Compared with large industries such as chemistry or motor vehicle industry the machinery industry is rightly considered as medium-sized. However, it is divided into three groups that shift the medium-size character in the background. Quest TechnoMarketing investigated the industry structure of the German machinery industry and published the result in the Quest Trend Magazine. In particular for the manufacturers of automation technology it may be useful to adjust the products for

Structural changes in the course of the worldwide industrial production and the …

The Quest Trend Magazine has analyzed the course of the worldwide industrial production in the last 30 years. Three structural changes became visible. They are forming the economic situation also these days. The industrial production of the USA, Japan, Germany and the European Union showed an altogether continuous growth in the 20 years from 1980 to 2000. Economic crises with a decline in industrial production occurred in an interval of

German machine-builders have been shifting their export markets since the world …

The still dominating role of the European Union countries for the machine export has dramatically been relativized since 2008. And even the export shares into the BRIC countries show up noticeable shifts. The turnover of the German machinery industry achieved its crisis low with 67.5 index points (value index of the German Federal Statistical Office) at the beginning of 2010. Then started a rapid upward movement slightly exceeding with 137.6 at

How the 10 largest automakers have internationalized their production - new from …

Since 2000 the production shares of the 10 largest automakers in the 10 largest car countries have been changing in such a way that four out of ten manufacturers do not produce any more the most automobiles in their home land.
