"Softening demand within infrastructure in particular in Europe was noted post the Russian invasion of Ukraine, as a consequence of increasing interest rates and energy prices."
The company said that demand within Sandvik Manufacturing and Machining solutions has been positive in most regions and segments except for China due to covid lock-downs and restrictions.
"At the end of February, Sandvik paused the business in Russia, followed by the decision in the second quarter to wind down completely, and consequently, the year on year financial performance has been impacted," it added.
