World Material Handling Products

ABOUT THIS REPORT

Scope & Method

This report forecasts total world demand in 2018 for material handling products by product, market, and major world region in US dollars at the manufacturers’ level. Product segments include:

industrial trucks and lifts

conveying equipment

hoists, cranes, and monorails

automated storage/retrieval systems

automated guided vehicles and other products such as material handling software, robots, and related parts and attachments.

Excluded from the scope of this report are aerial work platforms, construction-type cranes, and similar items sometimes considered material handling equipment, as well as related services (eg, equipment maintenance).

Reported markets encompass:

durable goods manufacturers

nondurable goods manufacturers

other industries such as construction and mining.

Major world regions include North America, Western Europe, Asia/Pacific, and all other regions combined. Demand by product segment is also forecast for each major world region. To illustrate historical trends world, product, market, and regional demand (including product segments) are provided for 2008 and 2013. Further, regional demand is segmented by market for 2013. Finally, world production is segmented by major world region and provided for 2008, 2013, and 2018.

Forecasts are developed via 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 “demand is projected to rise 3.2% annually through 2018.” 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.

Demand in US dollars reflects local currency inflation from period to period, including to the forecast year. Furthermore, US dollar values represent current, average annual exchange rates between local currencies and the US dollar for the historical periods,

including the base year. The forecast year, however, assumes the same exchange rate used for the base year.

Other various topics, including profiles of pertinent leading suppliers, are covered in this report. A full outline of report items by page is available in the Table of Contents.
