This week saw the MTA’s annual Forecast Seminar at which our new predictions for the UK market for both machine tools and cutting tools were presented alongside the latest edition of the global machine tool forecast. Delegates heard Ben May and Jeremy Leonard from Oxford Economics outline their latest thinking on the general economic situation and the outlook for industry at a global level, including the key risks to the forecast before Geoff Noon took the delegates through the UK specific issues around the forecast. In our article we summarises these presentations and provide the link for members to access the forecast reports and the presentations.
There is little other economic news this week but we report on the latest data on the US market for machine tools and cutting tools. The former looks to have turned a corner but this year is still expected to have a very strong outcome; tooling demand continues its slow but steady recovery, helped by an easing of supply chain problems that have restricted output in key user industries.
Finally, we will be closing the MTA Business Survey for September early next week so, with thanks to those that have responded, there is still time for the rest of you to let us have your input via our website at www.mta.org.uk/mta-business-survey-sep22.
That concludes this week’s Friday Brief. We hope you all have a great weekend, and we look forward to ‘seeing’ you again next week for the last Friday Brief on the month.
