Economic Update

I had the privilege of attending the quarterly update of the NFPA Economic Update webinar recently. There are always many key takeaways from these sessions.  This time, I can summarize my takeaway by saying "Growth through 2016."

This is not different from what I heard at the 2014 Industry and Economic Outlook Conference put on by the NFPA in August.  I remain very optimistic by this report.  Despite a slower global economy, some sluggish growth forecasts, declining oil prices, and other concerns, it appears that the U.S. industrial economy is still bound for strength in 2015.

I understand that economic forecasts are subject to change considering all that is going on  in the world.  However, the data shows strength for next year.  The webinar shows that NFPA shipments are trending upward as is U.S. Industrial Production.  Even the mining and agricultural machinery markets could have some strength next year.

All of this bodes well for fluid power component manufacturers.


Fluid Power World Magazine and Digital Network can help your company to take advantage of a solid economic forecast by helping your company to increase brand awareness while generating qualified sales leads.  Please contact me for details.

Paul Heney says it best ...

Paul Heney does a fantastic job of guiding the fluid power content of our magazine Fluid Power World and our websites Fluid Power World, Mobile Hydraulic Tips, Pneumatic Tips, and Hose Assembly Tips.  Paul understands the industry and has a great ability to put it into words for our community.

Here is one example in particular.  At the 2014 National Fluid Power Association Industry and Economic Outlook Conference, a speaker by the name of Chuck Yengst made some very interesting comments about the future of hydraulics.  I know because I heard them.

So did Paul and he does such a nice job of explaining it in this editorial Hydraulics is not going away, not by a long shot.  This article appears in our latest edition of Fluid Power World as well as on our digital network.  Check it out.
