ABOUT THIS REPORT

Scope and Method


This report forecasts US manufacturers shipments in US dollars at the manufacturers
level to 2017. Total shipments are segmented in terms of:

transport equipment
metal products
electrical and electronic equipment
machinery
other durable goods such as nonmetallic mineral products
petroleum and coal products
food and beverages
chemical and allied products
plastics and rubber products
other nondurable goods such as paper products and textile mill
products.

The product scope includes both final products and interim components of those final
products. Thus, total and segment values are subject to various degrees of doublecounting.
To illustrate historical trends, total shipments are provided in an annual series from
2002 to 2012; shipments and the various segments are reported at five-year intervals
for 2007 and 2012. Forecasts emanate from the identification and analysis of pertinent
statistical relationships and other historical trends/events as well as their expected
progression/impact over the forecast period. Changes in quantities between reported
years of a given total or segment are typically provided in terms of five-year compound
annual growth rates (CAGRs). For the sake of brevity, forecasts are generally stated in
smoothed CAGR-based descriptions to the forecast year, such as shipments are
projected to rise 3.2% annually through 2017. The result of any particular year over that
period, however, may exhibit volatility and depart from a smoothed, long-term trend, as
historical data typically illustrate.
Key macroeconomic indicators are also provided at five-year intervals with CAGRs for
the years corresponding to other reported figures. Other various topics, including import
and export trends, are covered in this report. A full outline of report items by page is
available in the Table of Contents.
