Valve Industry Growth Could Be Better Than Predicted

A six-month review of figures VMA collects reveals the valve industry may do better going forward than originally forecast for the year, according to VMA President Bill Sandler. When comparing the first half of 2018 with the same period in 2017, almost 60% of participants reported increased shipments. This was an increase from previous reports when less than 50% indicated increased shipments.

A recent survey of the membership also found that the mood about the economy right now is more optimistic than in the past. When asked to estimate what will happen for the full year of 2018, the survey reported 68% expect growth as opposed to the 60% of survey participants who expected growth in a previous report. All of this means VMA’s original forecast of a 1.5% increase in shipments out of U.S. facilities for the year could go higher.
