We can say that demand is directly proportional to the rise in industrial machines which in return is related to the economic conditions of the country. We can see that as more and more awareness of green technology is arising in people demand for industrial machines in photovoltaics and wind turbine is increasing simultaneously .

Thanks Rob for such an interesting article , no doubt economy is directly related to the rise of industrial machinery. Higher demand of cars in the worldwide is spurring the requirement for more spending on toolsnd robotics in the  automotive business at the same time in rubber and plastic segments .

IMPROVED GROWTH

I feel our government could do a great deal more to insure the health of the machine tool, robotic systems, and automation industries in our country if regulations could be altered to aid efforts in bringing back manufacturing.  Industry Week had a great article two or three weeks ago about "on-shoring" and stated we were poised for double-digit growth in the machine tool industry provided the FED could ease regulations.  There were not necessarily talking about environmental issues but basic tax structure and red tape associated with industrial growth and improvements to existing facilities.  No doubt the Pacific Rim will continue growing with China the leading force.  As I recall, China had a 7.4% increase in GDP last year and is on track to improve that number.  This is, for the most part, an improvement in manufacturing and subsequent exporting. Great post Rob.

That's right, Rob, it is upward overall in the long-term, but experiences short-term cycles, so the line on the graph trends upward but it's wiggly, not straight.

OK, I think I understand now! Thanks for the clarification, Ann.

@Rob: I feel it's the trend that keep things roiling. Not sure about the numbering game though

@Rob: Yes in practical terms yes it will delay but I feel that delaying technical developments due to any instance is not advisable at all. Developments are always revenue generators. Maybe in the longer run but still an asset

Thanks Ann. I would think the multi-year trajectory on robotics has to be upward given the increasing reliance on automation. But certainly economic conditions can delay capital expenditures no matter how well argued the ROI.

That's right Liz--it's cyclic, meaning the dips and highs recur at fairly regular intervals. Clearly a different demand and purchase pattern from the industrial machines Rob reports on here.

Ann, so this is a statistical blip rather than a trend?
