Company Description

Sector: Industrials
Industry: Specialty Industrial Machinery

Emerson Electric is a multi-industrial conglomerate that operates under two business platforms: Automation Solutions and Commercial and Residential Solutions. The latter is further subdivided into two operating segments: climate technologies, which sells HVAC and refrigeration products and services, as well as tools and home products, which sells tools and compressors, among other products and services.

The company is a global leader in bringing technology and engineering together to provide innovative solutions for customers in a wide range of industrial, commercial and consumer markets around the world. Sales by geographic destination in 2019 were: the Americas, 55 percent; Europe, 17 percent; and Asia, Middle East & Africa, 28 percent.

SWOT Analysis


Emerson has a long history of adapting to changing environments. Big changes have taken place the last few years; shedding business and focusing businesses that fit their two new platforms.

EMR has a strong global presence (more that 150 countries) with approximately one-half of EMR revenues coming from overseas. The company has a deep and varied product portfolio complemented by a stellar reputation and strong brand. It boasts a large “moat” in field instrument segments and asset management systems.


High research and development costs. EMR’s large customers have high bargaining power.


New technologies and obsolescence of older customers plants provide opportunities for substantial growth in developed nations. Expansion into new frontier markets.


There is intense competition in some of EMR’s business segments, particularly industrial automation. In addition, as a truly global company, they are subject to economic (i.e. global pandemics) and political risks affiliated with foreign production facilities.
