Trends 
Assembly plants are highly automated production lines fitted with high-tech machinery and equipment. Companies in this industry must spend large sums on their plants and equipment, with periodic reinvestment in the case of equipment failure. 

Reduced Maintenance
With more stress to maximize production, facilities are more focused than ever on equipment performance, ease of maintenance, and Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF).

Energy Efficiency
High efficiency products and solutions are a must, driving ROI decisions and plant profitability.

Segment Analysis

United States Industry Overview

Despite negative revenue gains, the industry has expanded due to increasing product innovation. In turn, operators have increased capital investment to modernized equipment. The industry is expected to continue decreasing over the five years to 2022; however, declines are projected to be softer than the previous five-year period.

Consumer Confidence Index

People will generally postpone big-ticket purchases, such as new vehicles, when consumer confidence is low. Consumer confidence plummeted during the recession; consequently, the effects flowed upstream to automakers. The Consumer Confidence Index is expected to decrease in 2017.

Demand from new car dealers

The performance of the New Car Dealers industry (IBISWorld report 44111) is largely reflective of the automotive sector as a whole. As demand for new automobiles increases, new car dealers prosper. Greater demand at the retail level will increase demand at the manufacturing level. The New Car Dealers industry is expected to increase in 2017, posing a potential opportunity for the industry.
