Conveyor and machinery industry 2008 - 2017

Conveyor’s production and sales growing slightly more strongly than those of machinery industry

Symbol picture of conveyor.

Which differences do the development of production and sales indicate in the conveyor indicates compared to the machinery industry in the years from 2008 to 2017?

August 23rd, 2016 - Production and sales in the conveyor have been differently developing in their relation to each other and related to the machinery industry. In brief:

  • Production remains longer imprisoned than the machinery industry in the economic crisis. Then it needs five years in order to keep pace with the development of the machinery industry.

  • Also sales are longer forced into crisis mode than machinery industry. After one year, however, they clearly outperform the development in the machinery industry. The foreign sales works thereby as growth engine.
Production in conveyor compared to machinery industry from 2008 to 2017.

Up to 2014 production in the machinery industry developed better than in the conveyor. However, this better development relativized itself until 2015 as production in the conveyor developed in accordance with the machinery industry maintaining it also in the first half-year 2016.


So altogether production in the conveyor has been developing above average in the years since 2011 closing the gap on the machinery industry that had been torn by the economic crisis.


Production in conveyor could grow by 3% more strongly than that in machinery industry from 2014 to 2017.

Sales in the conveyor have been developing more dynamically since 2012 than in the machinery industry

In the crisis 2009 sales in the conveyor fall less than in the machinery industry. However, they continue to fall also in 2010 like production while sales in machinery industry rise again.

Sales in conveyor compared to machinery industry from 2008 to 2017.

Since 2012 sales in conveyor have been growing more dynamically than those in the machinery industry. They exceeded the sales growth of machinery industry by 5% in the years from 2014 to 2017.

In 2017 sales of conveyor are by 22%, those of machinery industry by 9% above their pre-crisis levels.

 

 

Foreign sales as driving force for growth

As driving force for the above average sales development in conveyor operates the foreign sales. They were growing by 9% more strongly than those of machinery industry from 2014 to 2017.

Domestic and foreign sales in conveyor compared to machinery industry from 2008 to 2017.

In contrast to domestic sales of the mechanical engineering industry, domestic sales of the conveyor also succeeded in exceeding their pre-crisis level by 10% in 2017.


A separate report shows how this development affects the growth expectations up to 2020 in the conveyor sector compared to the entire machinery industry.
