Segment Analysis

United States Industry Overview

The unit handling industry manufactures conveyors and conveying equipment for a wide array of industries such as baggage handling, postal & parcel centers, warehouses and distribution centers. Industry revenue is determined by the performance of downstream industries and markets that bolster industry demand.

Industrial Production Index

An increase in the industrial production index indicates an increase in manufacturing activity, which in turn drives demand for new or replacement conveyor equipment.

Demand from the transportation and warehousing sector has increased at an annualized rate of 2.1% over the five years to 2016, with strengthening activity in air, sea and road freight resulting in higher demand for conveyors.

US economic growth is forecast to be moderate but steady in the five years to 2021, and conveyor manufacturing industry is set to benefit from stronger demand in downstream freight, manufacturing and construction markets. Companies in the industry will pursue specialized production for niche markets to stay competitive in this fragmented industry.
