Manufacturing Technology Orders Continue to Make Gains

Manufacturing technology orders continued to make gains in March, according to the latest U.S. Manufacturing Technology Orders report from The Association For Manufacturing Technology (AMT). Orders were up 34.8% compared to February, and up 3.3% compared to March 2016.

Leading indicators show that promising gains for manufacturing are likely to continue. Consumer sentiment is on the rise, which will lead to more purchases of durable goods like cars, appliances, electronics, and housing. Cutting tool shipments have grown, a marker of increased productivity. Machine shop spending for capital equipment has also been on the rise, indicating that manufacturers are using their services for excess capacity.
