U.S. Manufacturing Technology Orders totaled $383.8 million in October 2020, an increase of 3.7% from September 2020, and the highest dollar value since December 2019, according to the latest U.S. Manufacturing Technology Orders report published by AMT – The Association For Manufacturing Technology. October 2020 orders decreased 1.9% from October 2019; however, this was smallest year over year difference in 2020 and a stark contrast to the 43.1% year over year decrease seen in May 2020. Total orders through October reached $3.07 billion, a decrease of 20.2% from 2019.
“所有指标都指出了制造技术部门的经济复苏的延续，”AMT总裁Douglas K. Woods说。“去年这个时候，许多行业的工业机械订单很强。模具和模具部门对第二个直连月产生了强劲的增长，订单是典型数量的倍数，并且强烈指示模具和模具制造正在被重新蒸发。有蓬松的医疗设备的安全用品的需求，以及电器等消费品的持续强劲增长，也有助于这种增长。消费产品因持续强劲的住房市场而增长;住房开始在过去两个月的开始高于2007年以来的任何时间。“
“Additionally, we’re seeing large investments in capital equipment in the automotive sector with substantial investments going to EVs and hybrid vehicles, while some traditional manufacturing lines are just being refurbished versus replaced. The rail industry is also investing – largely to refurbish both rail cars and infrastructure – as transport of goods by rail to centralized warehouses for home delivery continues to grow as a consequence of the pandemic.”
“Unfortunately, the news is still not promising in the lagging aerospace and oil & gas sectors, as these sectors are still experiencing weak growth, and we do not foresee any significant uptick in growth in either sector in the foreseeable future.”
