A difficult international situation, a virus, and trouble in different industries, it will not be an easy year for the machine tool industry. Find out why 2020 still holds a lot of potentials.
In March 2020, Japan's export and machine tool market decreased compared with the same period last year, and the market performance did not meet expectations.
In the first quarter of 2020, Taiwan's machinery industry was affected by the outbreak of scheduled epidemics, and machinery export orders fell.
Global automakers are out of material and shut down, this year's machine tool exports fear a decline of more than 10%.
According to the economic growth data currently released by the US Department of U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA), in the third quarter of 2019, US private consumption reached a growth rate of 2.6%.
