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.
With more stress to maximize production, facilities are more focused than ever on equipment performance, ease of maintenance, and Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF).
High efficiency products and solutions are a must, driving ROI decisions and plant profitability.
A leading automotive manufacturer was in the process of developing a state-of-the-art dual strand test tunnel that simulated rain and water ingress into the automobile. The conveyor required ease of maintenance, reduced wear, increased uptime, enhanced safety, limited mistracking, and fast component changeover: all of which are critical to the application.Learn More

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.
