US Manufacturing Technology Consumption Report

First quarter manufacturing technology consumption up 33.7%

May 11, 2010 — March U.S. manufacturing technology consumption totaled $258.00 million, according to AMTDA, the American Machine Tool Distributors’ Association, and AMT - The Association For Manufacturing Technology. This total, as reported by companies participating in the USMTC program, was up 58.1% from February and up 49.5% from the total of $172.59 million re-ported for March 2009. With a year-to-date total of $548.53 million, 2010 is up 33.7% com-pared with 2009.

These numbers and all data in this report are based on the totals of actual data reported by companies participating in the USMTC program.

“The March increase in manufacturing technology orders is further proof that the recov-ery is accelerating,” said Peter Borden, AMTDA president. “The number is encouraging con-sidering that bank lending is still anemic and that Congress has done little to help manufac-turing, such as repassing the bonus depreciation tax bill or R&D credits. We still expect some ebb and flow for the rest of the year because of the uncertainties in the world econ-omy.”

The United States Manufacturing Technology Consumption (USMTC) report, jointly compiled by the two trade associations representing the production and distribution of manufacturing technology, provides regional and national U.S. consumption data of domes-tic and imported machine tools and related equipment. Analysis of manufacturing technol-ogy consumption provides a reliable leading economic indicator as manufacturing industries invest in capital metalworking equipment to increase capacity and improve productivity.

U.S. manufacturing technology consumption is also reported on a regional basis for five geographic breakdowns of the United States.
