advancements in connectivity, mobility, and computing power are changing many aspects of our lives. Technological disruption drives change and means a faster pace of business and new expectations for ways of working. New technology gives us a great opportunity to learn new ways of working and serve our customers in smarter and more exciting ways.

Our vision and strategy

Our strategy is to deliver a performance edge to our customers by creating the best user experience with innovative People Flow® solutions.
