Growth expectations in the sector building, glass, ceramic machines

Growth expectations to 2020 in the sector building, glass, ceramic machines higher than in machinery industry

Production in the building, glass and ceramic machinery sector rose sharply since 2016, while sales were falling at the same time. Both developments surpassed those in mechanical engineering. This report deals with the impact this situation had on the growth expectations up to 2020 of mechanical engineering companies in the sector.

July 2nd, 2018 - The production of building, glass and ceramic machines increased by 75% since 2016 while sales were fallen by 17%, as the sector report on building, glass and ceramic machines indicates.


The growth expectations relate to machine production. At 7.5% per year until 2020, they are clearly higher in the building, glass and ceramic machinery sector than in mechanical engineering at 5.5% p.a.

Growth expectations of the machine-builders in the sector building, glass, ceramic machines until 2020 compared to machinery industry.

The growth expectations of machine-builders in the building, glass and ceramic machinery sector are split. 


At 57%, more than half of these machine builders see no growth until 2020, but those who expect growth anticipate growth rates of more than 10% to 20% per year until 2020.


Apparently this division reflects the different development of production in the four product segments as the sector report shows: strongly increasing production figures for kneading, grinding and shredding machines, slightly increasing production of sorting and mixing machines as well as machine tools and stagnating production for machines for glass production.
