Rubber and plastics machines and machinery industry 2008 - 2017

The sector rubber and plastics machinery grew more strongly by 10% than machinery industry from 2014 to 2017

This report compares production and sales of rubber and plastics machines as well as their domestic and foreign sales with the machinery industry from 2008 to 2017 relating both to 2008 as the last year before the world economic crisis.

Update June 6th, 2018 - Production of rubber and plastics machines has been developing in three stages since 2008, the pre-crisis year of the last world economic crisis.


During the crisis production of rubber and plastics machines plunged deeper than that of machinery industry, but climbed up faster from the trough and exceeded quickly the pre-crisis level. In 2012 the race of catch up was accomplished.

Production of rubber and plastics machines from 2008 to 2017 compared to production of machinery industry.

In the last two years 2013 and 2014 in both the sector rubber and plastics machines and the machinery industry growth were replaced by stagnation resp. slight setbacks.


From 2014 to 2017 production of rubber and plastics machines grew by 9% more strongly than that of machinery industry.

Sales of rubber and plastics machines growing more strongly than those of machinery industry

The course of sales of rubber and plastics machines in the comparison to the machinery industry since 2008 shows likewise that the world economic crisis hit the sector stronger than the machinery industry as a whole.

But the sector could overcome this crisis faster than the machinery industry altogether. 2011 sales were already above pre-crisis level while the machinery industry could make this happen only three years later in 2014.

 

From 2014 to 2017 sales with rubber and plastics machines increased higher by 10% than those of the entire machinery industry.

Sales rubber and plastics machinery from 2008 to 2017 compared to machinery industry.

Foreign sales of rubber and plastics machines growing more strongly than those of machinery industry

The distinction of sales between domestic and foreign sales reveals since 2008 that the weal and woe of this sector are determined by foreign sales.


Foreign sales developed very dynamically in the years 2010 and 2011. Then dynamics slowed in 2012 and 2013, intensified as a setback in 2014. But during the last two years foreign sales grew again strongly.


From 2014 to 2017 foreign sales grew by 10% more strongly than those of the machinery industry.

Domestic and foreign sales with rubber and plastics machines compared to machinery industry from 2008 to 2017.

Domestic sales cannot keep pace. On the contrary, they developed below average since 2008 growing until 2012, stagnating for one year and growing again in 2014.


From 2015 to 2017 domestic sales increased by 8% while foreign sales rose by 10% more strongly than those of machinery industry.
