MTA Forecast

Understanding what the economy and the market is likely to do in the future can be hugely beneficial to businesses. The MTA commissions Oxford Economics, one of the world’s leading economic forecasting consultancies, to produce a forecast for the UK’s machine tool and cutting tool markets. In addition, the MTA contributes, along with partner organisations from across the world, to a Global machine tool forecast. These documents are only available to MTA members and should not be shared more widely.
